Amazon is about to unleash its Black Friday in July sales event for the second year in a row after last year’s sale generated even more revenue than Amazon’s actual Black Friday sale. Competitors are scrambling to compete with the retailer, of course, with Walmart preparing a special shopping event of its own. More →
Walmart has been trialing a rival service to the free shipping part of Amazon Prime for a while, but ShippingPass is finally ready for prime time.
The service costs $49 a year, in return for which you get unlimited free two-day shipping. It’s half the price of Amazon’s $99 a year Prime, but it also doesn’t come with all the bells, whistles, and free streaming services that Prime members get access to.
Forget about going to Walmart to pick up your groceries! Soon, the groceries will be coming to your door with an Uber or a Lyft. These are Walmart’s “convenient new ways” that help you shop easier than ever. More →
One of the advantages Amazon has over its competitors is the Amazon Prime service. Among the many perks Amazon Prime has to offer is speedy free two-day shipping, which is a good enough reason to subscribe to the service if you shop online regularly.
Walmart has in the past experimented with its own Prime-like subscription service that offered customers three-day free shipping for $50 a year. Now, Walmart is ready to up its game and challenge Amazon with an upgraded ShippingPass program. More →
The US is rolling out chip-enabled credit cards nationwide, but the more fraud-resistant technology still relies on people using signatures. That’s a dumb security measure — heck, not really a security measure at all — that makes fraud easier, and Walmart wants to do something about it. Even though forcing PINs would make transactions far more secure, Visa is saying no.
The rest of the world uses Chip-and-PIN to verify card transactions in stores. It’s much the same as how chip transactions work in the US right now, only rather than drawing a meaningless scrawl on a receipt, customers enter a unique four-digit PIN to prove that they own the card.
Signatures are effectively meaningless — they’re only useful when you’re making a chargeback against fraud later, and provide no on-the-spot security. It’s one of the reasons the US accounts for 72 percent of credit card fraud worldwide.
The Galaxy S7 is Samsung’s best phone ever, but it doesn’t come cheap. The good news is you don’t have to pay for it all at once and there are plenty of buying options for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge out there. Walmart currently offers a $150 discount on the Galaxy S7, but Best Buy’s got an even better deal for you. The retailer will give you a $200 gift card for any working smartphone, which is valid towards an on-contract Galaxy S7 purchase. The company said that customers who are on installment billing plans can also get the $200 gift card as long as they trade in a smartphone.
For many existing iPhone users, the recently introduced iPhone SE has been a long time coming. While many people undoubtedly love the bigger designs Apple went with on its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s models, there exists a large contingent of users who simply prefer a smaller form factor.
Packed with the same advanced technology as the iPhone 6s, the iPhone SE may very well be Apple’s sleeper hit of the season. But even if we put tech specs aside for a moment, the iPhone SE is particularly compelling because Apple thankfully opted to make it extremely affordable, pricing the base model at just $399. And now, thanks to a new deal available at Walmart, the iPhone SE, and all iPhone models for that matter, will be more affordable than ever before.
In less than a week, the Panthers will face the Broncos in what should be an exciting Super Bowl 50. That means you have plenty of time to upgrade your living room so that it’s ready for the big game. In other words, if you’ve been thinking about getting a brand new TV, now’s the time to do it. Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart are all lining up various TV deals for this year’s big game, with savings all the way up to $1,100 on certain models. More →
The Christmas shopping season is far from over, and while Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales are long gone, you’re still going to find plenty of hot deals for the remainder of the holiday shopping season.

After more than two solid weeks of nonstop deals coverage, Cyber Week 2015 is finally coming to a close. This Friday will signal the end of the most chaotic shopping holiday of the year, but as long as there are still discounts to be had, we want to make sure that our readers are aware of them.
Today, in what might be the final installment of our Walmart deals posts, we’ve collected ten of the best HDTV deals we could find. There are plenty of deals that didn’t make the list, but you’ll have to visit Walmart’s Cyber Week page for more.
As we work our way through Cyber Week 2015, new deals are becoming increasingly difficult to find. Although this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise (after all, products have to go back to their regular prices eventually), it can take some of the fun out of scouring the Internet for cheap TVs, games, home goods and other assorted gifts.
That’s why we’ve decided to continue to highlight the best deals from Walmart for the rest of the week.
Last week, we made sure to keep track of all the best pre-Black Friday deals from Walmart leading up to the biggest shopping day of the year. Well, Black Friday may have come and gone, but we’re now in the thick of Cyber Week, which means there are plenty more deals to take advantage of from many of the major retailers. More →

Just like we did last week with Black Friday, we’ll help you cut through the noise during Cyber Week and find the best deals on the web.
