Walmart revealed its full list of Black Friday deals for 2018 on Thursday, and we've been combing through it ever since to highlight some of the best deals (scroll down). The world's biggest retailer is coming out swinging. Countering a slew of deals from Target, Best Buy, Costco and Amazon, Walmart's deals start earlier than ever, and include in-store coffee service and other niceties.
While Walmart's store event kicks off at 6 p.m. local time on Thanksgiving, online deals start at 10 p.m. Eastern Time (7 p.m. PT) on Wednesday, Nov. 21. Prices are valid through Friday, Nov. 23 while supplies last. That means you'll be able to get these deals without having to visit a Walmart store.
A few notes to keep in mind:
This is an insane price on a big TV with Roku, the best smart TV system CNET has ever tested. Walmart's ad says the TV is either the TCL 65S4 or the Sharp LC‑65Q7300U. We haven't reviewed either model directly, but the specifications look similar to the S405 we reviewed in 2017 (pictured), which costs roughly $350 more at 65 inches.Read CNET's S405 review
Neither have we reviewed this Hisense (model 40EU3000), but we're guessing its image quality is on the bottom end of "acceptable," at best. But this is the lowest price we've ever seen for a 40-inch TV. Just last year we were excited about 32-inch TVs for $99. Insanity.
Who wouldn't want an arcade machine in their house?
It's only $50 off, but $249 isn't too bad for Galaga! And Walmart had the exclusive on this Pac-Man machine, for some reason.
The highest-end Roku improves on our favorite 4K streamer, the Streaming Stick Plus, with a headphone jack on the remote, a remote finder and, new for 2018, JBL headphones, a $30 value. This price is also available at Target and elsewhere, but Walmart throws in a $35 credit for Sling TV, a $5 Vudu credit and one free month of Showtime, an $11 value, to get you to buy it there.
