Walmart Black Friday Deals 2014
Walmart’s Black Friday Deals are not as blockbuster as we may have wanted it to be, but there is plenty for all. Here are the main highlights of the deals if you’re planning on heading there this year.
- The original iPad Mini will be available for $40 less, at $199, but you’ll also be picking up a $30 gift card to go with that purchase, should you do so. This is sadly a doorbuster deal and is available only between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. Thursday evening.
- If you haven’t ruined your Thanksgiving Dinner over that old product, this one might be tempting. At 8 P.M Thursday, the original 16GB iPad Air will be available for $397, which is almost the same price as on Apple’s website, but you get a chance to pick up a $100 Walmart gift card with that deal. Both these doorbuster deals are slightly disappointing in the light of what Best buy is offering; a new edition iPad Air 2 for $399, though you don’t pick up any bonus gift cards.
