Walmart Black Friday deals are officially here. Walmart is kicking off its Black Friday deals by rolling back prices on more than 400 toys. The mega-retailer is also taking up to $400 off Vizio P-Series Quantum TVs and discounting Apple's new iPads. It's one of the first major holiday sales we've seen so far in 2019.
To predict what this year's Walmart deals might look like, we're taking a quick peek at some of last year's best Walmart Black Friday deals as well as some of the best Walmart deals of 2019. (And make sure to check out our guide and predictions for this year's best Cyber Monday deals).
When is Black Friday 2019?
Black Friday 2019 is on November 29. However, Walmart Black Friday deals are starting now. Black Friday is no longer a one-day event, but instead encompasses parts of late October, November, and December. And with 2019's shorter holiday season, it's no wonder that Walmart is offering its holiday deals this early.
Walmart Black Friday Toy Deals Start in October
Walmart is kicking off the holidays by rolling back the price of over 400 toys. The rollbacks include price cuts on Barbie, LEGO, LEGO Star Wars, and more. We took a quick glance through some of the sale items and many were indeed aggressive price cuts. For example, this WowWee Baby Shark Puppet is on sale for $14.88, which is $5 off its regular price and $2 cheaper than Amazon's current price.
Of course, you should always price check before buying anything, but this is a great sign of the type of Walmart Black Friday deals we can expect in the coming weeks.
Walmart Black Friday 2019 deals to watch out for
Last year, we saw three outstanding Walmart Black Friday deals that no other retailer came close to matching. Walmart offered two excellent PS4 bundles for $199 and the Samsung Chromebook 3 for just $99. The PS4 bundles were particularly noteworthy because they included popular games like Spider-Man and Red Dead Redemption 2. (Most Black Friday PS4 deals focus on dollar-off discounts or freebies, however, Walmart offered deals that included both).
The Chromebook deal was a bit more complicated as it sold out within minutes. Here in the office, some staff members were able to add the $99 Chromebook to their shopping cart, but shortly after, the Chromebook disappeared from their virtual cart. It was a small blip on Walmart's end, but one that left some shoppers bitter at the fact that they couldn't snag that $99 Chromebook.
Walmart also offered numerous Black Friday TV deals last year. Vizio, Hisense, Sharp, and TCL TVs were all heavily discounted as were Google smart home devices like the Google Home Mini, which sold for 50% off. Those invested in the Google ecosystem should know that Walmart is our go-to store for all Google smart home deals.
Walmart Black Friday deals 2019: predictions
The tech landscape has drastically changed, and a $199 PS4 bundle won't be as impressive this year as it was in 2018. So here are the Walmart Black Friday deals we predict we'll see this holiday season.
Roku fall 2019 lineup: Roku just released its new lineup for 2019 and for a few hours Walmart had the new Roku Ultra 4K on sale for $79 ($20 off). The short-lived deal is a sign of the aggressive discounts we could see on Roku's new streamers in the days to come.
Google gear: Amazon doesn't sell Google smart home devices, so our go-to store for Google gear has been Walmart. Last year, the retailer offered the Google Home Mini for just $24. We predict it'll drop in November to $22 (same price as on Prime Day). Meanwhile, we expect to see the Chromecast for $25, the Google Home Hub for $99 and a Google Smart TV Kit (Chromecast + Home Mini) for $45. As a rule of thumb, whatever sale prices that Amazon offers for its smart home devices, Walmart will match with Google smart home devices.
PS4 console: Walmart offers excellent Black Friday Xbox One deals and Black Friday PS4 deals. This year, we predict Walmart will again offer some $199 PS4 bundles, but they'll also offer more Nintendo Switch bundles and perhaps a modest discount on the new Nintendo Switch Lite. Walmart is also our go-to store for PS4 Pro deals. Sony's premium console hit $350 on Prime Day and $310 around Labor Day. A $299 PS4 Pro is looking more and more realistic. (Especially after Rakuten's killer $305 PS4 Pro deal).
Xbox One X: Walmart has been offering killer Xbox One X deals all year. At the time of this writing, you can get the Xbox One X Fallout Edition for just $399. We've seen better deals, but that's still $100 off. Is a $299 Xbox One X possible on Black Friday? We think it is, but again quantities will be extremely limited.
Apple Watch: The Apple Watch 3 dropped to $169 this past year (on Amazon Prime Day), whereas the base Apple Watch 4 hit an all-time low of $299 on Sept. 16 at Walmart. (Granted, it sold out in a minute). Both watches have been on sale consistently since the start of the year and now that the Apple Watch 4 has been discontinued by Apple, we expect the Series 4 to see the most discounts in November. As a matter of fact, the Apple Watch 3 is on sale at Walmart now for $189 — it's second-lowest price ever.
Walmart Launches Rewards Card
Just in time for Black Friday, Walmart and Capital One are teaming up to offer the Capital One Walmart Rewards Credit Card Program. The program gives consumers access to two different cards: the signature Capital One Walmart Rewards MasterCard and the Walmart Rewards Card.
The co-branded Capital One Walmart Rewards MasterCard gives shoppers 5% back on Walmart purchases (including groceries), 5% back on in-store purchases when using the Walmart Pay app (it drops to 2% after 12 months), 2% back on restaurants and travel, and 1% back everywhere else.
Meanwhile, the private label Walmart Rewards Card gets you 5% back on purchases at Walmart.com and on the Walmart app, 5% back on in-store purchases when using the Walmart Pay app (it drops to 2% after 12 months), and 2% back at Walmart Fuel Stations.
The cards are on par with offers you get from stores like Amazon, Target, and Best Buy. The Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card, for instance, gets you 5% back on Amazon and Whole Foods purchases. (You also get a $70 Amazon gift card upon approval).
