Black Friday Predictions: Home Depot Black Friday Ad for 2017

Black Friday Predictions: Home Depot Black Friday Ad for 2017

Ready to start some major upgrades to your home, or just get ready for the holiday season? Well, Home Depot has you covered, offering amazing deals on tools, appliances, decorations and much more. Be the envy of your friends with your upgraded appliances or fantastic holiday decorations, when you get the best deals at this year's Black Friday at Home Depot.

When will we see the 2017 Home Depot Black Friday ad?

Some retailers tolerate Black Friday ad leaks, simply because of the free buzz that it creates for its stores. Often, they are willing to let the leaks pass with no pushback. Home Depot, however, is not one of those retailers, as they have sent out preemptive “cease and desist” orders to sites such as Brad’s Deals, threatening legal action should the ad be published before its official publication. This means that there is little to no chance that you will see the Home Depot Black Friday circular before its intended publishing date. In the past, the ads became available on the following dates:

  • Thursday, November 28, 2013
  • Wednesday, November 26, 2014
  • Wednesday, November 25, 2015
  • Wednesday, November 23, 2016

Home Depot usually holds their cards close when it comes to the publication of their Black Friday ad, and their usual publication date is the day before Thanksgiving. We do not expect that to change this year, meaning Wednesday, November, 23rd should be the expected publication date for the circular.

When it does arrive, you will be able to find it in our 2017 Black Friday Shopping Guide.

What will Home Depot’s Black Friday hours be?

For the past two years, Home Depot has been opening its doors at 6 a.m. on Black Friday. The previous four years before that they opened their doors at 5 a.m., so it is quite evident that Home Depot believes the early bird gets the worm. Or in this case, the deals. It would take some major happenings for Home Depot to drift away from these early opening times. We firmly expect Home Depot to follow the trend of the past two years and open Black Friday at 6 a.m.

If you have your eyes on purchasing major appliances, you’re in luck and can score some deals before Black Friday. Home Depot usually has an appliance sale in early to mid-November in which major appliances are set at their Black Friday prices. So, if you're in the market for a refrigerator or washer and dryer set, be on the lookout for early deals. You can also shop Black Friday deals online starting Thanksgiving Day at 6 a.m. EST.
