Walmart Black Friday 2019: These are the best deals so far – CNET

Vizio’s excellent M-Series Quantum 4K TV is on sale right now.

Walmart launched its Black Friday sale back in October, even though the mega-sale doesn’t begin, technically, until Nov. 29 this year. Nevertheless, the retailer has unveiled discounts on TVs, tablets, video games and a range of other popular gifts for the 2019 holiday season. Smart shoppers understand that though there may be lower prices ahead, it’s never a bad idea to take advantage of early sales — before the most in-demand products sell out and the insanity of the holidays takes hold.

That noted, Best Buy has burst out of the gate with its own pre-Black Friday sale, which kicked off Thursday morning with some epic deals on a range of Apple products. In fact, it’s offering better prices than Walmart on some iPad models and the Apple Watch Series 4, as noted below.

We continue to comb through all the deals at both stores, posting the Walmart highlights below and other deals at our Best Buy roundup. Take a look and check back often, as we’ll be adding new discounts and updating prices and availability on a regular basis.

The M-Series Quantum delivers excellent picture quality, with deep black levels, accurate color and very good 4K HDR performance. And its smart system is phone-friendly, with Google Cast and Apple AirPlay control.  Read our Vizio M Class TV review.

We bought one of these throwback Instax cameras for my daughter last year, and it turned her into a budding photographer. The pros: It’s simple to use, delivers the instant gratification of a physical print, and has loads of vintage Polaroid vibes. The con: The film is pricey, so discounts like these help. This Walmart bundle includes a Mini 9 camera and a case, a twin pack of film (for 20 photos), photo frames and filters.

When Lenovo introduced the IdeaPad 330s last year, it started at $500. Now, you can get a nice midrange configuration — with a quad-core AMD processor, a 256GB SSD and 8GB of RAM — for under $350. Equipped with a nice 15.6-inch display, the 330s has thinner-than-usual bezels and an aluminum lid. Walmart has been dishing up this deal for between $329 and $349 — now is the time to strike.  Read our Lenovo IdeaPad 330s preview.

The Eufy RoboVac 35C connects via Wi-Fi to Alexa or Google Assistant, which means that you can tell it to clean up, and then walk away. We haven’t tested this particular model, which Walmart has discounted by more than $200, but we did review the similar 11S Max model (pictured above), which we found to be a solid performer on bare hardwood floors.  Read our roundup of robot vacuum cleaners.


Most of Arcade1Up’s machines cost around $300. This one — which is a three-quarter-size version of the original — costs $170 once it’s in your shopping cart. And it looks, sounds and plays exactly like the old arcade machines. Walmart is also offering the Centipede edition for $180.

We were excited about the Ninja Coffee Bar when it cost $140 — and now Walmart has it again for $99. (The price has moved, unpredictably, between $99 and $109 in recent days.) This machine offers a ton of useful brewing modes — plus the flexibility to handle various drink sizes at the flip of a switch. Read our Ninja Coffee Bar review.
