Top Five Black Friday 2019 Deals from US Best Buy, Target and Walmart Flyers

Top Five Black Friday 2019 Deals from US Best Buy, Target and Walmart Flyers

By Simon Hung

Black Friday 2019 is less than two weeks away and you can see this year's American deals now in US Black Friday flyers from Target and Walmart! Best Buy US has also unveiled their Black Friday deals on the American Best Buy website, but it's more of a categorized list instead of a traditional flyer.

As per tradition, you'll find plenty of deals on big-name electronics including televisions, video games and smart home tech, but perhaps more importantly -- these flyers provide a glimpse at the products we'll likely see on sale at Canadian retailers once our flyers are released.

We've picked five deals from each retailer to give you an idea of the deals you'll find across the border this Black Friday -- note that all prices reflect US dollars.

Best Buy -- stores open Thursday, November 28 at 5:00 PM

  • Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K - $24.99 (regularly $49.99)
  • Google Home Mini, 1st Generation - $19.99 (regularly $49.00)
  • Hisense 65" 4K HDR Android Smart TV - $299.99 (regularly $499.99)
  • Microsoft Xbox One X 1TB Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Bundle - $349.99 (regularly $499.99)
  • Sony WH-1000XM3 Wireless Noise-Cancelling Headphones - $279.99 (regularly $349.99)

Target -- stores open Thursday, November 28 at 5:00 PM

  • Amazon Echo Dot, 3rd Generation - $22.00 (regularly $49.99)
  • Apple iPad 10.2" with Wi-Fi, 32GB - $249.99 (regularly $329.99)
  • Element 65" 4K HDR Roku Smart TV - $279.99
  • Google Nest Hub - $79.00 (regularly $129.00)
  • Samsung 65" NU6900 4K HDR Smart TV - $479.99 (regularly $699.99)

Walmart -- stores open Thursday, November 28 at 6:00 PM

  • Apple Watch Series 3 with GPS, 38mm - $129.00 (regularly $199.00)
  • Instant Pot Duo 6-Quart 7-in-1 Cooker - $49.00 (regularly $79.00)
  • Nintendo Switch games including Super Mario Odyssey, Super Mario Party and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - $30.00 (regularly up to $59.99)
  • Philips 65" 4K Android Smart TV - $278.00
  • PlayStation 4 1TB Only on PlayStation Bundle - $199.99 (regularly $299.99)

There are several excellent deals on smaller items like standalone Nintendo Switch games and smart speakers with prices at under $30.00 USD, but as with most previous years, televisions dominate the Black Friday ads for all three American stores, with prices starting at under $280.00 USD for some 65" 4K sets -- for reference, the lowest-priced 65" television with Black Friday pricing at Best Buy Canada is $599.99, though that may be subject to change as more Canadian Black Friday deals are released.

Remember to visit the RedFlagDeals Black Friday page over the next week to see the latest Black Friday 2019 news, tips and first-looks at Canadian Black Friday flyers as they're released!

    • The rumoured 1TB PS4 Slim is confirmed. $199 and bundled with God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, and The Last of Us: Remastered. So that'll be what, $259 here? That's a pretty hot PS4 starter pack, if you haven't ever jumped on board.

      Best prices for new copies that I've seen. Already have two of them but I might pick up Zelda.

      Man, that is an amazing starter pack. I haven't played GoW but I've heard it's amazing. Those other two are some of the best games I've ever played and I've ever played. The system has a few more years of life in it so if anyone hasn't jumped on it, now is the time.

    • Just wanting to inform everybody, specifically about the PS4 deal, while it is an amazing deal without a doubt, the PS5 is on its way next year aiming for holiday season and they've confirmed it should be able to play PS4 games as well.

      I mention this because if you do hold out another year, you can pocket that ~$250-300 from this year and have a huge headstart on paying for the PS5 which is probably going to clock in around 300-500. Due to backwards compatibility (the ability to play PS4 games), you also won't miss out on the library of PS4 games while also getting the very latest system. Heck, if they come out with a PSVR 2 headset, you could use that headstart money on that as well.

      This also applies to anyone looking for Xbox deals, the next one is also coming out in 2020 and should also retain the ability to play Xbox One games.

      But if none of that is of interest to you, by all means jump on the deals when it hits Canada.

      Ideally both except with the CAD conversion price. But if they want to sell it for $199 here too, I'm all for it!

      Yeah but most people want to play now not next year lol, also EB does a lot of great trade in deals with previous gens when upgrading to a new gen which means you would probably lose only 20-30 bucks max if you upgrade next year when trading in this system (provided it's $259 for the sale here).

    • Not a hot deal if buying in USA. You have to pay tax 2x (once at the store and again at the border, thanks cbsa) and that's on CAD value after conversion. Also add in your time crossing the border. Even though I live so close to the border import tax or duties or whatever u wanna call it kills most deals in US.

      And don't say stay 24hrs cuz there's cost associated with that too.

      I know we like to assume everyone on here is from Ontario but people in Alberta/Saskatchewan and Quebec shop in Montana or New Hampshire respectively and pay no sales tax.

      I don't think there is any chance the PS5 debuts near $300 in Canada. I've read anywhere between $399-$499 US as the launch price next year, and Canada's dollar is at 65-67 cents to the US dollar right now. Unless there is a major change in our dollar, I'd assume the PS5 costs over $500 in Canada on it's release.

      I'm already planning on the PS5 being $650+ here. $500USD (the estimated price) converts to $658CDN today.

      I'd still endorse this deal if you are looking to get a PlayStation soon, whatever reason you may have.

    • Never forget, the USA is the most amazing country on Earth for consumer sales.

      SE Asia is where it's at for commercial purchasing, but there isn't a board for that on RFD.

      Its not that bad for taxes.
      If you reside in Quebec, go at the Cornwall Border (ontario) and to Massena.
      Pay I think 8.5% tax there and after at the Cornwall border you will pay 5% tax (not 15% like at Lacolle, since you reside in Quebec and get back in Quebec at the border).
      They expect you to contact the government on your end afterwards to pay the 10% tax left.

      I bet this system will be trading in for $100 towards a PS5 if ebgames ARE STILL AROUND... This system will probably retail for $169 next BF when PS5 arrives... I'll wait

      then Sony will resell you the NEW 4k Rehashed current GEN games ... rinse and repeat ...

      Good for you, apparently you know everything.../s

      There is no way this system drops down to 169 next BF, the PS5 will more than likely cost 599 retail and I see this dropping down to 249 retail. I don't know if you're just arrogant or think that people don't value having something now vs having it a year from now, just because you're frugal and can wait doesn't mean everyone else wants to lol. In regards to EB, if there is still used games to be sold they will be around...the only way that they might not be here next year is if all the console companies decided to drop support for physical media and decided to go purely digital, which would be a logistical nightmare.

    • I really don't understand why people say wait for next year's consoles. The price is going to be prohibitive, it'll have bugs and QC issues, stock will be hard to find, games won't be fully optimized, etc. Sure the PS4 and XB1 are 6+ years old but they have a solid install and player base, a huge library of games, and will continue to be supported for years with patches and new games. Plus all the people jumping to the new console will be selling off their old stuff for cheap.

      The PS3 and 360 weren't taken out back and shot when current gen was released.

      There's no way they'll launch a console at more than $499. Microsoft and Sony routinely sell at a loss initially rather than start with that kind of absurd price (besides the original Xbox which is actually a great case of why they don't do this, as it was recognized as a huge mistake and dropped real quick). And the way they're designed now it likely won't even be at a loss to start IMO.

      The PS4's primary use isn't media content (that's just a bonus), its main purpose is to game. Most desktop graphics cards cannot even game at 4K, and the Xbox One X is the only console that has the power to game in 4k at the moment. Can your $40 fire stick play any first or second party games? Didn't think so.
