Walmart’s Holiday Sales Arrive Early With a Big Discount on a Farberware Air Fryer

Before you’re even ready to put out your Halloween candy, Walmart has swooped in with a bunch of early Black Friday-style deals on electronics and kitchen appliances. One of the most impressive sales so far is on a 3.2-quart Farberware air fryer, which has been knocked down from $69 to $39. You can check it out here.

The 3.2-quart model fits up to two pounds of food in it, and it’s best used for one to three people. The model itself comes with a digital interface, designed for easy use, and has eight preprogrammed cooking options. You can also precisely adjust the cooking time and temperature on your own using the digital touchscreen.

Air fryers have been growing in popularity over the past few years, due to the fact that they require far less oil than traditional deep frying while retaining much of the flavor. The key is that the devices rely on rapid heated air circulation to crisp the food, rather than simply submerging it in high-calorie oils. It's generally considered to be a far healthier alternative.

The other big deals going on at Walmart include a 55-inch Vizio smart TV knocked down from $498 to $398 and an Apple iPad (6th Gen) discounted from $429 to $299.

This unique piece of jewelry integrates the female symbol into the necklace's design to spell out "vote," and is available in silver or brass. But this 16-inch necklace won’t just show off your appreciation for suffragists of the past, because $5 from your purchase will go to the League of Women Voters (LWV) to help women today.

Founded in 1920 by women’s rights activist and suffragette Carrie Chapman Catt, the LWV works to help people register to vote and provides voters with pertinent information about elections. Since its inception, the LWV has been instrumental in many voters' rights initiatives, like launching VOTE411.org, which informs people about their polling places and assists with their registration status.

If you want a fun way to learn more about the most instrumental figures behind the women's suffrage movement, check out this 500-piece Votes for Women puzzle from UncommonGoods, featuring artwork of trailblazers like Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Sojourner Truth, and more.
