Black Friday 2021 is coming November 26, and we expect plenty of big deals from Walmart. The retailer is a great place to shop for home goods, tech, and gifts across all product categories – especially with in-store pickup as an option for last-minute shoppers. Frequent Walmart customers should also consider a Walmart Plus membership to take advantage of special perks all year long.

Below, we highlighted some of the best early Walmart deals available, along with what to expect from the retailer when the big shopping holiday rolls around.

When does Walmart’s Black Friday sale start?

Black Friday 2021 lands on November 26, but we expect Walmart will start featuring deals well before then. Its sales will likely also continue through Cyber Monday.

We’ll update this story with details and deals as new ones surface.

How we select the best Black Friday deals at Walmart

  • We only choose products that meet our high standard of coverage, from brands we’ve tested and trust.
  • We compare the prices against other retailers like Amazon, Target, and Best Buy and only include the deals that are the same or better (not including promotional discounts that come from using certain credit cards).
  • We research price history thoroughly, to ensure that every deal we list is actually worth your time.

Does Walmart have curbside pickup?

For contact-free shopping, Walmart offers curbside pickup. All you need to do is place an order online and select your pickup time slot. A Walmart team member will do your shopping and load them into your car from there.

Alternatively, some items can even be ordered online and picked up the same day. All you have to do is keep an eye out for products marked “Free Pickup Today” when shopping. Same-day pickup items are made available within four hours of placing your order – you’ll get an email when it’s ready.

What Black Friday deals should you buy at Walmart?

Historically, Walmart’s Black Friday markdowns are on par with those offered by Best Buy, Target, and Amazon – and we expect this year to be no different. Outside of a few select doorbusters, we anticipate each retailer to price-match their competitor’s prices during Black Friday. Shoppers can expect big savings on several TVs, streaming media players, kitchen appliances, and more.

Should I sign up for Walmart Plus before Black Friday?

Walmart has yet to announce if its Walmart Plus members will receive any specific Black Friday benefits. Last year, members received the same perks they do year round, like free shipping, scan and go, and free grocery delivery. The service costs $98 a year or $13 a month. Signing up for Walmart Plus is a good idea if you’re a frequent Walmart shopper, regardless of Black Friday.

If you’re planning on making smaller purchases, however, it could be beneficial to sign up for a Walmart Plus 15-day free trial right before the holiday. The free trial gets you free shipping without an order minimum, meaning you can make as many impulse buys as you’d like without worrying about shipping costs.
