  • Walmart Hi**** , If you have your items already on Layaway and would like to receive the reduced price during our Black Friday sale the item(s) would need to be deleted from the Layaway account and added back to receive the event price.

Whoever tries this has to remember they have events at different times! So, if your item is on sale for 5 hours, you have 5 hours to match it. I'd say, give your self a few hours or so and not try and pick-up at the last second!


Still don't know about the whole Layaway at Walmart thing. Maybe I'll ask tomorrow when I go to pick up some Blu's.


Guess I'll make my Walmart plans after Amazon releases whatever info they're releasing on Monday. Walmart is getting numerous questions that can be found on their Facebook page.

I've already put the games I wanted on layaway at Walmart. The layaway ad match policy is the same as regular purchases, so just go in on friday while other sales are still active and match. Only issue may be dealing with huge crowds back in layaway, but at least you won't have to worry about getting stampeded and you gaurantee your copies. Also, I'm sure some stores will say you can't do it, only stickered games, not the games in the case, blah blah blah. As always, those are just stores going against company policy. Any good store manager would take care of his customers.

Edit: Wanted to add that once they put the items back on your layaway at the lower price you can still just leave those items in layaway until Dec 14. That gives you the opportunity to price match again in the unlikely event something does go even cheaper.

That's the title I'm eyeing too. Gotta say the Ratchet and Clank collection and Sly collection are nothing to sneeze at!

Walmart Layaway for Black Friday/Brown Thursday(lol):

1. Minimum layaway total of $50.

2. Minimum $15 down for EACH item you get(easiest way to explain this). Mininum $10 or 10% down (whichever is HIGHER, PER item) + a $5 fee. The $5 goes towards your purchase, but will be returned as a gift card if cancelled.

3.The items you are interested in purchasing must be picked up during their sale hours. If an item is on sale from 12pm until 5pm, you have between those hours to get the sale price/s or you're SOL. Don't try this if you don't have a couple hours or more to be able to pick up your layaway.

4.You will be able to get the price/s adjusted to the sale price/s AS LONG AS YOU ARE THERE BETWEEN THE HOURS THAT PARTICULAR SALE IS GOING ON.

5.Layaway opens at 9am on BF.


thats what i keep hearing, but the sales person at layaway told me different, she said if the item that you put on layaway goes on sale for BF, the computer/sales person, will automaticly adjust the price to the sale price (BF price) and she also mentioned that it does not have to be on BF for the price to be adjusted when you pick up the item from layaway, i can still be a few days later, she might of actualy said until the 14th december ? but again, im going by what the person at layaway told me, and she was the main person that handled everything back there ?

To put rumors/wondering away about Layaway now/pick up later for Walmart(found this through SD):

Looking at the ad and there is no mention of a time frame as to the sales. Only lists a start time with the wording while supplies last. It shouldn't be a problem going to layaway when they re-open at 9AM on BF and picking up your stuff at the sale prices.

You know after I use up my Amazon credit I don't think I'm giving amazon any more business ever again. A lack of AC3 and Borderlands is bull.


Good luck with that. I give you a month, tops.

Cheapy-tell your people at Amazon to put some Wii U games on the sale!!! I see Epic Mickey 2 on the lightning deals list, but it appears that it is for 360 (though it doesn't specify). Would be awesome to snag that for $25 for Wii U, as well as deals on...

NSMBU, Zombi U, Ninja Gaiden, etc.

Hmmm... This makes since. Good thing Amazon has the games I want, too. I didn't think to see if layaway is open on Thanksgiving. If Amazon posts that they are matching Walmart's price on that telescope, I don't think I'll be headed to Walmart, anyway. I shall see after Amazon makes their Monday announcement.

Thought I saw an 8pm somewhere. Too many numbers!!!!!:whee:

Ok. The different Event numbers. I remember the Walmart person mentioning event numbers and I see different ones in the ad with different times. So, as long as a person is going for games, all they have to think about is getting there for the 8pm start time on Thanksgiving.

:drool:Gonna have to type up a list after I see what Amazon has to say.

I think I'm more interested in Gamefly's deals than anyone else. Of course, the Steam sale is just around the corner so not much need to go crazy. It's starting to feel like I'll just narrow down my entire purchase plans to an AC Vita, whoever has it in stock early Friday afternoon.

Look my plan is to go to walmart for Borderlands 2, on the fence about AC3 due to massive bugs, buy Hitman once it drops maybe next month?, buy Fall of Cybertron if it drops soon, and then wait for GTA 5 in spring 2013.
