New, Online-Only Black Friday Specials Announced by Walmart

Out of the blue we get an email from Walmart with a spreadsheet of 421 online-only Black Friday specials. These are deals you haven't seen in their BF ad or anywhere else.

Some of the amazing deals we've seen are:

Get The Hunger Games [2-Disc Blu-ray + Digital Copy] for $8.99
Get The Hunger Games [2-Disc Blu-ray + Digital Copy] for $8.99

Best Buy and Amazon.com are both selling The Hunger Games on Blu-ray + Digital Copy for just $8.99. For a recently-released blu-ray and box office hit, that's an extraordinary deal. Normal price is around $20.

It's for sale right now at BestBuy.com. It will come to about $9.45 after tax. Shipping is free if you don't mind receiving it somewhere between Dec. 3-10. It might arrive sooner, but that's the estimate on their website. If you want it to have it next week it will cost you $4.50. That's not worth it unless of course you have some higher ticket items in your cart as well.

You might be better off waiting to pick it up in-store. Or if you're an Amazon Prime member, you can get it during Amazon's 11/23 10:20 AM to 2:20 PM CST lightning deal. If you don't have Amazon prime, standard 3-5 day shipping costs around $2-3. However, if you purchase exceeds $25, you may be eligible for free shipping.

Bass Pro Shops Black Friday Ad
Bass Pro Shops Black Friday Ad

We've posted the Bass Pro Shops Black Friday Ad. One really great thing about this ad is Bass Pro Shops is very clear about their store hours, giving us a Wednesday to Sunday calendar. That's very helpful. Rather than focusing exclusively on Friday, Bass Pro is having a 5 Day Sale (Wednesday to Sunday). They will be open on Thanksgiving Day from 8am to 6pm. Their Black Friday sale starts at 5am and ends at 11am.

While some retailers will refer to the 5-11am period as doorbuster or early bird sales, Bass Pro is saying that's their entire Black Friday sale. No matter how you look at it, It's clear you can save big that whole week.
