It appears to be that Walmart is aiming for world domination with the news release today pertaining to Black Friday. You ready for the news?????? This year Black Friday is totally transforming. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO CROWD FIGHT THIS YEAR!!!!!! You can head to Walmart right now if you wanted to and put everything you want on layaway THEN head to your store anytime on actual Black Friday and pay for your items in full AND receive the advertised Black Friday price.
UPDATE from Walmart directly:
“If you have an any item on Layaway and would like to receive the reduced price during our Black Friday sale the items 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.”
Black Friday 2012: Breaking News from Walmart Headquarters
- For items already on layaway, will Walmart price match those items if they have now gone on sale for Black Friday?
Items that have been put on layaway then are paid off on Black Friday will be sold at Black Friday Pricing (i.e. If you place a LG Blu-ray player on layaway today and payoff the purchase on Black Friday, you will pay the $38 Black Friday price).
- Can you use coupons for layaway items?
Yes. Walmart is committed to providing our customers with the lowest prices. To back up our price leadership promise, we will match the price of any local competitor’s printed ad for an identical product right at the cash register even on layaway items. More information is available here.
