This is the TV I want to buy this holiday season. It’s currently on sale in all sizes. The 42-inch model is on sale for $996, whereas the 55-inch is on sale for $1,296. We named it one of the best TVs of 2022 with fantastic picture quality and overall performance. Heads up, Walmart isn’t the only retailer offering this deal. (You’ll also find it Amazon and Best Buy). Nevertheless, it’s a killer deal on one of the top TVs of the year.

There are plenty of excellent Walmart Black Friday deals on MacBooks and powerful gaming laptops, but there are also savings to be had on entry-level machines. For example, this Samsung Chromebook 4 is currently on sale for $139 at Walmart (opens in new tab).  

As you’d probably expect considering the price it’s no powerhouse laptop, but it’ll do the basics well and that makes it a great cheap pick for at home learning or everyday tasks. It packs a 11.6-inch HD display, Intel Celeron N4020 processor, 32GB SSD and runs the popular Chrome OS. Samsung also claims this Chromebook offers “military-grade durability” which should make it well suited for even younger users.

Fitbit Black Friday deals

If you’re a newcomer to the world of smartwatches, Walmart has an excellent Black Friday deal on the Fitbit Versa 2 that is a great way to try out fitness tracking tech without breaking the bank. 

Right now, the Fitbit Versa 2 is on sale for $99 at Walmart (opens in new tab). That’s a $50 saving compared to its regular list price of $149. And it’s also the lowest price we’ve ever spotted for the wearable. 

While the Fitbit Versa 2 has since been eclipsed by the Fitbit Versa 3, it’s still a worthwhile smartwatch, especially at this low price. It offers an attractive design that mimics the look of an Apple Watch, a solid battery life, sleep tracking and customizable training programs (although you will need a Fitbit subscription for that feature). It’s no longer the flagship model, but it’s great entry-level device for first time smartwatch users.

We’ve already seen some great Black Friday deals on headphones and earbuds at Walmart. Well, continuing the trend, Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 are currently $30 off, representing a 20% discount. 

In our Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 review, we weren’t that keen on the battery life, call quality or less-than-premium design of these earbuds. So if those things matter most to you, it might be best to scroll down and check out the other Walmart headphones deals we’ve covered previously on this blog. However, we loved the sound quality of the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2, as well as the strong active noise cancellation and in-ear comfort, especially considering their affordable price even before this deal. So, if it’s audio fidelity and ANC you value most, or you wear your earbuds all day and need them to be comfortable, these headphones are a great choice.

Pete Wolinski here, How To and Cameras editor at Tom’s Guide and an avid PC gamer, taking over the Walmart Black Friday Live blog for the next few hours. Let’s kick things off with one of our favorite Walmart deals from yesterday which is still going today! This LG 32″ QHD Gaming monitor is still on offer at $150 off its usual price. You’ll want to snap this one up before stocks get low, as while it didn’t make our list of the best gaming monitors in 2022, it still offers impressive specs for the money — notably a 165Hz refresh rate for buttery smooth gameplay versus a 60Hz monitor.

Walmart’s early Black Friday deals are good for anyone looking to buy a cheaper TV, with all sorts of discounts to be had. For example, you can get a large 75-inch 4K TV for under $500. 

This 75-inch Hisense 4K TV is on sale for just $448. It runs Roku TV OS for easy access to all your favorite streaming services. Plus, this set supports HDR, voice control via Google Assistant or Alexa and a dedicated Game Mode for reduced input lag when playing video games.

In the market for some new earbuds? If you’re an Apple device owner, good news: Apple’s 1st generation AirPods Pro are on sale at Walmart right now for roughly $55 off.

Sure, the AirPods Pro 2 were unveiled at the September 2022 Apple Event, but the existing AirPods Pro are still great and should serve you well. In our original Apple AirPods Pro review we loved the excellent sound quality and high-quality noise cancelling tech, and though the battery life could be longer this pair does come with a charging case to help you stay gassed up on the go.

It’s past 7 PM ET, and you know what that means: Walmart’s Deals for Days discounts are now available to everyone, no Walmart Plus membership required.

If you’re in the market for a new gaming laptop, Walmart’s got a great deal going that knocks a little over $200 off the price of a new 16-inch Lenovo Legion 5 Pro. It ships with a cutting-edge Intel 12th Gen CPU, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Ti GPU, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD, which is more than enough muscle to run most games quite well on the laptop’s 16-inch WQXGA (2,560 x 1,600 pixels) 240Hz display.  

In our Lenovo Legion 5 Pro review we lauded last year’s model of this slick Windows 11 gaming laptop for delivering plenty of power and a great display in an understated aesthetic. We were a little less impressed by the keyboard and speakers, but you can always plug in one of the best gaming keyboards and best gaming headsets if you want an upgrade!

We’re roughly an hour away from the (second) start to the Walmart Deals for Days event. Starting at 7 p.m. ET, everyone will have access to Walmart’s deals. (No Walmart Plus membership will be required). So what deals are left and what are we looking forward to? Above is a quick list of the deals we’re most excited about this evening. Remember, there will be another Deals for Days event on Monday, November 14 and Monday, November 21. (Though keep in mind it’s not guaranteed these deals will be available again). 

JBL Flip 4

November is turning out to be a pretty balmy month. While you’re probably not gonna rush to the beach anytime soon, Walmart has the JBL Flip 4 Speaker on sale for just $59. In our JBL Flip 4 review, we called the Editor’s Choice Bluetooth speaker the sub-$100 speaker king. It offers excellent bass/treble/mid-tones for its size and epic battery life that lasts for over 12 hours. By comparison, Amazon has it for $79 (opens in new tab).

LG UltraGear monitor

Here’s a solid deal for any PC gamers out there. Walmart has the LG 32-inch UltraGear QHD Monitor on sale for $200! The monitor sports a 165Hz refresh rate, HDR10 support, and a 2560 x 1440 resolution. It also has a near bezel-free design, so it’ll fit it with any modern desktop. By compraison, Best Buy has it for $399 (opens in new tab).

Apple Watch 7 deal

Here’s a solid deal that doesn’t require Walmart Plus membership. Right now you can get the Apple Watch 7 (LTE/41mm) on sale for just $329. That’s the lowest price we’ve ever seen for this model. (It’s $20 cheaper than its previous price low). It’s no longer Apple’s flagship, but the Apple Watch 7 is still a solid smartwatch. It features a bright display, IPX6 certification, and up to 33% faster charging than its predecessor. Keep in mind this is the LTE model, which means you’ll need a wireless plan if you want to use its cellular features. 

Acer Chromebook 315

There are a lot of cheap laptops/Chromebooks on sale at Walmart right now. If you’re looking for the utmost cheapest one around, the HP 11-inch Chromebook is on sale for $79. Just keep in mind that you’re limited to an 11.6-inch 1366 x 768 LCD, AMD A4 CPU, 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage. That’s fine for young kids, but might be a tad underpowered for day-to-day tasks.

A better pick could be the Acer 17-inch Chromebook. It has a 17.3-inch 1080p LCD, Celeron N4500 CPU, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB eMMC. It’s not gonna break any speed records, but you get a bigger (1080p) display, which should at least make Web surfing a more pleasurable experience. 

Keurig K-Express

There are a lot of coffee machines on sale right now. However, if you’re looking for a basic, single-serve machine, you’ll be hard-pressed to find anything cheaper than this. Walmart has the Keurig K-Express Essentials on sale for $35. This is great if you live by yourself, in a dorm room, or if you’re an occasional coffee drinker. It features a 36-ounce reservoir and it allows for back-to-back brewing, which means you don’t have to wait for your brewer to reheat before brewing a second cup. By comparison, Amazon has it on sale for $75 (opens in new tab).

If you want something for a bigger household, Walmart also has the Ninja CM300 Hot & Cold Coffee System on sale for $99 (opens in new tab). This Ninja machine isn’t pod-based, which means you can choose whatever coffee you like. (I own the Ninja CE251 and absolutely love it. The CM300 is a fancier version of the model I have). 

Google Chromecast w Eleven

I have a small confession to make. I’ve yet to see the latest season of Stranger Things. It’s been on my to-do list since it debuted, but I just never got around to it. (I blame Love is Blind for hogging up all my time). Anyways, I think this deal is pretty cool. You get Chromecast with Google TV and a Funko Pop! Stranger Things Eleven figure for just $39. If you don’t care for the Funko Pop! figure, you can get the standalone streamer for just $18 (opens in new tab). Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m eagerly awaiting the last episodes of LIB which should come out this week!

And we’re officially live!  Walmart Plus members can now shop the first batch of Walmart Black Friday deals. I’ve highlighted a few of my personal favorite deals above. Remember to sign into your Walmart Plus account to shop. (It’s also worth calling out that you have to be a paying member to shop the deals. If you’re currently on a free trial, you must forgo it to get access to the deals). You can sign up for Walmart Plus here (opens in new tab).

TCL 50

It’s almost time! Hey, everyone! Deals editor Louis here guiding you through today’s Walmart Deals for Days event. So here’s a quick recap on where we stand — Walmart’s first batch of Black Friday deals begins at 12 p.m. ET today (for Walmart Plus members) or 7 p.m. ET (for everyone else). 

Walmart will release new deals every Monday through the week of Thanksgiving. There are a lot of juicy deals that will go live today, but here’s one that I think will sell out fast. Walmart will have the TCL 55-inch 4K Roku TV on sale for $188. That’s one of the least expensive big-screen 4K TVs we’ve seen so far this year. Reminder — the sale will go live at 12 p.m. ET for Walmart Plus members. 

Onn QLED 4K Roku TV

Onn is Walmart’s in-house brand of electronics. As part of its early Black Friday sales, Walmart has the Onn 65-inch QLED 4K TV on sale for $398. That’s one of the least-expensive QLED TVs we’ve seen. The TV features 60 local dimming zones, Dolby Vision support, Dolby Atmos audio, and four HDMI ports. It also uses Roku’s streaming platform, which is our favorite. If you want a big-screen TV on a budget, this is as cheap as QLEDs come. 

AirPods Pro 2 with deal tag

The AirPods Pro 2 are brand new but they’re already seeing a discount on Walmart. Right now you can grab one of the best wireless earbuds for just $234, which is $15 off the regular price and ties the lowest price we’ve seen yet.

In our AirPods Pro 2 review we gave these earbuds 4.5 out of 5 stars and an Editors’ Choice award because of all of the improvements. This includes 2x better noise cancelation, new volume controls in the stems and longer battery life. Plus, you can use the iPhone’s TrueDepth camera to create a personalized spatial audio to listen to some of the best Dolby Atmos sound in any pair of earbuds. 

Beats Studio Buds deal

The best Black Friday deals won’t arrive at Walmart until 12 p.m. ET (for Walmart Plus members, 7 p.m. for everyone) but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t still several deals worth shopping right now. 

Case in point, the Beats Earbuds are on sale for $99 at Walmart (opens in new tab). That’s a $50 saving compared to its $150 full retail price. This is an excellent deal on a top-quality set of AirPods alternatives, and you don’t need to be a Walmart Plus member to score this deal. 

In our Beats Studio Buds review, we labeled it a “surprisingly affordable” option and that was before Walmart slashed the price by $50. We particularly liked the compact design, strong active noise cancellation (a feature reserved for the pricey AirPods Pro) and IPX4 water and sweat resistance. The mediocre call quality and inability to easily switch multiple devices do hold the Beats Studio Buds back somewhat but are far from a deal breaker.  

Apple Watch SE

If you’re looking for a deal you can shop now, Walmart has the Apple Watch SE 2020 (GPS/40mm) on sale for $199. That’s $50 cheaper than the Apple Store’s price and the second-best price we’ve seen for this watch. Despite being a generation old, the 2020 Apple Watch SE is still a great budget smartwatch. Just keep in mind it hit $188 last month, so there’s a chance it could get cheaper in the coming days. But if you can’t afford to wait — this is a solid value. 

Hisense Roku TV

One of the flagship deals in Walmart’s Deals for Days event is this massive 75-inch Hisense 4K Roku TV, which will be on sale for just $448. It’s not only the cheapest 75-inch TV we’ve seen this year, but we like it because unlike other budget big-screen TVs, this model is powered by the Roku platform, which is our favorite when it comes to streaming. You also get Dolby Vision/HDR support, DTS Studio Sound, and a modern bezel-less design. Remember, this is a budget TV, so you probably won’t get the best picture quality out there. Nevertheless, it’s as cheap as big TVs get.
