When Does the Next Zara Sale Start in 2023? Our Prediction

Everything you need to know about shopping the sale at your favourite brand.

Last Updated on September 24, 2023

Wondering when the next Zara sale will start? So are we – but we can use last year’s sale dates as a rough guide. Zara’s new in section is bursting with exciting arrivals every single week, but if you’re on a budget, you may be excited about shopping the next huge sale, when thousands of Zara’s best items will be available at up to 70% off. The summer sale kicked off in June and is now over, making way for all the juicy new autumn winter pieces – but it won’t be long before the next sale happens.

Keep your eyes peeled on the Special Prices section too, where the brand sometimes has a few really good offers on a select number of pieces. With the cost of living crisis reducing our spending, shopping smarter has never been more important if you want to save some pennies. So as Zara’s most loyal customer, let me share my wisdom and fill you in on all my secrets.

When does the next Zara sale start?

Judging from the past few years when Zara’s sales have followed a very similar schedule, we’re predicting the next major sale to happen from Christmas Day. This kicks off the January sale, which lasts throughout the first month of the year and sees up to 70% off nearly all lines. But before then, there’s another chance to get some money off on Black Friday, which this year lands on Friday, 24th November. The past few years have been Zara offering a blanket discount of 20% off for one day only. Last year, they opted out of Cyber Monday.

As a general rule, Zara’s sale always kicks off on the app before starting online an hour later. It then goes into stores the following day.

When does the Zara sale end?

The sale tends to last until most pieces sell out, by which point they go into the Special Prices section. So our prediction for the end date of the Zara winter sale is around mid-February. This is just speculation, as this has been the case over the past few years. I recommend buying what you want as soon as possible to avoid disappointment, as the sale tends to be very popular.

Predicted Zara sale dates in 2023

January sale: The January sale started in on Christmas Day in 2022, and continued throughout January.

Summer sale: The Zara summer sale started on June 21st and was exclusively online, before moving to stores on June 22nd.

Black Friday: We’re expecting Zara to take part in Black Friday, as they have in previous years. Black Friday takes place on Friday, 24th November in 2023. We predict Zara will offer 20% off everything for one day only. Zara doesn’t usually take part in Cyber Monday.

Christmas Day: Zara’s winter sale usually kicks off on Christmas Day, which as we know is December 25th.

Sadly Zara doesn’t take part in any other sale dates throughout the year.

How much can you save?

You can expect to save up to 70% off during the Zara sale. It usually starts at around 50% off, before the brand ups the discounts as the sale continues. As I’ve mentioned though, it’s worth buying what you want as soon as you see it to avoid disappointment.

Our top tips for shopping the Zara sale

First and foremost, don’t wait for Zara’s sale to start before you purchase your most-loved piece. I say this because much of the time when something from Zara sells out, it isn’t restocked. Obviously if you’re looking months ahead this point stands, whereas the day before the sale it makes sense to wait until the following day and make sure you’re at the right place at the right time.

Secondly, download the app and start adding your most wanted items to your favourites list. This is because the sale always starts on the app first, whether an hour before or a full 24 hours ahead of the in-store sale, so it pays to have it.

But skipping IRL shopping isn’t advised. If you miss out on something you’re desperate to buy, check out your local Zara as it might still be there. As many people choose to shop online these days, you’re more likely than ever to discover gems in-store.

Can you return sale items?

You have 30 days to return items bought online and in store, but after this period ends you won’t be able to return your items. As you may or may not know, Zara now charge for returns so it’s also a good idea to try before you buy in-store. If you’re stuck or need more information, make sure to read about how to return Zara items in our trusty guide.

Do Zara ever offer discount codes?

Unfortunately I’ve never come across a discount code for Zara, but if that changes we’ll be sure to let you know. If you want further information, you can read our guide about Zara discount codes.

Does Zara Home have sales?

Yep. The Zara Home sale follows the same pattern as the clothing sale, with huge discounts on lighting, rugs, cushions, furniture and more. You can save money on their interiors pieces during Black Friday and from Christmas Day, 2023.

What is the best day to shop at Zara?

According to Who What Wear, Zara is restocked twice weekly – usually Mondays and Thursdays. The worst day is said to be Saturday, so make sure you’re doing your shopping during the week.
