Walmart Black Friday Ad Scan: What to Get

Walmart's Black Friday ad is officially making its way around the web, showcasing electronics front and center. In-store deals kick off on Thanksgiving at 6 p.m. (Online sales will be running all day long.)

Overall, the 32-page ad is a mixed bag. We've called out the most noteworthy finds below—and are also tipping off Slickdealers to the ones that aren't all that special.

Click here to view the entire ad scan. In the meantime, here's a breakdown of what to expect.

TVs

As far as TVs go, this year's Black Friday deals represent a little bit of everything. Vizio 70" Class Smart HDTVs, which are currently advertised for $1,198, will be selling for $898. Meanwhile, some off-brands will be going for far less. (40" Emerson 1080p LED HDTVs for $149; 55" Hisense 4K UHD Smart LED HDTVs for $448.)

But while reasonably priced, some would argue that the price tag isn't worth it since the picture quality may not be up to par. For example, the Slickdeals community has served up mixed reviews on the Hisense brand. On the other end of the spectrum, Black Friday at Best Buy will snag you a 60" Samsung HD Smart LED HDTV for $799.99—a great deal on a solid brand.

Walmart is rocking a 55" Samsung Curved 4K UHD Smart TVs for $998, but so far there are only crickets in that deal thread.

Computers, Tablets, and Accessories

TVs aside, Walmart is also unloading RCA 2in1 Tablets for $128 this Black Friday, but that's only a $20 saving from the current price. For traditional tablets, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite 7.0 Android with a protective pouch will be going for under $80. It's currently selling on the Samsung website (no pouch) for $139.99; not a bad deal.

Select HP laptops will be marked down from $279 to $199 as well. But the deals on printers are just ok. (HP wireless printers are marked down by only $10.) But if you've got a Fitbit Flex on your list, they'll be slashed from $99 to $59.

What Not to Buy

Video Games

Attention gamers: PlayStation 4 Uncharted Bundles will be marked down from $349 to $299, which isn't a bad deal. But Kohl's is offering the same price—plus $75 in Kohl's cash. Walmart will also be spotlighting a variety of video games at decent prices, but nothing that's really any better than what other retailers will have.

Toys

Walmart is pushing toys hard this Black Friday. But despite popular belief, the second week of December is actually the best time of year to buy toys—unless, of course, you come across a hot must-have for the season. This year's ad scan has decent toy deals (like Nabi Nick Jr. Kids Android Tablets marked down from $139 to $79). But overall, you're probably better off waiting to pull the trigger on toys.
