Newegg Black Friday 2018: Premier membership discounts, early deals, more

Updated 10/31: Newegg just released some new information regarding its Black November sale event. This sale will run all month and feature new deals on a rotating schedule. Keep reading for more information.

Newegg Black Friday 2018 will be a go-to for many when it comes to building custom computers and buying PC or console gaming accessories. Over the years, Newegg has expanded from its core computer component offerings to consoles and even home goods. Competing with Amazon, GameStop, Walmart, and even Best Buy this Black Friday won’t be easy for this online retailer, but we expect Newegg to have some killer deals this holiday season.

When is Black Friday at Newegg?

Just in, Newegg is starting its Black November sales starting November 1st. This will be a month-long sale with new deals popping up just about every day. You can visit Newegg’s landing page frequently starting November 1st to see what new deals are available.

Black Friday is November 23rd, 2018 at Newegg. Last year Newegg started its sales on the Monday prior and ran through the Saturday following. There are bound to be early deals from other retailers this year. This could prompt Newegg to start some discounts sooner than previous years. Each Black Friday the sales start days, and sometimes even weeks before Thanksgiving it seems. What used to be a one-day-only sale has turned into a week-long ordeal. This gives consumers a greater chance of scoring their favorite product at a discount.

When will the Newegg Black Friday ad be released?

Last year, we posted the Newegg Black Friday ad on November 10th. That was a full 10 days prior to the sales starting, and we can expect about the same this year. This gives shoppers plenty of time to plan out their schedules for purchasing. Since Newegg is an online retailer, you can browse all of these deals from the comfort of your own home. Be sure to stay locked to our Games/Apps and Black Friday 2018 Guides as much as two weeks ahead of the big day so you don’t miss a thing.

Free Shipping at Newegg

Newegg partners with ShopRunner, which PayPal members can bag a free 2-year membership to before the big shopping holiday. There’s also the Newegg Premier memberships that will run you $50 for the year (or just $20 for 3 months if you want to be covered there). Both programs will score you free shipping but keep in mind that Newegg often offers no-cost delivery on many items throughout its online store.

How to save at Newegg on Black Friday

Newegg Premier will be the only method of saving outside of discounts detailed about during the sale itself. Premier members will receive exclusive sales, free returns, rush processing, special alerts, and waived restocking fees if you join Newegg’s discount program. Students can even save on Newegg Premier, knocking a 1-year membership down to $30 from its normal $50 price.

Will there be Newegg Doorbusters?

Though we didn’t really see any doorbusters at Newegg last year, that doesn’t necessarily mean there won’t be any this year. Most sales will run through the entire week, but we expect to see a few time-limited sales pop up here and there around Black Friday.

Will Newegg price match on Black Friday?

Though Newegg normally price matches, it’s likely that the online retailer won’t do so during Black Friday. On its price match page, Newegg states: “Not valid on exclusive, major-holiday sales event prices offered by or other retailers, …” This leads us to believe that Newegg won’t be price matching at all this Black Friday.

What will be on sale at Newegg Black Friday?

Last year we saw TVs, home theater systems, PC components, phones, monitors, smart home gear, and more on sale. Nest Thermostat dropped to $139, along with Xbox One discounts, robotic vacuums, and more.

We’re expecting to see these products return to the previous pricing or below this year. The Xbox One X and PS4 Pro will most likely see price reductions at all major retailers, which will likely include Newegg. No matter what you’re shopping for this Black Friday, Newegg will likely have a great discount on it.
