Bentonville, Ark. and Miami, Fla. – March 21, 2018 – Walmart and CarSaver today announced they will expand a program that helps customers save time and money when buying a car.

CarSaver is the first and only one-stop-shop platform that helps Walmart customers save time and money when they buy, finance, lease and insure all the top brands of new and used cars.    

Purchase Fulfillment

CarSaver uses a network of certified dealers, banks and insurance companies to provide transparent, up-front pricing and the highest level of customer service to Walmart customers. In addition, every vehicle purchased through CarSaver comes with a lifetime warranty.*
    
By skipping the often stressful, time-intensive car negotiation process, CarSaver is one of the latest ways Walmart customers can save time and money. 
    
According to CarSaver data and research, the average CarSaver customer has saved more than $3,500 off of MSRP on the purchase and $3,900 on repairs covered by CarSaver’s lifetime warranty.
     

Walmart Perspective

“We’re constantly looking for innovative services that help us save busy families money and time,” said Daniel Eckert, Senior Vice President, Walmart Services and Digital Acceleration. “CarSaver’s unique platform helps our customers understand the true cost of ownership, while also helping them save money with buying, financing, leasing and insuring a new or used vehicle.”

Car Buying Process

Customers can use Carsaver.com to find a car in seconds by comparing the vehicles with the biggest savings and the lowest prices. Once a customer finds what they want, they are connected with an “express manager” who makes it easy to test drive or pick up their car at a local certified dealership. CarSaver will soon help consumers sell their car by providing an “instant cash offer” from a large network of certified dealers who bid on their car.

“We are excited to work with Walmart to make car buying easier for their customers,” said Chad Collier, President, CarSaver. “We are leveraging the buying power of Walmart’s 140 million shoppers a week to get them great deals without wasting time negotiating.”

Financial Services

Ally Financial is currently offering gift card incentives to Walmart customers who finance through Ally using the CarSaver site. “We are honored to work with CarSaver to help make it easier for Walmart customers to get the car they want at a payment they can afford," said Tim Russi, president of auto finance at Ally, one of the largest auto finance providers in the country. “CarSaver is leading the way by providing a simple, transparent and innovative customer experience.”

In addition, a vehicle purchase program for Walmart associates will be launched shortly to help Walmart’s 1.5 million U.S. associates save time and money when buying a car. The CarSaver platform will also be available via a microsite on Walmart.com.
