Giveaway: Game Time at Walmart ($50 GC) [CLOSED]

Sometimes company coming over is just a last minute thing. That is why the week prior to the Super Bowl is one of the busiest of the year in two areas at stores like Walmart . . . groceries and big screen HDTVs. If you have to spring for the food and a new television, then you may want to shop for both at Walmart this year.

Currently, Walmart is offering Free Standard or Freight shipping directly to your home on all eligible televisions. There are 3 ways to shop for a new TV at Walmart . . . in-store, online with free shipping to your home, or online with free shipping site-to-store. To make this purchase even easier, Walmart offers a variety of home entertainment installation packages, which range from $200 to as little as $99. Now that you are not worrying about studs, brackets, and wires, you can turn your attention to the aspect of any game time party that is equally important as the picture quality on your television . . . the refreshments.

At Walmart, you can snag enough game time snacks for up to 8 people for as little as $44. There is a Game Time Shopping List widget on the Walmart website, which calculates the quantity of food you will need depending on the number of guests. For example, a party with 8 people is recommended to have the following on hand . . .

We recommend:

  • 16drinks
  • 2bags of chips
  • 1boxes of crackers
  • 1containers of dip
  • 1deli platters
  • 1veggie platters
  • 24individual appetizer pieces
  • 16individual burgers/hot dogs
  • 16buns

Walmart's handy Game Time checklist even lists out the all-time favorite Frito-Lay snacks and Pepsi products. How could Walmart make getting ready for Game Day any easier?
