Walmart Big Save 2020: The 16 Best Deals (Prime Day Rival Sale)

https://www.wired.com/story/walmart-big-save-deals

Amazon’s Prime Day shopping event is happening now, but retail rival Walmart didn’t want to feel left out and created its own “The Big Save” sale that started October 11 and runs through Thursday. We’ve poured over hundreds of product pages to find you the best deals from Walmart so far. You don’t have to pay for a Prime membership to get these perks or give to the Amazon Overlords if you’d prefer to spend your money elsewhere. Walmart is one option (though it’s also a retail overlord).

Updated October 14: The Lenovo Smart Clock is back in stock. We also added some Nintendo Switch games and an awesome Sony OLED TV.

Note: We strike through deals that sell out or are unavailable at their discounted price. Deal sometimes return and items come back in stock faster than we can update, so check for yourself.

See our guides to Apple Watches and wireless earbuds for our favorite picks.

  • 55-Inch Sony Bravia OLED TV for $1,298 ($500 off): If you’re going to spend more than $1,000 on a TV, it should be OLED. Sony’s OLED TVs are some of the most beautiful models on the market, and this 55-inch Bravia is no exception. Expect deep blacks and astonishing contrast, all for a whopping $500 discount.

  • Apple Watch Series 3 for $169 ($30 off): We’ve recommended the Series 3 for three years now, and we’re glad that Apple has continued to sell it alongside its more expensive options. You’re not getting the newest health features, like blood oxygen monitoring or an ECG, but it’s still integrated with the iPhone and has the addictive fitness ring feature. It regularly goes on sale, and you can also find this price on Amazon.

  • Samsung 290W 2.1ch Soundbar with Wireless Subwoofer for $198 ($32 off): If you’re looking to improve your home’s sound system, this is a pretty good price on a soundbar and subwoofer bundle. We haven’t tried this exact one, but we have tried and liked a similar model from Samsung.

  • AirPods Pro for $199 ($50 off): We love the the AirPods Pro (WIRED Recommends, 8/10) for their impressive sound quality and noise-canceling abilities. If you’ve been wanting to give them a try, $50 off is solid savings for Apple hardware that doesn’t go on sale too often. This deal is also available on Amazon.

  • Lenovo Smart Display 7 for $79 ($20 off): If you want a bigger screen, Lenovo’s 7-inch smart display is a great option for most kitchens. It’s big enough to watch videos or follow recipes, but small enough that it won’t take up the whole counter.
