Amazon Prime Day isn’t just an opportunity for Amazon to flex its muscles. Its major competitors are also getting in on the action, and Walmart has jumped into the fray with its Walmart Plus Week one day before sale event Official start of Prime Day on July 11. We’ve found plenty of great Walmart deals on many of our favorite TVs, soundbars, wireless speakers, and more.
Note: Currently, offers are only online for Walmart Plus Members until 11:59 a.m. ET on July 11. After that, anyone can get in on the action. Contrary to target circleit’s not free to join. It usually costs $98 a year, but Walmart has a promotion right now that drops the price to $49 for your first year. It includes perks like a bundled Paramount+ subscription, free shipping on orders over $35 (some products have no minimum order), and more.
We test products throughout the year and select these offers. Products that are sold out or no longer on promotion at the time of publication will be
crossed out. We’ll be updating this guide throughout Prime Day.

This TV is currently our best recommendation for most people. It supports all major HDR (High Dynamic Range) formats and can handle up to 120fps while gaming. The downside (and it might not really be a downside) is that TCL has replaced its excellent built-in Roku interface for Google TV, which looks good and has all the apps you could want but is a bit slower.
TVs with OLED panels have pixels that act as their own backlight. These pixels have the ability to fade out, giving you perfect black levels, darker than a typical LED display. Parker Hall, associate editor of WIRED, says the C2’s 4K OLED display is “utterly gorgeous” and notes that it has some of the lowest input lag of any TV he’s ever seen. If you are a gamer, this is good news for you: it handles games up to 120Hz in 4K.
The Chromecast with Google TV (8/10, WIRED recommends) comes with a well-designed interface that allows you to watch channels directly on your TV without having to stream it from another device. There is also a remote control. It has almost every app you could want, and yes, you can still stream content from your phone or laptop if you prefer.
Roku is our favorite streaming service. The interface is fast and fast, it’s easy to use, and there are no nasty attempts to push particular channels on the viewer (cough, looking at you, Amazon). This is the slightly cheaper version of our favorite in our Guide to the best 4K streaming devices. It doesn’t come with hands-free voice control in its remote, but it’s razor-sharp and has good range on its wireless remote.
For a soundbar without an included subwoofer, the M-Series 2.1 has surprisingly robust bass. It’s our go-to recommendation for a budget soundbar, as it combines rich sound and sleek design at an affordable price. There is an HDMI ARC connection that allows your TV remote to control the volume. You can even use its Bluetooth connection to stream music.
Small as a hockey puck, you can take the Clip 4 virtually anywhere. Simply use the carabiner to attach it to your day hike pack, bike handlebars, or folding chair on the way to the beach. It’s also waterproof, so you don’t have to sweat about pool water, rain or, well, sweat.
This Sony speaker three speakers pull sound all around your room rather than streaming sound directly into your ears like most Bluetooth speakers. It also comes with Google Assistant and Alexa, plus Wi-Fi support, so you can shout your commands at it too.
A big part of why the Nest Doorbell came second in our Guide to the best video doorbells was the price. As long as this deal lasts, that won’t be a problem. This version runs on batteries rather than being hardwired directly into your home’s electrical system. You need to download the Google Home app, but if you want to keep 30 days of video history and smart alerts, you need to subscribe to Nest Aware, which costs $6 per month. Expect around a month of use between charges. The field of view isn’t the widest, but it’s wide enough and its night vision delivers solid video quality.
Reduce your cooling and heating bill with a thermostat that learns your habits so you can lower the HVAC when you’re not home. You can also control it manually through the Google Home app. Like any smart thermostat, your home must have a central heating and/or cooling system for the Nest Thermostat to integrate.
The 7-inch screen Nest Hub (7/10, WIRED recommends) is a solid option if you don’t need (or want) the Nest Hub Max’s built-in camera. You still get all the same Google Assistant features, plus sleep tracking that will digest your sleep data (if you sleep close enough). It also supports gestures, so you can control many features (like music playback) with simple hand movements. The 10 inch Nest Hub Max is also on sale for $190 ($40 off).
Video quality from the Nest Cam is impressive, with HDR and 1080p resolution at 30fps; as soon as it gets dark, the night vision is triggered. There’s also two-way audio, two-factor authentication and pinpoint detection to alert you to people, animals and vehicles. Through the Google Home app, you can control camera settings and view the video feed. Unless you’re paying $6 a month for a Nest Aware subscription, you’re limited to three hours of history. Upgrading to Nest Aware gives you 30 days of event video history and familiar face alerts. However, it lacks a privacy shutter.
