If you’re into pop culture, anime, music or fantasy books and movies, you’ll jive with Hot Topic’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. While Black Friday usually sees deals on select items, Hot Topic has been known to slash prices sitewide for Cyber Monday.
Early Black Friday deals from Hot Topic
Some of the best deals happening at Hot Topic right now include:
- 30% off almost everything

What to expect
In the past, shoppers cashed in on $10 tees, $9 Funko Pop figurines and sitewide buy one, get one 50% off deals. We expect similar price cuts this year.
Key dates to know for Hot Topic’s Black Friday sale this year:
- Early shopping — starts Monday, November 23rd.
- Black Friday — Hot Topic’s biggest deals are typically released on Black Friday itself, which is November 27th this year.
- Cyber Monday — you can continue shopping through the weekend and into Monday, November 30th.
- Expected end date — its sales may trickle into December 1st, but deals will likely be gone after that.
Is the Hot Topic Black Friday sale only online?
No — shop in stores or online to score the same discounts.
Keep in mind that the in-store shopping experience will be different this year due to the pandemic, with precautions in place to slow the spread of COVID-19. And be aware that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released guidelines that deem shopping in crowded malls — where many Hot Topics are found — a high-risk activity for the spread of COVID-19.
If you decide to visit Hot Topic in person, be sure to bring face masks or other PPE.
When can I start shopping?
Last year, online sales dropped at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. We expect it to follow suit this year, with early bird deals available even before Black Friday.
For in-store shopping, call your local Hot Topic to inquire about Black Friday hours. It usually opens up on Thanksgiving, but that might be different this year because of the pandemic.
Hot Topic Black Friday deals and doorbusters
