Online Sale Starts Sooner : As detailed in Walmart's Black Friday ad , it will begin online sale on Wednesday, November 21st at 10pm ET. Target's online sale does not begin until Thanksgiving.
Nintendo Switch Bundle Deal : Walmart is offering the Nintendo Switch with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundle for $299.00 ( see ad scan deal ). Target has the same bundle for $299.99 ( see ad scan deal ), which is $0.99 more expensive. While it is less than a dollar difference, Walmart still has the better deal.
iPhone Deals: Walmart is providing a free $300 gift card with activation of the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR ( see ad scan deal ). It is also providing a free $400 gift card with activation of the iPhone 8, iPhone 8+ or iPhone X ( see ad scan deal ). Target is only offering a free $250 gift card with qualified activation on iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max ( see ad scan deal ) and a $150 Target Gift Card with qualified activation of the iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 8 or iPhone X on Verizon, Sprint or AT&T ( see ad scan deal ).Where Target Black Friday Beats Walmart Black Friday 2018
Target REDcard 5% Discount : Target REDcard holders receive an additional 5% off orders every single day. Signing up for a REDcard is free, and it is a great way to save even more money during Black Friday. Additionally, REDcard holders get early access to select Black Friday deals on November 21st. Walmart does not have an equivalent card, so Target is the winner.
More TV Deals : Target has over 20 HDTV deals this year, while Walmart only has seven. You could argue Walmart may have a better deal or two , but Target offers way more variety. Target's deal on the Element 55-inch Smart 4K UHD TV for only $199.99 (save $180) ( see ad scan deal ) remains one of the top bargains of the season. Walmart's featured TV deal is a 65-inch Class 4K Roku Smart TV for $398 ( see ad scan deal )
