Walmart’s holiday sales are arguably the main event during Black Friday 2017. Amazon may be its pluckiest rival, but Walmart remains king pushing out massive discounts across all the biggest technology brands. Now the Walmart Black Friday 2017 ad has leaked and it doesn’t disappoint…
So I’ve analysed and broken down the best Black Friday Walmart deals and you will find the highlights below along with my tips to ensure you secure the biggest possible savings.
My thanks to BestBlackFriday.com which has worked with me to collate these deals and create order from the inevitable annual chaos

Walmart’s Black Friday 2017 Tech Deals
Just like Best Buy, Walmart is offering a number of Black Friday 2017 deals which are available right now (see live deals). Below is my selection of some of the best Walmart Black Friday 2017 deals, some of which are available now with the rest launching on November 23rd.
- *LIVE* – Samsung 49-inch Class Curved 4K (2160P) Smart LED TV (UN49MU6500FXZA) for $497.99 (save $402) – product link
This costs more than many 49-inch 4K TV deals on Black Friday this year, but the price of $497.99 is solid for this particular model.
- *LIVE* – Microsoft Xbox One X 1TB Console (Now in Stock) for $499 – product link
Not an actual deal, but stock is rising again for a new console that shoppers want. The fact you can buy it now is the big appeal here.
- *LIVE* – Acer A315-51-380T 15.6-inch Laptop for $299 (save $100) – product link
Solid deal all around for this particular model. It is more expensive than some of the other doorbusters being advertised, but this is a better laptop.
- Sharp 55-inch Class 4K Smart LED TV for $298 – product link
While this is not the cheapest 55-inch 4K TV (Best Buy has one for $279.99 and Target for $249.99), this one may end up being the best overall deal of the three as it comes from a premium brand.
- Element 39-inch Class HD Smart LED TV for $125 – product link
This is not the best TV available this year, but it is the cheapest among the 39-inch and 40-inch HDTV deals.
- iPhone 6 on Straight Talk Wireless 32GB for $129 (save $70) – product link
With actual iPhone X offers limited, the iPhone 6 on a Straight Talk Wireless 32GB deal is intriguing. The iPhone 6 remains a solid phone, and it is cost effective if you do not require the new features of the iPhone X and iPhone 8.
- Samsung 65-inch Class Curved 4K Smart LED TV for $998 (save $300) – product link
Prices for premium 65-inch 4k TVs still hover around $1000, and this is one of the better ones from Samsung.
- Apple iPad 32GB Wi-Fi Only (5th Generation) for $249 (save $80) – product link
Discounts on Apple products are fairly rare, and this is a great price for the 5th Generation iPad.
- Playstation 4 GranTurismo Sport VR Bundle for $299 (save $100) – product link
Just released this month, the $100 savings is great for such a new bundle.
Walmart Black Friday 2017 Tips
Walmart stores will start its sales at 6pm local time on Thanksgiving and remain open throughout the night into Black Friday. If there is a big ticket item such as an HDTV, Xbox One or PS4 that you want, you should get in line early before Walmart opens.
In addition to this remember on November 14 to check Walmart.com for your local store map. Walmart will post store maps for every one of their locations. The map will include the locations of the most sought after doorbuster items within each store. I recommend studying the map of your store closely to identify the product you want so you can head right to that spot once the doors open without having to look around.
If you are not going to a bricks and mortar Walmart store, you should be prepared to shop Walmart.com online all day November 23th and on Black Friday (November 24th). I also expect some of Walmart’s online deals to begin late in the evening of November 22nd. Lastly, don’t forget to take advantage of Walmart.com’s free 2-day shipping on orders totalling $35 or more.
