Walmart Releases All 2,000 Cyber Monday Deals Sunday Night at 8 p.m. ET to Offer Customers Top Specials Without Midnight Madness

Millions of customers can finally sleep well the night before Cyber
Monday as all of Walmart’s Cyber Monday Deals Launch Early on Sunday

SAN BRUNO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–For the first time ever, all of Walmart’s Cyber Monday savings will be
available to customers starting Sunday evening, Nov. 29 at 8 p.m. ET.
The change is aimed at providing a simpler and more convenient
experience for customers who are searching the Web on Sunday night and
often waiting up past midnight to do their shopping. Google searches for
the term “Cyber Monday” clearly surge on Monday, but there is also a
significant spike on Sunday evening. And, historically, when Walmart
released select Cyber Monday deals on Sunday evening, traffic increased
significantly.


Cyber Monday originated as consumers waited to get back to work after
Black Friday to continue their holiday shopping online where they had a
high-speed connection. As faster Internet spread to more homes and
smartphones, consumers began staying awake past midnight Sunday to
access the best specials as they came online. Walmart’s earlier start
time breaks with that “tired” tradition and reflects a commitment to
make shopping easier for customers without asking them to stay up into
the wee hours or checking online every few minutes on Monday.

“It can be exhausting for working parents and millennials to stay up
past midnight to shop online, only to wake up early the next day to get
ready for work,” said Fernando Madeira, President and CEO, Walmart.com.
“By starting ‘Cyber Monday’ hours earlier on Sunday evening and
quadrupling the number of Cyber Monday specials, we’re making it easier
for customers to get ahead of the busiest online shopping day of the
year and save on the best gifts.”

Savings All Weekend Long

On the heels of Black Friday, Walmart begins Cyber Week on Saturday,
Nov. 28 with key items available for free in-store pick up. The savings
continue with Walmart’s biggest Cyber Monday ever beginning at 8 p.m. ET
on Sunday, Nov. 29, with incredible deals on thousands of items,
including:

  • LG 65” 4K Ultra HDTV – $799 ($500 savings) + free shipping
  • Microsoft Surface Pro 3 – $599 ($200 savings) + free shipping

Deeper Inventory and the Best Deals on Items Customers Want Most

Walmart.com merchants closely watched customer search and demand trends
in the months leading up to the holidays and significantly expanded the
assortment for Cyber Monday in the most sought-after categories. For
example, in the past week, searches for Star Wars, 4K TVs, drones, Beats
by Dre headphones, Fitbit and 3D printers are all up more than 100
percent compared to the same time last year. Walmart.com has increased
its assortment of these key items and will offer triple the number of
Star Wars toys, three times as many 4K TVs, 15X more drones, and 350
percent more 3D printers and accessories compared to last year.

Fast, Free Shipping on Millions of Items

Last year, nearly 90 percent of the orders placed on Walmart.com between
Thanksgiving Day and Cyber Monday shipped for free. Millions of items
ship for free to Walmart stores across the country, and Walmart offers
free shipping to home on orders of $50 or more.

More Opportunities to Shop with the Return of Evening Edition

Walmart plans to bring back the popular “Evening Edition” which launched
last year on the evening of Cyber Monday to give working moms, dads and
millennials another opportunity to get the best gifts at low prices. If
customers are unable to shop on Sunday evening, they have a second
chance on Monday after work. Last year, Walmart saw a sharp increase in
visits to Walmart.com during this time period. Cyber Week will continue
through Friday, Dec. 4 with 2,000 online specials offered each day. More
information on the Evening Edition will be unveiled before Cyber Monday.
