Customers across South Africa are eager to learn more about Game Black Friday 2020 plans – understandably so.

The retailer announced earlier this week that it will run Black Friday deals throughout the month of November 2020, not just on 27 November.

This is to ensure adherence to current social distancing protocols. In a statement on Thursday, Game also said it will not open its stores at midnight during this period like in previous years.

“As a responsible retailer, we do not want to encourage our shoppers to flock to stores at midnight,” Game’s vice president Andrew Stein said.

Game’s operating hours during the Black Friday month are as follows:

  • Monday to Friday: 09h00 to 18h00.
  • Saturday: 09h00 to 17h00.
  • Sunday and Public Holidays: 09h00 to 16h00.

Game Black Friday 2020 weekly deals

Game will run weekly Black Friday 2020 deals starting from 2 November until 29 November, 2020. It will launch its first set of deals at midnight on 1 November.

Stein explained, “Having the deals run weekly means more South Africans will be able to access our unbeatable deals in a way that is both safe and convenient.

“However, it is important that consumers are aware that these deals will only run for the week in which they are announced – and they are never to be repeated. When these deals are gone, they’re gone.”


Game will expand its partnership with Uber Eats beyond delivering home essentials. It will now deliver small electronics and home office items as well.

Black Friday orders will have a 10 to 14-day delivery period and a maximum delivery fee of R90 per order.

However, large items added to an order including fridges and chest freezers will have a R70 surcharge per item, per order.

Online and in-store

Black Friday at Game will have both online and in-store specials. Stein urged customers to subscribe to Game’s newsletter to receive notifications as soon as Game specials go live.

The retailer will reintroduce its “1 Cent Surprise” which proved popular at last year’s Black Friday.

Game Black Friday 2020 will also have Cyber Monday deals on Monday 30 November. Customers should however be aware that Cyber Monday deals will run exclusively online.
