Target & Walmart release Black Friday ads for holiday shoppers

Target & Walmart release Black Friday ads for holiday shoppers

Several prominent retailers in developed markets, notably in the USA, have geared up to make whopping gains from the upcoming festive season post the Black Friday. Online Black Friday sales will kick off a day earlier than previous year.

To give shoppers a preview of what to expect, Walmart is offering 18 Black Friday deals on its website right now, while supplies last. If you want to skip the hassle of the store, the sales will also be available online starting Wednesday, Nov. 21 at 9 p.m. Oh, and Walmart's bitter opponent to the U.S. and global retail crowns has nothing in the pipeline for iPhone XR shoppers/bargain hunters.

Some of the hottest deals include $360 off a Microsoft Surface Pro 6 ($599), $200 off a Dell Laptops with Intel Core i5 & SSD ($399.99), and $120 off a WD Easystore 10TB USB 3.0 Hard Drive with 32GB USB Drive Bonus ( $179.99).

Best Buy's Black Friday Ad front page presents doorbusters as well as thousands of deals.

For years, Black Friday has marked the start of the holiday shopping season in the United States with retailers offering steep discounts. Best of all, you don't have to go through the hassle of shopping in person. Target competes with Walmart's Black Friday 2018 deals on Samsung flagship smartphones by matching its store credit with $300 Gift Card.

Sony PlayStation 4 Bundle - Walmart will offer PS4 Slim 1TB Spider-Man Black Friday 2018 bundle for $199.

On Nov. 22, from 4 6 p.m. local time, Walmart stores will throw special Black Friday parties for customers. Two of these are from Samsung, both of which are 4K and smart TVs. Target undercuts Walmart's cheapest 4KTV with its Element 55-inch Smart 4K UHD TV for only $199.99 (Save $180).

When it comes to Walmart's associates, Bratspies said that they will all get a 25% discount - their usual 10% discount, plus an additional 15% - on a basket of goods at some point during the holiday season.

Walmart is set to report quarterly earnings before the bell next Thursday. Best Buy will open doors on Thanksgiving Day starting at 5:00 PM -1:00 AM.
