The early Walmart Black Friday 2014 deals kicked off into high gear this week with early bird online specials only available for a limited time.
You don’t need to wait for November 28th to start shopping the Walmart Black Friday 2014 deals, but this morning shoppers trying to check the prices or add any of these Walmart Black Friday 2014 deals to their carts are in for frustrations.
You can browse all the early Walmart Black Friday 2014 deals, but when you try to see the price or get to any part where you can add the item to you cart, you see an error message stating,
” Sorry… We’re having technical difficulties and are looking into the problem now.”
Users can try again, or go to the home page. Neither of these options do much to show the prices for these early bird Walmart Black Friday 2014 sales.
You can browse the various early bird online Walmart Black Friday 2014 ad, to see what is on sale, but until the problems are fixed you cannot see prices or add items to your cart.
Donna, a Walmart social media support woman, told one customer, “We apologize for the inconvenience. We are working on the issue and hope to have it corrected soon.”, but there is no specific time frame for a fix.
Hopefully this is not a preview of the Black Friday problems we’ll see at Walmart and other retailers through the shopping season. Huge demand for deals can take a website offline, slow it down dramatically or break parts of it. This normally happens to at least one big retailer during Black Friday, but rarely this early.
Last year the Walmart Black Friday Guaranteed in Stock website issues prevented some users from entering their claims on time, but Walmart extended the deadline to accommodate users.

Some of the items listed on the Walmart early bird deals page appear to be priced normally, so make sure you do your homework before you make any purchases — once the website issues are resolved. We tried visiting these pages directly from Walmart’s home page but they did not load through that route either.
