Black Friday has started at Monki, so what offers are on, how long do you have to shop them and what is worth buying? I’m sharing everything you need to know, right here. Monki is part of the H&M group, which includes Weekday, COS, Arket, & Other Stories and of course H&M. Many of the brands opt in to Black Friday, offering huge discounts for a limited time only.
But despite being well-known fast fashion brands, not all of them offer discounts. For example, Arket usually bypasses Black Friday and Cyber Monday for sustainability reasons. Similarly Monki opted out of Black Friday in 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022 in a bold move that left many impressed (albeit disappointed).
Despite their move towards sustainability in previous years, 2023 marks a shift for the high street brand. Monki is taking part in Black Friday, and if you’re a subscriber, you can make the most of the discounts now. Keep reading for what you need to know.

What is Black Friday?
Black Friday is an annual shopping event, which takes place on the last Friday of November and the day after Thanksgiving. It sees hundreds of brands across industries including fashion, beauty, tech and home decor offering huge discounts ahead of Christmas, allowing shoppers to make the most of the discounts to buy gifts for their loved ones.
Cyber Monday happens the following week, and as the name suggests this is when many of the discounts are held exclusively online. Following this, all prices return to normal.
When is Black Friday?
Black Friday happens on the last Friday in November, which lands on the 24th of 2023. Cyber Monday then takes place the following week. In 2023, that’s November 27th.
Will Monki take part?
Despite Monki skipping Black Friday over the last few years, the brand is taking part in 2023 and the sale is now on. Newsletter subscribers can get 20% off everything when they spend £40 or more using the code WOW20.
It looks like there’s more to come, as the brand’s dedicated Black Friday page reads: “The Black Friday sale period starts with Singles Day, 11 November, continues with Black Friday, and ends on 27 November with Cyber Monday. We don’t want to spoil the surprise – but these weeks will be filled with a variety of AH-MAZE-ING deals & discounts.”
This is the first year they’ve taken part in Black Friday since 2019. In 2021, they posted on Instagram, saying, ‘Dear Monki friends. In 2019, we said bye-bye to Black Friday. To continue being relevant to you – our amazing community – this year won’t be any different. This means that for the third year in a row, Monki will not have any Black Friday deals. You will be able to visit our stores and monki.com as usual. Love, Monki 💘.’
The brand opted out of the shopping event in 2020 too, sharing a similar ‘Black Fri-Nay’ announcement, saying: ‘Our stores and monki.com will be open as usual, but there will be no Black Friday deals. Instead, we will as always offer amazing fashion at great prices.’
What discounts can we expect in 2023?
As Monki have opted out for so many years, it’s difficult to predict what will be offered this year. What we do know is that the discounts will get better and better. While there’s 20% off now, this could increase.
The brand has dropped some hints on their dedicated Black Friday page. They wrote: “The featured items will vary but let us assure you that it will be something from every category during this Black Friday period. It’s safe to say that all ur seasonal must-haves will be secured.” The brand is also urging shoppers excited about Black Friday to sign up to their newsletter.
