I know, I know, we have not even hit Halloween yet. But Walmart made a BIG Black Friday announcement. And the news really got me in the holiday spirit.

As an avid shopper and avid saver, I love Black Friday. It is the kick-off to the holiday season. I love the hustle and bustle of the shopping and scoring killer deals. I think I enjoy it because I am not crazy for the "big ticket" items. I like to get DVDs, makeup, and high-end holiday perfume kits on the cheap! Also, any great saver knows that "big ticket" items are not always for the best price on Black Friday (specifically, electronics).

Anyway, as you can expect, Black Friday shopping will be a little different than we are used to. For instance, Walmart in introducing a whole new way to Black Friday shop - they are spreading the holiday shopping deals out over the course of a couple weeks next month. Earlier this week, Walmart introduced us the "Black Friday Deals for Days."

How will Walmart's "Black Friday Deals for Days" work? There will be three different Black Friday "events." Every week, there will be new deals online and in stores. Check out the dates below:

  • EVENT 1: Begins ONLINE November 4 and IN STORE November 7
  • EVENT 2: Begins ONLINE November 11 and IN STORE November 14
  • EVENT 3: Begins ONLINE November 25 and IN STORE November 27

So, the savings and deals for Walmart's Black Friday event happen online and in store the first two weeks of November, and then the week of Thanksgiving. Get full details about "Black Friday Deals for Days" here.

I'm glad we have three Walmarts in Bismarck-Mandan for a three-week savings event like this!
