It's BIG and It's BACK: Walmart Black Friday Sale

I used to love, love, love Black Friday Shopping. That's when I had 2 kids, however, and getting a baby sitting was easier. Now that I have half a dozen of the little critters, I find it difficult to get out and brave the crowds and Nebraska weather.

That's OK. In fact, Walmart has figured out a way to make getting the items I want easily, whether I choose to step out for a couple of hours, or stay home!

Here are some of the highlights of this year's Black Friday season at Walmart...

One Hour Guarantee Is Back!

Between 6 and 7 p.m. on Nov. 27 customers can purchase the gift they want and either take it home that night or receive it at a store before Christmas. The 1-Hour Guarantee is for the following items:
  • 50” Class LED HDTV for $218 ($180 savings)

The process will be much simpler than last year 
  • Customers can simply bring their 1-Hour Guarantee ticket to the checkout lane and pay for the item. 
  • Then, they visit before 12:59 p.m. ET Dec. 1 to enter the transaction code from the receipt and choose the store to pick up the item before Christmas. 
  • Provide the receipt when it’s time to pick up the item. Any corresponding Walmart Gift Cards will be given to the customer at this time. 
There will Be More Checkout Lanes

Frustrated by the long lines and lack of customer service that Black Friday has been notorious for? Walmart is offering a Checkout Promise on the weekends between Black Friday and Christmas, where they will open more checkout lanes than ever between 12 p.m. – 6 p.m. (during peak shopping hours) at Supercenters and other stores that offer general merchandise like electronics, apparel and toys. They’ll open additional lanes the day before Thanksgiving, November 26th and during the final days before Christmas, December 20th – 24th, to help customers move through stores quickly. USA, LLC
