Someone else has been taking notice of the fleet, and is preparing to take on the blue and yellow big box. Find out about Wal-Mart's plans to compete when you read more.
Wal-Mart is enlisting the help of a third-party company called N.E.W. Customer Service to provide similar 24-hour tech support for their electronics customers. Instead of requiring a subscription fee to utilize tech support expertise like Best Buy, Wal-Mart will be offering up a prepaid card for purchase for any over the phone or in-home installation service. Buy one for yourself, or give one as a gift to your less-than-tech-savvy friends or family to use year round. The service should be ready to go nationwide by the upcoming holiday shopping season.
