The Walmart ad for Black Friday 2013 is here. Get ready to build yourself up into a panic. It's a big one, at 42 pages, and has plenty of huge deals. It's really quite an event, and it starts at 6 p.m. on November 28, 2013, rather than beginning on the official Black Friday. Walmart will also be staggering its doorbusters, dividing them up into "events" that will be available throughout the various days at certain hours. You better be willing to shop on Thanksgiving though, because the two "events" take place at 6pm and 8pm on the holiday.
People like us tend to be focused on two things in Black Friday ads like Walmart's. The important sales are on things we either can play, or can play things on. It doesn't matter how cheap sweaters are going to be, or if tupperware is 90% off. So don't let those items drag you down, and look at a tidy list with the deals that really matter. Everything's here, with the doorbuster items with one hour, in-stock guarantees noted.
