Walmart to Offer Free Home Shipping During Holiday Season
November 12, 2010,
BENTONVILLE, Ark.-Walmart will provide free home shipping on nearly 60,000 holiday items, with no minimum purchase requirement or subscription fees, now through Dec. 20.
Among the categories covered in this offer are furniture, home appliances, all electronics, select video games, toys, jewelry and baby products. The offer complements Walmart's Site to Store program, which provides consumers with free shipping to a Walmart store for tens of thousands of online products. A Walmart statement said the two programs combined should save shoppers about $25 million during the holiday season.
Eligible items will be shipped for free via standard shipping, and will be delivered to customers within three to five business days after the order is processed. Return shipping will also be free, or customers can return online orders to a local Walmart store.
