Walmart Inc. (WMT - Free Report) is leaving no stone unturned to make the most of the holiday season. From announcing additional hiring to manage the season rush well, to offering great deals and easy shopping options — the retail behemoth is doing everything to make the most of this significant selling period. The omnichannel retailer unveiled the comeback of its "Black Friday Deals for Days” event, which received a solid customer feedback last year.

In this month-long savings event, customers can enjoy a safe and easy shopping experience at compelling prices. This year, the company has also come up with something extra for its paying Walmart+ members, who will get access to the online Black Friday events all through November. Similar to last year, Walmart will spread out the above-mentioned savings to three events across November, wherein customers can get the best prices of the season. Each event will commence on Walmart.com, with the same deals continuing at Walmart stores.

The first event will begin online on Nov 3 and continue till Nov 5 in stores, wherein the company will offer impressive deals on toys and electronics. Thereafter, the next event will commence online on Nov 10 and go up to Nov 12 in stores, wherein customers can make greater savings on apparel, hardlines and home goods among other items. Finally, the third savings event will offer customers the biggest savings of the season.

Walmart+ members are especially likely to benefit from the “Black Friday Deals for Days” event, as they can get early access to the savings. In addition to this, members can continue enjoying the perks associated with the Walmart+, such as free shipping with no order minimum; Rx for Less; free delivery from store and Scan and Go option.

Apart from these deals, Walmart stated that it will offer Rollbacks on the products online as well as in the stores, over and above its already low prices. All said, customers can enjoy great savings by shopping at Walmart, however and whenever they want, throughout the season.
