Walmart’s Layaway is BACK! 🛍
Starting August 31st and running through December 10th, 2018, Walmart stores are offering their convenient Layaway plan for in-store purchases, perfect for all of your holiday shopping!
Plus, you don’t have to use credit cards, and there are NO interest payments on your purchases! However, note that Layaway is not offered online and is available for in-store purchases only.
How do I start a Layaway?
To initiate a Layaway, simply bring the item (or the “tear pad” ticket for large and heavy items) to the Pickup Desk or in Lawn & Garden at your store. There’s NO opening fee required for a Layaway!
Then, all you need to do is make a small down-payment of $10, or 10%, whichever is greater. Note that individual Layaway items must cost $10 or more and total purchases must be $50 or greater. You can even make payments ANY time on your Layaway at ANY register in the store.
The final payment and pickup must be made before the last day of Layaway at the same store where it was initiated, otherwise the account will be canceled. If your Layaway account is canceled, items will be returned to inventory and any down-payment and payments made will be refunded, less a $10 cancellation fee (does not apply in Maryland, Ohio, Rhode Island, or Washington, D.C.).
NOTE: Layaway is not available on Thursday, November 22nd, 2018 (Thanksgiving day).

- Small Appliances
- Large Furniture
