Zales and Zales Outlet jewelry stores hold several annual sales. Zales’ Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Black Friday, and bridal sales feature the best discounts. Of these, Zales’ Black Friday sale appears to be the best. We have details on Zales’ annual sales below, including discount amounts and exclusions.
When Does Zales Have the Best Sales?
Zales holds several sales each year, including its Valentine’s Day sale, Mother’s Day sale, and Black Friday sale. We contacted Zales’ corporate customer service department for information about these events and others. But before we get into the sale details, here are a few policies worth mentioning:
- Most sales are available at both Zales and Zales Outlet locations. Deeper discounts may be available at Zales Outlet stores.
- Zales’ standard return policy applies during sales events. You can return or exchange watches within 30 days of purchase and jewelry within 60 days of purchase. Items must be unworn and accompanied by the original certificates and packaging.
- Zales doesn’t guarantee price adjustments for purchases made before or after a sale. Price adjustment requests are handled on an individual basis, a corporate customer service representative said.
The following list details the annual sales at Zales, including typical dates, discount amounts, and exclusions.
Zales’ Valentine’s Day Sale

- Discounts: 30 to 50% off at Zales and up to 60% off at Zales Outlet
- Exclusions: Discounts are only available on select items, and you can’t combine other discounts on Valentine’s Day sale items. Valentine’s Day sale items will be marked “Valentine’s Day Special,” “Valentine’s Deal,” or “Cupid’s Picks.” For guaranteed Valentine’s Day delivery, you’ll need to order online by Feb. 12 or 13.
