With the Black Friday plugin sales quickly approaching, it’s important to stay informed, and be prepared for the sale season!

In this article we’re going to cover how you can get the free Waves Black Friday plugin in 2021!

How To Get The Waves Free Black Friday Plugin

Every year Waves release a free plugin on Black Friday. Sometimes it’s an entirely new plugin, other times it’s one that’s already out.

Over the past 3 years we’ve seen some fantastic goodies get given away, so you don’t want to miss out on the Black Friday sales that Waves are having this year!

Here’s how to get the free plugin:

1. Sign up to Waves’ mailing list

To get the free Black Friday plugin this year, you’ll need to be signed up to Waves’ mailing list, so you can get sent a code and a free download link.

If you’re already signed up, then just make sure you’re getting Waves’ emails through to your inbox and they don’t get lost.

Keep a close eye on what they’re sending out over the period.

2. Add Waves to your contacts

Sometimes when you sign up for mailing lists, the emails will go to your spam folder, or they’ll go to the Gmail “promos” tab.

A lot of emails can get lost here, and when you’re waiting for an email about a free download or plugin, you want to be able to see the email come through and send a push notification to your device.

To add Waves as a contact in Gmail:

  • Go to Gmail
  • Open an email from Waves.
  • Tap the three dots icon at the right of the email
  • Click “Add to Contacts” and Waves will be added

For any other email providers you can do a quick Google search to find out how to add emails to your preferred senders.

3. Wait for the Black Friday email!

The last step is easy.

All you gotta do now is wait until you see and email from Waves about a free plugin. Then download the plugin and add the license to your Waves central account!

When Does Waves’ Free Black Friday Plugin Drop?

So when can you expect to get an email from Waves with your free plugin, and when do you need to sign up to their email list?

Judging by previous years and when the free plugin has dropped, you can expect to download it when Black Friday begins.

This is on November the 27th, until November 30th.

The promotion will last until Black Friday is over. Once Cyber Monday starts, you’ve missed the promotion, and you’ll either have to buy the plugin, or wait until next year’s free download.

What Was Last Year’s Free Plugin?

Like we said, the last couple years Waves has given us a free plugin on Black Friday, every year. And, so you can get an idea of what to expect, we’ve left the last 3 year’s free plugins below.

There have been some absolutely awesome free plugins, and even new additions to the Waves line-up.

Here is the list of the last 3 years of free plugins:

  1. CLA Echosphere (2020)
