In another round of its promised weekly efforts to save shoppers more on holiday purchases this fall, Walmart announced a one-week offer (11/14 to 11/20) on its full assortment of BlackBerry devices from all four major carriers: AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless. With the purchase of any BlackBerry at Walmart Wireless and two-year contract from these major carriers, shoppers will receive a $100 Walmart Gift Card at purchase to use on a later transaction on anything in the store, adding more spending "money" to consumer wallets on anything Walmart carries.
"We know customers are very focused on value, and we have promised each week to deliver new savings to help them stretch their dollars this holiday season," said Greg Hall, vice president Media Services, Walmart U.S. "With our expansion of Walmart Wireless products over the last year, we look forward to providing an exciting offer on our BlackBerry assortment and give cellular customers an extra boost on holiday needs."
Cellular devices that help consumers stay connected with email, photos, music, and video, and offer new functionalities and greater memory continue to attract shoppers. According to research group Canalys, smart phones continue to shine as one of the brightest spots of the technology industry, with shipments growing despite the recession. In addition, price continues to be a key decision factor in the purchase of a cell phone device.
Starting Saturday, Nov. 14 at 8 am through Nov. 20, customers will receive a $100 Walmart Gift Card with the purchase of any of the following BlackBerry devices with a two-year contract, at Walmart's every day low prices:
* AT&T Curve 8310
* AT&T Bold 9000
* Sprint Curve 8330 (Red & Titanium colors)
* T-Mobile 8520 (Black, White, and Frost)
* T-Mobile Pearl 8120 (Emerald)
* Verizon Storm
* Verizon Storm II
This smart phone savings event is nationwide at all Walmart stores at Walmart Wireless departments. Walmart Wireless associates can help customers select from products and services available in their area and activate their new phone within minutes of selection. Customers can use their $100 Gift Card on the same day or save it for other purchases needed through the holiday season.
A special online offer will also be available online at Walmart.com (www.walmart.com/wireless), providing customers who purchase these BlackBerry devices online with a two-year contract a $100 Walmart.com eGift Card that will be emailed in four to six weeks.
