Black Friday Ads: Walmart, Belk and More Share Early Deals
This story is part of Gift Guide, our year-round collection of the best gift ideas.
Black Friday is no longer a one-day shopping event — it’s weeks upon weeks of deals and promotions that start as early as October. Each store handles its Black Friday promotions differently, but one of the best times in the Black Friday season is when the Black Friday ads start hitting so you can start planning what to buy and where you can find it.
Until recently, Black Friday ad leaks were what everyone waited for. Retailers wanted to keep the deals a secret, but that never worked out for them, and now the retailers each start to release their own ads as early as the beginning of November. Below you will find all of the Black Friday ads that have been made available already, and we’ll continue to update this list with new ones as they’re made available.
Start date for sales: Nov. 7
Store hours: Check Walmart’s store-finder for local store hours
More info: As in previous years, Walmart’s Black Friday 2022 sale is being split out across several week-long events. The first event started online on Nov. 7 (in-store from Nov. 9) and its ad has now been released, revealing many tech and home deals going live on that date (and others going live right away). There are deals on Apple devices, Roomba robot vacuums, 4K TVs, cookware, clothing and more. Walmart Plus members get early access to the deals, too.
Other events start on Nov. 14, Nov. 21 and Nov. 28. For all of the details on dates and timings, check out the full Walmart Black Friday Deals for Days announcement.
