The Cyber Monday sales from Walmart have been announced for 2012, with deals offering savings of up to $1,000 on popular electronics, video games, and toys. Cyber Monday sales are the shopping alternative for families who prefer to focus on Thanksgiving with the family rather than brave the long lines of Black Friday retailers. Cyber Monday sales are completely online and thus are the shop-from-home alternative that begin on November 26. Cyber Monday sales are also less likely to offer disappointment, since the best Black Friday doorbusters are often available only in limited quantity. This Black Friday doorbusters limitation means that the best deals may be limited to those camping out early for Black Friday.
This year’s Cyber Monday sales at Walmart include a Samsung 55″ 1080p Class LED Smart 3D HDTV for $1498 ($1,000 off), Samsung 50″ Class LED 1080p 60Hz HDTV for $598 ($400 off), Double Power T-711 with WiFi 7″ Tablet for $59, and a Xbox 360 Skylanders Family Fun Bundle for $159 ($100 off).
“We’re making this a holiday to remember with our biggest savings ever for Cyber Monday, expanded free shipping to home on more electronics and toys than ever before, and the option to pay cash for online gifts,” said Joel Anderson, President & CEO of Walmart.com. “Plus, we’re adding new online, mobile and social options that give Walmart customers who ‘get connected’ early, exclusive access to the best deals.”
The sales will begin Saturday, November 24 and run through December 2nd. Shoppers can purchase items online and have them shipped to their local store for free pickup. For those purchasing certain select items and items purchased for more than $45, you can have your Cyber Monday deals shipped directly to your home with free shipping.
This year, Walmart is providing a free free mobile app to keeps shoppers aware of new Cyber Monday sales. The Cyber Monday app even helps shoppers navigate the brick-and-mortar Walmart store locations. If you do not want to use your credit cards, Walmart is offering a pay cash option for families. Walmart customers can purchase their Cyber Monday deals online and pay cash upon picking them up at their local Walmart.
