Walmart releases 2018 Black Friday ad, includes savings on 4K TVs, Fitbits, XBoxes and PS4s

One of the most anticipated Black Friday ads of the year is finally out.

Walmart has unveiled the deals shoppers can snag in its sale, which starts at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. 

Unlike Target, Best Buy and Kohl's, where lines form outside the store in advance of the opening, Walmart has taken to scattering its lines inside. 

That prevents a mob from rushing the doors (we all remember those "Dawn of the Dead"-style videos from past years) and allows shoppers to line up at specific stations inside the store depending on what they are hoping to buy. It also provides a climate-controlled environment for shoppers.

The best Walmart deals

4KTVs are the hottest Black Friday item for the second year in a row, and Walmart's top doorbusters include a 65-inch Sharp 4KTV for just $398, one of the best prices you will find anywhere for that size.

Other big Thursday evening markdowns include Fitbits, smart home devices, iPhones, Beats earbuds and gaming systems, especially the new Nintendo Switch.  

Among the hottest deals:

  • Sharp 65-inch Roku Smart 4KTV: $398
  • Vizio 60-inch 4KTV: $498
  • Samsung 55-inch 4KTV: $398
  • Sony PS4 T8 "Spider-Man" bundle: $199
  • Apple iPhone 6 on Straight Talk Wireless: $99
  • Google Home Hub: $99 ($50 off)
  • Samsung Chromebook 3: $99
