Walmart to offer Black Friday deals on Thanksgiving

  • Amazon Black Friday

Deloitte are forecasting Black Friday 2017 sales week figures to be up 3.6% on previous year whilst total sales season figures between November and January are forecasted to reach the $1 trillion mark for the first time. Other deals include an iPhone 6 for only $129, discounts on gaming consoles like the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, DVDs as low as $1.96 and more.

The move is part of a broader push by the online auction site to become a holiday shopping destination.

Whilst several years ago Black Friday was a day where hordes of shoppers descended upon stores across the country, more and more shoppers are now turning to the web to find the best deals. It's called "Don't Wait for Black Friday".

And while your first thought might be for Amazon's Black Friday deals, a new report by Astound Commerce shows that Walmart might not be so far behind at all. The listing page Ebay set up for the program even says exactly which retailer and deal the listing is being compared to, and if that price is being "matched" or "beat".

It is also highly recommended to sign up as an Amazon Prime customer as Prime customers will get free postage and packaging on all purchases, in addition to exclusive early access to Lightning Deals, throughout the Black Friday period, between 17th - 26th November.

Ebay is also offering its price match guarantee from Black Friday through Cyber Monday.

The program is part of a broader push by Ebay to become a bigger holiday shopping destination.
