Walmart Announces the Return of Layaway And The 25 Hottest Toys Of The Season!
It’s already getting close to the Holiday season and Walmart has just announced new info about their Holiday Layaway program and the 25 Hottest Toys of the season!
Walmart’s layaway program begins Sept. 2 allowing customers to get a head start on holiday shopping. This popular servce offers customers the opportunity to stay on budget, keep gifts hidden until the holidays or pay over time. Customers can find all of the top toys available to reserve through the layaway program, along with thousands of other items in Walmart stores.
There is no opening fee for customers to start a layaway account and they only need to put down 10% (or $10, whichever is greater). Walmart has kept its minimum threshold again this year. Customers can put items as low as $10 on layaway with a $50 minimum basket. Customers have until Dec. 12 to pay off their account.
