Still overwhelmed? We created a guide with Every Black Friday 2018 4K Smart TV Deal Sorted by Size and Price to help you sort your options.
Of course, Sam's Club is owned and operated by Walmart Inc., so it's worth taking a look at our picks for the best Walmart's Black Friday deals if you're not a Sam's Club member.
Also, the Sam's Club Black Friday ad recommends that members check back on November 22nd to see event pricing for Nest items, as well as the Google Home Mini.
When Was the Sam's Club Black Friday Ad Scan Released?
- November 11th, 2018
What Time Does Sam's Club Open on Black Friday and Thanksgiving?
- Stores will be closed on Thanksgiving and will open at 7 AM on Black Friday, November 23rd
Brick-and-mortar Sam's Club locations are closed once again this Thanksgiving, but stores will open bright and early at 7 AM on Black Friday.
The sale extends through the entire weekend with prices valid through November 25th, or while supplies last.
When Does the Sale Begin Online?
- 12:01 AM EST on Thursday, November 22nd
Just like last year, Sam's Club Black Friday sale will kick off early online at 12:01 AM EST on Thanksgiving Day.
All of the top doorbusters are available online (and they all ship for free), so you can avoid the crowds by shopping at SamsClub.com/BlackFriday instead.
When is The Best Time to Shop?
- Online, as early as possible
Sam's Club's doorbuster deals will all be available online, so shopping from home on Thanksgiving Day is likely your best bet. Still, it's likely that whatever you're after will sell out quickly once the floodgates open due to limited quantities.
With that in mind, if you're a brick-and-mortar-type shopper, make sure you're at Sam's Club well ahead of the crowd. If you prefer to sit at home and shop in leisure, you'll want to be on top of that online sale as early as possible.
More Ways to Save at Sam's Club on Black Friday
Like Costco, Sam's Club is a membership-only retailer. However, you don't need a membership to shop online.
Since Sam's Club's deals are available online this year, non-members should consider ignoring the brick-and-mortar shops and making their purchases exclusively online. The downside, however, is that non-members are charged a 10% service fee.
If you're interested in shopping directly at Sam's Club, however, memberships start at $45 and immediately offer perks on gas prices, tire repair, and battery testing.

Our forums are currently buzzing about new Sam's Club membership deals featuring bonus gift cards, Instant Savings, and special treats like cheesecake and fruit trays.
