One way Walmart is stepping up its Black Friday game is to offer even more One-Hour, In-stock Guarantees, doorbusters the retailer promises won’t sell out. If you’re in line during the first hour an item goes on sale, you can purchase a voucher good for the product at the advertised price, even if the store runs out of stock. You might be able to pick up the item later that night, or, have the item delivered before Christmas. While last year only saw three deals like this, there are over 20 this year.

The Emerson 50" 1080p LED-Backlit HDTV for $288 is the door-busting HDTV deal at Walmart this year. This 3rd tier manufacturer set won’t come with fancy "smart" features, but at this size, it’s one of the best values.
