The pandemic has changed how consumers shop. As a result, Walmart Black Friday deals will be completely different in 2020. In fact, the retail giant is promising an all-new Walmart Black Friday experience.
The biggest change in this year's Walmart Black Friday experience is the fact that Walmart brick-and-mortar stores will be closed on Thanksgiving Day. (The closures also affect Sam's Club stores). That's right; no more lining up outside stores immediately after finishing your turkey dinner.
This is a massive change because Walmart has traditionally kicked off its Black Friday season on Thanksgiving Day with in-store Black Friday deals that have started at 6pm on Thanksgiving Day.
This year, however, Walmart will forgo the in-store shopping for a series of Black Friday sales it's calling Black Friday Deals for Days. A new wave of Walmart Black Friday deals will launch every Wednesday through the entire month of November. (Excluding November 18 only).
We also suspect that Walmart Plus customers will see exclusive savings or get first dibs on Walmart's Black Friday deals. The service, which costs $98/year, is Walmart's answer to the $119/year Amazon Prime.
In the meantime, here are some of our predictions and best early deals you can get now.
