Walmart Black Friday and Cyber Monday: deals are starting to appear


Walmart is set to be one of the biggest retailers playing in the Black Friday and Cyber Monday game in 2018, and if you don't want to have to step foot inside any of the stores, we've got you covered here.

We're expecting some great deals on things like 4K TVs, laptops and gaming bundles - and we're already seeing some great choices rolling through. The Walmart Black Friday ad scans have come in, and we've seen some excellent options appear already.

The deals are split into two categories: those that are currently live on the site (but you have to wait for them to become active before you can add them to your cart) or those that can still be bought at a higher price... but you know they're coming down.

Walmart Black Friday deals: the best early deals we've seen

Now that the ad scan is out, these are our top deals that we've see so far - although the full list is available on our dedicated page.

PS4 1TB and Spiderman bundle - only $199
If you want a good deal on a PS4 -  especially one that's got 1TB of storage, and one of the best games of the year - this is a stellar deal that's far cheaper than anything we've seen this early on.

HP Pavilion 15.6, Intel Core i5 - $599
If you're looking for a laptop that doesn't bring the added grunt of the HP Pavilion Gaming 15.6, then the 15-CX0056WM is a choice that still offers plenty of spec and a decent amount of RAM too.

Samsung 11.6-inch Chromebook 3 - $179.99 now $99.99
One of the top deals last year, the Samsung Chromebook 3 with 4GB of RAM and an Intel Celeron N3060 processor is even cheaper this year - it's not the most powerful by a long way, but for basic stuff it's a very cheap choice.

Samsung 75-inch Class 4K Ultra HD TV - $4,199 now $1,997
For more than half off the sticker price, you can snag Samsung's colossal 75-inch TV, which is great for anyone who needs a giant screen in 4K. With 2160p resolution and a 240hz refresh rate, Dolby Digital Plus sound and Samsung's smart TV system (with Bixby, if you wanted it), this is a solid pick.

Lenovo Tab E7, 7-inch Android tablet - $99 now $59
Lenovo recently introduced the Tab E7 as part of a group of new low-cost tablets and it's already getting discounted. You won't be able to do anything fancy or graphically-intensive, so don't expect it to handle gaming terribly well. But if you just want an extra device to surf the web, read ebooks or stream some content, try out the Tab E7.

When to get Walmart Black Friday / Cyber Monday deals

Sure, Black Friday starts on November 23, and Cyber Monday begins on November 26, but Walmart is always way more eager than that. They start reducing prices well in advance of these dates. You may even find things cheaper than ever today.

The Black Friday sale has been unveiled, in terms of what to expect, so we're expecting things to stay pretty locked in until November 16, but it's the things not in the ad that we think are worth keeping an eye on.

How to get the best deals at Walmart on Black Friday / Cyber Monday

Rollback prices aren't hard to find, but seeking out the best items amongst all of the stuff Walmart sells is a difficult process. That's why we're here to help. We'll be tracking Walmart deals like NORAD tracks Santa's reindeer every Christmas. You're going to find the best prices here between November and the end of 2018.

For us, the key tell at Walmart is the Black Friday ad scan, which outline every major sale. These fliers spill the beans on top tech products and the discounts that will accompany them on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Between our tracking and outing the Black Friday ads, you're going to be set when it comes to discovering filtered deals until Cyber Monday and beyond. 

5 best deals at Walmart last year

Walmart ruled Black Friday and Cyber Monday last year with deals that you couldn't get elsewhere. This includes everything from smart speaker to huge, big-screen TVs.

1. Google Home Mini + $10 gift card now $29 (was $49)
Walmart had the best Google Home Mini deal around by combining a speaker discount with a $10 gift card. Not even Amazon could beat this deal with its smart speaker - and we're going to get something similar this year.View Deal

2. $79 for Google Home (was $129)
39% off the Google Home speaker is no joke. This Black Friday deal is the best we've seen, and it was available through Jet, the newer retailer owned by Walmart, as a temporary price cut. View Deal

3. The $189 40-inch HDTV deal
You don't always need a 4KTV, so if a Full HD 1080p television is what you're after, you could go home with one as cheap as $189 thanks to this early Walmart Black Friday deal.View Deal

4. Vizio 55-inch 4K TV is just $398
Televisions from Vizio have long been affordable, and it's now discounting 4K TVs for under $400. That's why we were highlighting this Black Friday deal that was $150 off.View Deal

5. Save $50 on PS4 Pro 1TB at Walmart
Sony's extra powerful console won't cost you extra if you go with this deal for $50 off. You could just pay $349 and use the left over cash to buy games.View Deal

Reasons to choose or avoid Walmart

Walmart is the best store to find some of the cheapest prices and even exclusive discounts. It's also the one place you can find create your own console bundle options. We haven't seen too manys otres in the US venture out on this path.

Of course, it doesn't always have the best prices and can't compete with some of its online-only rivals. That's why Jet exists, with Walmart as its owner.
