*HOT* Walmart Black Friday News – Start your Black Friday Shopping NOW!

This is HOT off the press – you can start your Black Friday shopping NOW at Walmart.

They have just announced that they will be price matching Layaway on Black Friday.  What does this mean?  This means that you can go and get your items at Walmart now, put them on layaway, and then pick them up on Black Friday for Black Friday shopping!

This is HUGE news for Black Friday Shoppers, not only can you get the 1 hour guanrantee at Walmart this year, but you can now do your shopping today and pick up those items on Black Friday shopping!!!

Here are a few things to consider:

  • Keep in mind layaway will be closed until 9am on Friday. Layaway items in Event 3 that begins at 5am on Black Friday 11/23/12 will be the only items eligible and the adjustment must be made in our Layaway department on 11/23/12.  This means any items that are on sale all day long during the hours that layaway is open.
  • The point of this sale is to put those items that are advertised all day long on Layaway, items that will likely sell out, like the TV deals.

Here is how you do it:

  1. Find the items you want from the Walmart Black Friday Ad 2012 and go put them on Layaway anytime from Now until the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.
  2. You are NOT Allowed to price match the items right now, it will be put on Layaway at the current Walmart Price.
  3. Go to Walmart Anytime the Black Friday Price is Available (Thursday or Friday) and Price Match to the Black Friday Ad.
  4. You MUST pay in full on Friday to get the Black Friday Price- you must close out your Layaway contract or it will stay at the full purchase price
  5. You can do this with ALL OTHER stores Black Friday Ads – ALL STORES, AWESOME!!!
  6. If you are Price matching other stores Black friday Ads it must be to the EXACT same item. All dates AND times apply.
For all other Black Friday Ads and Deals check out my Black Friday 2012 Section.

Thanks Paul from I Heart the Mart for this great information!

      the item has to be picked up on layaway the hours that the sale it on. So if the item you want is only on sale 10 pm – 11pm Thanksgiving night, layaway is closed, so you will not be able to get it for the BF price.

    Will you please explain why only Event 3 items would be included if it states that these items are at that price” while supplies last”…thank you!! I am so confused and don’t want to make a mistake!

      This means any items that are on sale all day long during the hours that layaway is open. So you cannot get the iPad which is only on sale 10pm – 11pm on thanksgiving night, that item has to be purchased within those hours and layaway is closed during that time.

        But if the item does not have an end time, then you can put it in layaway.

      Walmart has confirmed on their facebook page that the event 1 and 2 sales go until they are out of stock. Certain items are guaranteed for the one hour but will still be on sale after that if there are any left. So you can still get the deal as long as it’s still on the shelf somewhere at the time you are up at the layaway desk closing out the layaway. Unlikely, but possible I guess.

    Can I buy the item early at full price and then bring it back on Black Friday to price match at the register or customer service?

    So if the Leapad 1 that is on sale for $65 – which is available at 8pm that would be considered an item that can be put on layaway correct? I don’t see an end time for the items that are available for 8pm, it only says ‘while supplies last’

    FYI….I just s/w the mngr at the Central Square Walmart about this….she confirmed that, while the policy listed is true, most of the Black Friday items are not available on the shelves right now. She specifically stated that the Leappad that is in stock now is not the same one that will be on sale for the BF price….even simple things like the DVD’s and video games are not the same ones that are on sale on BF…..from past experience as a layaway mngr at Walmart, I can tell you that the electronics that are on sale on BF are specific models made for that day only, to prevent price matching…for example, Sony will make a TV with model number 12345 for Walmart on BF, and only for that store on that day….even though what appears to be the exact same TV is on sale at Target, the Target one will be model number 12346. :( I don’t want to be the party pooper, but I would hate for everyone to put things on Layaway and think that they don’t have to go out on BF, and then find out that they will not get the BF prices. Hope everyone has a fun and safe shopping adventure on BF!!!!

      Amanda, thanks so much for your input. I do agree that this policy is a bit vague and misleading. We will see how the deals roll out on this one, but I am skeptical.

    Aside from the 1 hour guaranteed items the ad states that prices are valid from 11/22-11/25. Although if the item is not in the store then it could not be put on layaway. I guess you’d have to go to the store and see what the have and if it’s the exact same then put it on layaway. I’m gonna go look at my store today but I’m guessing any major item I want won’t be in stock right now.

    I have noticed also that in past years the toys are not the same ones on the shelf either. They also have different packaging and bar codes. I think I would be hesitant to put too much on layaway for fear that the upc’s won’t match up and I would be out of luck :(

    My mother in law said that this is not true for the Rome walmart. Where did you get this information? She works there and asked about it.

      This information was given to us by Walmart Corporate officials – I do not think they were prepared enough for this news.

      This is not true as I called the Rome Walmart and spoke to Customer Service a couple nights ago and they confirmed it … this is way too confusing :(

    So I would need to check with a sales associate if I were to go and put stuff on layaway as to which items are the same as the ones that will be available on Black Friday? Most of the stuff I want is in event 1 (Thursday 8pm-Friday 11pm) and I don’t want to have to go to Walmart on Thanksgiving. In previous years I have gone to Walmart and they would not price match for some reason or another

    What about items that are listed in other stores’ Black Friday Ad, but not Walmart’s? For example, Office Depot has an Asus tablet that matches the model currently in my local Walmart store. The Walmart price is currently $319 and Office Depot’s ad shows same model for $299 for Friday and Saturday. However, its not featured in Walmarts ad at all. Would I be able to bring that ad in today to price match for layaway to pick up anytime on Friday or Saturday?

    This is the first time I’ll have tried price matching at Walmart, let alone for a Black Friday special, but my brother really wants this tablet! :-)

      This has been confirmed by Walmart Coorporate officials – many times the employees or managers have no idea. Unfortunately this is the way that Walmart operates.

    Same question that KC asked… “Can I buy the item early at full price and then bring it back on Black Friday to price match at the register or customer service?”

      No – the item has to be either purchased that day for the price or on layaway. That is what I am understanding.

    Well there goes plan A. Now for plan B… try it anyway and hope that they are busy, tired, and annoyed that they’ll just do the price match anyway.
