Wal-Mart Christmas Layaway is Back

submitted on August 21, 2012 by siggy38 in "Stores / Merchants"

Walmart is bringing back layaway a month early, available Sept. 16 through Dec. 14. Giving shoppers more time to pay for holiday gifts, and will refund the $15 fee with a gift card once payments are completed.

New layaway features at Walmart include:

An expanded 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.
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.

    When Walmart did away w/the layaway in general, I think that is the WORST mistake they made. I can only wonder how it affected sales throughout the year.

    Walmart has now lowered their Layaway fee from $15 to $5. Customers who make their final payment will receive a refund of the $5 fee on a Walmart gift card.

    The fee to open up a layaway account will now be $5 instead of $15, the world's largest retailer said Tuesday.

    Wal-Mart says the move wasn't in response to the Toys R Us announcement, but rather in reaction to customer feedback on its Facebook (FB) page since announcing last month its plans to bring back its layaway program for the Christmas season. The new program, which starts Sept. 16 and runs through Dec. 14, will last a month longer than last year's and will include more items than the toys and electronics featured last year.
