Walmart often has really competitive pricing on everything from TVs and tech accessories to clothing and beauty supplies. The problem is they don’t always make it easy to know when something’s actually a good deal. But don’t worry, because we’re here to help.
As someone who’s literal job is to follow the latest sales from all the major retailers, this has always driven me crazy. So I can only imagine how much more frustrating it is when you’re actually shopping and trying to make sure you’re getting a good price on everything you’re buying.
Thankfully, my team and I have been doing this long enough that we know not only the kinds of things you’re looking for but also what they typically cost and what a good deal actually looks like. We comparison shop and do all the research legwork for you so you can buy with confidence. So, let’s take a look at the top deals you can get from Walmart this week.
1. Under $100: A new set of nonstick cookware
If your old pots and pans are scratched, warped, dented, or otherwise just tired and worn-out, this sale might be right up your alley. Calphalon makes the best nonstick pan we’ve ever tested, and their other nonstick cookware sets have performed well in our tests too, so we’re confident you’ll love this budget set that’s $50 off right now. For just shy of $100, you get 8- and 10-inch fry pans, a 1.5-qt. sauce pan with lid, a 2.5-qt. sauce pan with lid, a 3-qt. sauce pan with lid, and a 6-qt. stock pot with lid.
2. Under $100: A highly rated upright vacuum for pet owners
We test a lot of vacuums here at Reviewed, and Bissell’s models always perform well, so while we haven’t tested this one yet, the sub-$100 price tag and brand track record have us psyched about this deal. The Bissell CleanView is our top pick for affordable bagless upright vacuums, and our vacuum expert Jon Chan tells me this model has everything the CleanView offers, and in some cases, its tech is even better. Plus, it has a retractable power cord, a feature not enough plug-in devices have.
The Pet vacuum is, obviously, designed to handle a house filled with fur and dander. It’s also $20 cheaper at Walmart than on Amazon. Amazon’s stock is back-ordered anyway, and if you order from Walmart you can pick up your new vacuum as soon as today.
3. Under $50: The best affordable pack ‘n play
This is the best affordable playard we’ve ever tested, and right now you can get it for nearly half off from Walmart in the Priscilla print (pictured above). Considering most other colors sell in the $80+ range, and the best price on Amazon is $70, this is a crazy good deal. We love that it’s lightweight and works as a crib, bassinet, and playard. It doesn’t have some of the fancier features as its more high-end siblings, but it’s a great option if you’re on a budget or need a second playard to keep at Grandma’s house.
4. Under $350: A budget big screen with streaming built in
TCL’s Roku TVs are more impressive than their low price tag makes them seem. The Series 4 models are definitely the most barebones of the 4K TV lineup TCL offers, but that doesn’t make them less worth it, especially considering you could bring home a big screen 4K TV for less than $350.
The hardware in this model is all essentially the same as in their Series 5 TVs, which impressed us in our tests (and at my house), but the remote doesn’t offer voice control (and you can upgrade the Roku remote at any time too) and some users complained about a flickering screen. But again, $338 for a 55-inch 4K TV. Outrageous.
5. Under $40: A decent space heater to keep winter chill away
Winter is tough if you run cold or if your heating bills skyrocket when you try to keep your home a livable temperature. No matter which camp you fall in, a space heater can make the coldest months of the year more tolerable.
Right now, you can get a Lasko Electric Tower Space Heater at Walmart for $36. It originally cost $60 and typically sells for around $50. Lasko makes a lot of options at affordable prices, including the best affordable space heater we’ve tested. This model offers more options, including a fancier control unit with LED indicators and timers and detailed temperature settings.
