With Black Friday now over, retailers are revving up even more deals to entice consumers during what is known as Cyber Week, an extension to the relatively new focus on online shopping that’s come to be promoted as Cyber Monday. The world’s largest retailer, Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (NYSE: WMT) wants to become a big player in the online shopping universe and this is an opportunity for the company to show its stuff.
In addition to major savings on consumer electronics and other higher priced items, Wal-Mart is also reducing prices on hundreds of items that can save customers significant cash on smaller purchases.
We wanted to see what you might find at Wal-Mart for $10 or less, so we spent some time poring over the ecommerce site to pull out a few sample items. Unless otherwise noted, an online order must total $50 to be eligible for free shipping.
