Walmart’s “BIG Christmas Event” is Tomorrow! December 17th (Reader Giveaway)

This is a surprising fact: According to the National Retail Federation, as of the second week in December, the average person has completed only 46.5 percent of their shopping. Actually, I shouldn’t be all that surprised since I still have to do almost all my shopping!

Because of procrastinators like us, Walmart is holding the “BIG Christmas Event” geared specifically to the millions of last-minute shoppers. The events starts tomorrow, December 17th, at 8 am, with the lowest prices of the season on toys, games, electronics, bikes and more. Also, is offering you an extra day to shop online by extending its shipping deadlines. Their holiday shipping options both ensure gifts arrive in time for Christmas and also help save you shipping fees.
