Walmart Black Friday sale: Best deals for 2020
The latest and arguably the best round of Black Friday deals at Walmart went live at 7 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Nov. 25 — and the sale continues through Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday itself.
The sale kicks off exclusively online, so there’s no need to battle the crowds at physical stores for great deals. Simply fill your virtual shopping cart (before things sell out) to get deep discounts on items like smart TVs, video games, robot vacuums, Razor electric scooters, Beats headphones and Fitbits, plus the lowest price we’ve ever seen Apple Airpods Pro.
It’s been a wild season so far for Black Friday sales, which as we’ve seen are no longer limited to the Friday after Thanksgiving. This year, Walmart and other retailers are ramping up holiday sales for a much longer period than usual and focusing on online deals. You can probably guess the reason for these two moves: As the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage, stores want to avoid drawing massive in-person crowds.
The holiday shopping season unofficially kicked off in mid-October, with a flurry of deals from Amazon and competing retailers during the postponement Prime Day Event. Walmart, among others, followed by launching the first in a series of Black Friday “Deals for Days” sales November 4. Walmart’s home stretch of sales is slated for Thanksgiving week, with new deals available online from Wednesday, November 25.
Walmart’s previous Black Friday sales featured a super bargain $148 55-inch Roku smart TV and the lowest price we have ever seen Regular AirPods ($99). Walmart’s most telling upcoming deal has to be the Apple AirPods Pro headphones for $169. They are the consensus choice for best headphones you can buy, and a pair normally sells for $249. the lowest price before for a set of AirPods Pro was $194.
It should also be noted that the three most requested video game consoles — PlayStation 5, Xbox series Xand Nintendo Switch (with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe) — should be available from Walmart and other retailers during Black Friday week, though shoppers shouldn’t expect any discounts. (Popular game consoles have been sold out for most of 2020 because COVID-19 has dramatically increased demand, and retailers and manufacturers clearly feel that the new systems will sell very well even if they are at full price.)
[UPDATE: As of Thursday, November 26, Walmart was listing all three of the popular gaming consoles as “out of stock.”]
Here’s a roundup of all the best Black Friday deals at Walmart, and when shoppers can start picking them up.
