Other things to know: Doesn't come with a charging station that can empty debris into a disposable bag like the "plus" does. Not as durable or repairable as other robot vacuums.

Read our review of the best robot vacuums.

Cuisinart Power Advantage Plus 9-Speed Hand Mixer — Budget Pick
Walmart deal price: $63; street price: $75

What we like:Our budget pick for the best hand mixer. Sturdy, effective, and dependable, especially for the price. Nice range of speeds. Comes with several attachments that all store neatly in the incorporated snap-on case.

Other things to know: Overall it's less powerful, feature-packed, and easy-to-use than our top pick. Street price has risen in the past year. Only available in the chrome finish.

What we like: Our budget pick for the best artificial Christmas tree has 700 UL-listed warm-white incandescent lights—not LEDs— and 1,319 branch tips. Looks especially good once fluffed. Ornaments stand out better than on densely foliaged trees. Sturdily built.

Other things to know: You have to manually plug the light strings together, a fussier method than with the in-pole connections we favor. Finding the plugs among the foliage is a bit challenging.

Eufy Robovac Max 11S Robot Vacuum — Budget Pick
Walmart deal price: $130; street price: $190

What we like: One of our budget robot vacuum picks. Quiet, nimble, and affordable. Works best in small spaces with bare floors and short-pile rugs. Rarely gets stuck. A basic, bump-and-run bot.

Other things to know: The big downside is that it doesn't seem to be built to last for more than a couple of years on average, and we’ve heard about plenty of unrepairable breakdowns that happen even sooner. Struggles with debris in rugs, especially softer, thicker types. Clip the on-page coupon.

Other things to know: Three-year warranty is quite generous. Some reviews complain that the labels on the buttons wear off over time and that the kettle breaks within a year or two, but we don't think these are widespread problems.

Sony PlayStation 5 and Spider-Man 2 Game Bundle — Our Pick
Walmart deal price: $500; street price: $570

What we like: Our PlayStation game console pick, plus the new Spider-Man 2 game, which we loved in our recent review. Has a disc drive, so you can watch UHD Blu-ray movies as well as play new or used PS5 and PS4 game discs.

Final Fantasy XVI (PS5) — Staff Favorite
Walmart deal price: $35; street price: $60

What we like: A staff favorite video game that's unfortunately exclusive to the PS5. A departure from the typical scenes and settings of traditional Final Fantasy games, Square Enix’s newest addition to the series is darker, more emotional, and more Game of Thrones-esque than you might expect. Voice acting and performances are a notable high point.

Other things to know: Gameplay is more active (for better or for worse) than the traditional turn-based style of older Final Fantasy games (if you enjoyed FFXV’s action-oriented combat, you’ll likely be fine with this). Walmart requires store pickup.

Read our review of the best video games Wirecutter is playing.


Walmart deal price: $30; street price: $65

What we like: Our budget pick for the best gaming mouse. Customizable, responsive, and satisfying buttons with an accurate sensor. Best gaming mouse we tested in this price range.

The 60+ Best Walmart Black Friday Deals We’ve Found (9)

Shokz OpenRun Headphones — Our Pick
Walmart deal price: $90; street price: $130

What we like: Our pick for the best headphones for runners who don’t like earbuds. Bone-conduction headphones transmit music directly to the inner ear, leaving the ear canal open. Solid, lightweight build with IP67 waterproof rating. Easy-to-access controls. Clear vocal range.

Other things to know: Must crank up the volume high to hear lots of bass or deep tones, which causes the temple pads to vibrate and tickle. Two-year warranty. Proprietary charging cable. While we've seen it at this price before, we've never seen it drop any lower. Select colors available.

23andMe DNA Testing Kit (Health + Ancestry Service) — Runner-Up
Walmart deal price: $100; street price: $160

What we like: Our runner-up DNA testing kit pick. Just as accurate as our top pick, with a more polished interface. Differentiates maternal and paternal lineages (not all do). Kit includes add-on health package that identifiespotential health indicators in your DNA.

Other things to know: Smaller DNA database than that of our top pick. We didn’t evaluate the add-on biomedical testing. Notable privacy concerns. Among all DNA testing services, legal guidelines are limited—meaning it's impossible to guarantee who will be able to use your information in the future.
