Walmart Launches Free Layaway


Walmart has introduced free layaway with no opening fee. Beginning Sept. 13 through Dec. 13, layaway will kick off the retailer’s official start to the holiday season.

Walmart’s free layaway means no opening fees, no gift-card reimbursements, just free. Eligible layaway items include electronics, toys, jewelry, small appliances and select sporting goods. And new in 2013 are infant toys and automotive electronics such as speakers and stereos.Walmart Facebook fans will enjoy a two-day head start this year with access to layaway on
Sept. 11 and 12.

Customers can start a layaway account in any Walmart Supercenter or Walmart store (not including Neighborhood Markets) by visiting the Services Desk. Once a layaway account is opened, customers can make payments at any register in that store between Sept. 13 and Dec. 13, 2013. Walmart will also send payment reminders and status updates to customers via email. In addition, for added convenience in purchasing select large items, including ride-on vehicles, basketball goals and trampolines, Walmart is introducing new “tear pad” slips that customers can bring to the Services Desk – alleviating the need to carry select bulky items to the counter.

Layaway customers can also take advantage of Walmart’s Ad Match Guarantee. That means Walmart will match the price of any local competitor’s printed ad for an identical item at the Services Desk. This includes layaway items throughout the holiday season.
