It’s not even November but Walmart’s already kicked off the 2019 holiday shopping season. The sale was announced last Wednesday, but many of the best deals started just after midnight on Friday, and are still available. And Vizio’s 50-inch M-Series Quantum 4K TV remains available for $398 (though the 55-inch and 65-inch models are currently sold out).
Walmart’s sale extends across all of its categories, including TVs, gaming, computers, tablets, kitchen appliances and more. We’ve combed through all the deals and posted the highlights below. Take a look — just remember that we expect even lower prices on some product categories as we approachproper. (Yes, it’s less than 30 days away.)
Walmart is offering your choice of five Xbox One S bundles for $250 — and throwing the latest chapter of the highly anticipated Call of Duty franchise in for free. So that’s at least two games plus the 1TB console. Choices include:
- NBA 2K19 plus Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2019
- NBA 2K20 plus Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2019
- Gears 5 plus Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2019
- Forza Horizon 4 with Lego Speed Champions add-on plus Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2019
- Battlefield V, Battlefield 1, Battlefield 1943 plus Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2019
The Battlefield bundle definitely seems to offer the best shoot for your scoot, but the Forza and NBA bundles offer more variety if you aren’t all-in on shooters.

Microsoft’s newest Xbox has no Blu-ray drive, as it’s been designed for “digital natives.” The device launched in May for $250. Now, Walmart has it for $200 — and it comes with downloadable versions of Minecraft, Forza Horizon 3 and Sea of Thieves as well as one wireless controller and a one-month Xbox Live Gold subscription.

The M-Series Quantum delivers excellent picture quality, with deep black levels, accurate color and very good 4K HDR performance. And its smart system is phone-friendly, with Google Cast and Apple AirPlay control.
The 55-inch and 65-inch models, which were on sale for $398 and $498, respectively, are currently sold out.

Most of Arcade1Up’s machines cost around $300. This one — which is a three-quarter-size version of the original — costs $165 once it’s in your shopping cart. And it looks, sounds and plays exactly like the old arcade machines. Walmart is also offering the Centipede edition for $175.
We bought one of these throwback Instax cameras for my daughter last year, and it turned her into a budding photographer. The pros: It’s simple to use, delivers the instant gratification of a physical print and has loads of vintage Polaroid vibes. The con: The film is pricey — so a 30% discount on the cost of the camera helps.
Note that the Cobalt Blue version costs $49; other colors may be $5 to $6 more expensive.
Apple has now discontinued the 2018 9.7-inch iPad, but Walmart will be selling the 128GB model for just under $300. That’s about $20 less than the going price for the 32GB version of the new 10.2-inch model, which just isn’t that different from the 2018 version. Basically, you’re getting 4x the storage for free.
Alternately, you can snag the cellular-enabled 32GB version of this iPad for $329 — that’s $130 off the earlier price (though, as always, you need to supply the data service).

There are plenty of good deals on Apple’s now-discontinued Series 4 Watch but, at the moment, Walmart’s $429 price on the 44mm GPS and Cellular model is the best around — and about $50 less than what you’ll find at Amazon or Best Buy.

We were excited about the Ninja Coffee Bar when it cost $140. At $99, we’re nuts about it. It offers a ton of useful brewing modes — plus the flexibility to handle various drink sizes at the flip of a switch.
Note that Amazon has followed Walmart’s lead and has discounted the Ninja to $99.
