Black Friday 2018 Ad Preview: Walmart’s Biggest Deals | Forbes

Black Friday 2018 already seems to be breaking records and the most sought-after deals from Walmart WMT +1.55%’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:

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
  • Target – Free $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
