The calendar says Black Friday begins November 27 – the day after Thanksgiving – but at Walmart, Black Friday begins now. Rather than having a single day of savings, the retail giant split offers across three events in November. Walmart calls its redesigned sales Black Friday Deals for Days. You don’t even have to go to a Walmart store – new offers will appear regularly throughout the month.

Here is the breakdown:

  • Black Friday Event 1 started online at on November 4 at 7 p.m. ET, offering deals on toys, electronics and home products. Further offers will be available online November 7 at 12 p.m. ET and in stores at 5 a.m. local time. Walmart said it will also host its annual tire event in stores and online from November 7 to 13.
  • Event 2 will begin online Nov. 11 at 7 p.m. ET and feature deals on electronics like TVs, computers and tablets, Walmart said. Event 2 will also include savings on movies, music, clothing, home and more. Additional offers will be available online November 14 at 12 p.m. ET and in-store at 5 a.m. local time. Walmart said it will also host “its biggest wireless phone event ever,” with deals on Apple iPhones and Samsung phones, online and in stores on November 14.
  • Event 3 kicks off online Nov 25 at 7 p.m. ET, with additional offers online Nov 27 (true Black Friday) at 12 p.m. ET and in-store at 5 a.m. local time. Walmart said its third savings event will feature even more deals on electronics, toys, clothing and home, as well as seasonal decor.

Like the entire holiday season, Black Friday 2020 is shaping up to be a different shopping experience in the middle of Coronavirus pandemic. A number of retailers are closing their physical stores at Thanksgiving this year, ending a long tradition of holiday shopping of kicking off Black Friday sales on Thursday, before the turkey even got cold.

At in-store events, Walmart said it was counting customers in stores to reduce congestion and help social distancing. Store employees will also give customers disinfected shopping carts and remind them to put them on face masks.

Here’s the best part: We don’t just know the dates and general plans – Walmart has drawn the curtain to reveal some of the best deals. We’ve rounded up the best of what’s been announced so far and listed it here. But don’t forget to come back, as we’ll be adding new offers as we find them. You might still have your Halloween decorations, but let the Black Friday shopping begin!
