Black Friday is a big business. 30% of yearly retail sales occur between the Friday following Thanksgiving and Christmas. Considering how hard it is for retailers of any size to enter 'into the black' (the reason it's called Black Friday, incidentally) in this competitive, convoluted business world, retailers can't afford to miss out on the holiday shopping market.
As one of the biggest retailers in the world, Walmart's all too keenly aware of this. They've been rolling out big holiday savings starting on Nov. 1 in a bid to win shopper's devotion early and often.
Sam Walton's brainchild has done a ton of rebranding in recent years, transforming from the sea of 'Rollback Price' signs of the 90s to become something more upscale and contemporary. They've become a go-to spot for surprising deals on consumer tech. Today, we'll be looking at some of the best deals on tablets and headphones.
If you're looking to get portable, productive, and efficient, here are some of the best pre-Black Friday deals on tablets from Walmart!
The Apple iPad is still the gold standard when it comes to tablets. Or, in this case, you could consider it the Rose Gold or Silver standard.
The Apple iPad totally changed the game with its 9.7" screen and vivid Retina display. It set the standard for tablets as their own device and not just an upgraded, over-sized smartphone. The 5th Generation Apple iPad is like the best of both worlds, however. It doesn't weigh much more than a phone, weighing only a pound and being only 7.5mm thin. It also stands out from other tablets on the market, with a detailed 8MP iSight camera and 1.2MP FaceTime HD camera.
Whether you're a content creator looking to make a video and other media on the go, without carrying a bulky laptop, or you want to be more productive at work or school, the Apple iPad will help you reach your goals. You can get one for only $349.99, $80 off from the $429.99 list price.Shop Now
