 Santa's Elves Start Saving Early at Walmart


Walmart is unwrapping its first round of 2014 holiday offerings, including the low prices it's known for and its broadest assortment ever on the items customers need for gift-giving, decorating, family gatherings and every occasion in between.

Today, the retailer is offering more than 20,000 Rollbacks on items including groceries and popular brands such as Disney “Frozen," Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Samsung, and Dell. Monday, Walmart is bringing back its popular 24-hour holiday cyber savings event. 

All season long, customers can take advantage of free shipping on millions of items from Walmart.com. Free shipping includes Site-to-Store, which allows customers to order online and pick up in a local store for free; and free shipping to customers’ homes for orders totaling $50 or more. Some limitations apply. Visit Walmart.com for details.
 
Walmart has expanded its digital shelves to include 7 million items – one million more than last holiday season. Deals typically reserved for Black Friday and Cyber Monday start on Walmart.com shortly after midnight Pacific Time on Monday, Nov. 3.

Saving Catcher Expansion and New Mobile Feature
Timed for Thanksgiving meal planning, Walmart is expanding Savings Catcher to bring even more savings to the kitchen. Beginning Nov. 2, holiday turkey and ham will be eligible for Savings Catcher, giving families confidence they're getting a great price on these holiday meal essentials.**


Savings Catcher does not apply to competitors’ offers for turkey or ham that require a minimum dollar purchase to receive the featured price, or that limit the number available per customer.

In addition, Walmart has rolled out another new feature within its mobile app. With “Search My Store,” customers can search for nearly any item carried in a Walmart store and see the item’s availability at that store, its aisle location, ratings and reviews.
“Search My Store” is currently available on Android devices and expands to iPhones by mid-November.

Holiday Inspiration and Convenience
Walmart is also offering new tools and resources to help customers shop the season, including:
  • Wish List: Starting Nov. 7, children and parents can build a Toy Wish List for Santa by adding their favorite toys directly from Walmart’s digital Toy Book. Wish lists can be shared on Facebook and in email with friends and family.
  • Holiday Hub: New this year, Walmart is sharing how-to videos, product demos, seasonal recipes and other tips across multiple platforms where customers seek holiday inspiration, including Pinterest, YouTube and Walmart.com. 
  • Layaway: Customers taking advantage of Walmart’s holiday layaway with no opening fee can stretch dollars further by paying at their own pace through Dec. 15.
  • Ad Match: Walmart’s great prices are backed by its Ad Match Guarantee. Stores will match the price of any local competitor’s printed ad for an identical product.***
