A week after the Amazon Black Friday deals arrived and a day before the Best Buy Black Friday deals are scheduled to kick off, the first wave of Walmart Black Friday deals are here — bringing steep discounts on everything from laptops and tablets to robot vacuums and televisions — and with stock shortages and shipping delays set to take the nation by storm, you aren’t going to want to miss these incredible early Black Friday deals at Walmart.
Should You Shop the Walmart Black Friday Deals Today?
Yes, and we can’t stress this enough: We’re going to see the same supply chain issues as last year, if not worse, so beat the rush and do your holiday shopping as early as possible. If you wait until Black Friday there’s a very good chance the item you purchase won’t arrive in time for the holidays. In fact, chances are must-have gifts like AirPods, iPhones, iPads, and games consoles like the Nintendo Switch will be on backorder before we even reach November.
The discounts we’re seeing in the Walmart Black Friday deals today are substantial, and it’s hard to imagine them being much cheaper on Black Friday itself — maybe $10 or $20 off at another retailer, if anything. But what’s a few extra bucks in your pocket if the item doesn’t arrive in time?
