Walmart’s Black Friday 2015 ads have been released for their Sam’s Club stores. As expected, Walmart’s Black Friday sale deals leaked out so far include many so-called Black November specials, but the Sam’s Club Black Friday ads also lists many Xbox One PS4 bundles, Ultra HD 4K TVs, and Apple iPad devices for only Thanksgiving day. This year, some of the Black Friday Walmart deals are also only available online on Thanksgiving day via Walmart.com.
[UPDATE] The fully leaked Walmarts ads are now online! In addition, Walmart has announced a major change to their Black Friday sales strategy that is a game changer.
In a related report by the Inquisitr, unfortunately some retailers are saying “Bah humbug” right after Black Friday 2015 is over. Right before families plan on celebrating the Christmas holiday, Target will be closing stores around the United States, and some analysts expect a sudden rise in U.S. job losses.
While some Americans believe Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday deals should never be mixed, Walmart’s Black Friday 2015 plans are claimed to be a way to help the American consumer manage their busy schedules.
“Our members have told us that the holidays leave them feeling time-strapped. The new Pre-Black Friday Event is designed to help alleviate some of the stress that comes with preparing for a big meal and having a gift list to fulfill,” said Rosalind Brewer, president and CEO of Sam’s Club, according to Business Wire. “We want members to come explore our new holiday items, take advantage of the special savings, and enjoy getting their shopping done without feeling rushed.”
According to Black Friday survey released by FatWallet, not everyone would agree.
- 42% said they do not like stores opening on Thanksgiving
- 26% said Black Friday sales start way too early
- 29% think there are so many sales now that it doesn’t matter
- 5% said they like to shop on Thanksgiving
Sam’s Club Black Friday 2015 hours will begin online at midnight on Thursday, November 27, 2015, on SamsClub.com. The main Sam’s Club Black Friday deals will be available in-store on Friday, November 27, at 7 a.m. for the early shoppers. Non-members will still need to purchase a Sam’s Club membership for a minimum of $45 in order to participate in the shopping madness.
Black Friday TV Deals And Electronics
One of the better HDTV deals being advertised is the Samsung 55″ 4K Ultra HD Smart TV with a $30 Sam’s Club Gift Card. As a comparison, one of the recent Sam’s Club “Shocking Value” specials was a RCA 65″ 4K Ultra HD Smart TV for only $798. But Samsung 4K TVs command a price premium in comparison to other brands. The Sam’s Club deal is also offering a Samsung 65″ Class Curved 4K Ultra HD Smart TV for $1,478, but keep in mind that curved LED screens also bump the price considerably.

Black Friday Xbox One And PlayStation 4 Bundles
Gamers will be interested in a separate article that discusses the Black Friday videogame deals available at retailers like GameStop and others. Now, Sony has officially dropped the PS4 price down to $349.99 ahead of the Black Friday deals. It is predicted that some of Walmart’s PlayStation 4 deals will drop down to $299, although some retailers may give an extra $50 with a gift card, dropping the net price to around $250.
So far, the Sam’s Club PS4 and Xbox One bundle deals are following that prediction almost exactly.
- Disney Infinity 3.0 or Skylanders SuperChargers Starter Packs ($37.88)
- Guitar Hero Live ($69.98)
- Xbox One Gears of War Bundle ($299)
- Sony PS4 Uncharted Bundle ($299)
- Huffy Cruiser ($99.98)
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Pedal Car ($139.98, Sam’s Club Exclusive)
Brent Shelton of FatWallet says that Sam’s Club PS4 bundle is actually one of the best deals they have seen for the gaming console.
“I have my annual BF predictions and it looks like the Sam’s Club PS4 console bundle deal for $299 actually beats my Video Game predictions of $350,” Shelton said. “This is for their one day early special sale on November 19. That’s actually the lowest price I’ve ever seen on a PS4 bundle.”
