Note: While I call these Walmart's "worst" deals that doesn't mean they are bad, it means you are wasting money because the exact same deals can be found elsewhere for a better price.

- Walmart's Black Friday Xbox One S 1TB Minecraft Creators Bundle sells for $199 saving you $100 ( See Ad Scan Deal ). Target charges 99c more but it throws in a free $20 Gift Card ( See Target Deal ). Kohl's does even better, again charging 99c more but adding $60 Kohl's Cash ( See Better Deal ).
