Prime day was created by Amazon as a sort of Summer Black Friday but this year even that got messed up. Now that it’s almost here, other major retailers are using the hype around it to cash in with discounts on their own. Which, of course, is great of us consumers. Who doesn’t want to save some money and get the gadget they’ve been eyeing for a while or even something you didn’t plan to get until you saw its price reduced. Obviously, that’s what companies are hoping we’ll do, but hey, if at the end of the day you’re happy with your purchase, it’s all good.
Walmart, being the retail giant that it is, doesn’t pass on the Prime day extravaganza and is offering deals on all sorts of tech products. Called “Big Save”, the Walmart event started on October 11, two days before Amazon Prime day and will end October 15, one day after it.
We’re not sure if Walmart will release the deals in waves all week or what’s already on the website is everything that will be discounted but we’re hoping for the former. Because, honestly, these deals aren’t as impressive as we were hoping for them to be. Regardless, there are still some that are worth checking out, so let’s get to it!

Walmart deals on Apple products
Unfortunately, this year the discount event falls on the same week during which the new iPhone 12 models will be announced, but they won’t go on sale until later this month, so no hope for deals on them. However, older iPhones are getting discounted, but the pickings are unfortunately rather slim. The same goes for other Apple products as well, the Walmart Big Save event is rather disappointing in this regard.
Walmart Prime Day iPhone discounts
If you’re looking for something cheaper, then there’s also an offer for $350 off of the iPhone XR with Straight Talk.
There’s not much to choose from if you’re looking to save money on other Apple products, as it turns out. The best we could find is a $50 discount on the AirPods Pro and $30 off of the Apple Watch Series 3.
Walmart deals on Samsung products
Switching to Samsung, the situation is even worse this year. At least when it comes to phones, that is. TVs are seeing plenty of discounts and we have a few of them picked out for you below. But Galaxy phones from the latest flagship lines, Note 20 and Galaxy S20 haven’t moved down in price at all. The best we could find are two budged phones from last year being discounted. The Galaxy A50 drops by $50 and the Galaxy A20 by $80. Both phones come with Straight Talk prepaid plans, which combined with the price makes them a good choice for a younger kid or an elderly relative.
One of the best deals on Samsung gadgets right now is for the Galaxy Watch. Yes, that’s the older generation, not the new Galaxy Watch 3, but still, at this price, it’s quite a good offer. You can save $160 right now on both sizes, the smaller one comes only in Rose Gold and the larger one only in Silver. You can grab them from the links below:
Walmart Prime Day Samsung TV discounts
On the TV front, Samsung has a wide variety of offers and most of its lines have at least a few models with significant discounts. Starting with the cheapest offer we picked, you can save $330+ on a Samsung 50″ 4K LED Smart TV that sells for $379.99 right now. One step up is the Samsung 49″ 4K HDR Smart QLED TV for $997.99, $400 below its usual $1399.95 price tag. If that’s not good enough for you, maybe you’ll like the Samsung 65″ 4K UHD QLED Smart TV from The Frame series for $1,497.99 down from $1997.99. The TVs from that line will blend with your interior perfectly and show you beautiful pictures when not in use. But if you’re looking for something even bigger, then perhaps you’d be interested in the Samsung 82″ 4K HDR Smart QLED TV for $2,097.99. That’s $500 in savings, or about 20% less than the original price.
Walmart deals on wireless headphones
Moving to the over-the-ear class of headphones, we have three pairs from popular brands. First up is JBL with a $70 discount on its E55BT model, now down to just $79, quite a steal. At almost twice that, but still reduced by $50, we have the Sennheiser HD450BT at $149. And the high end, with a $50 discount as well Walmart is selling the Bose QuietComfort 35 II for $299.
Walmart deals on laptops, consoles, TVs and cameras
Walmart laptop deals
Looking to get a new laptop and save some money? Well, the Big Save event doesn’t have much to offer for now, but there are a couple of deals worth checking out. The first is for the Lenovo IdeaPad 3 15″ laptop with an AMD Ryzen 5 3500U processor for $429. A decent machine for home schooling and entertainment. The second is coming from the lesser-known brand Motile and it’s a 14″ laptop with AMD Ryzen 5 CPU that is paired with Radeon Vega 8 Graphics. This laptop is now $449.98, down from $700. With the Vega 8 graphics you can even do some light gaming on it, making it a well-rounded little machine.
Walmart console deals
On the console front, we have picked two deals for both Xbox and PlayStation. Starting with the Xbox, we have the Xbox One S 1TB Forza Horizon Bundle discounted by $90 down to $389.99. And if you’re looking to get the more powerful Xbox One X, then you can save $100 with the NBA 2k20 Bundle for $399.
If you’re looking to buy a PlayStation, we recommend the following options: The PlayStation 4 Slim 500GB Uncharted 4 Bundle for $389.99 down from $479.69. Or, if you need the extra performance, the PlayStation 4 Pro 1TB Console with The Last of Us and Ghost of Tsushima bundle for $599.99 down from $679.99. You can find the links for all four deals below:

We already saw what TV deals Samsung has, but other brands also have lucrative discounts, especially if you’re looking for a decent TV on a budget. Check them out:
Walmart camera deals
Cameras are no exception during this Big Sale event by which we mean there aren’t many great discounts available. The best ones we could find are for a Canon camera and for the GoPro Hero 7. Canon EOS Rebel T7i DSLR Camera is no $799, $100 off its usual price of $899. It comes with a 18-55mm lens. As for the GoPro, it’s $80 down, now only $249.
