Best Black Friday 2018 Walmart deals: PS4 and Xbox One for $200, $99 Google Home Hub and more – CNET

Walmart

Walmart revealed its full list of Black Friday deals for 2018 on Thursday, and we've been combing through it ever since to highlight some of the best deals (scroll down). The world's biggest retailer is coming out swinging. Countering a slew of deals from Target, Best Buy, Costco and Amazon, Walmart's deals start earlier than ever, and include in-store coffee service and other niceties.

While Walmart's store event kicks off at 6 p.m. local time on Thanksgiving, online deals start at 10 p.m. Eastern Time (7 p.m. PT) on Wednesday, Nov. 21. Prices are valid through Friday, Nov. 23 while supplies last. That means you'll be able to get these deals without having to visit a Walmart store.

You can check out more deals in the slideshow above and see the full ad here, but scroll down to see a few of our favorites.

A few notes to keep in mind:

  • We linked to the current listing at Walmart's website when one was available, but of course sale pricing won't be available until the sale begins (10 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday, Nov. 21).
  • CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.

2018 iPad, $250

Apple products are difficult to find on sale at the best of times. $80 off is good.

Xbox for $200

Xbox One S 1TB Minecraft Creators Bundle, $200

Like the PlayStation 4 deal above, this isn't the more powerful Xbox One X, but it's still a great price, especially if you have kids obsessed with Minecraft.

That price is not a misprint

65-inch 4K smart Roku TV: $398

Sarah Tew/CNET

This is an insane price on a big TV with Roku, the best smart TV system CNET has ever tested. Walmart's ad says the TV is either the TCL 65S4 or the Sharp LC‑65Q7300U. We haven't reviewed either model directly, but the specifications look similar to the S405 we reviewed in 2017 (pictured), which costs roughly $350 more at 65 inches.

Cheapest. 40-inch TV. Ever.

40-inch Hisense 1080p TV: $99

Walmart

Neither have we reviewed this Hisense (model 40EU3000), but we're guessing its image quality is on the bottom end of "acceptable," at best. But this is the lowest price we've ever seen for a 40-inch TV. Just last year we were excited about 32-inch TVs for $99. Insanity.

Save $50

Retro Arcade Machine (PacMan or Galaga), $249

Sarah Tew/CNET

Who wouldn't want an arcade machine in their house?

It's only $50 off, but $249 isn't too bad for Galaga! And Walmart had the exclusive on this Pac-Man machine, for some reason.

Roku Ultra for $48 (half price)

Sarah Tew/CNET

The highest-end Roku improves on our favorite 4K streamer, the Streaming Stick Plus, with a headphone jack on the remote, a remote finder and, new for 2018, JBL headphones, a $30 value. This price is also available at Target and elsewhere, but Walmart throws in a $35 credit for Sling TV, a $5 Vudu credit and one free month of Showtime, an $11 value, to get you to buy it there. (Disclosure: Showtime is a division of CBS, parent company of CNET.)
