Just like Best Buy and Target, Walmart has already started to release some of its Black Friday deals ahead of the main event next week. The retailer began rolling out discounts online as part of its Deals for Days event earlier this month, and will continue to add more deals every Monday at 7PM ET / 4PM PT.

Although it’s possible we’ll see prices drop even further when Black Friday officially lands, Walmart is already offering some steep discounts on a range of popular products, including the first-gen AirPods Pro. For your convenience, we’ve curated some of the best tech deals at Walmart for you to check out here. If you’re looking for even more deals, be sure to check out our roundup of the best early Black Friday deals available at all retailers. We’ve also put together retailer-specific roundups for Target and Best Buy, just in case Walmart doesn’t have the item you’ve been eyeing.


The best Black Friday deals you can already get at Walmart

Streaming stick deals

  • Walmart’s throwing in a free Funko Pop! of Stranger Things’ Eleven with Eggos when you buy Google’s discounted Chromecast with Google TV (4K) for $29 instead of $49.99. This is the streaming device we recommend most should buy. It sports nice features like support for 4K content and Dolby Vision HDR, a Google Assistant-compatible voice remote, and can even pull together recommendations from your favorite streaming services.

  • If you prefer something cheaper, Walmart is also selling Google’s new Chromecast with Google TV (HD) streaming device for $18 instead of $29.99. This entry-level model doesn’t have 4K streaming capabilities or support for Dolby Atmos, but it can play HDR videos and has a Google Assistant-compatible remote. Read our review.
  • Roku’s Streaming Stick 4K is available for $24.98, which is a 50 percent discount. This is the device to buy if you want one that’s simple to use and also compatible with Siri, Amazon Alexa, and Google Assistant. Read our review.

Earbud deals

  • Walmart is selling the first-generation AirPods Pro with a MagSafe charging case for $159 ($90 off). While they may not offer as impressive noise cancellation capabilities as the newer version, these buds still do an outstanding job of tuning out your surroundings and sound great. Read our review.
  • Samsung’s bean-shaped Galaxy Buds Live are on sale for $69 instead of $149. While their noise cancellation capabilities aren’t particularly great, the true wireless earbuds offer powerful, balanced sound quality and good battery life. Read our review.
  • If you just need a pair of basic wireless earbuds that aren’t expensive, you can buy a pair of Skullcandy’s Dime XT 2’s true wireless earbuds for $19 instead of $29.88. These earbuds are IPX4 sweat and water resistant, and you can also use each bud independently to, say, make calls. Note, however, we’ve not tested these buds.

Smartwatch and fitness tracker deals

  • Apple’s latest smartwatch, the Apple Watch Series 8, is $50 off in the 41mm, GPS-enabled configuration, dropping the price to just $349.99 at Walmart. The terrific wearable is similar to the last-gen Series 7 but sports a couple of new features, including temperature sensors and crash detection. Read our review.
  • You can buy the older Fitbit Versa 2 for $99 instead of $149.99 from Walmart. The fitness tracker measures distance, heart rate, and sleep quality but also supports Fitbit Pay and works with Amazon Alexa.

Speaker deals

  • Google’s second-generation Nest Mini is on sale for $18 instead of $49. The tiny smart speaker can fit just about anywhere — even on the wall — but sounds good despite its small stature. It also comes with support for Google Assistant. Read our review.
  • You can buy JBL’s Flip 4 speaker for $59 instead of $99. The portable speaker is IPX7 waterproof so you don’t need to worry about getting it wet and comes with Bluetooth support.

Miscellaneous deals

  • Hisense’s Roku 75-inch 4K TV works with both Google Assistant and Alexa and supports Dolby Vision HDR and HDR10. It comes with a Game Mode that Hisense claims should improve input lag, though it only sports a 60Hz refresh rate. You can buy it on sale for $448 at Walmart.
