$98 HD DVD player at Walmart this Friday

With the holiday season fast approaching, Walmart has announced plans for “Secret In-Store Specials”, 3 weeks in advance of the highly anticipated Black Friday shopping bonanza. This “secret” sale will start on 8AM and last until noon on Friday, November 2nd.

Details on an Acer laptop were leaked approximately 1 week ago, but other items were shrouded in mystery, set to be unveiled as of today. Now, those additional products have been revealed and the “secret” sale details can be found on the Walmart Holiday website.


$98.87 for a Toshiba HD-A2 HD DVD player!

A brand name HD DVD player for less than a hundred bucks? You better believe it! But will this player be available for the 5 free HD DVD mail-in offer? Details are unclear at this time.

As you can see from the image above, Walmart will also have select HD DVD’s on sale for $14.96 each. Definitely a bargain on HD movie titles. Or if you’re looking for a new HDTV, check out the Samsung 50″ plasma that will be on sale for $998. That is certainly a great price for a 50″ plasma. With all these promos going on, I’m going to try my best to get over to Walmart tomorrow morning. Will you be going?

Update: Bestbuy has the Toshiba HD-A2 priced at $99 as of today! They are currently sold out online, but you can still find the player available at some brick & mortar stores.
