The first wave of holiday deals has arrived. Walmart is taking on Amazon's forthcoming October Prime Day with a deals event of its own. The Walmart Rollbacks Sale is now live and set to run through October 13. Not only has it started a day before Amazon's sale, but it also ends 24 hours later.
Unlike Amazon's sale — which is a Prime member exclusive — the Walmart Rollbacks Sale will be open to the general public. It's unclear if there will be any exclusive deals for Walmart Plus members ($98/year), but members do enjoy free shipping on all purchases with no minimum required.
Walmart's sale event includes sitewide discounts on everything from the newly released Apple Watch 8 to the latest Barbie dollhouses. It's worth noting that none of these events are proper Black Friday deals, but rather early holiday sales designed to get consumers to shop early. Here's everything you need to know about the Walmart Rollback sale. (For more ways to save, make sure to check out our guide to the best Walmart promo codes).

Walmart Rollbacks Sale — best deals now
Apple Watch 8 (41mm/GPS):
$399 $349 @ Walmart (opens in new tab)
The Apple Watch 8 sports a new skin temperature sensor to monitor sleep tracking and cycle tracking. It also comes with new advanced safety features like Crash Detection, which can sense when you've been in a car crash. In our Apple Watch 8 review (opens in new tab), we called it the best smartwatch hands down. It's now $50 off, which is the first major price cut we've seen for this watch.
Chefman TurboFry Dual Basket Air Fryer:
$145 $79 @ Walmart (opens in new tab)
The Chefman 9qt air fryer lets you fry like a pro in your own home. It features two 4.5 quart non-stick baskets, so you can cook fries on one side and wings in the other. There's even an LED reminder that tells you when it's time to give your food a shake (to ensure even cooking) and an auto-shutoff features to avoid overheating.
RCA 55" 4K TV:
$278 $198 @ Walmart (opens in new tab)
A 55-inch 4K TV at this price point isn't unheard of, but it's pretty rare to see (especially outside of any major holidays). This TV features HDR support and a 60Hz panel, which isn't ideal for gaming, but should be good for everyday use if you're on a budget and don't require top-of-the-line performance.
Ecovacs Deebot N8 Plus:
$649 $349 @ Walmart (opens in new tab)
The Ecovacs Deebot N8 Plus is a vacuum cleaner and mop rolled into one. It also automatically empties its dustbin into a hypoallergenic, disposable bag (Auto-Empty Station) for maintenance-free cleaning. It features a 110 minute runtime and returns to its charging dock when its battery is low.
Gateway Ultra Slim Laptop:
$445 $179 @ Walmart (opens in new tab)
This slim laptop promises up to 8.5 hours of battery life, which should be more than enough for even the longest school day. It features a 15.6-inch 1080p IPS LCD, Core i3-1115G4 CPU, 4GB of RAM, and a 128GB SSD. It also includes a laptop sleeve and wireless mouse.
