walmart-logoThe past few years of Black Friday sales from Walmart have been rather lackluster, but this year it appears someone lit a very large fire under the companies collective behind to go all out with the discounts.

Normally we don’t do breakdowns of an individual retailer’s sales around here, but when the Walmart Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving holiday in the USA for those of you from elsewhere) sales flier leaked online yesterday, we honestly couldn’t believe it.  These aren’t just deals, they are insane deals.

(all prices pulled from Walmart’s every day prices)

Digital Cameras


Nikon CoolPix S230

The CoolPix S230 normally sells for $179.88, but will be available on Black Friday for $139. (5 A.M. to 11 A.M. only)

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC S930

This one is sort of a mixed deal.  You can get the camera for just $79 on Black Friday, but if you go on Walmart’s site right now, you can get it for $99 with a 2GB memory card on a case. (5 A.M. to 11 A.M. only)

Miscellaneous Electronics


8GB iPod Touch

This has to be one of the weirdest deals this year … they are charging more for the 8GB iPod Touch on Black Friday than they do on a normal day, but with a reason.  $188.95 is the normal online price for this iPod, but on Black Friday it will be $195 with an included $50 gift card to the iTunes store, technically making it $145.  You still save, just in an odd way. (all day Friday)

Sandisk 8GB Cruzer USB Flash Drive

Normally $20, will be $14 on Black Friday.  You can never have enough flash drives. (all day Friday)

Western Digital 1TB My Book Essential Portable USB 2.0 Hard Drive

Normally $89.82 on Walmart’s site, it’ll be $78 on Black Friday.  Not a huge savings, but one can never have enough hard drive storage. (all day Friday)

Video Games


Playstation 3

The SonyPlayStation 3 Slim will come with two games, Infamous and Batman Arkham Asylum, and The Dark Knight movie on Blu-ray for $299.  The PS3 Slim alone normally sells for $299, Batman Arkham Asylum goes for $59.82, Infamous sells for $53.82 and The Dark Knight for $15.86, so you are getting $129.50 in added bonuses.  If you are looking for a PS3 for this holiday season, this is going to be a tough deal to beat. (5 A.M. to 11 A.M. only)  (We know the Walmart ad says the extras are a $139 bonus, but we got the $129.50 by using’s prices.)

Xbox 360

You can pick up an Xbox 360 Arcade (meaning no hard drive included) for $199 and it will include Madagascar 2 game and Madagascar/Madagascar 2 DVDs.  The game and movies are a $53 bonus, but we really don’t recommend buying Xbox units without hard drives as it limits what you can do with the system. (5 A.M. to 11 A.M. only)

Should you go to Walmart for Black Friday?

We have only looked at the tip of the deals Walmart is offering on Friday, you can see the full ad here (PDF link), but I’m going for the first time in several years.  There are just enough deals here to lure me out of my house at that insane hour.  We haven’t even touched on the numerous HDTV deals as they would take forever to research.

Be sure to check back tomorrow for some general tips on how to get the most out of Black Friday, and how to stay safe.
