13 Walmart deals you won’t find on Amazon

This story is part of it Christmas Gift Guide 2021, our list of ideas by subject, recipient and price so you can find the perfect gift.

As the Christmas shopping season continues, retailers are constantly trying to make offers to each other and discount them. While this often means better savings for us, it also makes it harder to tell if you’re really getting the best deal or if it’s even cheaper elsewhere. Instead of sorting page by page and comparing prices, let us do it for you.

We’ve screened Walmart Today’s deals offers that focus on finds that aren’t available on Amazon (which, for example, don’t sell a lot of Google products) and other discounts that seem to be Walmart-specific (at the time of writing). While prices and availability are always subject to change, here are some great Walmart deals you can buy right now.

Since 2017, Switch has been one of Nintendo’s most popular consoles of all time. And during 2020, when closed people re-engaged in video games in a big way, it was almost impossible to find one. Now the landscape has changed. The all-new Switch OLED model for 2021 is a new hard-to-obtain model, but the standard switch is easier to find. The Black Friday package, which included the free Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, is now largely sold out, but Walmart has its own new package that includes a free carrying case and a 12-month Nintendo Online subscription, worth about $ 35, for free. . Get one more of these when you can: They’re likely to sell out quickly.

This package rose to $ 40 for a while, but has dropped to $ 25 again. This Google Assistant-compatible smart display is available in two different colors (gray and blue), and this offer also deserves a free smart light with your purchase. You can use the monitor to control your home smart devices, check the weather, use a digital photo frame, and more. It’s the same price as the Lenovo Smart Clock Essential (also not available from Amazon), a model without a color display and without the included smart bulb.

Why choose between a quick K-Cup hit and a good old-fashioned drip coffee? With the Keurig K-Duo, you can enjoy either anytime you want. This model is currently out of stock on Amazon, while a similar model costs $ 51 more.

During Black Friday and Cyber ​​Monday, Quest 2’s offerings were pretty limited. The best we saw was a free $ 50 gift card at the time of purchase, but no actual price reduction. While this isn’t exactly a deal, Walmart offers the opportunity to grab one of these VR headsets for $ 100 cheaper than the next best option. These 64GB models are no longer available from most major retailers, but Walmart has had to save a lot after the Black Friday craze. Although they are technically refurbished, it is a fairly safe bet as Walmart offers the same year warranty that comes with new models. You can read the full contract description here.

The original Chromecast offered a different streaming style than the Roku or Amazon Fire Stick TV, so you can stream or “stream” content from your phone or even mirror your computer screen to your TV. However, its biggest drawback was that it lacked any kind of browsing interface. This new model with pre-loaded Google TV brings you the best of both worlds of streaming. You can still stream content from your phone or computer, or browse content conveniently from a variety of streaming services. You can even search by voice using either the remote control or any Google Assistant compatible device.

We can’t find this exact model on Amazon, and the equivalent is selling for $ 100 more.

With a Bluetooth connection, you can place the subwoofer out of sight and help create a feeling of surround sound.
