Better Apple iPhone Deals – If you have plans for an Apple iPhone this holiday season, then go for Walmart. It is offering a $300 gift card with the purchase and activation of an Apple iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max or iPhone XR. There is a $400 gift card with an iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus or iPhone X. On the other hands, Best Buy doesn’t even come close to Walmart with, up to $200 savings on Apple iPhone X and $150 on Apple iPhone XR, iPhone XS, or iPhone XS Max. While Best Buy is providing direct cashback savings on iPhones, Walmart is giving away gift cards, which of course, are not less than cash.
Cheapest Big Screen TV Deal – Walmart is ready to amaze you with offers on a 65-inch Smart TV. The store is offering a 65-inch Class 4K Roku Smart TV from either Sharp or TCL at $398.
