One of the most anticipated Black Friday ads of the year has just been released.
Walmart has unveiled its 2016 Black Friday deals, which begin in-store at 6 p.m. Thanksgiving day, the same time as deals at its competitor Target. Many of Walmart's deals, however, will be available at 12:01 a.m. online.
Walmart, like Target and Best Buy (its ad is coming soon) is not joining the anti-Thanksgiving shopping movement, which means that, if you want the hottest deals, you will have to line up Thursday afternoon and skip the pumpkin pie.
At this point, Walmart is not advertising "Guaranteed in stock" deals as it has done for the past few years, though that could change as we get closer to the big day. However, it will be offering many of the same deals online starting at 12:01 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day.
Walmart is also bringing back the wristband system to keep things orderly, so that you know if there are enough TV's or iPads when you get to the front of the line.
Top deals include a 55 inch 4K V for the super-low price of $298.However, that will be a limited edition doorbuster, which means you must line up early if you want it.
Walmart is also offering a top brand name Samsung 50 inch 4KTV for just $398.
