Early Black Friday Deals are Here @ Walmart Canada

Black Friday Deals @ Walmart

Can't wait until Black Friday? It looks like Walmart Canada is in the same boat, because they kicked things off a little early! Their Early Black Friday Deals are live online right now, and they're already blowing my mind.

These aren't just early access deals or sneak peeks. These are the kinds of prices you'd see on Black Friday itself, but you get to shop 'em a week early. And it gets even better, because Walmart has promised they'll release even more of these sales next week – so stay tuned for the best ones!

I really can't believe some of the Early Black Friday Deals they already have live. I've been eyeing a set of adjustable weights for a while now, and the Bowflex SelectTech 552 Dumbbells are now just $249 from $449!

This year's Black Friday deals aren't quite live yet at Walmart Canada, but there are a few things we can tell you before the big day gets here. Officially, Black Friday 2018 falls on Nov. 23 – and it looks like that is when Walmart will launch all their major sales. So with that in mind, here's what to expect on Black Friday.

First, it looks like Walmart Canada will follow a pretty similar sale structure to what we've seen in previous years. On Black Friday itself, they'll launch deals on items across almost every single department in the store. You won't be able to shop these until Black Friday (and Walmart hasn't announced an official sale start time), but you CAN check a few deals out in advance.

Just like last year, Walmart will release sneak peeks of their Black Friday event in their flyer. If you check it out before Nov. 23, you'll be able to view select items included in the sale (and their low prices), add them to your cart and check out early on Black Friday BEFORE everything sells out completely. So if you have a specific Christmas gift you're looking for, this is one way to make sure you get what you need.

Walmart has already name-dropped a few brands that will be included in the sale, like Apple, Samsung, LEGO, Vizio and more. Predictably, it sounds like some of the best and most popular deals will be on electronics, so I'd check that section of the flyer out first (and add what you need in your shopping cart).

Walmart Black Friday 2018

Walmart's three-day Black Friday event is, well, let's just say it: it's epic and they're sure to be offering some killer deals. It starts at midnight EST on the 23rd of November. In others words, you can start shopping at 12:01 AM on Black Friday and keep on shopping all weekend long.

Walmart runs a whole gambit of promotions for Black Friday, they include: Early Access, Pre-Black Friday, Online Specials, Black Friday and what they call their "Christmas Ad Match" program. The Early Access program is basically an e-newsletter that sends notifications of deals directly to your inbox; if you're not into cluttering up your inbox, you can always check back here for updates on Walmart and all your other favourite retailers. The other program worth knowing about is Walmart's Ad Match program, which is basically the same one they run throughout the Christmas season, but the idea is that if you buy something on Walmart.ca, and then find a lower price in-store at another retailer, you just email christmasadmatch@walmart.com and Walmart will send you the difference on a gift card.

Walmart Black Friday Deal Forecast

Walmart has offered some pretty great deals in the past, such as when they dropped the price of 16G iPad Mini 2s to $298 and then giving away $20 Walmart gift cards with each one; or when they offered 32" HD Smart LED TVs for $158; XBox One Bundles for $349; or when they marked Samsung tablets down to $108. Apart from electronics (seriously, 50" LED TVs were down to $378 and Sony surround-sound was $168, wireless beats headphones for $149, and HDMI cables for $5), we also saw DVD blow-outs for as low as $3.97 each, kids PJ sets for less than $5, $20 for Thomas & Friends train sets, pogo sticks and scooters for $15 and board games blow outs with prices ranging between $5 and $10. This year, we are going to be expecting more of the same -- but we will especially be keeping our eyes out for deep discounts on toys and electronics since that's where Walmart really shines on Black Friday.

We will be mining through all the best deals and posting them right here, so check back for updates. While you're waiting for Black Friday, current deals are available right now on the Walmart Coupons page.
