Whether you’re using the Walmart.ca app (which we recommend, since it will have the most up-to-date info!) or the website from your laptop or desktop, you can create as many as 50 shopping lists once you sign up for an account. Label them clearly with “Toys for Avery” or “Tech Favourites” to keep organized.

7Spend less and still get free shipping.
At Walmart.ca, there’s now free shipping on orders of $35 or more. Orders of at least $25 can be shipped to the store for easy pick-up. Some locations even have free curb-side pick-up, too.

On two of the biggest shopping days of the year, it’s OK to refresh your Walmart.ca page—you won’t lose items already saved in your cart. However, try not to have tons of tabs or pages open on your browser to avoid slowdowns on the site.
