Walmart vs Target – read this before holiday shopping!
There seems to be some healthy competition brewing between two major chain stores this year, and that means money savings for us!
Walmart has been offering free two-day shipping with $35 order for a while now, but they are also ramping up efforts to make in-store shopping easier! If you haven’t noticed already, Walmart has orange markers around the stores with number and letter combinations. This is part of the digital map that they are rolling out to make it easier to locate items in the store! Also, they are going to start a new “Checkout with Me” feature that will allow customers to pay in the department where they are shopping … and avoid the checkout lines! Walmart also offers free in-store pickup when ordering online, so this also saves shipping fees.
And while Target has also been offering free shipping on $35 or more, they have upped the ante (one might say) to try to pull in savvy shoppers like us! Target has announced that they will be offering free shipping on all online purchases with no minimum (there may be exceptions) during the holiday shopping season which will run from November 1st through December 22nd. How awesome is that!
As to how this benefits you depends on if you like in store or online shopping. Be sure to keep a lookout for future deals available with these offers.
