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.
Walmart has expanded their One-Hour Guarantee this year from 3 items to 21 deeply discounted items, including:
- Vizio® 60” Class Smart LED 1080p HDTV - $688 (a $310 savings)

- Straight Talk ® Galaxy Centura™ prepaid phone - $29 (a $70.88 savings)

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!
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!
