Walmart Holiday Layaway Program

Walmart Holiday Layaway Program | 2012

It’s that time of year again where many of can not believe that we have to start thinking about shopping for the Holidays again!  I have some really exciting news for you that I think is going to really help a lot of people make sure they are getting what they are looking for.  Walmart has just released the Walmart Holiday Layaway Program for 2012 which will start earlier this year on September 16th and end December 14th.

Walmart has been working with major brands to secure higher quantities of items by September 16th to make sure they are meeting the customer demands.

I also received information regarding the Walmart Price Match Policy and it seems at this point it is going to stay the same through Black Friday and into the Holiday Season. Remember though, the Black Friday sales will not be eligible for layaway.

Here are some more details regarding the Walmart Holiday Layaway Program:

  • Walmart has expanded their list of eligible categories, including small home appliances and select sporting goods such as basketball goals, trampolines and large exercise equipment. Customers can also use layaway for a broad selection of electronics, toys and jewelry.
  • Added Feature: Early layaway access for shoppers who like their local Walmart store on Facebook. Customers simply need to sign up on their local Walmart Facebook page beginning August 28 to be able to start their layaway two days early on Sept. 14.
  • A full refund of the layaway open fee ($15) given on a Walmart gift card for customers who make their final payment.

So below is how the program works:

  • A down payment of 10 percent or $10, whichever is greater, is required and is applied to the purchase.
  • Individual items must be priced $15 or more, and the total layaway purchase must be at least $50.
  • If the order is cancelled or not paid in full, the open fee is not refunded; however, no additional cancellation fee will be charged.
