And updates and answers to some questions at I Heart The Mart here.
Some crazy Walmart Black Friday 2012 updates for you guys today! You’ll want to read the whole scoop over at I Heart The Mart, but here are some highlights:
- If you put items on layaway now, you can purchase on Black Friday at Black Friday prices (!). You cannot purchase now at the BF price, but you can put it on layaway now then come back on Black Friday to purchase at the price in effect then. You must pay for the item in full on Black Friday to get that price; you can’t leave it on lawayay. So, anything you see in the Walmart BF ad, you can basically “reserve” for yourself now by putting it on layaway, as long as you can find it in stock in the store.
- You can price match layaway items as long as they are identical to the item in a competitor’s ad.
- Walmart is having an online two-day Black Friday event starting early Thanksgiving and going through Friday. Some examples of items can be found in the I Heart The Mart post.
- They will price match competitor ads on Black Friday, as long as items are identical and you are purchasing within the dates and times outlined in the competitor ad.
Update — notes from their FB page:
This for instance: “This is the information we have: If you have any items in Layaway and would like to receive the reduced price during our Black Friday sale, the item(s) would need to be deleted from the Layaway account and added back to receive the event price (or price matched, whichever is lower). Keep in mind Layaway will be closed until 9am on Friday (11/23). Event prices for items sold during our first two sales events at 8pm 11/22 and 10pm 11/22 are only available while supplies last so they may be sold out when the Layaway desk reopens. We hope that helps.”
