Walmart Black Friday 2012

Walmart's Black Friday Tech Deals

Walmart's Black Friday plans are moving full speed ahead — starting just after turkey has been eaten on Thanksgiving Day itself, despite online petitions for retailers to give the holiday back to their employees. The big-box retailer even has three phases of sales for major shoppers to scoop up deals: phase one begins Thanksgiving Day at 8 p.m., with another round of deals being introduced at 10 p.m., and more home-good sales at 5 a.m. on Friday.

Online shoppers won't even need to wait for Cyber Monday, as a selection of electronics will be listed at sale prices on Thanksgiving. For early prep, take a look at the tech products sure to attract a crowd over the holiday.

Apple Products

  • Buy a 16GB WiFi iPad 2 for $399 and get a $75 Walmart gift card.
  • On Thanksgiving Day there will be an iPod touch and accessory kit for $175; no specifics on the storage of this product, but likely an older model 8GB at this price level. If in store, opt for a 16GB iPod touch for $195.
