Walmart's Black Friday advertisements and promotions have seen a lot of innovation and garnered a lot of excitement over the last few years. They follow the trend of opening on Thanksgiving instead of Black Friday, but have also experimented with 1 hour in stock guarantees and tiered Black Friday events that had doorbusters dropping at different times throughout the day. All of that craziness (except for opening on Thanksgiving) appears to be a thing of the past, as Walmart has ditched those antics and stuck to what they do best: living up to their expectation of having some of the best doorbusters on Black Friday. We've combed through their 36 page ad and picked what we feel are the 10 best deals found within.
1. Philips 55" 4K UHD Smart TV - $298.00
2. PlayStation 4 Slim Uncharted Bundle w/ $30 Gift Card - $249.00
3. Samsung Galaxy Tab E Lite with $10 Google Play Card - $69.00
4. 40" Element or Hisense 1080p HDTV - $125.00
Shoppers who couldn't care less about 4K and are instead looking to grab a hot deal on a 1080p set should set their sights on their local Walmart. Depending on your store, you'll find either an Element or Hisense brand 40" 1080p HDTV for only $125.00, each featuring 3 HDMI ports. This is one of the best deals on an HDTV of this size this Black Friday, so expect to leave (or never sit down at) that Thanksgiving dinner table to be in line for this deal when Walmart opens their doors at 6pm Thursday.
5. HP 15.6" AMD-A10 Touchscreen Laptop Bundle (15-ba051wm) - $349.00
Walmart has one of the best all-around deals on a well-equipped laptop on page 8 of their Black Friday ad. Sure, there are less expensive laptops on Black Friday, some on the very same page, but it's hard to get better bang for your buck than this 15.6" touchscreen, quad-core AMD A10 laptop with 8GB RAM and a 1TB hard drive for $349.00, especially when you consider the extras found in this bundle. The loved one on your shopping list will not only have a laptop with RAM and storage to spare, but they'll get a protective sleeve, wireless mouse, and a 16GB flash drive to get them started.
6. Polaroid Instant Digital Camera Bundle - $84.00
7. Assorted Small Kitchen Appliance Deals - $9.76
Despite being 4 cents higher than last year's deal, the assortment of small kitchen appliances found in Walmart's ad deserves a bit of attention. As we detailed in our Dark Horse Deals articles, small appliances and kitchenware are some of the best overall deals you can find on Black Friday. For under $10.00, you can take home a blender, griddle, electric skillet, fryer, slow cooker, or coffee maker from trusted brands like Black and Decker and Faberware. You can also grab an assortment of kitchen items from Better Homes and Gardens for the same price, which includes kitchen necessities like strainers, measuring cups, measuring spoons, and more.
8. Vizio 60"1080p HDTV (D60N-E3) - $398.00
9. Hatchimals – Burtle Walmart Exclusive - $48.88
10. Blu-Ray and DVD Deals
Year in and year out, Blu-ray and DVD deals are some of the best bargains to be found on Black Friday, and this year Walmart as a wide selection to help you fill out stockings or your own theater collection. For under $10, you can grab some of 2016's biggest hits on Blu-ray such as Independence Day Resurgence, Ghostbusters, 13 Hours, Deadpool, 10 Cloverfield Lane (Staff Rating 5/5 stars), or Captain America Civil War. If you're trying to catch up on seasons of your favorite television series, the same $9.96 can get you full seasons of Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Empire, Gotham, or Orange is the New Black. These, of course, are just a smattering of the wide selection available, so check out pages 5 and 6 of the Walmart ad to see feature deals on your favorite titles.
