Walmart Announces Black Friday Plans for 2021, Including Three Sales and Perks for Walmart+ Members

Walmart announced Monday that it will return to November’s month-long “Black Friday Deals for Days” promotion. The retailer is spreading out its Black Friday deals for the second year.

Instead of a single sale that begins on Thanksgiving, there will be three special sale events online and in stores. The opening sale starts online on November 3 at 7 p.m. ET and in-store on November 5 at 5 a.m. local time.

Walmart is allowing early access to paid members of its Walmart+ membership this year. Members may begin shopping four hours before the scheduled online shopping hours. The service costs $98 per year or $12.95 per month and includes unlimited free delivery and shipping. Free trials of the membership program do not have early access.

The second begins online on November 10 at 7 p.m. ET and stores on November 12 at 5 a.m. local time. Walmart did not disclose the dates for the third sale.

Walmart says the “events are designed for a safe, enjoyable experience” that all of the bargains are available online, and that “to help ensure safe shopping in stores, Walmart follows CDC guidance and local mandates.”

Dates of Walmart’s Black Friday sales:

Black Friday Event 1: Walmart describes Black Friday Event 1 as offering “amazing deals on toys and electronics,” including a 55-inch TCL 4K Roku TV for $228 and a Keurig K-Compact for $35. November 3 at 7 p.m. ET and November 5 at 5 a.m. local time, deals will commence online. (3 – 6 p.m. ET on November 3, Walmart+ members can shop.)

Black Friday Event 2: This sale has discounts on fashion, household products, and hardlines, among other items. Online sales begin at 7 p.m. ET on November 10 and at 5 a.m. local time on November 12. (3 – 6 p.m. ET on November 10, Walmart+ members can shop.)

Black Friday Event 3: Walmart did not disclose dates for this last sale but stated that it “will wrap up a month of savings with a third event that will bring its biggest, best savings of the season for the most exciting shopping day of the year.”

Walmart.com currently features “thousands of deals,” as well as Black Friday savings on certain items beginning Monday at 8:15 p.m. ET, while supplies last. In addition to its everyday low pricing, there will be “Rollbacks on items across the store and on Walmart.com, on top of its everyday low prices.”
