If the recent drop in temperatures isn’t making shoppers excited for the holidays, Walmart’s early Black Friday event (Deals for Days) surely will. This year, Walmart Deals for Days is rolling out a little earlier, offering consumers a chance to snag Black Friday deals nearly a month ahead of the blockbuster sales holiday. Similar to last year, Walmart is rolling back the prices on most-wanted items like big-screen smart TVs, chromebooks and laptops, robovacs and pet vacuums, and toys

If you want to avoid the Black Friday 2021 rush, long lines, and sold out products, now’s your time to grab the best early Black Friday deals at Walmart. Deals for Days begins online Wednesday, November 3 at 6 p.m. CT, followed by in-store deals on Friday, November 5 at 5 p.m. local time. What’s that mean? If you miss your wishlist items during the online sale, you can visit your local Walmart store for a second chance. Keep scrolling for pro tips and a look at the hottest items on sale!

Tips to get Walmart Black Friday deals in your shopping cart

The key to nabbing your must-have early Black Friday deals at is to be ready as soon as the clock strikes 6 p.m. CT on November 3 and 10.

Here’s a hacky recipe for bagging your Walmart Black Friday sale items before they’re sold out:

1. Create your account ahead of time with your up-to-date payment, billing, and shipping information.

2. Have a browser tab open with each product you want to purchase.

If you can add the items to your cart, go ahead and do so ahead of the sale start time.

3. Set an alarm on your phone to 5:30 p.m. CT.

This ensures you’re ready to go when the sale is live. 

4. As soon as 6 p.m. arrives, refresh your current window, and quickly select “Add to cart”.

You’ll need to do this with each window. 

5. Quickly checkout while your items are still on hold in your cart. 

This time is likely to be limited during Walmart’s Black Friday sales. 

The very best tip for getting the items on your Walmart shopping list before they're sold out is to sign up for a Walmart+ membership. You'll get early access to their best deals — four hours early!
