Illustrated price tag with a Walmart logo

Walmart's Cyber Monday deals are here, and Consumer Reports has scanned the ads and the website to find the best prices on products that have passed our rigorous tests. You’ll find discounts on everything from TVs, sound bars, speakers, and headphones to soda makers and cookware.

While many retailers have the same or similar prices on most products, Walmart may have a leg up on online-only stores if you can arrange for in-store or curbside pickup. This may be the best way to ensure that you avoid shipping delays and get your gifts in time for the holidays.

Hisense 43-Inch 4K H55-Series Android Smart TV

    We didn’t test this set, but in general, entry-level Hisense 4K TVs have done fairly well for picture quality, though not for HDR (high dynamic range), in Consumer Reports’ testing. Like other Android TVs, it has Chromecast and Google Assistant built in.

    Hisense 43-Inch H65-Series 4K Android Smart TV

      This 43-inch 4K smart TV from Hisense, a model a step above the H55-Series set above, did fairly well in our ratings, with decent HD and 4K picture quality. However, like many less expensive sets, its HDR performance is ineffective. The Android TV system has Chromecast for streaming from mobile devices, plus Google Assistant built in.

      Samsung 58-Inch TU7000-Series 4K Smart TV

        This is an entry-level model in the company’s mainstream non-QLED 4K TV lineup for 2020; we didn’t test this screen size, but the 55-inch Samsung UN55TU7000 was a satisfying overall performer except for HDR, which was ineffective. 

        LG 65-Inch CX-Series 4K OLED Smart TV

          We didn't test this exact 4K OLED TV—we tested the LG OLED65CXAUA model that's similar except it's sold via warehouse clubs—and it's among the best TVs we’ve seen so far in 2020, with top-notch picture quality and effective HDR performance. It also has great sound, with support for Dolby Atmos immersive audio. It's not inexpensive, but it's now several hundred dollars cheaper than it was earlier this fall. And if you're a my Best Buy member (it's free to sign up) you'll save another $50.

          Laptops and Tablets

          MSI 15-Inch GF65 Gaming Laptop

            With an Intel Core i7 processor, 8 gigabytes of memory, 512GB of solid state storage, and a dedicated graphics card (albeit one of Nvidia’s lower-end options), the laptop is likely to sail through popular games such as Fortnite and Rocket League, not to mention “real” work involving office apps, video calls, and web browsing. The model we tested had 16GB of memory, which comes in handy when you’re using many apps at once, but 8GB should suffice for most users.

            Microsoft 13.5-Inch Surface 3 Laptop

              This laptop has solid specs—an Intel Core i5 processor, 8 gigabytes of memory, and 256GB of solid state storage—and, according to our testers, the high-res, 4K display produces accurate colors, making it a nice choice for those who enjoy streaming movies on the go.

              Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite

                This is a nice tablet, too, and it comes with an S Pen stylus for those who like to doodle and take notes on the screen. Once again, the tablet has a big, bright display; solid battery life; and plenty of speed for routine tasks. In this case, though, there’s only 64 gigabytes of storage. The model we tested had 128GB. But you can quickly and inexpensively expand the volume with a microSD card.

                Apple AirPods (2nd-Gen.)

                  This is the classic version of Apple’s AirPods without noise-canceling tech. Unlike the Pro model, these don’t do very well in our tests—their mediocre sound quality keeps them from earning a Consumer Reports recommendation. Regardless, you can’t argue with the design, convenience, and handy features, and their overwhelming popularity speaks for itself. This is the second-generation model, in which Apple included hardware meant to improve the call quality and a charging case that can be powered using a wireless charging mat. Deals on this model aren’t unheard of, but this $40 off deal is a solid discount.

                  Sony WH-1000XM4 Over-Ear Headphones

                    Sony’s flagship noise-canceling headphone is one of the most popular models on the market, and it does well in CR’s tests. We give it high marks for sound quality, and it performs even better at blocking out unwanted noise from your environment. It has touch controls, adjustable levels of noise cancellation, a generous battery life, and a slew of other features. Target is selling this model at a nice discount from the usual $350 sticker price.

                    Bluetooth Speakers

                    JBL Flip 5

                      Our testers find the Flip 5 to be a solid performer, with slightly bass-heavy sound that should please less-than-critical listeners, and enough volume for a midsized room. Bluetooth pairing is easy, although the low-contrast external controls could be a bit easier to see and use. JBL claims that the IPX7 rating makes the speaker waterproof.

                      Sound Bar Speakers

                      Onn 2.0 Sound Bar

                        We haven’t tested this sound bar, so we don’t know how it sounds—or even whether it’s better than the built-in sound on many TVs. However, it’s unlikely you’ll find one for less money. It’s a pretty basic model that lacks HDMI—you connect it to the TV via its digital optical input—but it does have built-in Bluetooth for streaming music from a mobile device. 

                        Samsung 2.1-Channel Sound Bar

                          This model is the Samsung HW-T410, a 2020 model we see right now only at Walmart. We haven’t tested this model, but in general, lower-priced Samsung sound bars have had decent, if unexceptional, sound quality. It’s a lower-priced 2.1-channel system with a separate wireless subwoofer, plus Bluetooth audio for streaming music from a mobile device.

                          Streaming Devices

                          Roku Roku SE

                            This model, which is limited to HD resolution, is a Walmart exclusive, and about as inexpensive a player as you’ll find. Offered in a white finish, the Roku SE offers Roku’s wide selection of content and even comes with a high-speed HDMI cable. The device has been in and out of stock for the past few days, so if you miss out on the deal, be sure to circle back.


                            Roku Streaming Stick+

                              This 4K stick-style player is at the lowest price we’ve seen. (Roku says current sale prices are good only until Nov. 30.) Features include a wireless receiver with improved range and an enhanced voice remote that lets you use voice commands for search and other functions; it can also control your TV.

                              SodaStream Fizzi

                                The SodaStream Fizzi was already the best budget soda maker in Consumer Reports’ tests before its price was slashed by as much as 49 percent. The Fizzi scores almost as well as the top model in our ratings (the Fizzi One Touch) for making seltzer with a consistent amount of bubbles. It’s among the easiest soda makers to use, too—insert your bottle top in a clamp, push the clamp into place, and push start.


                                The Fizzi’s bottle caps stay on well when the contents are under pressure. The CO2 injector sits at the top of the water line, so gas entering the bottle doesn’t freeze the water in the nozzle and ice up the works—a problem for some soda makers. You can customize the amount of fizz in your soda simply by pressing the button for longer or shorter times.
