Amazon just dropped free shipping minimum to $25. Figured this was as good a place as any to let y'all know


Thanks. Sunday Dans Deals

With free return shipping? Didn't know they offer that outside of clothing...
All baby items.

And the amazon declares victory.
Walmart already won. Neither one is going to put the other out of business. Walmart's purpose is to make themselves a full fledged competition with Amazon. Mission accomplished. The question is how long they will continue it for added publicity.
Feelings don't care about your facts

The pickup discount has another purpose: get people into the store.

The simple fact is that most people won't make a special trip to the store to save $5. Instead, they will plan a shopping at Walmart, and pick up their item along the way.

He said they did not give up, just need a day or 2 to get it all to fedex... then will continue war...  They are not as equipped as amazon...
Also they want to see how many people also buy stuff instore when picking something up. So will be monitoring with surveys etc

I have a walmart near my house that I go to frequently for in-store pick which is on the other side of the store. I would never walk into the actual store which is a madhouse at all times. (Think Catskills Walmart visiting day, but worse).

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

If he wants to go on record could be as an anonymous source, we'd love to talk to him! Walmart is really doing something special here and having some off the record quotes would be awesome for a post.

Feel free to PM if he could do that.

They're fedexing everything to their own stores?  Would think they would send it on their own trucks.
