The following is a compensated sponsored post for Walmart.com. Walmart.com paid for all items purchased. All opinions are my own and were not influenced by any party.
I often receive emails and questions from readers looking for deals. For me, it is fun to take a look on-line to see if I can’t find them the lowest possible price on the item they need. I have many sites which I usually review in my quest for the lowest price. What I find is the more often than not, the every day price at Walmart is the lowest price available. I usually recommend to readers who are searching for a deal, to just take a look at Walmart as that is (more often than not) the lowest online price.
This holds true for most products – including baby items. When parents are expecting a little one, there is so much to buy. From the crib, to the car seat, to the stroller to diapers, they need to find the lowest price possible — without sacrificing quality or safety. I was recently presented a challenge by Walmart.com. They asked me to search for 3 baby items on Walmart.com and see if a competing site, Amazon.com, could match the price or not.
Below you’ll find receipts for 3 popular baby items. These include The Graco Travel Lite Mini Playard with Baby Bassinet (Ally), Bright Starts – Doodle Bugs Around We Go Baby Activity Station and the Baby Trend – Baby Activity Walker with Toys (Kiku). I will admit that even I was shocked that the Walmart price was more than $80 LOWER than Amazon. The Walmart prices were not sale prices, but just every day low prices. You really should check out all of the great deals on Baby Items at Walmart! Look on to see the proof!
Here is a copy of my receipt from Walmart. You can see that my total spent for all 3 items was $220.40. That included my sale tax and shipping!!
I next shopped at Amazon.com. There, it was not just prices which were different, but also the cost of shipping! Not everything was available for me to ship for free, even though I had an Amazon Prime membership. So, that meant I still had to pay to get it delivered to me. At Amazon, my total spent for all three items ended up being $307.65. Here’s a shot of those totals so you can see for yourself.
I was able to save more than $87 just by shopping at Walmart!!!
For me, it wasn’t even just the prices at Walmart.com that I liked. Shopping there was just so easy! Just a few clicks of my mouse and my order was placed! I honestly think it took me less time to check out than it it did to even add the items to my shopping cart!! By the time I hit the submit button to place my order and clicked over to my email, my confirmation was already waiting for me. And then, in less than 24 hours after I placed the order (which was on Saturday) I already had an email that my items had already been shipped to me. That’s what I call customer service!!!
As most of you know, I don’t have little babies anymore. However, I am always looking to help out charities in our community. One of them is the local church where my daughter attends preschool. All 3 of my children attended Mother’s Day Out / Preschool there so it really holds a very special place in my heart. This year is very bittersweet as it is our final year we will have a child attending. I wanted to do something very special for them, and so when I saw that this playard was such a great deal, I just KNEW I needed to get this for them. The moment I called the school to see if they could use this, my heart was warmed. The director was overwhelmed as this was an item that the school desperately needed and this would help save them a little money. Thanks to Walmart’s prices, this was possible!
It is so easy to think that you have to wait for a sale when shopping for so many things you need. However, if you watch, other site’s sale prices usually end up being more than Walmart.com’s everyday low prices. They really have the right to claim “Why Wait for a Sale?” You really can find the best deals on the items you need – when you need them.
Whenever you are needing to make any online purchases, make sure you check Walmart.com before you look elsewhere. Then, compare the prices. Chances are, Walmart.com will still be the other’s sites sale prices, making it truly a great site to visit for anything you might need.
