What are Walmart's Black Friday 2020 store hours?

While Walmart's Black Friday store hours haven't yet been revealed, the retailer announced in July that it would be closed on Thanksgiving. But you can thank fellow retailing juggernaut Amazon and its Prime Day event for spurring competitors to get off their online duffs and kick off the holiday shopping season earlier than ever.

Walmart has announced "Black Friday Deals for Days," moving from a single-day sale to three events in the month of November. The sales will launch online and continue in stores.

What are Walmart's Black Friday 2020 deals?

Beginning Nov. 4 online, Walmart will host what it's calling Event 1 of the monthlong Black Friday sale. Deals announced so far include:

  • A 42-inch UHD Roku TV for $88.

  • Hotel Style bath towels for $5.

  • Magic Bullet blender for $15 (available in stores starting Nov. 7).

  • $20 off tires (available Nov. 7-13).

How can you save money at Walmart?

While searching monthlong Black Friday deals at Walmart, one thing you might save money on: shipping. Walmart is offering free shipping on orders over $35, as well as free next-day delivery or in-store pickup on some items. Look for the "free delivery" or "free pickup today" banners on online product offerings.

The caveat about shopping Walmart online: Watch out for marketplace vendors. Like Amazon, third-party sellers can have different standards for fulfillment. Shipping can be much slower.

Walmart members get discounts and free unlimited delivery on orders of $35 or more. Walmart+ costs $98 per year or $12.95 per month. Free delivery can include groceries, with some deliveries made same-day. And Walmart+ members save 5 cents per gallon on fuel.

What were Walmart's Black Friday 2019 deals?

If you're looking for a clue as to what kind of deals Walmart will have this year, consider some of the savings the Big Yellow Asterisk (the company says its logo is a spark, though it also looks a little like the sun) offered last year:

  • Philips 65-inch-class 4K Android Smart TV for $278.

  • Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS) 38mm for $129 (was $199).

  • Select video games for $15 each.

  • Instant Pot 6-Qt. Duo for $49 (was $79).

The Instant Pot craze is apparently not over yet. Walmart has already brought back the $49 deal on the multipurpose cooker for its pre-Black Friday 2020 sale, but a Philips 65-inch 4K TV is up to $448 this year.

Shop often, shop smart.
