Cutting Cost On TV’s

Television purchases are pretty high if you are wanting to get the newer versions like the 4K smart televisions. Then there are the next phase ones like HDR televisions that jack the price once again.

Some of us cannot afford the cost of TV’s these days and some of us can. Then there are the credit vultures like Acceptance Now who prey off of people with little credit. People end up paying 3 times more for it.

So I am sharing this post to show one way for people to cut the cost of purchasing a TV rather than getting in debt to companies that take advantage of peoples misfortunes.

Walmart Makes It Possible

Some people buy TV’s and then once they get home they determine it is not what they wanted for various reasons. They might say it is too big while others say too small. Sometimes it can be as simple as a little scrape or chip out of it.

Either way, these TV’s are still usable and in most cases, if it was a size issue they are probably flawless. But because they left the store they would be considered used and can be discounted.

What Will Walmart Do?

When Walmart take these TV’s as returns, they will have them in the back of the store and will let you purchase them if you inquire about them. This is usually done at a discounted price.

You can go to the Electronics area or ask for a Manager to find out if they have any returns they would like to part with. You can also find out why it was returned to make sure it was not because it was not working at all.

I know of someone who between himself and his relatives, have purchased 3 TVs from Walmart that were returned. And they have had no problems with them at all.

I took the liberty of calling the Walmart Super Store here where this type of purchased was said to have happened,  to make sure that what I am saying is true. And they

confirmed that I could buy a returned TV.

You will have to pay cash, however. So there won’t be any layaways for this type of purchase. But still, a saving is a savings.

So if your budget won’t allow you to get the television you want, it doesn’t hurt to ask and you just might receive. You never know until you try.


I hope this post might help someone receive something they may have wanted but could not fit it into the budget until maybe now. Feel free to leave any comment or question in the comment section.

    1. Yeah, Mark, many cities are making great riding routes for their biking community. And if you inquire about it in your location, there probably are some great bike routes where you are located. I think you should check it out and take some rides sometimes. You will find it exhilarating.

  1. Walmart is always a good choice when it comes to getting things at the lowest price. I love knowing that when I buy something big like a new TV at Walmart, that I can always return it and get my money back or something else that cost the same amount.

    They usually have a brand of TVs called “Vizio” which is really awesome! It’s very high quality and is pretty much always the lowest priced out of all of them. Do you use any Vizio TVs?

    I’ve used them myself for years and I highly recommend them to anyone else who is looking to buy a new TV on a budget.

    1. Thanks for the information, Nick. I did have a Vizio for many years. In fact, I just gave it to someone in the family and it still was working well. I would recommend it myself to others. Walmart does help you when your money is short with their prices as well. You made a very good point.

  2. Hmm, I had no idea you could do this. If they’re giving a discount, is a standard percentage, or does it just depend on the TV itself? I will definitely remember this the next time I need to buy a new TV. Of course, the cash issue is sometimes a problem, but saving up so you can get a discount is definitely worth it too. Thanks for the great information!

    1. That is a good question. I did not inquire how much of a discount you can get. But I do know that it was less than the purchase price. But like I said a saving is a savings. There are a lot of opportunities that are out there but we just might not know about them. That is why when I come across something I like to share it. I hope you can benefit from this post as well.

  3. This is great! I never knew Wallmart could be so accommodating! I have a couple daughters in university who would really benefit from a price break on products, so this is very helpful!

    1. That’s what I do Tamara. I try to put good information into people’s path so it can help someone out. Just remember that we are only talking about TV’s being done like that by the phone conversation I had with a Wal-Mart associate. But I hope this post can help your daughters.
