Walmart's Black Friday ad has just dropped, and it reveals all the upcoming deals on gifts for the family this holiday season (or gifts for yourself). There are also a few early bird deals kicking off today so you can get a headstart your Black Friday savings already with items like 4K TVs, laptops, tablets, and more included. Throughout Black Friday week — from November 21 for Walmart — there will be hundreds more discounts to take advantage of.
Deals Worth Considering
Roku Ultra with JBL headphones: $48
Streaming media hardware is becoming more and more important, and Roku's lineup is some of the best out there. The Ultra is one of the top models from the company, and at this price it's basically more affordable than most of the entry-level hardware. It offers 4K streaming, a bonus $5 VUDU credit, a $35 Sling credit, and it even comes with a pair of JBL headphones that you can plug into the remote for a quiet listening experience.
Vizio 60-inch D-Series 4K Smart TV: $498
Vizio TVs are already great value for your money, but especially so with $100 off for Black Friday. This 60-inch model offers 4K resolution, HDR support built-in Chromecast and Google Assistant, and access to all the streaming apps you know and love via its Smart TV interface.
Instant Pot 8‑Qt. Pressure Cooker: $59
Instant Pot's are always super popular because of their range of functionality and ease of use. This 6-in-1 Instant Pot Lux has an 8-quart capacity and can work as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, steamer, rice cooker, and much more. It is $40 off for Black Friday and can replace a bunch of your existing kitchen gadgets.
Other Deals to keep an eye on
Walmart's ad actually brings a number of deals that you'll want to consider. It's one of the better ones we've seen this year, and some of the other standouts include:
- Google Home Hub - $99
- Fitbit Versa - $149
- PS4 Slim 1TB Spiderman Bundle - $199
- Linksys Velop Tri-Band Mesh Wi-Fi System - $199
- Nintendo Switch Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Bundle - $299
Deals or benefits
There's no word in Walmart's announcement about any guaranteed inventory, although there is mention of "more inventory" this year. There's also no mention of free shipping, but it's possible that Walmart will want to match Best Buy, Target, and Amazon by offering it for Black Friday shoppers with no minimum spend.
Deals Worth Ignoring
There are a number of discounts in Walmart's Entertainment category that you shouldn't worry about passing by, including budget Bluetooth speakers and tablets and a bunch of video games and Blu-rays. You may find a deal or two in here, but they aren't exclusive to Walmart and often get discounted throughout the year or have better offers elsewhere this Black Friday.
There are also a few contract-free smartphone offers, but the devices included are far from cutting edge. You should be completely safe avoiding the following "deals":
- RCA Android Tablet: $28
- iPhone 6s Plus on Straight Talk: $299
- Instax Mini 7S: $55
- Sony XB20 Bluetooth Speaker: $50
Walmart's Black Friday deals kick off on November 21 at 10PM ET online. That's two hours earlier than ever so you can start saving sooner, with in-store events beginning on November 22 at 4PM local time with a "Light Up Black Friday" party and free coffee and cookies. A few Special Buy items are only available in store, so check out the sales early online and hit the stores if you need to.
A select few items are available online at their Black Friday prices right now, including 4K TVs from Sharp, Dell laptops, Samsung tablets, and more.
