As reported, Walmart has unveiled their new early Black Friday deals which will be available in-stores starting this Saturday, November 21st. Walmart says that these deals carry prices similar to Day-After-Thanksgiving sales. As we have been doing in previous weeks we are taking a closer look and analyzing the new early Walmart Black Friday deals for you to see if they are hot deals or not.

The new round of deals features toys, a 26-inch Vizio HDTV and music video game bundles from the Hero franchise. This report focuses on the Hero Game Package deals. Walmart customers who purchase these gaming packages will receive a $40 Walmart Gift Card while supplies last. This deal is not available in all States.

Below you will find the list of Band Hero, DJ Hero and Guitar Hero 5 packages offered with their prices. The closest competitor to Walmart is Amazon. In general the new Walmart early Black Friday deals are great and you really save $40 through the free gift card in most cases.
But two weeks ago Walmart also offered the Xbox 360 Arcade with a $100 gift card, which Amazon matched on the launch day of that deal.
I am betting that Amazon will once again match this Walmart Hero Gift card on Saturday.

$40 Gift Card with Hero Game Packages:
Available in-stores on Saturday 21st, while supplies last and this deal is not available in all States.

  • Band Hero - Includes drum and guitar controllers, microphone and game (ESRB: E10+)

    • PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii - $199.00 plus $40 Walmart Gift Card
      This is a great deal right now. Amazon sells the Band Hero Bundle for the same price, but offers no gift card yet.
       
    • PS2 - $179.00 plus $40 Walmart Gift Card
      The PS2 Band Hero bundle is selling for only $168.99 on Amazon. If you subtract the gift card you still save about $30.
       
  • DJ Hero - Includes turntable controller and game (ESRB: T)
    • PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii - $119.00 plus $40 Walmart Gift Card
      This is a great deal right now. Amazon sells the DJ Hero Bundle at the same price, but no gift card.
       
    • PS2 - $99.00 plus $40 Walmart Gift Card
      This is a great deal right now. Amazon sells this only for a 1c less.
       
  • Guitar Hero 5 - Includes guitar controller and game (ESRB: T)
    • PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii - $99.00 plus $40 Walmart Gift Card
      The Guitar Hero 5 qualifies for the Spend $80 and get $20 off on Amazon right now (claim code: BUY80G20, expires Nov. 21st). Still, with the Walmart deal you save $20 more.
       
    • PS2 - $89.00 plus $40 Walmart Gift Card
      This is a great deal right now. Amazon sells it for the same price.
