Our expert fashion and shopping writers always know where to find the best Gucci Black Friday deals and have previously found offers of up to 75% off on clothing, handbags, eyewear, perfumes and accessories.

A highly sought after label, Gucci are known for making some of the best designer bags, infusing Italian craftmanship with directional design and luxury, statement finishes. From Gucci's interlocking GG logo to its iconic Web stripe, a Gucci purchase is instantly recognizable and something to cherish.

This year Black Friday is taking place on 24 November 2023 and while Gucci itself does not participate in the pre-Christmas sale, plenty of the luxury brand's stockists do, so we're hoping to see more great deals on everything from the best Gucci bags to the brand's top designer sunglasses, trending eyeglasses, fragrances and beauty.

Will there be a Gucci Black Friday sale in 2023?

Gucci itself has not taken part in the Black Friday sales either online or in-store in the past, meaning that it is highly unlikely that they will take part in the Black Friday sales this year. 

However, just as in previous years, other retailers that stock Gucci are set to hold Black Friday sales and offers again this year, meaning you can still find Gucci discounts over Black Friday and the Cyber Weekend.

Last year's best deals came from a mix of big-name department stores and outlets in the US and so we're hoping to see more great Gucci Black Friday deals this year from the likes of Nordstrom Rack, Macy's, Saks 5th Avenue and The Outnet. There were also some great Gucci eyewear deals last year on Net-a-Porter, so we'll be keeping an eye out for discounts on Gucci items there in November this year too. 

What Gucci products were in the Black Friday sale last year?

Last year saw some great discounts across the board on Gucci, with fragrances and sunglasses showing the biggest reductions in price. There were also some notable discounts on some much-coveted Gucci accessories. 

Major retailers such as Saks off 5th and Premium Outlets offered huge price cuts on Gucci handbags, clothing, accessories, and more for up to 75% off.

Gucci's G-Timeless Floral Print GG Strap Watch was on offer for $720 at Nordstrom, 40% off its original $1,200 price tag. There were also perfume deals of up to 41% off on Gucci fragrances such as the Bloom Acqua Di Fiori Toilette Spray at Premium Outlets and a two-piece eau de parfum gift set. We even saw $103 price cuts on Gucci belt bags and nearly $300 off handbags and totes.

The best Gucci Black Friday deals were saved until last though, and we saw the biggest discounts on Cyber Monday, with prices slashed further on clothing, accessories, and fragrance across retailers. In the US, discounts reached up to 80% off.

The majority of retailers started their sales on or around the 25 November, which was the official start of Black Friday last year, which then turned into what is commonly known as Cyber Weekend. The final day of this particular sale period for most retailers culminates in Cyber Monday, which is always the first Monday after Black Friday and this year falls on 28 November. This is expected to be the one and only day of Cyber Monday sales and most retailers will finish their offers at the end of this day, giving shoppers one last opportunity to snap up a bargain.

Top tips for finding the best Gucci Black Friday deals in 2023

  • Shop around: While Gucci usually doesn't launch an official sale, other retailers stocking the brand have in previous years. Sales often start earlier than official launch dates, particularly when it comes to Black Friday or Cyber Monday, so start checking a couple of weeks before. If you see a product you like, be a savvy shopper and check if there's a better discount at another retailer. 
  • Focus on key categories: When it comes to Gucci deals, you'll find the steepest price cuts on accessories, eyewear, fragrances, and bags. With womenswear, you can find premium pieces, like dresses, elsewhere for less.
  • Research the retailer you're shopping from: When you find the Gucci piece you're after for a discounted price, be sure to check the retailer's shipping costs, delivery times, and returns policy, as it can vary greatly and high shipping costs can bump up the overall cost.

Does Gucci hold resale value? 

Yes, Gucci pieces often hold their value at resale, sometimes selling for even more than the original price. However there are certain factors that influence this, such as whether the style is a limited run, consumer demand, and the condition of the piece means - so price and resale value can differ on a case-by-case basis. 

Designer handbag specialists Rebag found that these are the top five Gucci bags that hold their value at resale:

  • Gucci GG Marmont Shoulder Bag
  • Gucci Neo Vintage Flap Belt Bag
  • Gucci GG Marmont Flap Bag
  • Gucci Neo Vintage Camera Messenger Bag
  • Gucci Vintage Double Belt Bag

The shopping platform and publication reported in March 2022 that the above bags all held their value at resale between 100-120%. 

When looking at which Gucci bags might hold their value at resale, choose classic handbag trends that won't go out of style, or look out for limited edition pieces. 

"Limited edition pieces are also something to consider when buying a handbag. Rarity drives up the price. A special colorway or limited edition collection for example increases demand," says Sophie Hersan, co-founder of Vestiaire Collective.

Does Gucci offer refunds?

Yes, Gucci offers a full refund for both online and in-store purchases within 30 days. The brand's website states, "The return window for an online purchase is 30 days - ten days for beauty products or corporate gifts - from the delivery date, while the window for in-store returns is 14 days."

The policy differs for the Gucci Outlet store, which only offers an exchange policy. Items purchased at the Gucci Outlet can't be refunded, so if you exchange an item that is less expensive than your original purchase, you will have to buy something else to make up the difference, or lose your money.

Can you return Gucci items bought during the Black Friday sale?

As Gucci itself does not participate in Black Friday, any Gucci deals will be available from a series of different retailers and all will have their own individual returns policies on items bought over this period. Many stores also insist on items being returned via the method of purchase. That means if you bought an item online, this is often the way item has to be returned. You may also need to return it with all the original packaging and make sure not to remove any labels until you are certain you want to keep your item. It is always best to check the terms and conditions for returns on each site that you are looking to make a purchase on before buying.
