10/24/2011 02:09:43 PM Eastern

Bentonville, Ark. - Walmart has
announced a Christmas Price Guarantee program that will reimburse Walmart
customers who buy a product at the chain and later see that same product
advertised for less somewhere else.

The guarantee is valid on
purchases made Nov. 1 through Dec. 25 on identical items (the same brand, size,
color, quantity, grade and model number) that are currently available at
competitor's stores located within the same local market as a particular
Walmart store.

To apply for the Christmas Price
Guarantee, customers need to bring in their original Walmart cash register
receipt and the local competitor's current printed ad to Walmart's Customer
Service desk. Once validated, a gift card for the difference will be issued.
Items placed on layaway will also be eligible for the Christmas Price
Guarantee.

Additional holiday plans
announced by the retailer include:

• no interest on purchases made
between Nov. 1 and Dec. 25 if paid in full within six months of purchase in
store or on Walmart.com with a Walmart credit card;

• free shipping on any Walmart.com
product more than $45 via the chain's Site to Store, Pick Up Today, FedEx Site
to Store and Home Free shipping programs;

• a Christmas
Layaway program
for toys and electronic gifts with a retail price of $15 and up,
through Dec. 16; and

• an extension of the chain's Gas
Rollback program through Dec. 24, which gives customers a 10 cent discount on
each gallon of gas or diesel fuel purchased at participating Murphy USA or
Walmart stations.

In addition, Walmart stores
across the U.S. will donate more than $10 million to community organizations
this holiday season, the company said.

"The greatest gift we can give
our customers this holiday is great low prices on the things they want most,"
explained Duncan Mac Naughton, chief merchandising officer, Walmart U.S. "Walmart
is easing shopping stress this Christmas by allowing customers to shop when and
how they want, all while guaranteeing low prices through the entire holiday
season. We're confident Walmart will have fantastic prices on a wide assortment
of gifts from electronics to toys, so customers can shop early and spend the
holiday enjoying time with their families."
