About that Walmart layaway program…
Top toys are on the shelves just in time for the retailer’s layaway program, which kicks off this Sunday.
If a customer puts a toy on layaway and Walmart rolls back the price later in the season, Walmart will honor the rolled-back price if it is in effect at the time of the final payment. When the layaway transaction is completed, the $5 open layaway fee will be refunded in the form of a Walmart gift card.
Do you ever take advantage of layaway? Stay tuned for more Hot Holiday Toys for 2012!
