Black Friday Sales at Walmart for 2012

There are 3 different events this year at Walmart for Black Friday;  in-store specials at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day, followed by its big electronics event at 10 p.m. and a weekend full of savings starting at 5 a.m. on Friday, November 23.   I’ll outline each event, along with my favorite picks that I hope to purchase this holiday season.  Maybe my basket full of savings from the past will inspire you to organize, map out, and shop!

Before I get to each event, I want to remind you of the one hour guarantee Walmart is offering this year and 3 specific items.  Customers who are inside the store and in the queue line between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. local time on November 22 can purchase the following electronics at special low prices:

    Thanks for the heads up. Nothing is in the budget this year for Christmas. So being super frugal. Did get the in-laws a little something, but nothing as expensive as last year, probably $50 total in price. I think that’s the only person we will be buying for this year. Our medical insurance is going up, so something has to give.

    How did you push that cart? I hope you had help, lots of it based on the cart. Great chart. I plan on using all the gift cards that I have won to pay for black friday sales, so hopefully nothing will come out of pocket and plan on getting my tv from walmart since best buy will probably sell out of the 10 that they will have in stock. But will def. take advantage of black friday, couldn’t afford not to especially with the killer deals that are offered.
