Update (11/20 10:30am): Walmart has released the full details of tomorrow’s Pre-Black Friday sale. Deals include a Playstation 4 with a free $50 gift card, a 40-inch HDTV for $115, Samsung Chromebook for $199 with a free $50 gift card, and the iPad/iPhone deals already mentioned below.

Walmart is keeping its promise to make Black Friday a monthlong sales event. We’ve already seen several doorbuster level deals from Walmart in the past week, but the big-box retailer has a couple more tricks up its sleeve.

Beginning at 8am on Friday, Walmart “will be matching or beating select Black Friday offers from top national competitors on items.” The press release is extremely vague when it comes to specific deals, but it did out one that we are especially excited for:

The included gift card brings the total effective iPad Air 2 price down to $389. Now, Target charges $10 more for the same iPad Air 2, but will beat Walmart by including a free $140 gift card. The only catch is that you may have to fight crowds or get lucky online to snag that deal. My advice is to grab whichever deal you happen to find in stock.

This sale also includes an iPhone 6 with a free $75 gift card for $179.
