Whether you’ll be getting up before dawn to get an in-store Black Friday bargain or cozying up on the couch with your laptop, there’s one thing we can all agree on—teachers love a good deal.

Here at TeacherLists, we’ve been gathering the best deals and steals out there so teachers can take advantage of all the savings that Black Friday 2022 has to offer.

And, we aren’t done yet! We will be adding more Black Friday deals as they’re announced closer to the big shopping day. Which, if you plan to shop in stores on Thanksgiving or Black Friday, check store hours first. Many large retailers are closing their doors on Thanksgiving day and may open later on Black Friday than in past years.


Early Black Friday Sales for Teachers


Amazon dropped Early Black Friday Deals with tons of new daily deals every day leading up to Black Friday.

On Black Friday, Amazon will have one-day deals and lighting deals before continuing these deals during its Cyber Monday sale on Nov. 28.


Instead of saving all of their big deals for Black Friday, Target will be revealing new pre-Black Friday deals every Sunday throughout November. The “official” Black Friday sale will start Nov. 20. And there’s no need to hold out for lower prices closer to Christmas. If Target drops its price on a Black Friday deal, they’ll match the lower price through Dec. 24.


Walmart plans three separate November sales in what it’s calling Black Friday Deals for Days. Sales begin on every Monday in November, and new deals are announced each week.

  • Event 1 (Deals begin online Nov. 7 at 7 p.m. ET and continue in stores Nov. 9): Walmart+ Early Access runs 12 p.m. ET – 7 p.m. ET on Mon., Nov. 7.
  • Event 2 (Deals begin online Nov. 14 at 7 p.m. ET and continue in stores Nov. 16): Walmart+ Early Access runs 12 p.m. ET – 7 p.m. ET on Mon., Nov. 14.
  • Event 3 (Deals begin online Nov. 21 at 7 p.m. ET and continue in stores Nov. 25): Walmart+ Early Access runs 12 p.m. ET – 7 p.m. ET on Mon., Nov. 21.
  • Cyber Monday (Nov. 28): Walmart will close out a month of incredible savings with its Cyber Monday event.

Walmart is also bringing back its highly anticipated Early Access benefit, and it’s better than ever. Paid Walmart+ members will have the advantage of an extended early access window that begins seven hours before the scheduled start times for all three events on

New this year, Walmart is introducing its “We’ll hold your place” virtual queuing experience. Customers’ places will be held in line for the highest demand items during Black Friday events while they continue shopping the site for other gifts or weekly essentials, making sure they know when they’re in line, their estimated wait time and how long they have to checkout to guarantee an item. Spots can be saved in multiple queues at once, too!
Walmart also added several other features to enhance their online shopping experience, making shopping their Black Friday deals online even easier.
