November is officially here, and that means Walmart's Black Friday sale is almost upon us. It's an excellent opportunity to find massive discounts on best-selling items, which include 4K TVs, laptops, appliances, toys, and so much more.

Before we look forward to this year's bargains, we're taking a look back at the best Walmart Black Friday deals of last year. We'll also tell you everything you need to know for this year's sale event, such as when it starts and what items will be on sale, and what prices to expect.

Walmart typically releases an ad scan before the big event, which highlights its best deals in several different categories. The top discounts typically include big-screen 4K TVs, Google Home devices, gaming consoles, popular kitchen appliances, and the hottest toys of the year.

Last year's most popular deals included the Instant Pot pressure cooker, the Google Home Mini, and the Roomba robot vacuum cleaner, to name a few. We've listed all of the top deals from last year below and included the sale price. We're hoping to see some of the items discounted during this year's sale at record-low prices.

What can I expect for Walmart's Black Friday 2019 sale?

While Black Friday doesn't officially start till November 29, Walmart has given us a sneak peek with an 'Early Access Sale' that's happening right now. This gives us an idea of what will be on sale, with deals on 4K TVs, headphones, Google devices, tablets, smartwatches, console bundles and toys that include electric scooters and hoverboards. We can anticipate even bigger price cuts during the Black Friday 2019 sale as well as first-time discounts on newly released items.

TVs are always a hot item during Black Friday, and we expect this year to be no different. We should see massive price cuts on 4K TVs from top brands like Sony, Samsung, LG, and more. Walmart always includes a big-screen TV in their Black Friday ad, so if you need a new TV, you can count on Walmart to deliver a fantastic deal.

We also expect to see the latest iPad and Apple Watch on sale with record-low prices on older models. If you're looking for a new phone, Walmart included a gift card with your purchase last year, so we're hoping to see the same promotion with the iPhone 11 and the Samsung Galaxy S10 smartphone.

As we've mentioned, Walmart will have its Google devices on sale with discounts on the best-selling Google Home speaker and display, and the Nest thermostat and security cameras.

We also predict you'll see discounts on gaming consoles, robot vacuums, laptops, speakers, headphones, and best-selling kitchen appliances like pressure cookers, coffee makers, air fryers, mixers, and more.
