Walmart Black Friday Guarantee and Price Matching Policy

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my full disclosure policy for details.

Many of you have been asking about Walmart’s price matching policy for Black Friday.  The good news is that they will price match as usual on Black Friday!  That means, you can use your competitor’s ad and get the same deal at Walmart – even on those doorbusters.

They are also offering other ways for you to save. One of these is the one-hour guarantee, being held on Thanksgiving night at 10 pm.  All stores will have enough stock of these 3 products for one hour:

  • 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

If these happen to sell out before 11 pm, they will offer customers a guarantee card, which must be paid for by midnight and then registered online.  It will then be shipped to the store where it was purchased, so you can pick it up.

As shared on our Black Friday page, Walmart is offering 3 different savings events.  The idea is to help people shop during the time that works for them.  Make sure you review their ad for all of the various doorbuster deals being offered at the various times.  You can even download the Walmart Mobile app so that you can get quick access to deals and availability to purchase select “in store only” items online –  before they will even be available in the store!

Finally, many of you have been wondering if these great deals will be available online or not.  They are actually running a two-day online event (starting Thursday).  They will have gret deals on products including Tablets, Nintendo Dsi, Razor Scooters, and more!

    Hello, do you know how long I would have to go to Walmart to try to get price matching on a Black Friday item that was on sale on Thanksgiving in the Sears ad? It’s the 50″ Toshiba for $299 that was a doorbuster at Sears and on sale at 8pm. If I went on Monday, for instance, to see if they can match the price, would that be in time?

    Also, does the item have to be in stock at the store I go to for price matching? It might only be in stock online, something like that. I don’t know if they would price match it and then order it to be sent to the store so I can pick it up. I’ve never tried price matching anything before but it’s definitely worth a shot!

    Thank you. 🙂

    I went to Wal-Mart on Friday armed with ads from Target and Best Buy. When I was checking out, I saved the price match items for last. I was told by the cashier that they would NOT match any doorbuster items. I was able to get them to let a few Black Friday deals to ring up. But, I was forced to leave without several items. This was a first. Earlier, Target had refused match any Black Friday ads. Wal-Mart’s refusal caught me totally off guard. I had used the price-match strategy for the past 5 yrs with no problem. I saw a Wal-Mart ad on t.v. tonight encouraging shoppers to come in for their Black Friday deals and they would match other’s ads! I will be contacting them to complain about their blatant lie.
