How to save money at Walmart this Black Friday
Black Friday is almost here, so it’s time to get your shopping lists ready. Black Friday 2020 will be different than previous years due to the COVID-19 crisis, but there will still be plenty of deals to be had.
As one of the world’s largest retailers, Walmart always has some of the most incredible Black Friday deals around. If this is a store you plan to shop during Black Friday 2020, be sure to stick with Savings.com. You’ll see the store’s ad scans as soon as they’re available so you can plan your shopping trip. You’ll also find money-saving Walmart coupons that you can use throughout the year.
To keep shoppers safe in this COVID-19 climate, Walmart has made lots of changes in its stores.
Most stores require that you wear face masks. If you don’t have one, select stores may be able to provide a disposable face covering at no charge.
Some Walmart stores have closed off one entrance, which means guests must enter and exit from one side of the store. Take note of which door(s) are open at your store so you can appropriately plan parking.
While many Walmart stores were sanitizing shopping carts for customers, some stores have stopped this practice. However, most have the necessary materials available so shoppers can clean their own carts. Just in case, consider bringing your own sanitizing wipes.
To help customers exercise proper social distancing, most Walmart stores have placed signs and stickers throughout the stores. Many aisles are one-way only to ease congestion.
To prevent congestion in its stores, Walmart will be limiting the number of shoppers who can enter at one time. The store will have markers in place outside the store and ask that you line up in a single-file line until you are allowed to enter.
Walmart hasn’t released its entire Black Friday ad yet, but it has offered a sneak peek as to how things will run this year.
To give you more opportunities to score deals, Walmart will be hosting three separate shopping events throughout the month of November.
The first starts online on November 4th. More deals will be released in-store and online on November 7th.
The second event starts online on November 11th. New deals will come in-store and online on November 14th.
The third and final event starts online on November 25th. The last deals will appear in-store and online on November 27th.
For Black Friday 2020 shopping events, Walmart stores will open at 5:00 a.m. local time. The deals will be available as soon as you walk in the door.
Online shoppers can start adding deals to their cart at 7:00 p.m. ET for the first wave of each shopping event and at 12:00 a.m. ET for the second release.
In all, shoppers will have six opportunities to shop for great Black Friday deals at Walmart this year.
Walmart hasn’t revealed all of its Black Friday deals, but it has offered a taste.
On November 4th, shoppers can snag 42-inch Roku-enabled TVs for just $88. You can also pick up premium bath towels for $5.

Not up for heading to the store to shop during Walmart’s Black Friday events? You’ve got options.
While checking out at Walmart.com, you’ll notice that the store has rolled out a new contactless pick-up option. Order all your Black Friday goodies online and then head to your local store to have them dropped into your trunk. This service is available at most stores, so look for it as you complete your purchase.
Don’t want to leave the house at all? While Walmart doesn’t typically offer any free shipping promotions for Black Friday, you’ll rarely pay shipping costs so long as your order total is $35 or more. Many items qualify for free two-day shipping, but those that don’t are most likely eligible for free standard shipping.
Another thing to keep in mind while Black Friday shopping is what you’ll do if something turns out to be not quite what you wanted.
Walmart has a generous 90-day return policy. If you’re not happy with something you’ve purchased, you can make a return online or in-store.
The best way to avoid crowds when you need to make a return is to send your unwanted items back by mail. Walmart will provide a free shipping label, so this service comes at no cost to you. In some circumstances, Walmart can also arrange to have your unwanted items picked up from your home.
Note that you can only return Walmart.com purchases by mail. Those items you’ve purchased at a local store must be returned to a Walmart location.
