Thanksgiving 2021: Closed

Black Friday 2021: Friday November 26th (the day after Thanksgiving) with Black Friday savings available throughout the entire November-December holiday season.

Walmart Black Friday Sale

Walmart does Black Friday up big. The international discount retailer prides itself on offering customers the lowest prices available, and on major shopping holidays, it’s Walmart’s time to shine.

Regular Walmart customers (and once a year Walmart customers) wait all year for Walmart’s Black Friday deals because they offer serious savings you can’t get anywhere else, or at any other time. Not to mention the fact that Walmart sells pretty much everything. If you want to get the most bang for your Holiday buck, start planning your Walmart Black Friday shopping now.

What Time Does Walmart Black Friday Sale Start?

Similar to last year, we anticipate Walmart will kick off its Black Friday deals online at 7P EST on a Wednesday, although for 2021 that date and time has yet to be announced. (Bookmark this page and check back!)

For 2020, Walmart had 3 Black Friday events (Nov 4, Nov 11th, and Nov 25th) with each kicking off online on a Wednesday at 7P ET. With each sales event, there were also more online deals that launched online at 12AM ET and in-store at 5AM local time.

Expect many Black Friday deals this year to be launched online at midnight and in-stores at 5AM local time.

Black Friday itself is still technically the Friday after Thanksgiving, and Walmart will be open on that date with Black Friday deals.

Whether or not Walmart has 3 separate Black Friday events or not, we do know that Walmart will be offering Black Friday deals throughout the length of the holiday season.

What Are the Black Friday Sale Dates at Walmart?

Walmart will be offering Black Friday deals and savings throughout the entirety of the Holiday season: November and December, and it’s been hinted that they may start earlier in the fall.

While the days following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, are still iconic shopping days, Black Friday is no longer contained within a single day or even within an extended weekend. Last year, Walmart had 3 separate Black Friday events (on Nov 4th, 11th, and 25th).

The Walmart Black Friday ad always makes it very clear what deals will be available and when. When Walmart’s Black Friday ads for 2021 are available, you’ll find links on our site so you can plan out your season of shopping. Make sure to bookmark this page!
