Historically, Walmart does not mess around when it comes to Black Friday deals. In fact, over the years, its doorbuster events have risen to the level of infamy, with amazingly low prices on items designed to bring people into its stores, online or in real life.Much like its competitors, Walmart started Black Friday early, and while it’s not officially an “early Black Friday sale” at Walmart, there are plenty of chances to bring home something now rather than during the rush.
What to Expect from Walmart Black Friday 2019
Far and away, the most popular Black Friday deal at Walmart last year was the $299 Nintendo Switch Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundle. That one sold out fast, but remained the most popular item in spite of its flash-in-the-pan availability. A distant second place spot was occupied by the Samsung 4K 55-inch Black Friday TV deal for $398.
We already know Walmart, as well as Amazon and Best Buy, will see the return of the exact same bundled Nintendo Switch Black Friday deal as last year. It’s not very exciting, especially if you’re reading this site, but for someone looking for a Switch to give as a gift or for Pokemon, it’s pretty appealing.
Last year’s Samsung 4K TV deal is practically quaint here in 2019. Expect to see much better prices on big 4K UHD TVs this season, since lots of TVs have already beaten last year’s Black Friday prices.
Since Walmart is so big, and has so many different products, expect some big savings on things like appliances and kitchen devices. If you haven’t gotten yourself an Instant Pot just yet, I’d put it off a little longer. Last year it was one of Walmart’s top selling products through our own Black Friday article.
Walmart Black Friday Nintendo Switch Deals
Walmart doesn’t have anything special planned that we know of, at least not yet. We do know Walmart’s Black Friday Nintendo Switch deal is the same as everyone else, for the time being. On top of the Nintendo Switch Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Black Friday bundle for $299, Walmart will also have a strong showing of Nintendo Switch games on sale for $39.99.
However, it’s really important to point out these are the deals we know of. Walmart has done a pretty fantastic job of putting together its own Nintendo Switch bundles outside of the holidays, so there’s a solid chance it will have some customized Nintendo Switch bundles for Black Friday.
