With the slogan, “Save Money. Live Better,” Walmart is no stranger to the world of great deals and sales. So, it should come as no surprise that the superstore leads the pack in Black Friday bargains.
Walmart decided to help stoke the hype, releasing their Black Friday ad on Nov. 9 to much fanfare. To help you get your shopping list ready, GOBankingRates gathered some of the best Walmart Black Friday deals fresh from the pages of the ad to help you prepare. Whether you plan to shop at Walmart online, in the store or through the mobile app, read on so you can grab Walmart’s latest and greatest deals.
1. Hatchimals Golden Lynx Egg
Regular Price: $69.99
Sale Price: $49.88
Arguably the Tickle Me Elmo of this generation, Hatchimals are bound to be just as popular this year as they were last holiday season. The stuffed animals arrive in battery-powered eggs, and only after they “hatch” do you find out what’s hiding inside. This year, Walmart unveiled its special Hatchimal — the Golden Lynx Egg. With a savings of over $20, don’t sit on this deal too long — it’s a Walmart exclusive, too.

2. Night Owl 4-Camera HD Security System Kit
Regular Price: $445.75
Sale Price: $150
Thanks to the recent unveiling of Amazon’s Cloud Cam — which will support the new Amazon Key program — this has become the year of the home security system. Both the Night Owl package as well as the Cloud Cam boast 1080p HD viewing and night vision capabilities, along with a built-in microphone and speaker. Also, Amazon’s Cloud Cam retails for $120, and Walmart set the bar by offering a four-pack for just $30 more.
3. Samsung 58″ Class 4K (2160P) Smart LED TV
Regular Price: $799.99
Sale Price: $598
TVs are among the most popular Black Friday buys, and Walmart TV deals are often hard to beat. Although there will surely be plenty of sales on TVs of all sizes and types, the 4K smart TVs are likely to be some of the best bargains. This particular Samsung model is already a bestseller, so it’s likely to garner quite a bit of attention during the holidays. A similar TV deal last year offered savings of $400 on a 65-inch 4K model, so it wasn’t a shock there would be a comparable Black Friday savings this year.
4. HP Stream Laptop
Regular Price: $219
Sale Price: $179
Do you live a life on the go? Walmart’s Black Friday deals offer a solution so you can stream — wherever you happen to be. Touted as one of the most compact laptops of its kind, the HP Stream sees itself atop the list of coveted Black Friday deals, sporting a $179 price tag. Coming complete with a 14″ screen, Windows 10 and a 1-year subscription to Microsoft Office 365 — consider this quite the steal. Plus, its super-thin construction makes it a great gift for frequent travelers or students of all ages.
5. Google Home
Regular Price: $129
Sale Price: $79, plus a $25 shopping offer
Again, Walmart will be competing with Amazon in the voice assistant category. Amazon’s Echo Dot has recently been outselling the comparable Google Home device — likely because of the former’s $49.99 price tag — so Walmart’s offering a competitive price on the Home to entice shoppers. In 2016, Walmart offered 30 percent off the Google Chromecast device on Black Friday, so you might see a similar discount on this device, as well.

6. Huffy Sea Star or Rock It 20″ Bike
Regular Price: $49.97
Sale Price: $34
Last year, Walmart dedicated two full pages in its Black Friday ad to bicycles, trucks, trikes, scooters and similar toys. One of the most popular kids’ toys of all time is still the classic bicycle — and Walmart delivered in the form of the Huffy 20” in the “Sea Star” and “Rock It” models. These bikes offer an adjustable seat for growing kids and a single-speed pedal brake, and will cost just $34 when the Black Friday sale starts on Thursday evening.

7. iPhones and Galaxies
Regular Prices: $699 to $949 and $999 to $1,149, respectively
Sale Price: $0 down, plus a $300 Walmart Gift Card offer
Apple released two highly anticipated iPhone models this year, just in time for Black Friday shopping. In 2016, Walmart offered qualifying iPhones for $0 down, plus a $250 gift card for qualifying customers. This year, they’re upping the ante to $300 — and including Samsung this time. This deal is offered to any qualified buyer looking to upgrade within Verizon’s Device Payment Deal or AT&T’s Next program.

8. Fitbit Charge 2 Activity Tracker + Heart Rate Bundle
Regular Price: $148.95
Sale Price: $99
Last year, shoppers saw a $20 discount on the Fitbit Charge 2, along with $30 off the Alta and Flex 2 models. Despite holiday discounts, Fitbit saw less-than-stellar sales last year, as the hype surrounding the fitness trackers seems to have died down. You can expect a slightly higher discount this year to compensate for the drop in sales. As with last year, you’ll likely see discounts on Fitbit’s other models on Black Friday, too.
9. Copper Chef — 7 Piece Set
Regular Price: $83.93
Sale Price: $49
Walmart is nothing if not reliable. On the past three Black Fridays, the retailer offered a reliable, multi-piece cookware set for a special price of $49. This year, they opted to go copper — featuring the Copper Chef cookware set, with seven pieces to go around. The set features Cerami-Tech nonstick technology and is safe for all types of cooking equipment — plus, it includes pots, pans and even a frying rack. It’s a great gift for someone living on his own for the first time or anyone needing a kitchen upgrade.
10. Brother Electronic Sewing Machine
Regular Price: $175
Sale Price: $89.97

In addition to high-quality gaming, it offers one whole terabyte of storage for gaming, movies and more — plus, it makes for a mean Blu-ray player.
15. Black & Decker B D Airswivel Lite
Regular Price: $48
Sale Price: $28
For the past three years, Walmart has offered great discounts on vacuums. This year, one of the best deals promises to be the Black & Decker B D Airswivel Lite. Coming in at an easy $28, the bagless, easy-swivel tool weighs only 8 pounds — making it extremely easy to maneuver around the house. Said to be suitable for both hardwood and carpeting, you can enjoy superior cleaning after those holiday parties for a fraction of the cost.
