If you're finally ready to experience the event for yourself, here's what you need to know compete with the most seasoned shoppers - while keeping your spending in check.

Ads are useful for price comparison information but risky for the unprepared in-store shopper.
But beware - your fellow shoppers might tempt you to overshoot your budget, too. If there are not enough items in stock, Walmart will guarantee pick up of the item before Christmas at the Black Friday pricing.
