Walmart Price Matching on Black Friday (+ 1 Hour Guarantee On HOT Items)!!


Walmart has announced that they will again be price matching on Black Friday!

Here is the info from their press release:

Their Price Is Our Price: The retailer’s long-standing ad match guarantee will also be in effect on Black Friday. This allows customers to match the price of any local competitor’s printed ad for an identical product right at the cash register.

It certainly makes Black Friday shopping easier when you can do it all in one place!

**Note: Remember that Walmart only does price matching on EXACT prices (not on % off or any sales that are not price-specific).**

Also, starting this year Walmart will be giving customers a 1-hour guarantee for 3 of the hottest Black Friday items.  Customers who are inside the store and in the queue line between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. local time on November 22 can purchase the following electronics at special low prices (guaranteed!):

  • Apple iPad®2 16GB with Wi-Fi – $399 plus get a $75 Walmart Gift Card
  • Emerson® 32” 720p LCD TV – $148
  • LG® Blu-ray™ Player – $38

  1. Jessica Long says:

    With the price matching, does it only apply to the time frame on the ad. Like the Target ad starts at 4 am, will walmart make us wait until 4 am to price match it, or will we be able to price match as soon as their midnight sale starts?

    • @Jessica Long, That’s a great question!

      Here’s the reply I received from Walmart:

      “It does not matter what time competitor stores are opening on the Friday after Thanksgiving. Walmart will still honor those prices. But, Walmart will not honor competitor advertisements from outside of the store’s local trade territory.”

      I hope that helps! It’s good to know that you can get the deals from any local store right at 12:01 on Black Friday at Walmart!!

  2. I just ordered a refurbished IPAD 2 from Apple store for 319.00 So I called them about Walmarts Apple Ipad 2 NEW for 399.00 plus you get a 75.00 bonus of a Walmart Gift Card. That brings the price around the same, why would I buy there refurbished one. Apple people told me that they can’t match or do anything about it. Unreal

  3. I just bought one of the phones that is included on the black Friday list. Will Mart give me the sale price when I bring it he receipt?
