In terms of holiday gifts for the little WalletHub, Stage and Belk said the best deals on toys, while Best Buy and Walmart had the best deals on video games.
WalletHub found average discounts on Walmart and Target were lower than many others: 30 percent and 35 percent respectively. But the discounts were not as low as other popular retailers like Big Lots, Sam's Club and Ace Hardware, whose discounts were over 20 percent.
WalletHub's index is a useful tool for planning Black Friday shopping, but if customers are looking for a Specific Item, they should be sure to check if specific retailers offer offers.
