If you’ve not gotten enough flyers in the mail or in your e-mail for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, here’s a great way to tell which deals are the best and which should be passed over.
Like last year, we’ve done a huge amount of research, reviewing and just spotting the hottest deals for our readers, and you can check all the articles here as there’s plenty covering every aspect you can think of. It’s our way of giving back to our faithful readers, plus most of the team here love anything tech so digging out the best deals was quite their dream come true.
Amazon’s Cyber Monday deals are already out, so predictably Walmart wasn’t going to be far behind. Like many Cyber Monday retailers, a selection of the deals will be released early so keep your eyes open and this page bookmarked.
Walmart is coming out swinging for Cyber Monday 2016, and these are the deals to which you should pay attention. Also, note product pages are included where available and take the time to recognize where a particular deal is Cyber Monday Only or a Cyber Week Deal which will see it available all week long (while stocks last):
Samsung 60-inch 1080p HD Smart LED TV + $80 Walmart Gift Card for $579 (save $1,120) – product page TBC – a premium brand and huge size for a superb price. Cyber Week Deal
Samsung HDTVs over 50 percent off MSRP – product page TBC – potentially great deals, but await the exact models first (see tip below)
VIZIO SmartCast 50-inch Class E-Series 4K Ultra HD, Smart, LED TV for $379.99 (save $148) – product page – beats most Black Friday offers. Cyber Monday Deal
Cyber Monday TV tip: always remember to check the specific TV model when retailers release them before making a purchase. Even the best manufacturers have weak models in their line-up that you are better off avoiding, so do your research.
While these deals aren’t necessarily remarkable or unique to Walmart, they all represent very solid deals:
Google Home for $99 (save $30) – product page – repeated at many major retailers but a hot product at a good price – Cyber Week Deal

Treat With Caution
Like all retailers, a few of Walmart’s Cyber Monday deals should be avoided – either because they are poor deals or because the offers can be beaten elsewhere. Cross these offers off your list:
Promark P70 VR Drone for $99 save $50) – product page – a Cyber Week Deal but already out of stock and only rated 3.5 stars by buyers
Quadrone Hybrid Drone for $99 (save $30) – product page – discrepancy between deal price ($99) and current listing price ($109) so watch this isn’t an error. Cyber Week Deal
