People go to Wal-Mart for one thing; to save money. I don’t care what others have to say about the world’s largest retailer, Wal-Mart is one of the best places to go to reduce the probable need of a payday loan. I find just about everything I need there: kids toys, home appliance, electronics, food, beauty products, etc. They have also expanded to other ventures. For instance, you can now get great deals on Wal-Mart caskets. Yep… I said caskets.

Wal-Mart Caskets Available Online

Wal-Mart is taking it all the way, from the cradle to the grave. Wal-Mart is offering caskets online with prices that range from $999.00 to $3,199.00. These unbelievable prices will no doubt carve a hole in the pockets of funeral homes, which has been the major source for caskets.

With Wal-Mart, you can get a casket for $1,000 instead of paying the traditional amount of $2-$3,000 at funeral homes. Caskets are shipped within 24 hours and delivered by FedEx overnight. According to the website, there are no refunds unless the product has been damaged during shipping. Wal-Mart is also allowing people to pay for the caskets over a period of 12 months with no interest. Sounds like a pretty sweet deal to me.

Cheaper Caskets – Wal-Mart or Costco?

This Wal-Mart casket motion follows a similar shift made by discount competitor Costco, which also sells caskets online. I compared the prices of Wal-Mart caskets with the price of caskets at Costco and so far, from what I’m looking at, you can find cheaper caskets at Costco. You can get a casket at Costco for only $924.99, rather than paying $999 for a casket at Wal-Mart. This way you save$74.01 on a casket. That’s another sweet saving!

Death of a Loved One is Hard Enough

The death of a loved one is hard on anyone. It also carries a huge burden of large expenses that may require an instant payday loan. That’s why I’m glad places like Wal-Mart and Costco are offering great deals on interment appliances such as caskets and floral arrangements. Death of a loved one is hard enough. Things are a lot easier when you have a little extra cash on hand.
