Last week Walmart offered insane discounts on items if they were picked up in-store.

 

Hit the comments and share what items you have picked up and how your experience was.

On DDF some members were in and out within minutes. However others reported waiting an hour to get their item, not exactly the best way to make a good impression on a service that Walmart wants to use as a competitive advantage over Amazon.

Don’t forget that you only have 7 days to pickup your items from when they arrive in the store before the order is cancelled!

What Did Walmart Learn From Its Nuclear Test Against Amazon Last Week?

Ever since Walmart lured Marc Lore to work for them, they have stepped up their war with Amazon. They lowered the free shipping threshold from $49 to $35, but then Amazon matched and beat them.

Last month Walmart started offering small pickup discounts to gain a competitive advantage over Amazon. After all, it could ship things to its stores for a fraction of the cost to ship things to consumers homes. Plus it hoped to encourage consumers to spend more in stores as well while they were there.

Unfortunately for Walmart, Amazon quickly matched the pickup discount and a price war developed. Items would be marked down by more than 50% before the item would sell out and the price war would move onto other items.

At around 9PM last Monday Walmart started offering insane pickup discounts, as much as 90% off if you picked them up in-store. It put Black Friday deals to shame.

Some people thought it was a mistake, but the timing was far too deliberate. It was just as their price war with Amazon was heating up. More interestingly, it was focused on bulky and heavy items.

That made perfect sense for Walmart as they could ship them to their own stores without it costing a fortune. But if Amazon wanted to match the pricing it would cost them dearly. They would take a huge hit on both the item and the shipping costs.

I think Walmart was testing the waters. They wanted to see just how far Amazon was willing to go. And they wanted to inflict as much pain as possible for Amazon while they were at it. The pickup discounts continued to escalate until about 3PM on Tuesday. Walmart gained lots of new customers with the discounts, but they also learned that Amazon was prepared to invest millions of dollars in the war. Amazon refused to be undersold, no matter what it would cost them.

So where does it go from here?

Walmart’s pickup discounts have dropped back down to smaller levels and Amazon continues to match them. Walmart then matches the Amazon price and adds a pickup discount and Amazon matched the new pickup discount price.

For example:
-Sauder Heritage Hill 5-Shelf Library Bookcase is $91.97-$0.92 pickup discount at Walmart and $91.05 at Amazon.

-Happy Camper Two Person Tent by Wakeman Outdoors is $13.80-$0.14 pickup discount at Walmart and $13.66 from Amazon.

-Dream On Me Ashton Convertible 5-in-1 Crib, Mystic Grey is $119-$2.98 pickup discount at Walmart and $116.02 from Amazon.

It’s hard to imagine how WalMart can win this war. Amazon seems determined not to let Walmart have any advantage. Amazon has Prime membership, a lower free shipping threshold for non-Prime members ($25 vs $35), and who would rather have to go into Walmart to pickup a crib when Amazon will give you Walmart’s in-store price and still ship it to your home. Plus Amazon has a massive scale advantage over Walmart’s e-commerce division.

I’ll keep watching the battle as I find it fascinating and I’m sure Marc Lore has something else up his sleeve. But even he must be realizing just how hard it will be for them catch up to Amazon’s online dominance.

Find The Latest Amazon-Walmart Price War Deals On DDF!

Tuesday, May 9th, 2017

Amazon and Walmart are in full war mode today with Walmart offering insane in-store pickup prices and Amazon matching them with free shipping.

It seems more sustainable for Walmart as it’s far cheaper for them to offer in-store pricing than it is for Amazon to ship it. However people are more inclined to buy from Amazon and have them ship items to their door than have to pick them up from Walmart.

Either way, both companies are offering completely unsustainable deals, so it will be interesting to see what the end game will be.

But it’s great to see Walmart finally making themselves relevant online. Consumers will be the true winners of this war, no matter how it plays out.

The best deals have been selling out quickly, be sure to follow @DansDeals on Twitter and signup for text messages from Twitter to be alerted of new deals. You’ll be competing against 81,800 other Twitter followers, so you’ll need to act fast once you get the alert!

You can also find great deals by following the new Amazon & Walmart Deals board on DDF. Hundreds of price war deals have been posted there today!

You can post deals that you find there as well. Deals from DDF that are posted on DansDeals earn hat tips.

If you don’t have a Walmart near you, it may be worth ordering several deals to your nearest Walmart. If you find enough bargains you may find it worthwhile to schlep over there. If you don’t pickup your order by the pickup deadline you will be automatically refunded for the order. Of course if Amazon price matches your item, you can cancel the Walmart order and have it shipped to your door from Amazon.

Has Black Friday Come Early? Amazon-Walmart Price War Goes Nuclear!

Tuesday, May 9th, 2017

In 2015 Amazon announced their own “Black Friday in July” with their Amazon Prime Day Sale. The first sale was relatively weak and people complained that the deals weren’t competitive compared Black Friday. However last year they delivered strong sitewide discounts on Prime Day.

Last month Walmart started offering small in-store pickup discounts ranging from 20 cents to a few dollars off products. That set off a price war between Amazon and Walmart. Products in a price war go into an ongoing downward price spiral as Amazon keeps matching the Walmart’s in-store price and then Walmart lowers their price until they sell out. That has made for some great deals.

Since last night Walmart has increased the in-store pickup discount on some items to as much as 82% of the cost of the product, on top of already discounted pricing. Clearly they are tired of Amazon’s matching game and are taking things to a whole new level. But Amazon is now matching some of those discounts as well and we are seeing incredible prices that easily beat out many Black Friday deals.

It’s hard to say how this war will end, but current pricing is completely unsustainable, so be sure to take advantage of these deals while you can.

If you don’t have a Walmart near you, it may be worth ordering several deals to your nearest Walmart. If you find enough bargains you may find it worthwhile to schlep over there. If you don’t pickup your order by the pickup deadline you will be automatically refunded for the order. Of course if Amazon price matches your item, you can cancel the Walmart order and have it shipped to your door from Amazon.

The Intensifying Amazon-WalMart Price War And Jeff Bezos-Marc Lore Personal Feud Is A Huge Boon For Consumers

Thursday, May 4th, 2017

Marc Lore launched Diapers.com in 2005 out of a garage. It quickly grew and by 2010 Amazon’s CEO Jeff Bezos decided that he had seen enough.

Amazon flooded the market with free diapers in 2010 and 2011. I still have free diapers from those promotions! Eventually Lore was compelled to sell his entire Quidsi operation to Amazon for $545 millon, a much lower number than he felt it was worth, due to Amazon’s relentless price war.

Lore worked for Amazon for 2 years before leaving under less than amicable circumstances.

He immediately set about creating Jet.com. The business model would be a combination of Costco and Amazon, but people balked at paying another membership fee, so he quickly removed Jet’s membership fee.

Meanwhile WalMart was tired of getting crushed by Amazon in the e-commerce space. They wanted Marc Lore to turn things around. In order to do that they wound up buying Jet.com in August 2016 for $3.3 billion and they made Lore their CEO of e-commerce.

Lore has been aggressively adding items to WalMart.com’s inventory to make them competitive with Amazon and he set about having WalMart aggressively price match Amazon.

In January 2017 he killed WalMart’s ShippingPass membership and lowered the free shipping threshold from $49 to $35. By February Amazon also lowered their free shipping threshold from $49 to $35. Of course Amazon also gives free shipping on all orders with Amazon Prime and I’m still not sure why WalMart killed the ShippingPass option. Plus Amazon gives free shipping on all subscription orders.

In March 2017 Amazon shut down the entire Quidsi/Diapers.com operation that was founded by Lore.

In April 2017 Walmart introduced pickup discount. Lore said that it cost Walmart about $5 per package delivered to someone’s home versus just 75 cents for a package delivered to a WalMart store. So he started offering a pickup discount on most items sold by WalMart that are not carried in store.

His hope was that Amazon wouldn’t bother matching an in-store pickup discount.

He was wrong.

Amazon has been aggressively matching WalMart’s pricing and passing on the in-store pickup discount in their pricing.

In turn WalMart has been matching Amazon’s matched price and Amazon lowers their price again.

For example on April 19th both Amazon and WalMart were charging $136.92 for 4 Lifetime Chairs. Then WalMart added a small pickup discount. Now there’s no way I’d go into a WalMart to pickup 4 chairs all to save a few bucks, but Amazon lowered their price by a few dollars as well.

lifetime

 

After 10 days of price drops it fell to $80.39 on Amazon and it was posted as a deal on this site on 4/29. Walmart dropped it to $80.39 before a $3.14 pickup discount, Amazon matched that at $77.25 on 4/30. Walmart dropped it to $77.25 before a $3.01 pickup discount, Amazon matched that at $74.24 yesterday morning. Walmart dropped it to $74.24 before a $2.90 pickup discount, Amazon matched that at $71.34 yesterday evening. Walmart dropped it to $71.34 before a $2.78 pickup discount, Amazon matched that at $68.56 this morning.

And just now WalMart has matched the $68.56 price before a $2.67 pickup discount. Amazon’s stock of the item is running low, but I won’t be surprised to see them drop the price to $65.89 shortly to match the WalMart pickup discount price, but with free shipping.

Update: Amazon did indeed match the $65.89 price, but now Amazon and Walmart are both sold out. However there are thousands of other items being fought over between Amazon and WalMart, for example all of the items found in this comment.

The same pattern is happening on thousands of other items. For example most of the items in this roundup have had daily price cuts thanks to the Amazon/WalMart price matching war that has been intensified by WalMart’s pickup discount.

That blurs the line between what is traditionally a deal or not. Some people complain about there being too many deals. Thanks to the price war there are more great deals than ever before, but the prices have come down incrementally, making for lots of great prices, but every day it’s only slightly lower than before, though significantly lower than when each price war begins..

Unfortunately for Mr. Lore and WalMart, Amazon still has a distinct advantage thanks to 2nd day free shipping on all orders with Amazon Prime, to which WalMart has no answer. All else being equal, I’ll buy with Amazon thanks to Prime and their superior customer service. Plus I can buy Amazon gift cards at office supply stores for 5 points per dollar 🙂

But it’s not like Amazon or WalMart are about to buy each other out and they both have very deep pockets, the only question is how low will they go?

WalMart Kills ShippingPass, Now Offering 2 Day Shipping On $35+ Orders

Tuesday, January 31st, 2017

WalMart’s ShippingPass has had a bit of a rough run

In 2015 I posted a deal to get ShippingPass for just $1. It turned out that WalMart was still beta testing the program, so they gave a $50 gift card to everyone who enrolled in the $1 offer.

ShippingPass went public last year for $49/year and shortly thereafter started offering a a free trial and 2 day shipping instead of 3 day shipping.

And today they are killing the ShippingPass program. They will automatically refund everyone who paid to join it.

Instead they will offer free 2nd day shipping on most items when you make a $35+ order.

Orders under $35 will cost $5.99 and they will also come in 2 days.

Personally I don’t see why WalMart can’t offer free $35+ shipping and a ShippingPass membership option. I love using Amazon Prime and ordering items without needing to meet minimum order requirementsthough I can’t stand add-on items that require a $25 order, let alone a $35 order as WalMart will require. Luckily Amazon offers the ability to subscribe to some add-on items which waives the requirement to make a $25 order.

Still, the $35 order level is competitive for people who don’t pay for Amazon Prime. It will be interesting to see if it forces Amazon to lower their $49 free shipping threshold for non-Prime members or it they’ll be wary to do that in order not to cannibalize Prime membership signups.

One thing is certain, competition is always good for consumers.
