Walmart Black Friday Sale Predictions for 2018
Hey there! This Eric here, coming to you once again from the #1 Black Friday rumors site, BlackerFriday.com. This time I’m here with our Walmart Black Friday sale predictions for 2018 (more at https://www.blackerfriday.com/walmart/).
We all know that not all Black Friday sales are equal. Some are a joke, some just ok, some are pretty good, and some are fantastic. Walmart is one of those latter ones, it’s usually a sale you don’t want to miss, especially their doorbuster deals they feature on the first few pages of their ad as they usually can’t be beat.
Before we get into our Walmart Black Friday sale predictions, I just have to say that these are still just predictions for 2018. We don’t yet have the details at this moment as the ad is expected to leak sometime around November 10th or so (last year it came out on November 9th). Of course we’ll bring it to you live when that happens. The full ad will be posted right here on BlackerFriday.com for your viewing pleasure.
OK, it terms of what Walmart will likely be offering us this Black Friday, Electronics and games usually dominate the first few pages of their flyer. You’ll likely see 4K HDTV’s for under $300, like this one, a 55” from Sharp. It’s hard to imagine the prices will get any lower than this for 2018, especially in light of Trump’s trade tariffs that just went into effect.
What else? Of course you’ll have your game consoles on sale like the Nintendo Switch here for under $300 along with bundles coming on Playstation 4 and xBox One X. You’ll also find games to go along with it, and game accessories like extra controllers, etc.. Smart speakers were also very popular last year like the Google Home and Google Home Mini. The deal on the Mini was exceptionally good as it was priced at $29 (normally $49) but also came with a $25 off coupon to use on your next Walmart order when ordered through Google Express checkout on their site. So essentially the thing cost you just $4 bucks. Not bad!
What you probably won’t find anywhere else are the pre-paid phone deals from Straight Talk wireless. Last year they had the 32GB iPhone 6 for just $129 bucks (normally $199) and the iPhone SE for $99 bucks (normally was $129). You’ll probably see the iPhone 7 this year replacing the 6 as their featured phone (sorry, no iPhone XS or XS Max). If you’re not an iOS person and prefer Android, then then you’ll also find deals on various Samsung and Huawei phones as well. Whatever you end up getting then just keep in mind that these also make great Christmas presents under the tree for your kids, wife, husband, mom, dad, grandma… everyone loves getting a new phone.
Finally, now that Toys R Us is out of business, there’s probably no better place to pick up toys for your kids on sale. Walmart literally has thousands and thousands of toys on sale in stores, and even more on their website, for all age ranges. That includes all the brands I grew up as a kid — Hot Wheels, Nerf, Lego, Duplo. Bikes are also usually pretty cheap — A number of boys and girls models were offered for just $34 bucks last year. You had a few different sizes to chose from as well.
In terms of store hours here in 2018, we’re expecting them to open their doors again at 6:00PM on Thanksgiving day. However, just about all of the same deals are expected to be offered on their site as well, so you may even have a better chance on getting one of their doorbuster specials online before it sells out, rather than rushing in when stores open. Walmart’s online deals often start first thing in the morning on Thanksgiving day… that’s at 12:01AM Eastern Time.
Of course you’ll find the latest Black Friday updates on our site, BlackerFriday.com (see https://www.blackerfriday.com/walmart/). That’s not only Walmart’s Black Friday 2018 ad the moment it’s leaked, but also the ads from all the other major stores — Target, Kohl’s, The Home Depot, TJ Maxx, and just about everyone else. Check back for updates and be sure to get signed up to our newsletter if you’re not on it already.
From the entire Blacker Friday team, have a nice and relaxing Thanksgiving weekend, and good luck bargain hunting this Black Friday!
