Let the holiday shopping begin. Walmart is bringing back its month-long savings event, “Black Friday Deals for Days.”

Like the past two years, Walmart will spread the excitement of Black Friday savings over three events throughout November and cap off a month of deals with Cyber Monday, delivering customers great prices on the must-have gifts of the season, the retailer said.

New this year, Walmart’s “Black Friday Deals for Days” events will begin on Walmart.com every Monday in November. Walmart also is bringing back its highly anticipated Early Access benefit, and it’s better than ever. Paid Walmart+ members will have the advantage of an extended early access window that begins seven hours before the scheduled start times for all three events on Walmart.com.

“Black Friday has evolved over the years from a single day to an entire season and is without a doubt the most anticipated shopping event of the year. Our customers are counting on us more than ever to help them find the season’s best gifts while delivering incredible savings like only Walmart can,” said Charles Redfield, executive vice president and chief merchandising officer for Walmart U.S. “That’s why we continue to challenge ourselves to offer an unparalleled Black Friday experience each year, giving customers more of what they love – more opportunities to shop even bigger savings on Walmart’s best assortment of gifts, easily and conveniently, online or in our stores.”
