Walmart Layaway

Layaway is available in stores this holiday season from August 28th through December 14, 2015. Certain store locations offer layaway year round for jewelry purchases only. Layaway is not offered for online purchases.

How it works:

  • Down payment is $10 or 10%, whichever is greater

The rules

  • Minimums – Individual items must be $10 or greater. Total purchases must be $50 or greater
  • Terms – Final payment and pickup must be made on or before December 14 at the same store layaway was initiated (or order will be canceled). Excludes wireless phones that require contracts.
  • Cancellation – If account is canceled, items will be returned to inventory. Down payment and payments made will be refunded, less a $10 cancellation fee.
  • Returns – Walmart Returns Policy applies to all layaway transactions.

Pickup & pay

  • Location – Layaway is initiated and picked up at the Service Desk. Payments can be made at any register.
