Walmart's official site offers online sales, weekly deals and savings promotions, a store locator and gift services. These gift services include registries, gift card purchases and gift card balance checks. Walmart's site also provides help and customer service functions.
Walmart's online store allows customers to either pick up orders at their local Walmart store or receive them as home deliveries. It provides order tracking for online orders; these are tracked by order number and email address. Logged in users can track all orders attached to their accounts without looking them up individually.
Customers can return online purchases through the website. For gifts, this service is available to both the purchaser and the recipient. Returns initiated online and mailed back to Walmart are paid out to the purchaser. For the recipient to receive the refund, the gift must be returned in person at a Walmart store.
Walmart's online savings programs include copies of its weekly ads, printable coupons and its Savings Catcher program. Savings Catcher works by scanning Walmart receipts and comparing prices to those of local competitors. When lower prices are found, customers receive a refund for the difference. This refund can be issued on either a Walmart gift card or an American Express prepaid card.
