Black Friday 2018 already seems to be breaking records and the most sought-after deals from

Walmart
’s big circular have yet to be revealed. But, now that we have seen the 13-page Dell Black Friday ad, the 77-page JCPenney Black Friday ad, the 20-page Sam’s Club One-Day Sale ad and the 47-page Target Black Friday ad all leak, the picture for Walmart’s hottest items is becoming clearer…

Using hints from last year’s Walmart Black Friday ad, the aforementioned Black Friday circulars and insight from my holiday season sales partner BestBlackFriday.com, here are my updated predictions for the deal prices in Walmart’s ad scan. I expect Walmart will formally release it this week and these are the top deals expected  for the Apple iPhone, Samsung Galaxy, Microsoft Xbox One and Nintendo Switch:

The first Walmart Black Friday 2018 sales are liveWalmart

Apple iPhone

Last year, Walmart offered a Free $300 Walmart Gift Card with purchase of Apple’s iPhone X, iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus (review last year’s deal). The first iPhone deals are now coming out for Black Friday 2018, and I believe Walmart match this with a $300 Gift Card for the purchase and activation of an iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max. If it does offer a gift card deal on the red-hot iPhone XR, it will probably lower at around $200. This deal was better than Target’s last year, and Target is offering a $250 gift card this year for the latest iPhones so I expect Walmart to beat it once again.

See the current announced iPhone deals for Black Friday 2018 below and note Sam’s Club will match Walmart, though for one day only:

  • Sam’s Club – Receive a Sam’s Club Gift Card worth up to $300 with Purchase and Activation on Installment or Subsidy of Select iPhones (Nov. 10th Only) – See Ad Scan Deal
  • TargetFree $250 Target Gift Card with qualified activation on iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max on Verizon, Sprint or AT&T – See Ad Scan Deal
  • Target – Free $150 Target Gift Card with Qualified Activation on iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 8 or iPhone X on Verizon, Sprint or AT&T – See Ad Scan Deal – See Ad Scan Deal

Samsung Galaxy

Last year, Walmart offered a Free $300 Gift Card with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8, or Galaxy S8 Plus with activation (review last year’s deal). The first Samsung Galaxy phone deals are coming out for Black Friday 2018, and they are also in-line with last year, allowing Walmart to step up once more. I believe Walmart will offer a $300 Gift Card with the purchase and activation of a Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy S9, or Galaxy S9+. See the current announced Samsung Galaxy phone deals for Black Friday 2018 below.

  • Sam’s Club – Receive a $300 Sam’s Club Gift Card with Purchase and Activation on Installment or Subsidy of Select Samsung Smartphones (Nov. 10th Only) – See Ad Scan Deal
  • Target – Samsung Galaxy Note9 and $300 Target Gift Card with qualified activation on Verizon or AT&T – See Ad Scan Deal
  • Target – Samsung Galaxy S9 and $300 Target Gift Card with qualified activation on Verizon, Sprint or AT&T – See Ad Scan Deal
  • Target – Samsung Galaxy S9+ and $300 Target Gift Card with qualified activation on Verizon, Sprint or AT&T – See Ad Scan Deal

Microsoft Xbox One

Last year, Walmart offered the Microsoft Xbox One X 1TB Gaming Console for $499 (review last year’s deal). Like other stores, it was featured in the Black Friday ad but not actually on sale. The first Xbox One deals are already coming out for Black Friday 2018, and I expect Walmart to offer at least $100 off Xbox One X bundles and $100 off Xbox One S 1TB bundles to stay competitive with what we are seeing. It may even include gift cards valued at up to $30 with select bundle purchases.

See the current announced Xbox One deals for Black Friday 2018 below.

  • Costco – Save $70 on Xbox One X Forza Bundle with Controller, Forza Horizon 4, and 3-Month GamePass – See Ad Scan Deal
  • Costco – Save $70 on Xbox One S 1TB Bundle with 2 Controllers and 3-Month Game Pass – See Ad Scan Deal
  • Costco – Save $100 on Xbox One S Minecraft Creators Bundle – See Ad Scan Deal
  • Costco – Save $70 on Xbox One S 1TB Bundle with 2 Controllers, Madden 19, FIFA 19 and 3-Month Xbox Game Pass – See Ad Scan Deal
  • JCPenney – Microsoft Xbox One S 1TB Minecraft Bundle for $199.99 (save $100) – See Ad Scan Deal
  • Kohl’s – Microsoft Xbox One X 1TB PlayersUnknown’s Battlegrounds Console Bundle + Get $120 Kohl’s Cash for $399.99 (save $130) – See Ad Scan Deal
  • Kohl’s – Microsoft Xbox One S 1TB Minecraft Creators Console bundle + $60 Kohl’s Cash for $199.99 (save $100) – See Ad Scan Deal

Nintendo Switch

Last year, Walmart offered the Nintendo Switch Console with Neon Blue and Neon Red Joy-Con for $299 (review last year’s deal). This was more of an advertisement than an actual deal, but deals on the Switch were rare last year. The first Nintendo Switch deals are already coming out for Black Friday 2018, and I expect Walmart to offer at least $60 off select bundles. It also may include a gift card valued at up to $30 with select bundle purchases.

See the current announced Nintendo Switch deals for Black Friday 2018 below.

  • Kohl’s – Nintendo Switch Bundle with Turtle Beach Headset and Carrying Case + Get $90 Kohl’s Cash for $329.99 (save $30) – See Ad Scan Deal
  • Target – Nintendo Switch Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundle for $299.99 (save $59.99) – See Ad Scan Deal
