Last year Walmart introduced for the first time Black Friday doorbuster deals that you could get for sure, if you are there in time. The Walmart One-Hour Guarantee makes it easy to score hot Black Friday doorbuster deals. Maybe too easy? This year Walmart increased the number of doorbuster deals in the one-hour guarantee, becuase they say you loved it last year. I am actually amazed that other retailers are not offering these guaranteed to get Black Friday deals. Obviously it is great for consumers to know that they can get certain Black Friday doorbuster deals for sure. Or maybe not? Maybe, consumers want to hunt limited stocked Black Friday doorbuster deals? To score a one-hour guarantee doorbuster dea ls not something you can brag about the next day at the office water cooler.
Traditionally the hottest Black Friday doorbuster deals are in extremely limited supply. Sometimes a store does only have an inventory of 5 items. Most of time there are about 10 items. To get these you need to be among the first 10 shoppers in the line infront of the Black Friday store. That is not easy and requires to queue up early.
In my opinion the one-hour guarantee is actually a reason to visit a Walmart store on Thanksgiving Day at 6pm. Because you will get the deal(s) you want. What is your take? Are you a fan of the one-hour guarantee or do you think it is taking the fun out of Black Friday?
Walmart will offer 21 Doorbuster deals with the one-hour guarantee. How does the One-Hour Guarantee work? You need to be in the designated lines at a Walmart store between 6 and 7 p.m. or 8 and 9 p.m. local time on Thursday, Nov. 28. You either get the deal right there or when it is sold out you can purchase a guarantee card. This card guarantees you that you get the item at the Black Friday price before Christmas.
