What we know about Walmart's multi-week Black Friday event

Technology 18-10-2021 Mashable 40

Here are the best early Black Friday deals to shop at Walmart as of Oct. 18:

In 2020, all rules surrounding Black Friday went out the window. Because of the pandemic, Amazon's Prime Day got pushed back to October, which had a domino effect, essentially kicking off Black Friday in October, too.

Officially, Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving (that's Nov. 26 in 2021). But in 2020, Walmart treated the entire month of November as Black Friday, running three staggered sales events leading up to real Black Friday.

The lower-stakes, higher-chance-of-planning-ahead event went so well that Walmart is bringing it back in 2021. On Oct. 18, Walmart confirmed that Deals for Days is happening again — and even dropped ads for two of the three sale dates. The savings, which include 4K TVs, laptops, AirPods, toys, and more, start on Nov. 3.

Like last year, Walmart will not open its doors at brick at mortar store locations on Thanksgiving. Walmart stores will be open on Black Friday, but why deal with lines and crowded aisles when you can score the same deals from your couch?

Shopping early is a good idea anyway — we're still seeing pandemic-related supply chain shortages and shipping delays. If your version of planning ahead for the holidays involves grabbing a few gifts before Black Friday, here's what you can save on at Walmart ahead of Black Friday:
