Welcome to BlackFriday2011.com’s coverage of the Walmart Black Friday Preview!
The big reveal is set for 11:01pm Central. We’ll be listing items and prices in real time as they’re released, so keep refreshing your browser to get the latest list. In the meantime, you’re invited to join us on Twitter tonight from 9:30pm-11:30pm to talk about the Walmart Black Friday Preview and for a chance to win one of five $50 Walmart gift cards!
9:00pm - We’re seeing conflicting reports on whether this is a preview or the full ad. Walmart’s Facebook wall says “Tell your friends the Black Friday ad is almost here. Check back at 12:01am EST and be one of the first to see the incredible values!” That would seem to imply the full ad is to be released. On the other hand, the email we received very clearly states that the “Preview starts Thursday, Nov. 10 at 12:01 a.m. EST”. Either way, as soon as it’s released, we’ll be on it!
9:11pm - Walmart confirmed in comments on their Facebook announcement that it will be the full ad, NOT a preview! We’ll do our best to hit the highlights here on the blog.
10:02pm – Just under an hour to go, and the Twitter party is rockin’!
11:05pm – Let it begin! These are from an advance list from Walmart’s Media Relations team, leaked to us just a few minutes ago. Waiting to post this has been TORTURE! Keep in mind, this is just a preview – NOT an exhaustive list of all Black Friday deals. We’ll be diving into the ad next. More to come!
