Walmart is once again leading the pack by bringing back its $10 toys section in all stores and expanding its $10 holiday assortment this year to more than 100 toys.

The holiday kick-off includes an impressive inventory of reduced newly released toys, top brands and classic toys that shoppers look for every holiday season.

It's Just the Beginning

The $10 toys assortment is the first of several programs Walmart will announce this holiday season to bring 12 weeks of added savings in a year that has been increasingly tough on shopper's wallets.

"With the popularity of our '10 for $10' toy program last October, we knew it was important for customers that we bring it back and offer an even greater amount of $10 toys this year," said Laura Phillips, chief toy officer and vice president of Toys, Walmart.

"We began working months ago to ensure we could also introduce many toys at just $10 for this holiday program, as well as roll back prices at a time when our customers were ready to make purchases."
The $10 toys are not limited time offers, but last through the Christmas holiday. In addition, Walmart's price guarantee will match any local competitor's advertised offer on the same toy product if it falls below $10.

CVS is starting a new program for CVS ExtraCare cardholders who reuse shopping bags. According to the company, ExtraCare members will receive a $1 coupon for every four times they reuse a bag.
How the Program Will Work
Cardholders will receive a Green Bag Tag card which they can attach to a cloth shopping bag. After making a purchase, the tag is scanned and a $1 ExtraCare buck will print after the fourth scan.
Shoppers can expect to see the program in all stores by the end of November 2009.
