As we announced Friday, Walmart has launched their Cyber Monday sale! The sale, which started at 12AM PST, will run online for 24 hours and features electronics deals normally reserved for Black Friday sales. Walmart will also be offering weekly specials on electronics, apparel, home items and toys for the rest of the holiday season.
They are offering free shipping on any item from their Top 100 Gifts list, which features notable merchandise in categories ranging from toys to technology. Otherwise, Walmart has free shipping on orders over $50, and free ship-to-store pickup. You don't have to wait until Black Friday - start your holiday shopping, and saving, now!
Levi's is running their Friends and Family Sale with 30% off sitewide and free shipping when you enter promotional code "30FORYOU" (exp. 11/3). This sale excludes Vintage Collection and 49ers styles. It does, however, include their Made & Crafted line - which is often excluded from these kind of sales! Note, availability of sizes and styles may be limited.
Levi's offered a similar 30% and free shipping sale in both late October and mid-November of last year. They also offered 40% off sitewide and free shipping during Black Friday 2013. Levi's has a 60-day return policy, so if they have a better deal later on you can take advantage of it.
If you did not take advantage of it earlier, Living Social still has a deal for a 1-year Sam's Club Plus Membership, a $20 gift card, and 4 free merchandise vouchers for the price of $45 through November 4th.
The above deal would of course enable you to take further advantage of the deals in this ad, which start at 7AM on November 15th. It is interesting to note that while Walmart is one of the most frequently railed against retailers in the Thanksgiving debate, Sam's Clubs are closed on Thanksgiving.
The ad promises that, excluding clearance items, these will be the best Sam's Club prices from November 15th, 2014 to December 31st, 2014. However, it does caution that the quantities are limited, and there will be no rain checks. The nice thing about this ad is that they tell you how many items per store they expect to have, and whether or not the items will be available online.
This ad offers an eclectic blend of items, featuring iPhones, Apple tablets, electronic fireplaces, kitchen goods, TVs, jewelry, toys, and electronics. Some of the better deals include:
As we previously reported, popular electronics retailer Newegg's Black November promotion starts today with a Black November Kickoff. The site welcomes you to "a MONTH of deals" with deals that expire at 11:59PM PT on Sunday, November 2nd.
Every week until Black Friday, Walmart will feature 20,000 rollback offers on this holiday season's most popular items! Walmart has already put over 300 early bird specials live, with free shipping on all orders of $50 or more (otherwise, you can ship to your local Walmart store for free).
Some notable items for this week's sale include, but are not limited to:
As usual they have left out opening hours for their 3-day After Thanksgiving Sale. Last year stores opened at 6am, an hour earlier than previous years. Although this is a 3-day sale, all items are limited to what your local store has in-stock.
As you can probably tell this is not the finished ad, but a work in progress. The pricing is likely to change, so we just assume that the pricing is incorrect. The big news is their store hours, and general approach to Black Friday 2014. As you can see at the top of the ad in a nice bright red circle is "Thanksgiving Sale," a way to double up on the approach some retailers are taking to trumpet family values by staying closed on Thanksgiving Day. Not only will True Value not be open on Thanksgiving, but they are having a Thanksgiving Sale, not a Black Friday sale. They even discuss the "value of family time" in the bottom left corner of the ad (although it's very hard to read in this leaked pre-release).
Whatever they are choosing to call it, True Value is starting their Black Friday 2014 sale on Wednesday, and they will be closed Thursday for Thanksgiving. We know they will be open and running deals on Black Friday as part of their Thanksgiving Day Sale because the 50% Off Coupon is valid on Friday. We believe that the coupon in the bottom center area of the ad, good for half off one item priced $50 or less, will remain in the final version. The ad also appears to hint at deals on Saturday, inviting you to "shop small."
