As has become a tradition over the past few years Walmart is starting its Black Friday deals ahead of Black Friday.
The retailer is offering “Black Friday” deals beginning November 8, and will then begin the next phase of the annual holiday selling season tradition on Wednesday, November 21. The initial sales start on Walmart.com and will include a “Light-Up Black Friday” party for customers on November 22 with enhanced offers designed to simplify shopping in stores.
Among the housewares items on sales during Walmart’s Black Friday promotion includes the Shark Ion RV700 Vacuum: $179 (Save $90); Instant Pot 8-Quart Pressure Cooker: $59 (Save $40); Tasty 30-Pc. Cookware Set: $99 (Special Buy – Includes Google Home Mini).
The Light-Up Black Friday party includes a sampling party where Walmart will be giving away four million cups of complimentary coffee courtesy of Keurig and nearly two million free Christmas cookies from the Walmart bakery.
Also, Walmart will be adding a store map feature to the Walmart app, which will transition to a Black Friday version. Departments including home, toys, electronics and apparel will be color coded.
