Technically, Walmart's Black Friday sale prices are supposed to start online at at 10 p.m. Eastern Time (7 p.m. PT) on Wednesday, Nov. 21, while physical stores don't open until 6 p.m. local time on Thanksgiving. But here's the deal: Some Walmart Black Friday prices are available now, as of Sunday, Nov. 18.

In fact, many key deals -- including those $200 to $230 PS4 and Xbox One bundles -- are also available at Target, Best Buy and GameStop, too.

Walmart Black Friday sale prices available now

PlayStation 4 Slim 1TB with Spider-Man, $200 (save $160)

Aloysius Low/CNET

The PlayStation 4 is a great all-round console and Spider-Man is one of the best big-budget games released this year. This isn't the PS4 Pro. of course, but for the price, it's a great all-in-one PlayStation starter package with $100 off the hardware, and one of the year's best games (and a PS4 exclusive) thrown in for free.

Xbox One S 1TB Minecraft Creators Bundle, $200 (save $100)

Sarah Tew/CNET

Like the PlayStation 4 deal above, this isn't the more powerful Xbox One X, but it's still a great price, especially if you have kids obsessed with Minecraft. And you can sign up for Xbox Game Pass for $1 now through Jan. 3, too.

2018 iPad, $250 (save $80)

Sarah Tew/CNET

This deal will be widely available during Black Friday week, but Walmart will have the 2018 iPad on sale first -- a great price for a great gift.

That price is not a misprint

65-inch 4K smart Roku TV: $398

Sarah Tew/CNET

This is an insane price on a big TV with Roku, the best smart TV system CNET has ever tested. Walmart's ad says the TV is either the TCL 65S4 or the Sharp LC‑65Q7300U. We haven't reviewed either model directly, but TCL tells us it has "similar form and function" to the S405 we reviewed in 2017 (pictured), which costs roughly $350 more at 65 inches.

Cheapest. 40-inch TV. Ever.

40-inch Hisense 1080p TV: $99

Walmart

Neither have we reviewed this Hisense (model 40EU3000), but we're guessing its image quality is on the bottom end of "acceptable," at best. But this is the lowest price we've ever seen for a 40-inch TV. Just last year we were excited about 32-inch TVs for $99. Insanity.

iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus: $400 gift card

Sarah Tew/CNET

From the cheapest TV to the most expensive iPhones...of last year. You'll pay full price for the iPhone X, iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus, but a $400 gift card (that's four Insignia 40-inch TVs!) is hard to pass up if you're a frequent Walmart shopper. You'll need to activate through AT&T, Sprint or Verizon. 

This deal is in-store only: Nov. 22 at 6 p.m. through Nov. 23. Schedule an activation appointment at 6 p.m. Activations begin at 8 p.m.

iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR: $300 gift card

Josh Miller/CNET

Wait, you want a new iPhone? That'll cost you even more, and net a lower-value gift card. But if you get the cheaper XR ($750) it's a solid deal and might be worth heading to Walmart to make it happen.

This deal is in-store only: Nov. 22 at 6 p.m. through Nov. 23. Schedule an activation appointment at 6 p.m. Activations begin at 8 p.m.

Samsung Galaxy S9, Note 9, S9 Plus, S8, S8 Plus: $300 gift card

Josh Miller/CNET

Similar deal where you have to pay full price in-store, but with a cheaper phone. The S9 from 2018 starts at $650, while the S8 models from 2017 are even cheaper. If you're not wedded to the iPhone, these Samsungs are pretty sweet bargains with the gift card.

This deal is in-store only: Nov. 22 at 6 p.m. through Nov. 23. Schedule an activation appointment at 6 p.m. Activations begin at 8 p.m.

Google Home Hub, $99 (save $50)

Brian Bennett/CNET

That's a whole 33 percent off the extremely handy Google Home Hub, which was just released. And it's got no camera, so it's a more comfortable bedroom and kitchen companion that other smart displays.

Instant Pot 8-Quart Pressure Cooker for $59 (save $40)

Instant Pot via Amazon

Mate, who doesn't want to make soup in like 15 minutes? Discounted Instant Pots seem like they're everywhere this year, but this one is a whopping 8 quarts -- and it's $10 cheaper than many rival deals, too.

$59.00 at Walmart 5 reasons you should own an Instant Pot

Bose SoundSport Wireless Headphones, $99 (save $50)

Sarah Tew/CNET

The Bose SoundSport earphones are already reasonably priced, $50 off makes them well worth a look.

Retro Arcade Machine (Pac-Man or Galaga), $249 (save $50)

Sarah Tew/CNET

Who wouldn't want an arcade machine in their house?

It's only $50 off, but $249 isn't too bad for Galaga! And Walmart had the exclusive on this Pac-Man machine, for some reason.

Google Home Mini for $25 (half price)

Chris Monroe/CNET

Amazon doesn't sell Google Assistant products because they directly compete with its Alexa-powered Echo speakers. And while this great half-price deal on the Google Home Mini is widely available almost everywhere else, it'll be available earliest online at Walmart.

Roku Ultra for $48 (half price)

Sarah Tew/CNET

The highest-end Roku improves on our favorite 4K streamer, the Streaming Stick Plus, with a headphone jack on the remote, a remote finder and, new for 2018, JBL headphones, a $30 value. This price is also available at Target and elsewhere, but Walmart throws in a $35 credit for Sling TV, a $5 Vudu credit and one free month of Showtime, an $11 value, to get you to buy it there. (Disclosure: Showtime is a division of CBS, parent company of CNET.)
