Walmart to price match Target, Best Buy Black Friday Deals one week early
Delivering a preemptive strike to Target, Best Buy and Toys R Us, Walmart issued a statement this morning which indicated that the retailer will pricematch specific Black Friday deals from the three competing stores one week before Black Friday begins. Starting on November 22nd at 8 a.m., online and in-store shoppers will be able to snag early deals like a 50-inch LG television for $448 (Regular MSRP $600), Skylanders and Infinity Starter Packs for $37 (Regular MSRP $75) and the LeapPad 2 for $40 (Regular MSRP $79).
That’s the cheapest that we have seen the LeapPad 2, a particularly popular learning tablet targeted at kids between the ages of 3 to 9. Other deals can be found below:
- PS4 / XBox One Titles marked down to $49 (includes Call of Duty: Ghosts, NBA 2K14 and Battlefield 4)
- Little Tikes Cozy Coupe: $35
- Nerf Rebelle Crossbow: $12
- Monopoly Board Game: $5
- Hot Wheels Single Car: 0.60 cents
Also launching today, Walmart is starting to price match local brick and mortar retailers by offering gift cards to cover the balance of a lower advertised price. This is valid for both Walmart.com and in-store prices.
By undercutting some of the Black Friday deals at Target, Best Buy and Toys R Us, Walmart is putting themselves in the position to reduce the number of people that could shop at those rival stores on Black Friday.
