Cyber Monday 2020 Walmart Deals 2x1

If you're hoping to shop online and save big this Cyber Monday, you'll definitely want to shop Walmart's deals. While it often plays second fiddle to Best Buy, Target, and Amazon, Walmart offers great deals on TVs, electronics, and kitchen appliances. In fact, the retail giant often matches and exceeds many of its competitors' prices.

This year, with the arrival of Walmart+, we expect Walmart to show up in a big way — especially during Cyber Monday. Here's everything you need to know about Walmart's sales schedule and the best early deals available now. 

The best early Cyber Monday deals available now at Walmart

When is Walmart's Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale? 

Every year, Cyber Monday occurs the following week after Black Friday. This year, Black Friday and Cyber Monday land on November 27 and 30 respectively.

Walmart is trying something new for Black Friday 2020 and Cyber Monday 2020. Instead of a long weekend of deals, Walmart will introduce new discounts every week leading up to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Here's the schedule:

  • November 4 at 7 p.m. EST online and in-store on November 7 at 5 a.m. local time. Discounts will focus on toys, electronics, and home products.
  • November 11 at 7 p.m. EST online and in-store on November 14 at 5 a.m. local time. Discounts will primarily be for TVs, smartphones, and tablets.
  • November 25 at 7 p.m. EST online and in-store on Black Friday, November 27 at 5 a.m. local time. This is the official Black Friday date, so we expect to see discounts on most categories.

These sales end the day they are released.

While Walmart has yet to release any info on their Cyber Monday sale, we expect the retailer to continue many of its Black Friday discounts through that weekend. Walmart will likely release new, restocked deals on Cyber Monday focusing on tech and smart home gear.  

So, if you miss a deal during Walmart's lead up to the Black Friday, you'll likely have another opportunity in-store for the same, or close to the same, discounts on Cyber Monday. 

What should you buy at Walmart during Cyber Monday?

Walmart's Cyber Monday offers are on par with those offered by Best Buy, Target, and Amazon. Outside of a few select doorbusters, we expect each retailer to price-match their competitor's prices during the sales event.

Outside of the savings on TVs and kitchen appliances that are customary during the shopping events, Walmart usually offers huge discounts on Google's smart home products. Shoppers will likely see big discounts or bundles featuring Google Nest Audio, Google's latest smart speaker, and the updated Chromecast streaming device.

How we selected the best Cyber Monday deals at Walmart:

  • We only choose products that meet our high standard of coverage, from brands we've tested and trust.
  • We compare the prices against other retailers like Amazon, Target, and Best Buy and only include the deals that are the same or better (not including promotional discounts that come from using certain credit cards).
  • We research price history thoroughly, to ensure that every deal we list is actually worth your time.

Does Walmart have curbside pickup?

To help alleviate that stress that comes with holiday shipping delays, Walmart will offer contact-free curbside pickup for online orders on Cyber Monday and Black Friday. Going this route can save shoppers from any shipping-related headaches and get you your products in sooner. Plus, there's little risk of your packages going missing.

Should I get Walmart+?

New to 2020 is Walmart+, the premium retail subscription from Walmart. While the benefits frankly don't match what a Prime subscription offers, there's a free trial to take advantage of free shipping and any possible exclusive offers Walmart may surprise us with.

For the two-week trial, shoppers can choose between starting their free trial to take advantage of the early deals starting the first week of November, or for the Black Friday sale after Thanksgiving. The smart money says to wait until Black Friday since that's when Walmart will likely offer the best deals.
