Walmart just announced some of their early holiday promotions. First, starting tomorrow (Saturday) they will offer more than 20,000 items on rollback. These deals will be available in stores and we also expect many to be offered at the same price online on Walmart.com.
Next, shortly after midnight PT on Monday morning, they will have a special Cyber Sale with 15 deals that they claim will be similar to those found on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. See the press release for more details. We'll have full coverage of this sale as Monday gets closer.

Walmart is considering matching prices from online retailers such as Amazon.com according to an article today in the Wall Street Journal. This price matching strategy is currently being tested in Atlanta, Charlotte, Dallas, Phoenix and northwest Arkansas.
Other retailers such as Target and Best Buy have similar online price matching policies. It should be interesting to see if this test is expanded to other markets during the holiday shopping season.

First in a month-long series of posts with ways to help you save money on Black Friday.
In less than a week, Amazon.com will be starting their massively popular Black Friday Sale, a month-long celebration of limited-time deals. Many of these deals will only be available for an hour or two. To maximize your savings with these deals, you need to have Amazon Prime.
Amazon.com recently announced that many of their popular Lightning Deals during the next few months will be available to Prime members a full 30 minutes before the general public. You do not wan to miss out on these deals because you weren't a Prime member.
Luckily you can get a free 1-month trial of Prime here. This free trial will take you through Black Friday this year. If you are a student, you can also choose to get a free 6-month trial of Amazon Student which offers some of the same benefits - see the site for full details.

Nielsen released data from a survey they did among gamers showing the top 10 most coveted video games for each of the major systems. The research shows that franchises such as Call of Duty, Madden, The Sims, FIFA and others are again among the most wished-for titles.

We took the data from the past 5 years to find out how soon before Black Friday each ad typically gets leaked here on GottaDeal.com. We then based those days on this year's Black Friday date, November 28th, to come up with a calendar for this year for many of the most popular stores.
Of course you may remember that last year we had a crazy 36-hour period that saw ads from Walmart, Best Buy, Target, Kohl's, Sears, Kmart, Sam's Club, Home Depot and many others all released right after each other. We expect something similar this year around November 10-11.
