November is here—as are early deals from Walmart to kick off the holiday shopping season.
Black Friday may be a ways off, but it is November, and early Black Friday deals are already rolling out at top retailers such as Target, Amazon, and more. Walmart has also hopped on the early deal train, with buy-now Black Friday discounts on electronics, items for the home, toys, and more available online now.
If you’re an early planner, you can start stocking up on gifts and scratching names out on your gifts-to-buy list now. If you’d rather wait until the last minute to wrap your gifts for others, you can use most of this shopping season to pick up a few discounted finds for yourself, like this super-soft weighted blanket.
Deals will be available throughout November, leading up to the official Black Friday deals, and probably beyond Black Friday, too. But if something you’ve had your eye on is on sale now, you might as well treat yourself. (When else can you pick up a TV for hundreds of dollars off the list price?)
Black Friday is Friday, November 23 this year. Walmart has announced that its Black Friday in-store deals will begin Thursday, November 22 (Thanksgiving Day) at 6 p.m. The full list of Black Friday deals—including TVs, kitchen gadgets, and home essentials—can be seen in the flyer at walmart.com. Walmart’s online Black Friday deals will be available starting Wednesday, November 21, at 10 p.m. ET. For now, though, certain Black Friday Buy Now items are available for purchase online; see Real Simple’s top picks below.
