I love holiday shopping at Walmart! I can buy in confidence, knowing that I'm getting the best and lowest prices. Having one of the most anticipated Black Friday sales ads each year, Walmart is well known for being one of the best stores to get phenomenal deals. Over 20,000 Rollbacks on items in-store and online have been released early this season. The savings are huge and include discounts on brands like Disney's Frozen, Dell and Samsung. There's even free shipping on millions of items. Here’s what you need to know to save the most this shopping season:

1. Free holiday shipping

Have you ever found a great deal on something, and the minute you added shipping costs, it killed the deal? This holiday season, Walmart is offering free shipping on orders totaling $50 or more. Customers may also select free ship-to-store; meaning the item will be sent to the store location of your choice and you then pick it up there without any shipping costs. When you place your order, the item will be shipped on the same day you order it. Believe me, Walmart has fast shipping—especially when it’s from their warehouse to their stores. You’ll even get an email notification when the order is ready to be picked up!

  • Free shipping to store.
  • Free shipping directly to your home on orders of $50 or more.
  • Free same day pickup at your local store, while supplies last.
  • Free shipping on Walmart's top 100 gifts. Check out the list of items here.

2. New Wish List option

Walmart has launched a new Wish List option for their Digital Toy Book. This offers kids a chance to create a wish list for Santa. That same list can be shared with family and friends through email and Facebook.

In addition, Walmart brings back their Top 20 Toys list. This list is compiled by asking children ages 18 months to 12 years to select their favorite toys. This gives grandmas, aunts and family friends good ideas as to what to purchase those special little ones in their lives.

3. Savings Catcher

Savings Catcher, the new price matching tool exclusive to Walmart, expands products to include turkey and ham. That means, if you purchase a turkey and/or a ham at Walmart, Savings Catcher will run a comparison with local competitors! If a lower price is found, Walmart will issue the cost difference to you in an eGift card.

4. Holiday layaway

Have you ever found the perfect gift and are just that short of having the full amount to purchase it? Layaway is available in stores this holiday season through December 15, 2014. The best part is that there is no opening fee and all you need is a down payment of $10.00 or 10%—whichever is greater!

The rules

  • Minimums: Individual items must be $15 or greater. Total purchases must be $50 or greater.
  • Terms: Final payment and pickup must be made on or before December 15th at the same store layaway was initiated (or order will be canceled).
  • Cancellation: If account is canceled, items will be returned to inventory. Down payment and payments made will be refunded, less a $10 cancellation fee.
  • Returns: Walmart Returns Policy applies to all layaway transactions.

5. Ad Matching

At Walmart, this is huge! Walmart's prices are backed by its Ad Match Guarantee. With so much information about stores and sales, I get overwhelmed easily. Walmart makes my life easier. The store will match the price of any local competitor's printed ad for an identical product. We think Walmart's Ad Match policy is one of the best! Get more information here.

6. New "Search My Store" feature on the Walmart app

I love using the Walmart app. Now there's a new feature "Search My Store." I can search for almost any item that is carried by Walmart. It even tells me what aisle the item is in! My husband loves that we can check ratings and reviews so that we know we're buying a quality product. This is available in both Android and iPhone devices.

7. Early Black Friday launch

Walmart is one of the first retailers to start offering their Black Friday deals. One of the hottest sales released has been the Sceptre 32" LED HDTV. It was originally priced at $229.99, so this new price of $168.00 is hot! There are more deals being released early that are typically reserved for Black Friday.
