After good response last year, Walmart is bringing back the layaway option for the holidays. And with more perks.
Starting Sept. 16 through Dec. 14, customers will be able to take advantage of the retail giant’s layaway plan. That’s about a month earlier than last year, when layaway wasn’t available until Oct. 17.
Here’s an overview of the new features available through Walmart’s layaway services for the holiday season:
• 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 Aug. 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.
