Black Friday has arrived at last. Walmart had already reduced prices on thousands of items before the big event, but now the day is here and sales are in full swing, helping you save on top brands and popular products. Whether you need to restock on everyday essentials, replace a worn-out appliance, grab an Apple gadget or spruce up your guest room before visitors arrive, Walmart has plenty of home items on sale both in-store and online. It's also a great time to get a head start on holiday gift giving.

Daily deals are cropping up, and with Walmart's official Black Friday having already launched, there are even more savings to be had, so keep an eye on this page, because we're keeping it as up to date as possible to make sure you're the first to see the best deals.
Best Walmart Black Friday deals overall
Walmart's latest round of Black Friday deals is now live to all -- even if you're not Walmart Plus member. There are some stellar offerings available on tech and home goods, and these are the pick of the bunch according to CNET's team of shopping experts.
Another Apple deal sure to be popular applies to the AirPods Pro. These are the Lightning-equipped, second-gen version, but if you don't mind these over the almost identical USB-C version you can save a packet.
Walmart's online Black Friday sale kicked off on Nov. 8, but its last major tranche of deals went live at noon ET on Nov. 22 for Walmart Plus members. The general public will now be able to get in on the savings online, with the deals going live in stores on Black Friday proper. Online-only Cyber Monday deals will close things out on Nov. 26.
Are Walmart Black Friday deals available both in store and online?
Yes, Walmart is offering in-store savings for Black Friday, though deals have been available exclusively online for a few days now. For example, the deals that launched on Nov. 22 online weren't available in stores until Black Friday itself. Walmart's Cyber Monday sale will be an all-online affair.
