I've been covering Black Friday for 15 years. While I'd normally advise on waiting till Black Friday proper, 2023 is shaping up to be very different. Deals started strong and fierce last month and retailers like Walmart aren't holding back. That's not to say every deal is worth your time, but there are some very good bargains to be had right now, if you know where to look.
On this page I'm rounding up the best early Walmart Black Friday sales you can shop this weekend. Before listing any deal, I'll cross check prices against competing retailers like Amazon, Target, and Best Buy. I'll also track each item's price history and call out when I think a price could get cheaper.
As a reminder, the next major release will happen on Wednesday, November 15. Otherwise, here are the best sales live right now. For more ways to save this week, make sure to check our guide to the best Walmart promo codes.

Walmart's massive Crocs sale is continuing through the weekend. As part of the sale, Walmart is knocking up to 50% off select men's, women's, and children's Crocs. After discount, deal prices start from $9. The sale includes all-terrain clogs, slip-resistant clogs, sandals, and more.

Sony WF-C500 was $99 now $29 @ Walmart
The WF-C500 are among the best wireless earbuds under $100 we've tested. Priced at $29, they're the cheapest we've ever seen them. There's no ANC, but our review said that music sounds punchy, and there's full EQ control via the awesome Sony Connect Headphones app. Battery life runs to 10 hours, with 20 hours from the charging case. This is the lowest on these four-star wireless earbuds and a best-ever deal.
Keurig K-Express Essentials Single Serve Coffee Maker: was $59 now $35 @ Walmart
If you want an affordable K-Cup pod coffee maker in a compact package, this deal is great for you. This coffee maker features a 36-oz. reservoir and can brew back-to-back coffee, so everyone can get their caffeine hit fast. This is the cheapest it's ever been.
Artificial Christmas Trees: deals from $39 @ Walmart
It's time to deck the halls! Walmart has a wide range of Christmas trees on sale from $39. The sale includes small pre-lit trees (a la Charlie Brown) as well as taller fully decorated trees. It's one of the biggest sales we've seen from any retailer. Note that Amazon has a similar sale with deals from $21, but their trees start at smaller sizes.
Price check: deals from $21 @ Amazon
Google Nest Hub (2nd gen): was $99 now $59 @ Walmart
The second-gen Google Nest Hub features a 7-inch smart display and built-in speakers. This device also offers sleep tracking and support for some of the best streaming services out there, including Netflix, Disney Plus, Hulu and more. In our Google Nest Hub 2nd Gen review, we said its sleep sensing abilities, improved smart home UI, and refreshed design make it one of the best smart displays for your bedside. Note that it did hit $39 last year, but that deal sold out fast.
Price check: $59 @ Best Buy

The 10.2-inch iPad features Apple's A13 Bionic CPU, a 12MP front camera, and 64GB of storage (instead of 32GB like its predecessor). You also get support for Center Stage, which uses machine learning to adjust the front-facing camera during FaceTime video calls. In our iPad 10.2-inch review, we called it a solid tablet with a great screen, smooth performance, and good battery life for a reasonable price. It's an all-time price low right now.

Allswell Brick Mattress: was $399 now $297 @ Walmart
Rest assured that sleeping on this Brick won't destroy your back. In fact, we list this bed in our best firm mattress 2023 guide. We called it the best affordable firm mattress for combi sleepers on a budget. If you're not familiar with Allswell, the company is backed by Walmart. The mattresses are now exclusively sold at Walmart.com and since then, they're not on sale as often as they used to be when sold via Allswell Home, which makes this a rare deal. After discount you can get the twin for $297 (was $399) or the queen for $427 (was $549).
Shark Cordless Vacuum Detect Pro: was $449 now $369 @ Walmart
I've been using the Shark Cordless Vacuum Detect Pro for a few weeks and it does an excellent job of picking up dust, hair, and debris from carpeting and hardwood floors. I like that the cordless vacuum is light and easy to maneuver. Additionally, it has an auto mode that automatically increases the suction power when vacuuming carpets or difficult to reach areas. The vacuum also has a HEPA filter to trap allergens and dust inside of the unit.

This bundle comes with the original PS5 model rather than the Slim.
