Walmart's huge Black Friday sale starts today, and even if you're doing all your shopping online you know that site is going to be packed with other people doing the same. Don't lose out on a great item just because you didn't see it first. Sign up for Walmart+ and you can get access to Walmart's Black Friday sale four hours before the deals go live for everyone else. You can actually access the deals and checkout before regular shoppers even see them. The deals go live tonight at 7 p.m. Eastern, but Walmart+ subscribers can take a look starting at 3 p.m. Eastern.

It is worth pointing out that the Walmart+ free trial will not include early Black Friday access. You want to start your paid membership to gain that benefit. The membership costs $12.95 a month or $98 a year after the trial ends, which is still less than Amazon Prime's $119 a year. One month would cover you through the end of Walmart's Black Friday sales, and could save you far more than its cost if you plan on doing some shopping this year.

Once you've signed up for your membership, head over to Walmart's Early Access area and browse the deals before they go live.

Walmart Plus membership | $13 a month

Gain four hours of early access to Walmart's Black Friday deals this week. Plus you'll get tons of other benefits that will keep going long after the holiday season is over, should you wish to stick with your subscription.

Obviously gaining early access to Black Friday is a huge benefit, but it's also not the only benefit of Walmart+. You get so much more for your money. If you're a regular Walmart shopper or, more importantly, you want to shift from going to the store to getting things delivered to you, then you should really desire this membership.

The biggest benefit of Walmart+ is that you can get free shipping on all orders over $35. There's no other restrictions on that, either. Get the free delivery as many times as you want. You can get the orders as quickly as same day, and because of that you can even include groceries in there. There is a Freshness Guarantee, too, so you'll get the best products available.

Other benefits include saving on pharmacy prescriptions, saving five cents per gallon on fuel at Walmart and Murphy gas stations, and access to Sam's Club fuel centers that already have low gas prices. Plus, the Scan & Go checkout means a contact-free checkout that's super fast and gets you in out of the store as quickly as possible.
