Black Friday 2013 is on November 29. Most Black Friday shoppers eagerly await the Walmart Black Friday 2013 ad. Walmart has set a new trend to release their Black Friday flyer way in advance of the actual Black Friday. Last year Walmart released their Black Friday 2012 ad on November 8. This was 14 days before the actual Black Friday. Walmart preempts with this early release any uncontrolled leaks. Most Black Friday ad leaks happen during printing.
By releasing the Black Friday 2013 ad electronically in full ahead of the print distribution Walmart keeps in control. On top of that their Black Friday ad gets a ton of exposure during the two weeks ahead of the Black Friday sales event. I am pretty sure Walmart was pleased with last year's release process and will implement that again this year for the Walmart Black Friday 2013 ad. This means the 2013 Walmart Black Friday ad will be released on Thursday November 14.
We will of course report about the ad as soon as it is available and will analyze it again in great detail to identify the best deals. See the Top 10 Walmart Black Friday deals from last year as reference what to expect this year.
This year Black Friday is rather late falling on November 29th. In 2012, Black Friday was on November 23rd. Retailers will have four full weeks to please you with special Black Friday 2013 sales until the culmination of the actual Black Friday and the encore on Cyber Monday 2013 (December 2nd).
According to Black Friday Countdown there are 58 days until Black Friday 2013. We will again provide full analysis and guidance of Black Friday Ads and Deals in our Black Friday Hub.
