Walmart's 2014 Black Friday deals are officially out in the wild, and, as is the trend these days, some of the best sales require you to speed to your local store before you've properly digested Thanksgiving dinner. Some pretty impressive savings await you if you're up for the task, though, including big price cuts on tablets, TVs and stacked Xbox One and PS4 bundles.
Just like Black Friday doesn't always kick off on Friday, not every "deal" in Walmart's ad is really a deal. As such, we've hand-picked the items that are worth putting down mom's stuffing for, from late Thanksgiving to early Black Friday.
How Walmart's Sale Works
Walmart organizes its Black Friday sales into three "events" that kick off at specific dates and times. Event 1 starts at 6 p.m. Thursday (Nov. 27), followed by Event 2 at 8 p.m., with all applicable sales running until the end of Nov. 28. Event 3 deals begin at 6 a.m. Friday (Nov. 28) and last all weekend long -- as long as there's still anything left, at least.
Select Black Friday sale items qualify for Walmart's "1-Hour Guarantee," which uses a ticketing system to make sure that anyone who shows up between 6 and 7 p.m. gets the item they intend to purchase. The item is paid for on the spot, and can be taken home immediately or picked up at participating Walmart location before Christmas if supplies are short.
Walmart Cyber Monday
While the below deals are great for tech enthusiasts on a budget, Walmart knows that many shoppers would prefer to score deals from home while still in their PJs rather than brave a busy store. The company has a handful of worthwhile deals on TVs and game consoles as part of its Cyber Monday sale, which kicks off on Monday, Dec. 1. We've hand-picked our favorite deals from the bunch, which you can find here.
