GameStop Black Friday 2018 Sale Begins Online on Wednesday

The GameStop Black Friday deals will be available earlier than ever.

The GameStop Black Friday 2018 ad dropped on Sunday with some new unseen Black Friday deals on gaming hardware. The most important information in the GameStop ad are the start times of the GameStop Black Friday sales. Never before has GameStop started this early in stores and especially online.

The GameStop Black Friday 2018 deals will be available online starting at 9 pm ET, this is 6 pm PT on Wednesday, Nov. 21 at As far as I remember, GameStop has never called out a specific time the Black Friday online sale begins. Setting a specific start time requires confidence that the servers will not break down under the sudden load. GameStop has had major issues in past years with failing servers.

To prepare, make sure you have your GameStop account in order and log in before the 9 pm ET start time. In addition, get the GameStop Shopping app and configure it to be ready for Black Friday. It's often the case the that the shopping apps are more reliable during high traffic events such as Black Friday.

The GameStop Black Friday 2018 sale in stores begins one hour earlier than last year. You can already shop at GameStop locations on Thanksgiving Day at 3 pm local time.

GameStop's unique Black Friday 2018 deal that is so far not matched by other retailers is a free $50 gift card with the purchase of any new Nintendo Switch, Xbox One or PlayStation 4 system. The exclusions are the currently already available $199 PS4 Spider-man and the $199 Xbox One S 1TB Minecraft Bundles. The $299.99 Nintendo Switch Mario Kart Deluxe Bundle qualifies for the $50 gift card Black Friday offer. You basically get the Nintendo Switch Mario Kart Bundle for $250 in the GameStop Black Friday 2018 sale, making it the best Black Friday 2018 Nintendo Switch deal.

You get the free $50 gift card with the purchase of Xbox One S bundles that are $70 cheaper with Black Friday pricing like the Xbox One X Fallout 76 Bundle, Xbox One S NBA 2K19 bundle. With the gift card, your overall savings are $120 on new Xbox One bundles.

The GameStop Black Friday ad doesn't highlight specific Sony PS4 consoles that qualify for the $50 gift card deal. We confirmed that the free $50 gift card deal is also available on all Sony PS4 consoles including Sony PS4 Pro.
