When Does Walmart Black Friday Start?

Walmart’s Black Friday deals are happening right now! The retail giant kicked off its Deals for Days promotion earlier this month to give customers plenty of time to score early savings on the items they’re shopping for this season. So technically, Walmart’s Black Friday started on November 4 this year. 

How Does Walmart’s Black Friday Deals for Days Work?

Throughout the month of November, Walmart has been hosting early Black Friday events that begin online and continue in stores. (However, most of the best savings are being offered exclusively online.) These drops feature deals on some of the most sought-after products of the season — but they’re only available at these low prices for a limited time. 

Its first Deals for Days promotion began on November 4 with now-expired discounts on popular kitchen appliances, but Walmart’s second event is still in full swing with huge deals on electronics, like TVs, tablets, and laptops. The third event will start on Wednesday, November 25 at 7 p.m. ET, offering customers massive markdowns across every department. You can expect even more online savings to drop at midnight ET and in stores at 5 a.m. ET. 

When Will Walmart Open on Black Friday?

For the first time in 30 years, Walmart announced it will be closed on Thanksgiving to give essential workers — who have been working relentlessly during the pandemic — time to spend with their families. Walmart stores will open at 5 a.m. local time on Friday, November 27, with extra measures to keep its customers and employees safe while shopping. 

How Can I Shop Walmart’s Black Friday Deals?

Customers can shop all of Walmart’s incredible Black Friday savings online with the option to get your order via contactless curbside pickup, a new service available in the majority of its stores nationwide. If you prefer to shop in person, Walmart has implemented a number of precautionary measures to ensure customers will feel safe.
