Walmart Black Friday Ad 2014 #BlackFriday

by Tara Kuczykowski on November 12, 2014 · 0 comments

If you haven't heard the news, Walmart is taking a new approach to Black Friday this year, extending the event five full days. Beginning with an online only event Thursday morning (Thanksgiving Day) and continuing with both online and in-store deals through Monday evening, you'll be able to get more deals than ever!

Plus, in addition to bringing back the hugely popular 1-Hour Guarantee, Walmart introduced its first-ever interactive circular and also released store-specific plans to help manage crowds and make the shopping experience easier.

1-Hour Guarantee

As I mentioned, the 1-Hour Guarantee will be in effect again this year for 9 hot items on Thanksgiving Day. Walmart guarantees that customers who are inside the store and in the queue line between 6pm and 7pm local time on Thursday, November 27th will be able to purchase any of the following gifts they want and either take it home that night or receive it at a store before Christmas:

  • 50" Class LED HDTV for $218 ($180 savings)
  • Vizio 65" Class Smart LED HDTV for $648 ($350 savings)
  • Apple iPad Mini 16GB with Wi-Fi for $199 with a $30 Walmart Gift Card ($70 value)
  • Xbox One Halo "The Master Chief Collection" Bundle for $329 with a $30 Walmart Gift Card
  • RCA 7" Google Play Wi-Fi Tablet for $29 (special buy)
  • Samsung Galaxy Ace Style on Straight Talk Wireless for $29 ($100 savings)
  • LG Blu-ray Disc Player for $35 (special buy)
  • Beats by Dr. Dre Wireless Headphones for $149 ($130 savings)
  • HP Intel Celeron Touch Laptop for $249 (special buy)

If your particular store runs out of physical product during the one-hour time period, you will be issued a 1-Hour Guarantee ticket, which you will take to a checkout lane to pay for the item. You'll then need to visit Walmart.com before 12:59 p.m. ET Dec. 1 to enter the transaction code from the receipt and choose the store you'd like to pick up the item from before Christmas. Provide the receipt when it's time to pick up your item, and any corresponding Walmart Gift Cards will be given to you at this time.

New Black Friday -- Five Days of Deals

The New Black Friday at Walmart will feature three limited time only, while supplies last events, along with numerous additional online only and more lengthy in-store promotions. Here's the highlights of what you need to know, but be sure to check out the interactive Walmart Black Friday ad for full details.

Thanksgiving Day morning (online) -- get an early start on your Black Friday shopping with some of the same deals that will be available in stores that evening. In addition, there will be hundreds of online-only specials with FREE shipping straight to your home!

Thanksgiving Day 6pm local time (in stores) -- in addition to the 1-Hour Guarantee items, you'll find big savings on gifts for the entire family such as toys, pajamas, video games, movies, sheets and more!

Thanksgiving Day 8pm local time (in stores) -- this is the big electronics event, filled with brand-name electronics at amazing low prices!

Black Friday 6am-noon local time (in stores) -- score 30% off ALL music CDs and Monster High toys, as well as select Samsung TVs and home audio products, Fisher-Price toys, Christmas trees, Christmas lights and Beauty and Personal Care gift sets!

Black Friday 6am local time through Sunday, Nov. 30 (in stores) -- save on tires, wireless contracts and phones, diamond jewelry, plus more deals from across the store, including the Ninja Kitchen System Compact ($79; includes a $30 Walmart Gift Card) and Luxury Microfiber Sheet Sets ($19.97)!

Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 29-30 (online) -- hundreds of online specials for the two days leading in to Cyber Monday!

Cyber Monday (online) -- amazing prices on everything from electronics to home goods! More details to come...

Overall Improved Shopping Experience

Finally, Walmart aims to improve the overall customer shopping experience this year to make this Black Friday the best ever!

  • Interactive Circular -- access it for product reviews, buyer’s guides, how-to tutorials and other helpful tips.
  • Wristbands -- these will be passed out for in-demand products like the Beats Pill, Nabi 2 Tablet and iPad Air so that you don't have to stand in line for a product that isn’t available.
  • Store Maps -- these are key to a smooth shopping experience! Check the store maps for the location of the 1-Hour Guarantee items, wristband items, and other hot products like sheets, DVDs and kid's clothing. You can view them online starting November 18th, and copies will also be available in your local store.
  • Crowd Management and Safety Plans -- each location will have a store-specific plan in place to cover any unforeseen events.

Saving Catcher Expansion + Search My Store

But the savings don't stop there -- don't miss these great additions to Savings Catcher:

  • Turkey and Ham Deals -- Yes, that's right... Walmart will be price matching all of your local turkey and ham deals via Savings Catcher this year! Unfortunately this doesn't apply to competitors' offers for turkey or ham that require a minimum dollar purchase to receive the featured price or that limit the number available per customer, but all other offers are fair game.
  • Search My Store -- With the new Search My Store addition to the Walmart app, customers can search for nearly any item carried in a Walmart store and see the item's availability at that store, its aisle location, ratings and reviews. How convenient is that? It's available right now for Android devices, and it will expand to iPhones by mid-November.

New Tools & Resources

And last, but certainly not least, Walmart is also offering a variety of new tools and resources to help customers shop the season:

  • Wish List: Starting Nov. 7, children and parents can build a Toy Wish List for Santa by adding their favorite toys directly from Walmart’s digital Toy Book. Wish lists can be shared on Facebook and in email with friends and family.
  • Holiday Hub: New this year, Walmart is sharing how-to videos, product demos, seasonal recipes and other tips across multiple platforms where customers seek holiday inspiration, including Pinterest, YouTube and Walmart.com.
  • Layaway: Customers taking advantage of Walmart’s holiday layaway with no opening fee can stretch dollars further by paying at their own pace through Dec. 15.
  • Ad Match: Walmart’s great prices are backed by its Ad Match Guarantee. Stores will match the price of any local competitor’s printed ad for an identical product.

Walmart put together this awesome infographic, which includes highlights of all of these holiday offerings. Print it out or pin it on Pinterest to stay on top of the savings!

by Tara Kuczykowski on November 21, 2013 · 1 comment

Can you believe that Black Friday is only a week away? Yeah, me either. My hubby and I are heading out for a much needed mini vacation, so I won't be hitting the stores on Friday this year, but I do want to point out a few details for those of you planning to shop at Walmart.

One-Hour Guarantee

Walmart has expanded their One-Hour Guarantee this year from 3 items to 21 deeply discounted items, including:

  • Straight Talk ® Galaxy Centura™ prepaid phone - $29 (a $70.88 savings)
  • RCA 7” Dual Core Tablet - $49 (special buy)

These are awesome savings, but the best part is Walmart guarantees that customers who are inside the store and in the queue line between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. or 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. local time on Thursday, November 28th!

If any of these items happen to sell out during the designated timeframe, customers can purchase a Guarantee Card for the item. The product will then be shipped to the store where it was purchased for the customer to pick up before Christmas. There is a limit of one Guarantee Card per person, per item.

Three Sales Events
To help cut back on the mad rush, Walmart is once again breaking their sales offerings down into three events. The in-store specials will kick off at 6 p.m. local time on Thanksgiving Day, followed by the electronics sale starting at 8 p.m. local time and capped off with a weekend full of savings starting at 8 a.m. on Friday, November 23.

Plan your shopping trip prior to heading out with the helpful Black Friday hub on Walmart.com. You can also view an online map of your local Walmart store prior to the sales so you know exactly where to head for your items!

Manager's Specials

New this year are Manager's Specials. Walmart is empowering its store managers to drop the prices on other great items at their discretion. You can find additional details on your local Walmart Facebook page by visiting: www.facebook.com/walmart.

Don't forget the online deals. Starting Thanksgiving Day, Walmart will be running a host of special online deals as well, so be sure to check those out!

Walmart Black Friday Ad 2012 #BlackFriday

by Tara Kuczykowski on November 20, 2012 · 3 comments


Can you believe that Black Friday is only four days away? Yeah, me either. While I won't be hitting the stores on Friday this year, I do want to point out a few details for those of you planning to shop at Walmart.

One-Hour Guarantee

Walmart is offering the following three electronics at deep discounts:

  • Apple iPad®2 16GB with Wi-Fi – $399 plus get a $75 Walmart Gift Card
  • Emerson® 32” 720p LCD TV – $148
  • LG® Blu-ray™ Player – $38

But the best part is Walmart guarantees that customers who are inside the store and in the queue line between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. local time on November 22!

If any of these items happen to sell out before 11 p.m. local time, Walmart will offer a Guarantee Card for the item which must be paid for by midnight and registered online. The product will then be shipped to the store where it was purchased for the customer to pick up before Christmas.

Three Sales Events
To help cut back on the mad rush, Walmart is breaking their sales offerings down into three events. The in-store specials will kick off at 8 p.m. local time on Thanksgiving Day, followed by the electronics sale starting at 10 p.m. local time and capped off with a weekend full of savings starting at 5 a.m. on Friday, November 23.

Plan your savings strategy by checking out the full Walmart Black Friday ad here and the Walmart Black Friday ad scans here. You can also view an online map of your local Walmart store prior to the sales so you know exactly where to head for your items!

A few additional tips:

  • Ad Match will be in effect. This means you will be able to match the price of any local competitor’s printed ad for an identical product right at the cash register.
  • Layaway items picked up during the sale can be Ad Matched. I have a feeling the layaway lines are going to be a nightmare, but if you want to give it a shot, any layaway order that is closed out during sale hours will receive the Walmart Black Friday price and/or can be Ad Matched to a local competitor.
  • Don't forget the online deals. Starting Thanksgiving Day, Walmart will be running a host of special online deals as well, so be sure to check those out!
