When Walmart announced the rollout of its inaugural Walmart Weekend sale earlier last month—a three-day event ostensibly introduced to compete with Amazon’s annual Prime Day bonanza—we were a little skeptical. Now that the event’s officially underway…well, we’re still a little skeptical. But there are some solid deals in the mix, mostly in categories the big-box retailer already specializes in, like electronics, home goods, and grooming products.
The only catch? You need to be a Walmart+ member to participate. Thankfully, signing up is pretty painless: the company is currently offering a 30-day free trial, though in order to take advantage of the event you’ll have to fork over the $12.95 monthly subscription fee upfront. If you’re a diehard ‘Mart loyalist, now’s your best chance to score “exclusive, unprecedented Black Friday-like savings”—per an especially optimistic email blast tied to the sale—without lining the pockets of a certain space-colonizing billionaire.
The Walmart Weekend sale formally kicked off at 3 PM on June 2, and lasts until 7 PM on Sunday, June 5 (or Team Walmart decides to pack up its promotions and concede defeat). Keep scrolling to see every item we’re eyeing at the moment, but if none of them tickle your fancy we found at least one great buy always worth the investment.
