Black Friday is nearly here! Black Friday sales, however, have already arrived, at least at Walmart. And to make things easy for you, dear reader, we've combed through hundreds of deals at the mega-retailer's website and pulled together our greatest hits, with plenty of options to please everyone on your gift list at well below budget — meaning you'll have cash left over to tick off a few items on your own personal wish list at similarly eye-popping prices. Kristen Gall, retail and shopping expert for Rakuten, told us that "at Walmart, you can find major discounts on items across a wide variety of categories — however, the biggest deals are in tech and home goods."
From electronics to cookware, bedding to outerwear, we've got all of Walmart's best steals to kick off your holiday shopping in style and save you lots of dough — like a fan-favorite Shark vacuum for over $100 off and a huge, mega-cozy electric blanket for 50% off. So get comfy, and get ready to check some names off your list.
We're all guilty of letting the dust bunnies pile up now and then, especially when we're too lazy to lug that heavy vacuum around. Well, it's time to revolutionize your cleaning experience, especially with holiday gatherings right around the corner. Right now this Shark Navigator is just $97 at Walmart — over $100 off — and it's just what you need to make your chores less ... chore-ish. The Navigator is très lightweight, so you can take it with you from room to room without it feeling like a workout session. Oh, and when you have to clean those hard-to-reach spaces like stairs, furniture and your car, the lift-away detachable pod will allow you to make them spick-and-span lickety-split. Based on what five-star reviewers are saying, it'll be the best $97 you've ever spent: "We have four dogs and three cats in our home, so it can be a challenge to keep up with the shedding," shared one reviewer. "We recently tried the Shark Navigator XL vacuum, and I am very impressed. This thing managed to suck up all kinds of dirt and hair my other vacuum left behind! The filter also seems to work better on this vacuum, as I find myself not needing to dust as much."

This countertop multitasker doubles as a toaster oven and rotisserie, with 12 preset cooking settings to enable you to conquer kitchen needs like toasting up to six slices of bread, roasting a turkey or vegetables, baking desserts or pizzas, and getting your jerky on with its dehydrator function. And that's just for starters! In addition to the oven itself, you'll also get a mesh crisper tray and a pizza rack. The drip tray will catch all the crumbs and drippings from your food, making cleanup a breeze. Plus, its digital control allows you to, as they say, "set it and forget it." While it's a great appliance to have to double your oven space, some shoppers said it works so well, it's become their all-around go-to: "I have almost stopped using my oven," wrote one. "This appliance does nearly everything. I have used it as a rotisserie, an air fryer, a regular oven, and I have even broiled some gorgeous steaks. It's one of the most useful tools in the kitchen."
The set includes frying pans, saucepans, a stockpot, steamer and more — plus lids to match everything. As far as upgrades go, this 10-piecer is the epitome of modern efficiency, especially for an incredible $60.
There's so much to love about this air fryer. For starters, it features two baskets with dual zones, so you can whip up fries at the same time you're crisping chicken tenders. The potential time-saving with this feature is huge — not to mention the $70 Black Friday savings.
