(WOIO) - Layaway at Walmart is now available. The store began offering it nationwide Sept. 16 and it will last through Dec. 14. Compared to last year, this gives families an extra month to pay off their purchases.
Layaway at Walmart also includes a full refund of the $15 layaway open fee, in the form of a Walmart gift card, to customers who make their final payment.
The rules for layaway:
· Individual items must be priced $15 or more, and the total basket must be at least $50.
· A down payment of 10 percent or $10, whichever is greater, is required when items are places on layaway.
· The Layaway open fee is $5 but if the customer pays in full they will receive it back on a Walmart gift card or in cash where applicable.
· If the order is canceled, the open fee is not refunded; however no additional cancellation fee will be charged.
