Walmart Announces More Big Savings This Weekend on the Hottest Toys and Electronics

Savings Up to $50 on Top Toys and Electronics, including $100 gift cards in Electronics.

Additional savings up to 50 percent on Select Apparel and Home Items.

BENTONVILLE, Ark. Dec. 15, 2010 – Just in time for the last Holiday shopping weekend, Walmart announces its “Toys and More” event with big savings on top toys and electronics, as well as select home appliances and apparel. Beginning on Friday, Dec. 171, Walmart stores will offer savings up to $50 on many top toys and electronics, including gift cards2 ranging up to $100 on electronics. Customers can also save up to 50 percent on select cookware and appliances.

The weekend before Christmas is anticipated to be Walmart’s busiest shopping weekend of the holiday season3. According to a recent shopper survey from Discover Financial Services 4, toys and apparel are among the top gifts shoppers plan to give this holiday season while electronics represent the number one gift consumers would like to receive. In addition, a recent survey conducted by NPD Group, found that 34 percent of consumers plan to purchase gift cards this holiday season5. Walmart’s upcoming weekend savings event gives customers the chance to save on gifts they want and receive bonus Walmart gift cards that can be used for future purchases or given as a gift to others. Walmart stores will also continue to match the price of any local competitor’s printed ad for an identical product right at the register.

“Customers responded so well to our day after Thanksgiving event that we’re offering them another big opportunity to enjoy similar savings on gifts still on their shopping lists,” said Gary Severson, senior vice president of Entertainment, Walmart U.S. “We’re kicking off the final weekend before Christmas with savings on something for everyone in the family and to help customers save even more, we’ll continue to price match competitors’ ads right at the checkout register in our stores.”
