There are plenty of great offers this Black Friday that are worth your time (and money). You can save money on everything from Nanoleaf smart lights and OLED TVs to Razer gaming gear. However, for US shoppers, it’s always worth checking out some of the best Walmart Black Friday deals. The giant store always has great deals.
After scouring Walmart for the best deals, here are some of the biggest savings…
Apple Watch SE (1st gen): $149
With the Apple Watch SE, the tech giant has been working to make its wristwatches accessible to the more casual fitness tracker. And by and large, it manages to offer smart features at a fraction of the price of, say, the Apple Watch Ultra. Now the Apple Watch SE is all the more affordable as Walmart shaves $130 off its original asking price.
What do you get for your money? You can take calls, reply to texts, and track emails—all from your wrist. You can use the Apple Watch SE to track your daily activity, track all your workout trends in the fitness app, and monitor all types of workouts, from tai chi and pilates to running, yoga, swimming, and dancing. It’s also swimproof and stylish to boot.
Nintendo Switch MarioKart Edition: $299
What is there to say about the Nintendo Switch that hasn’t already been said? The Switch is easily one of our favorite consoles here at Stuff, but its continued popularity means the price rarely drops in any significant way. There are savings at Walmart though: the Nintendo Switch console with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has been discounted to $299, a savings of $100.
The deal includes an original Nintendo Switch and accessories, as well as a copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe with a 3-month membership to Nintendo Switch Online. And for them Yes, really If you’re looking to spend this Black Friday then check out our guide to the best Nintendo Switch accessories out there right now.
Beats Solo3 Wireless Headphones: $79
$79 for a pair of Beats headphones is nothing to sneeze at, especially when we talk about the very reliable Beats Solo3 Wireless headphones. The Solo3 embodies great sound, up to 40 hours of battery life and seamless Bluetooth integration. And now it’s over $50 off thanks to Walmart’s Black Friday deal. They also come in three color options – black, red, and rose gold.
Yes, Beats headphones have gone through many upgrades since we reviewed the Solo3 Wireless headphones in 2016. We recently named the Beats Fit Pro Best Fitness Headphones of the Year at our 2022 Stuff Gadget Awards. The Beats Solo Pro are also a great over the earbuds, offering balanced sound and excellent noise cancellation. However, the Beats Solo3 still offer a great option for those who prioritize affordability over studio-grade sound.
iRobot Roomba i1+: $288
For the lazy and lethargic among us, Walmart has reduced the price of the iRobot Roomba i1+ to $288, which is a savings of around $240. For under $300, the Roomba i1+ cleans your home and drains itself, leaving you more time for anything other than vacuuming.
Admittedly, iRobot has evolved a bit from the Roomba i1+. The iRobot Roomba Combo j7+ that vacuums and mops your floor comes with all sorts of bells and whistles for a current price of $899 (up from $1099). The Roomba s9+ offers iRobot’s most powerful cleaning yet, but it’ll currently cost you a cool $999. But for automated housework at a bargain price, you can’t go wrong with the iRobot Roomba i1+.
Google Nest Mini (2nd Gen): $18
We’re big fans of the 2nd gen Google Nest Mini, a small, blob-like device that lets you dim the lights, pause your soap operas, and turn down the central heating with your voice. It’s also available at Walmart for the bargain price of $18, up from $49 this Black Friday season.
The audio is perfect for podcasts, recipe guides or weather updates. Far-field voice recognition means you don’t have to yell to get Google to place your bids, while Voice Match Smarts ensure you get specific results. We gave the Nest Mini a full five-star rating when we first reviewed it in 2019 – and the 2nd-gen fabric version is even better value these days.
Samsung Galaxy Tab A8: $139
For those looking for a (relatively) powerful Android tablet at a bargain price, you can’t go wrong with the Samsung Galaxy Tab A8, which is currently available at Walmart for $139 instead of $199.
The Tab A8 comes with a 10.5-inch screen and Dolby Atmos speakers, perfect for Netflix binges. A 5-megapixel front camera works well for video calls and meetings, while a beefy battery life means you won’t run out of juice when taking the Galaxy Tab A8 with you on the go. Onboard 32GB storage is also a welcome addition.
