Just like we saw with Best Buy, Walmart has decided to officially announce their plans for Black Friday 2012. And not only is Walmart going to offer a guarantee on select items, they are kicking the sales off on Thanksgiving and promising that this will be the “best Black Friday ever.”

We suspect that some are going to disagree with the best ever comment so putting that aside, lets dive into those guaranteed deals. Walmart is touting this as a one-hour guarantee and has said that customers who are inside the store and in the queue line between 10 PM and 11 PM local time on November 22 will be able to purchase the following electronics at special low prices;

  • Apple iPad 2 16GB with Wi-Fi – $399 plus get a $75 Walmart Gift Card
  • Emerson 32” 720p LCD TV – $148
  • LG Blu-ray™ Player – $38

Otherwise, the Walmart Black Friday deals will be broken down into three time periods. The time periods and the items that will be available during each break down as follows;

And finally, keep in mind that Walmart does price matching — even on Black Friday.

“The retailer’s long-standing ad match guarantee will also be in effect on Black Friday. This allows customers to match the price of any local competitor’s printed ad for an identical product right at the cash register.”

In other words, it sounds like Walmart maybe a good place to get your Black Friday shopping done.
