We're Helping Customers (and Associates!) Get an Early Start on Holiday Shopping

Let's make the most of this year’s shortened holiday season by offering customers more savings, more ways to shop, more top gifts to shop for and more fun in stores than ever before.


“Customers count on Walmart for the best prices every day, and the holiday season is no exception. Our price leadership is strong, and growing, and we’re excited to deliver savings for all of our holiday shoppers,” said Steve Bratspies, Executive Vice President and Chief Merchandising Officer, Walmart U.S. “Saving our customers time is also paramount at this time of year, especially with fewer days to get ready for big family meals, parties and gift giving. We’re making sure this season is the easiest yet for our customers with nine tech-enabled ways to shop for everyone on their list – when and how they want.” 

More Savings

Beginning Oct. 25 at midnight we are launching holiday savings – earlier than ever – with our Early Deals Drop on Walmart.com. Get a jumpstart on holiday shopping with deals on top items in electronics, gaming, toys, home and sporting goods while supplies last. Some top deals include:

  • BouncePro 7-Foot My First Trampoline for $99 (a $25 savings)

In addition, Walmart.com will offer Deal Drops throughout the season for extra savings on some of the hottest holiday items. 

More Shopping Conveniences

We're making it easier than ever to shop for everyone on your list with the introduction of new features and expanded shopping services. We're offering nine ways to shop – more than ever before – to help customers save time and money, including:

Gift Finder
New this year, customers can search for gifts on Walmart.com with Gift Finder, which provides gift options for 40 different types of gift recipients. Customers provide information based on the recipient and their price range and are served up personalized recommendations so they can choose the best gift for anyone on their list, even the hardest to shop for.

Scannable Toy Catalog
For the first time, customers with iOS devices can use their phones to shop for the hottest toys of the season right from the pages of our seasonal toy catalog. Dropping Nov. 1, this new digitized experience lets customers scan and shop hundreds of toys, including more than 150 exclusives, through the Walmart app.

Free NextDay Delivery*
New this holiday season, customers can order from up to hundreds of thousands of eligible items and have them delivered to their house the very next day without a membership fee.
*Exclusions may apply during peak days.


Expanded Check Out With Me
Check Out With Me is now available in all Walmart Supercenters, allowing customers to avoid lines at the register and check out with an associate right where they are shopping, like in Santaland in the garden center, the electronics department or near the registers.


Expanded DotCom Store
The DotCom Store, which is also now available in all Walmart Supercenters, lets customers work with associates to place an online order right from the store if the customer cannot find the item they’re shopping for. Items are then sent directly to the customer’s home or to their nearest Walmart store for Pickup. 

“This season, we are offering the ultimate in convenience for customers with new and existing ways to shop, so customers can prep for the season whenever and however they want.”
— Ashley Buchanan, Executive Vice President & Chief Merchandising Officer, Walmart U.S. eCommerce.

Walmart customers can also look forward to more announcements in the coming weeks about how they can find the perfect toys in stores and on Walmart.com this season.

Retailtainment Events Throughout the Season

Beginning Nov. 2, we are taking our trademark in-store fun up a notch by offering retailtainment events throughout the holiday season. Over the next few weeks, we'll host themed events from some of the year’s hottest movies, including Pokémon and Star Wars on Nov. 16-17 and Frozen 2 on Nov. 23-24.

And, of course, no holiday season is complete without a visit from Santa, who will make stops at Walmart stores nationwide on Nov. 9 and Dec. 7.
