WALMART staff have shared the exact time you should shop if you want to get the best deal on holiday items.
While the multinational retail organization is known for its low prices and weekly savings, it’s worth heeding these essential shopping tips known only to company insiders.
According to a list of Walmart money-saving tips compiled by Best Life, there’s an ideal time to start shopping for vacation-themed items.
Walmart store associates know that holiday items are automatically discounted after a holiday.
The Krazy Coupon Lady also reveals why you can spend less money when shopping after the holiday.
The website states: “Holiday clearances provide more than enough reasons to keep the celebrations going.
“Because, for the most part, stores like Walmart, Target, Macy’s, Walgreens and Rite Aid are giving deep discounts on any holiday items that are still in stock.
“Post-holiday deals typically include decorations, candy, gifts and accessories at 50-70 percent off — and the discounts don’t stop there.”
The best deals usually come right after the holidays like Christmas, Halloween, Easter and Valentine’s Day.
According to the Krazy Coupon Lady, December 26th marks the in-store and online Christmas clearance for Walmart.
The first discount starts at 50 percent off and the second at 75 percent off is valid between December 31st and January 10th.
For more discount items, the final discount will take place around January 11th, with a Christmas clearance reaching up to 90 percent.
Walmart’s markdown system
Walmart’s markdown system is described by Best Life as “insidious,” but a breakdown of the method helps shoppers find the lowest prices.
Tiphero lists the meaning behind Walmart’s codes, noting that items with prices ending in “7” — like “$__._7” — are the original price.
Items ending in “5” follow the first markdown and items ending in “1” or “0” represent the last markdown.
Free two-day shipping
Luckily, all Walmart shoppers — no membership required — can get free two-day shipping.
To be eligible for free shipping, buyers must spend $35 or more.
Meanwhile, a former Walmart employee has revealed there’s an easy way to bypass the long lines.
