Walmart’s Black Friday promotions are out today, and the discounter says it bought so “deep” that it will have enough of three hot electronics items to satisfy shoppers who are in their stores Thanksgiving night.
To get a $75 Walmart gift card with the purchase of an Apple iPad 2, however, shoppers have to be in the store and in line between 10 and 11 p.m. on Thanksgiving.
Along with the gift card for the iPad 2 (16 gigabytes with Wi-Fi) at the list price of $399, the Thanksgiving night price cuts are for a 32-inch Emerson 720p high definition LCD TV for $148, (an $80 discount) and a $38 Blu-ray player.
If any of these items happen to sell out before 11 p.m. (local time), Walmart will offer a “guarantee card” for the item, which has to be paid for by midnight and registered online. The product will then be shipped to the store where it was purchased for the customer to pick up before Christmas
Walmart is staggering its other deals starting at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving through the weekend.

One thought on “Walmart Releases Black Friday Promos Early”
The bigger story is the timing. This year, Walmart will open its doors for Black Friday shopping at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving – a full 2 hours earlier than last year. And to keep early-bird shoppers in the stores, deals will be introduced in three waves: 8 pm for toys, video games and gaming systems, home, and apparel; 10 p.m. for name-brand electronics, including Nook e-readers, Nikon cameras, and Samsung HDTVs; and 5 a.m. Friday for the rest, including jewelry, tires, and a few extra TVs.
