Walmart Gift Card Giveaway {And Christmas Sale Info}

Walmart Offers its Lowest Prices of the Season during the “BIG Christmas Event”


Christmas is almost here! Are you ready? According to the National Retail Federation, as of the second week in December, the average person has completed only 46.5 percent of their shopping. I would say I am only half done with mine. I still need stocking stuffers, Sinisa’s gifts and a few things for the boys. Then there’s still a couple family members to buy for. I better get to shopping!

Thankfully Walmart is holding the “BIG Christmas Event” geared specifically for the millions of last-minute shoppers. Starting at 8 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 17, Walmart’s “BIG Christmas Event” will offer its lowest prices of the season on toys, games, electronics, bikes and more. In addition, is giving customers an extra day to shop online by extending its shipping deadlines. Walmart’s holiday shipping options not only ensure gifts arrive in time for Christmas, but they save people money!

Take a look at some of the great sales:

  • Vizio® 3D Blu-rayTM Player with Built-in WiFi – $98
  • Select Games for Xbox 360®, Nintendo® WiiTM, and PS3® Games – $39.96 each
