In an official release, posted during the wee hours of October 31st, Walmart stores announced they are kicking off the month of November with more than 20,000 rollbacks on popular items such as Disney's Frozen merchandise, brands like Samsung and Dell, and even grocery items. The discounting will begin both in stores and online on November 1st and ramp up on the 3rd, when they will be launching a 24-hour holiday cyber savings event.
Walmart.com will be offering deals that are typically reserved for Black Friday and Cyber Monday for a 24-hour period starting shortly after midnight on November 3rd! Just a few of the cyber-specials included in this event are:
- Sony 48" 1080p 60Hz LED LCD HDTV (KDL48R470B) - $348.00, was $448.00
- Nextbook 7.85" Tablet w/ 8GB Memory - $49.00, was $99.00
- Nintendo 2DS Handheld Video Game System - $79.00, was $129.00
- Barbie Dreamhouse - $120.00, was $148.82
- Element 40" 1080p 60Hz Direct-Lit LED HDTV (ELEFW408) - $199.00, was $298.00
- NutriNinja Pro Blender - $65.00, was $99.00
- Crayola Paint Maker - $12.00, was $18.88
Walmart has also announced that more items will be eligible for their Savings Catcher program. This program makes price matching easier for shoppers by having them scan their Walmart receipt's barcode (or enter the receipt number) into either the Savings Catcher website or the Walmart mobile app. If any items on the receipt are found for a cheaper price at a local store, the shoppers will receive a Walmart eGift card for the difference in price. Starting November 2nd, holiday turkeys and hams will be eligible for Savings Checker, allowing customers to know they've gotten the absolute best price on their Thanksgiving dinner.
For the last few years, we've seen the opening hours for Black Friday sales go from early in the morning to early in the week - is this a trend that can save the perceived threat that Black Friday will overtake family time on Thanksgiving Day? Let us know what you think of "Black November" in the comments below, and stay tuned right here for the Walmart Black Friday 2014 Adscans that surely must be coming soon!
