Walmart posted on a comment on this thread “If you have an any item on Layaway and would like to receive the reduced price during our Black Friday sale the items would need to be deleted from the Layaway account and added back to receive the event price (or price matched whichever is lower). Keep in mind layaway will be closed until 9am on Friday (11/23). Event prices for items sold during our first two sales events at 8pm 11/22 and 10pm 11/22 are only available while supplies last so they may be sold out when the Layaway desk reopens.
Paul says “you won’t be out of stock because you will have the item in layaway. the sale can be going on, but it doesn’t end until friday at midnight. it will still be in stock because you have saved in Layaway.” But items that are on sale when layaway is closed, and the “doorbuster” sale ENDS before 9AM when Walmart’s layaway opens, you won’t be able to get those things.
I am confused, but Paul still says it will work.
I would avoid doing this – sorry! Should have checked it out better before I posted it. I just think employees may not know what is going on and it might be a catastrophe. Are you still going to try?
My friend Paul at I heart the mart let me know about this, and he just had an exclusive email convo with the the Director of Communications and Community Relations at Walmart, and found out you can buy items NOW and put them on layaway, then pay them off on Black Friday and you will pay Black Friday prices!
- The Black Friday Walmart ad is live you can go in now and put the items you want on layaway!
- Here’s my list of all other stores Black Friday ads, you can buy items at Walmart, put them on layway, and get the other stores prices on Black Friday IF it is the exact same item! I am excited to score the $3 barbies.
Ok that is the jest of everything below, I copied the convo below so you can read it too:
- For items already on layaway, will Walmart price match those items if they have now gone on sale for Black Friday?
Items that have been put on layaway then are paid off on Black Friday will be sold at Black Friday pricing (i.e. If you place a LG Blu-ray player on layaway today and payoff the purchase on Black Friday, you will pay the $38 Black Friday price).
- Can you use coupons for layaway items?
Yes. Walmart is committed to providing our customers with the lowest prices. To back up our price leadership promise, we will match the price of any local competitor’s printed ad for an identical product right at the cash register even on layaway items.More information is available at walmartstores.com/download/4752.pdf.

Who’s Black Friday plans just changed?
Personally, it didn’t change mine. I shop on Cyber Monday, so that I can spend Thanksgiving weekend with my hubby and kids. So I still will be passing.
