Walmart to offer some Black Friday deals a week early

Walmart will offer a selection of its Black Friday deals on Friday, Nov. 22, a week before the hallowed shopping day.

“Black Friday is our Super Bowl and we plan to win,” Duncan Mac Naughton, chief merchandising and marketing officer of Walmart U.S., said in a press release.

The deals, which are designed to match some of the best offers at Toys "R" Us, Best Buy and Target, will begin at 8 a.m. Friday, Nov. 22.

Here are some of the discounts:

  • LeapPad 2 – WAS: $79, NEW PRICE: $39.99
  • Little Tikes Cozy Coupe – WAS: $49.87, NEW PRICE: $34.99 
  • Nerf Rebelle Crossbow – WAS: $19.88, NEW PRICE: $11.99
  • Monopoly Board Game – WAS: $7.77, NEW PRICE: $5
  • Hot Wheels Single Car – WAS: .97 cents, NEW PRICE: .60 cents 

Electronics:

  • Select PS4 and Xbox One Video Games such as Call of Duty: Ghosts, NBA 2K14 and Battlefield 4 – WAS: $59.96, NEW PRICE: $49

The announcement also notes that it is extending its Christmas Ad Match policy to Walmart.com customers. Customers who purchase an item on Walmart.com, and find a lower price in a local brick and mortar competitor, can email christmasadmatch@walmart.com and receive the difference on a gift card.

The same policy is in place for customers at Walmart stores for items purchased Nov. 1 through Dec. 24, excluding Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday.

Walmart's everyday ad match policy will be in effect on Thanksgiving and Black Friday.

"If a customer spots a lower price on an advertised item, and comes into a Walmart store during the same day and time that the competitor’s ad is valid, Walmart will match the price at the register," the press release says.
