Walmart’s annual Deals for Days event is officially here. The savings event — which runs alongside early Black Friday sales from other retail giants like Amazon, Target and Best Buy — is offering notable deals on everything from tech and kitchen gadgets to home decor and clothing. Walmart’s Black Friday sale is spread across three weeklong savings events: The retailer is currently on its third and final week of deals, and will continue to unveil more savings through Cyber Monday. Walmart also gives early access benefits for its Walmart+ members, who will be able to shop online deals seven hours before the sales events start at the beginning of each week (that’s a jump from the 4-hour period members had last year).
To help you make the most of Walmart’s Deals for Days event this year, we will continuously compile standout deals to consider based on Select reader interest and our previous coverage. We also break down what to expect throughout the savings event and how to take advantage of the best deals.

When is Black Friday 2022?
Black Friday takes place every year the day after Thanksgiving. Black Friday 2022 falls on Nov. 25. But experts told us Black Friday and Cyber Monday are no longer just 24-hour events. They’re morphed into weeks of doorbuster deals, and some early sales start in October or November. Throughout the next few days, we’ll continue updating you about new savings opportunities, as well as tips about what to buy during the event and what you may want to wait on purchasing.
What to expect during Walmart’s Deals for Days 2022
As with the past two years, Walmart’s Black Friday savings event — known as Deals for Days — hosts deals throughout the majority of November. The three events that form part of the retailer’s biggest sale of the year kick off every Monday on the retailer’s website and in-store, with new deals introduced at the start of the week.
- The first event kicked off on Monday, Nov. 7at 7 p.m. EDT (12 p.m. EDT for Walmart+ members) and continued in Walmart stores on Nov. 9.
- The second week’s deals were introduced Nov. 14 at 7 p.m. EDT and continued in stores on Nov. 16.
- The final week for Black Friday deals started on Nov. 21 at 7 p.m. EDT and in-store sales will be offered on Nov. 25, which is the official date for Black Friday this year. (Keep in mind that Walmart stores will not be open for in-person shopping on Thanksgiving Day this year.)
- Walmart will also host deals on Cyber Monday (Nov. 28) to close out its Deals for Days event.
Walmart says it’s hosting deals across electronics, home, toys, apparel and more, and shoppers can expect strong discounts on popular brands like Apple, Dyson and LEGO. According to the retailer, it has even prepared for months to ensure a well-stocked inventory ahead of its Black Friday deals. In fact, Walmart has also attempted to clear out excess inventory throughout the year after notably opting out of hosting a competing Prime Day sale in July.
To maximize savings during Walmart’s Black Friday sale, you can also consider the retailer’s two co-branded credit cards in partnership with Capital One, both of which offer up to 5% back on online purchases, up to 2% back on in-store purchases and come with no annual fee. (To get a better sense of the benefits of each card and which one is right for you, we go into detail about the similarities and differences between Walmart’s credit cards.)
Does Walmart offer price matching for Black Friday?
No, Walmart’s price match policy doesn’t extend to orders that include pre-Black Friday, Black Friday or Cyber Monday pricing in-stores or online. (Usually, the retailer may price match an item when an identical, in-stock product is found at a lower price at a select online competing retailer.) However, the retailer is offering a generous holiday return policy, though: Eligible purchases made on or after Oct. 1 can be returned through Jan. 31, 2023.
What is Walmart+?
Similar to last year, Walmart is heavily focusing its deals offerings for Walmart+ members this year — which is similar to other subscription services like Amazon Prime — by providing even earlier access to online deals for its members. If you’re looking to try out the service ahead of the Deals for Days event, Walmart+ offers a free 30-day trial to new members that lets you score the early access perks.
The membership can also provide a variety of shopping benefits both in-store and online, including free unlimited deliveries after spending at least $35 per order, special prices on gas and a Paramount+ Essential Plan subscription at no additional cost. For both Walmart+ members and non-members, the retailer will provide access to curbside pickup, express delivery within two hours and free next-day or two-day delivery on online orders during the Deals for Days event.
