Everything You Need to Know About Walmart’s 2019 Black Friday Deals, Plus Pre-Sales to Shop Right Now
It’s almost time for the biggest shopping event of the year
If nothing makes you happier than saving money and finding great bargains (no? just me?) then it’s time to start getting excited—because the biggest shopping event of the year is coming up fast. Black Friday 2019 is on Friday, November 29 this year—but that doesn’t mean you have to wait until then to start scoring huge savings. Last year, Walmart started launching its early Black Friday pre-sale deals on November 8, and we’re expecting (and hoping!) the mega-retailer to do the same this year.
So what does this mean for you? Since Walmart is one of the biggest retailers in the game and carries thousands of products across tons of categories—including kitchen, home, beauty, fitness, electronics, shoes, and clothes, just to name a few—you can get pretty much all of your holiday shopping done during Walmart’s Black Friday sale and pre-sale. Whether you're looking for a new TV, smart home products, or new beauty supplies, Walmart truly has something for everyone.
Not to mention, the store is known for offering huge rollbacks and price matches on everyday items year-round—combine those already-reduced prices with the Black Friday deals, and the savings add up to be bigger than ever. Walmart’s Black Friday ad historically gives a look at all the deals that’ll be offered on the big day—and while we don’t yet know when Walmart’s Black Friday ad will come out for 2019, it’s often released about two weeks before Thanksgiving.
Here’s everything you need to know about the mega-sale event at Walmart, coming up in just two short months.
What time does Walmart Black Friday start?
Last year, Walmart’s official Black Friday sale event didn’t wait until Friday. It kicked off on Thursday, November 22—Thanksgiving Day—at 6 p.m. local time, and lasted through the entirety of the following day, Friday, November 23.
This year, Thanksgiving falls on Thursday, November 28, and you can expect Walmart’s Black Friday sale to start on the evening of Turkey Day again in 2019. And if you’re wondering when Walmart’s Black Friday ends, the good news is that you’ll have well over 24 hours to score savings on everything on your shopping list, because it’ll last at least until the end of the day on Friday, November 29—and maybe even into the weekend (if we’re lucky!).
Can you shop online for Walmart Black Friday?
Yes! Not only can you find all the same items that are in-store during Walmart’s Black Friday sale, but shopping the deals online actually gives you a huge advantage, because Walmart’s online Black Friday deals drop as early as the day before Thanksgiving. Last year, the online sale kicked off on Wednesday, November 21 at 10 p.m. ET, giving shoppers almost a full 24 hours to snag the best Black Friday deals before the in-store sale launched the next day.
What’s more, we all know that Black Friday is infamous for huge crowds and long lines at in-person stores. Why not avoid all the stress and chaos, and shop all the best deals online from the comfort of your own home, instead? This way, you can still take advantage of Walmart’s sale without ever leaving your couch.
The best Walmart Black Friday deals
Walmart’s Black Friday ad for 2019 hasn’t been released yet, but we do know that you can expect price matches, rollbacks, and huge savings across a variety of categories. Last year, we saw tons of deals on kitchen and home items, beauty and personal care finds, fitness and sports equipment, and big-ticket electronics. Some of our favorites included the mega-popular Instant Pot Pressure Cooker that was nearly half off, the high-tech robot vacuum that basically cleans your home for you, and this versatile stand mixer that was going for under $200. In electronics, we took advantage of huge markdowns on Apple products at Walmart, such as the Apple Airpods on sale and iPad minis that were over $100 cheaper. And we especially loved Walmart’s great selection of beauty and oral care items that were on sale, like the cordless Waterpik Water Flosser and one of Oral B’s most popular electric toothbrushes.
