Of the top Black Friday retailers that put out flyers every year, Walmart has always been a leader in the brick-and-mortar category. The mega-store is known for offering deals on products in almost every category, from smart TVs to children’s toys. As such, it has become a one-stop destination for many savvy shoppers during the holiday season.

This year, Walmart is making it even easier for buyers to snap up great deals by expanding its online retail offerings. Available as of November 1, shoppers can access a whole host of great deals, (which were made available to users with an “ Early Access Pass ” earlier this week). These discounted items, which will be available from now up to Black Friday, are listed at up to 40 percent off regular prices. These deals also give us an idea of the kinds of sales to expect on Black Friday itself. Featured items include an 82-inch Samsung 4K Ultra HD Smart QLED TV, on sale for $1,102 off regular price (you read that right), and the 64GB iPhone X with Free $55 Airtime, listed with a $55 discount.
Anyone who has shopped at Walmart during Black Friday before knows that it usually brings forward incredible deals on TVs, cell phones from Samsung and Apple, laptops from HP, gaming consoles, and other home electronics. The retailer’s ad from last year delivered an impressive 32 pages of discounted products. The company also has a habit of matching whatever the other major retailers offer; for example, Walmart will be offering free two-day shipping for orders of $35 or more, just like Target announced last month. This goes for its sale prices as well as its offers on shipping and returns.
It’s unlikely that any other store will be able to match Walmart’s prices on smartphones, and the store has historically offered the cheapest large 4K TVs from notable retailers. If either is on your wish list this year, be sure to keep your eyes on Walmart (and this post) as the next few weeks progress. Doors open for the Black Friday weekend sale at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving night, November 22, though you can shop the entire day online, too.
