The countdown to Black Friday is on, and Walmart Canada is sharing how you can make your shopping experience as smooth as possible this year.
Since things are a little different in terms of shopping this year, Walmart is making it easy to take advantage of deals from the comfort of your own home. take a look at some of their top tips to prepare for Black Friday at Walmart.
What you need to know
In case you need a reminder, Black Friday this year falls on Nov. 27, with many retailers offering extended sales so you won’t miss out on savings. Walmart is no exception, and ahead of the big day you’ll be able to shop deals through Walmart.ca as early as 9 p.m. EST on November 26.
Just a few days later, you’ll also find huge savings on Nov. 30, when Walmart.ca will be releasing even more exclusive deals online in time for Cyber Monday.
The biggest deals you can expect
You’ll want to take note if you’re looking for deals on electronics, which will be a big focus this year. Sign up to receive weekly emails to be the first to know when your favourite TVs, laptops, small appliances and audio all go on sale.
As well as keeping your eyes peeled for early deals through email, it’s also a good idea to stay on top of the latest announcements through social media to make sure you don’t miss a thing. Plus, we’ll be sure to update this space as soon as more details are revealed.
Don’t forget to shop smart
In the heat of the moment, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by choices when you’re shopping. To help curb impulse buys, Walmart is also sharing a few top tips to make sure you find exactly what you’re looking for this Black Friday, no matter where you decide to shop.
Create a shopping list
Much like when you’re grocery shopping, sticking to what you actually need is much easier when you’re equipped with a well-stocked shopping list.
Set a budget
If you’re looking to stay on budget, give yourself an allowance ahead of time, and separate items into must-haves and nice-to-haves so you don’t end up going overboard on sale items.
If you’ll be shopping online, be sure to fill your cart ahead of time to put together a selection of items to watch. That way, when the deals go live, you’ll already have everything together and can beat the rush to the checkout.
Plan on waking up early (or staying up late) to get a head start on the items in your online cart before they sell out.
Think long term
In the run-up to the holidays, you’ll want to start shopping early to avoid potential shipping delays for any gifts. Luckily, Black Friday is the perfect opportunity to find gifts for everyone on your shopping list without breaking the bank.
Know the return policy
Before you buy anything, be sure to inquire about the return policy if you're not 100 per cent certain that you’ll keep everything. Bonus tip: don't forget to ask for gift receipts!
