As far as big retailers are concerned, Walmart's Cyber Monday sales are among the easiest to shop. Look for its Cyber Week deals to hang around for weeks, and don't forget to check for the return of some Black Friday deals, as well!

Below, we cover everything you need to know to shop the Cyber Monday deals at Walmart.

Will a Walmart Cyber Monday Ad Be Released?

Surprisingly, Walmart may not put out a Cyber Monday ad this year. In 2018, the store didn't release an official ad, although they announced some of their upcoming Cyber Monday deals on Black Friday.

When Does the Walmart Cyber Monday Sale Start and End?

In 2018, the store's deals went live at 12 am ET on Cyber Monday. We expect a repeat this year. New deals should continue to pop up all week, and some will likely still be available the following week. Don't get too relaxed, though — some of the best deals sell out quickly, so it's best to jump on the items you want.

How Do Walmart Black Friday and Cyber Monday Deals Differ?

The biggest difference with Walmart's Cyber Monday event is probably the lack of an official ad and doorbuster deals. Almost all deals will be available online, so don't kick off your bunny slippers. You'll need to stay up late to catch the beginning of the Cyber Monday sale, though — it usually kicks off at 12 am, while Walmart's Black Friday sale sometimes starts earlier in the evening.

When Is the Best Time to Shop?

During Cyber Week last year, we listed the most deals for Walmart on Cyber Monday itself and the Friday after it. Cyber Monday actually beat out Thanksgiving and Black Friday in the number of Staff Pick deals we listed! (Staff Picks are offers we consider to be the "best of the best.") Tuesday was also a heavy day for deals, with about half as many Staff Picks as Cyber Monday.

We actually listed more Staff Pick deals for Walmart on Cyber Monday than we did on Thanksgiving and Black Friday!

If you miss a great deal on Black Friday, stay alert; Walmart has been known to bring back some of its deals on Cyber Monday.

All in all, Cyber Week is a great time for deals at Walmart. During Cyber Week 2018, we listed about the same number of deals overall as during Black Friday week, and we actually listed more Staff Pick deals from Walmart during Cyber Week.

What Walmart Cyber Monday Deals Will Be Available?

What won't be on sale at Walmart? Still, some categories will see better (and more) deals than others. During Cyber Week, we'd watch home goods, toys, and TV and electronics deals.

In 2018, we saw plenty of TV deals, including a Komodo 55" 4K TV for $180, which was the lowest price we'd seen for a 55" 4K TV. We also saw a few great electronics deals, like a bundle with a Google Home Mini, Google Home Hub, and $10 Vudu movie credit for just $99.

Walmart didn't slack on home deals either, with click-worthy sales on everything from furniture to kitchen essentials like coffee makers and Instant Pots.

You should also look for a plethora of toy deals. In 2018, we listed more than 25 Staff Pick toy deals from Walmart during Cyber Week — the most of any store. Whether you're looking to bag LEGO, Nerf, or Little Tikes products, Walmart will have sales for you.

Tips for Shopping Walmart Cyber Monday Sales

To save on the best Walmart deals during Cyber Week, you may need to rely on in-store pickup. Walmart provides free 2-day shipping — and sometimes NextDay delivery — on orders over $35, but items under that amount incur a shipping charge. You can avoid that cost most of the time by opting for pickup where it's available.

As long as you're mindful of extra fees, Walmart's Cyber Monday (and Cyber Week) sales can be easier to shop than other retailers' sales. They'll begin early, and many of the deals will be available throughout Cyber Week, or even beyond.
