Attention Walmart shoppers! Walmart wants to make sure that you get all of the electronics on your holiday wishlist, and maybe even a few extras that you didn’t budget.
That’s right; you could actually end up with a few extra bucks to spend. The mega-retailer is offering to match the price of its competitors, with its Christmas Price Guarantee.
That means once you buy that HDTV, Blu-ray player or other electronic device at Walmart, feel free to keep bargain shopping. If you find that purchased item for less elsewhere, you don’t have to be a Scrooge about it; Walmart will refund you the difference.
Just know that the item needs to be identical, all the way down to the size and color.
Don’t start running out to stores just yet. The Christmas Price Guarantee is only valid on purchases made from November 1 through December 25.
To get the guarantee, you’ll need to go into Walmart with your original receipt, as well as the competitor’s printed ad. Once they check everything out, they will issue you a Walmart gift card for the difference.
Walmart also plans to offer Christmas Layaway, as well as free shipping specials, and free shipping via Site to Store.
“The greatest gift we can give our customers this holiday is great low prices on the things they want most,” explained Duncan Mac Naughton, chief merchandising officer for Walmart U.S. “Walmart is easing shopping stress this Christmas by allowing customers to shop when and how they want, all while guaranteeing low prices through the entire holiday season.”
If you’re already plotting and scheming your holiday shopping, you can find out more about this offer in the video below.
