*Walmart 1-hour In Stock Guarantee Problems – UPDATE 11/29/2013* It seems lots of people are having problems registering Walmart 1-hour guarantee cards. If you’re having problems registering Walmart 1-hour In Stock Guarantee cards, check out my newest post about this issue. I’m doing my best to stay on top of it and try to help some of you work through it. Hopefully this matter gets resolved soon! If you were able to resolve your own issue, please let us all know how you did it.

“1-hour In Stock Guarantee” can be found on select items in Walmart’s Black Friday 2013 ad. But, do you know exactly how it works? I was curious myself, so I did a little digging, and here’s what I found out about it.

What is the 1-hour In Stock Guarantee?

The 1-hour In Stock Guarantee at Walmart doesn’t necessarily mean that the item that you want is guaranteed to be physically in stock for an hour. If the stock at a particular store runs out in an hour or less at your store, you can purchase a Guarantee Card at the advertised price in the Walmart Black Friday ad. This ensures that the item will be shipped to your store before Christmas.

Is the 1-hour In Stock Guarantee good on all items?

No. The Walmart 1-hour In Stock Guarantee is only good on certain items. This year (2013), for instance, the 1-hour In Stock Guarantee is good on the iPad Mini, Furby Boom, and Graco Travel System, among others. Anything you see in the Walmart Black Friday ad that has the 1-hour In Stock Guarantee tag on it you will be able to either purchase a Guarantee Card for if they run out of it within one hour from the start of the sale.

When does the 1-hour In Stock Guarantee start?

The first round of Walmart Black Friday sales start on Thanksgiving at 6pm. You will have from 6:00 until 6:59 to purchase either the item you want that’s in the sale or a Guarantee Card. At 7:00 and beyond, you’re out of luck, unless your store hasn’t run out of that item yet. The next round of sales starts at 8pm on Thanksgiving day (2013), and there are also sales on Black Friday as well.

Be sure to browse through the Walmart Black Friday ad to find items with the 1-Hour In Stock Guarantee tag!

What should I do with the Guarantee Card once I get it?

Once you get your Guarantee Card, you must register it online at Walmart.com/1hourguarantee no later than 11:59pm on Sunday, December 1st. (Central time) If you happen to miss this deadline, you will no longer be entitled to receive that particular item. Instead, your Guarantee Card will simply become nothing more than a Walmart gift card, loaded with the amount of money that you paid for the sale item. If you fail to redeem your Guarantee Card, you can also request a full refund.

Does the 1-hour In Stock Guarantee have any exclusions or rules?

Of course! Every big sale has rules that you need to play by. For instance, there is a limit of one guarantee card per person, per item. This means that you can get a Guarantee Card for a Furby and an iPad Mini, but not for two iPad Minis. This offer is also not valid in Alaska, Hawaii, or Puerto Rico.

Don’t forget that Walmart will also be holding an early Black Friday sale on November 22nd! Also, read our tips for saving the most money on Black Friday.
