Get Black Friday Prices TODAY at Walmart with Layaway!

November 15, 2012

You can get Black Friday prices at Walmart NOW! How? Well Paul over at iHearttheMart has figured all that out for us.  And here are the highlights.

You can put items on layaway now, and pay the Black Friday price, Walmart or another store, when you pick them up. A few things to keep in mind:

  • Find items you want from the Walmart Black Friday Ad or any stores Black Friday ad that are sold at Walmart and put them on layaway now (by 11/21), using today’s price.
  • Go back to Walmart on Thursday or Friday, whenever the Black Friday price is valid, keeping in mind that some are door busters that will only be valid during certain times also.  Make sure to bring printed ad with you.
  • The layaway window does not open until 9am on Friday.  So items that are door busters and the sale ends before 9am on Friday will not be available at the sale price.
  • You must pay in FULL on Thursday or Friday (during the sale time window) and close out your layaway contract or it will stay on layaway for the original amount.
  • If you are price matching other stores it must be the exact same item.

Paul from IHearttheMart had an email conversation with the Director of Communications and Community Relations at Walmart, and the details of this conversation are below:

Thanks to IHearttheMart for this great information!

I don’t know about other areas but I have black friday shopped at Walmart for years and their black friday items are packaged different and have a different price barcode. They do not put these items out until the black friday event. My walmart will not give you the non black friday specific item for the same price. This might work on electronic items though. Just something to think about before a bunch of you run out and rack up layaway bills.

Do you know if this applies for Kmart as well? I have somethings (toys) on layaway there but if not then I can swap to Walmart!!!

I went to my Walmart and asked about the iPad 2 for Black Friday. The customer service person said the Black Friday deals are packaged differently and are not the same as what is on the floor right now. The layaway idea would not work for those items.
