Walmart has created a range of holiday offerings, all designed to help shoppers, including:

  • Christmas Price Guarantee: Here’s how it works: If a customer buys an eligible product at Walmart anytime between Nov. 1 and Dec. 25, and then finds that same product advertised for less at another store, Walmart will give the customer a gift card for the difference through Dec. 25. Walmart’s Christmas Price Guarantee is valid on purchases of identical items (the same brand, size, color, quantity, grade and model number) that are currently available at competitor’s stores located within the same local market as a particular Walmart store.
     
  • Holiday Credit Offer: Shoppers can receive no interest if paid in full within six months on every purchase, every day in November and December 2011, in store or on Walmart.com with your Walmart® Credit Card. With no minimum dollar amount required, customers can buy the gifts they want from any department on any product in the store or at Walmart.com.
     
  • More Ways to Save on Shipping: Nearly 95% of Walmart.com products – including hundreds of thousands of electronics, home furnishings, apparel, beauty products, diapers, sporting goods and more – are now eligible for free shipping via Site to Store, Pick Up Today, FedEx Site to Store and Home Free shipping programs. With Home Free, customers can ship any apparel and consumables order over $45 for free direct to their home.
     
  • Walmart’s Christmas Layaway program enables customers to make payments on purchases in varying amounts when they want through Dec. 16. Toys and electronic gifts with a retail price of $15or more are eligible, including dozens of toys on Rollback to $15.
     
  • Save Money on Gas: The Gas Rollback has been extended through Dec. 24, and is available at participating Murphy stations at more than 1,000 Supercenters and 10 Walmart stations. This program gives customers a $0.10 discount on each gallon of gas or diesel fuel purchased at participating Murphy USA or Walmart stations.
