Love the convenience of online holiday shopping, but hate those horrid shipping costs? Now you can get your favorite As Seen On TV products shipped FREE… from Walmart.
Walmart has kicked off the holiday season early this year by getting rid of something all online shoppers hate: shipping costs. From now until December 20th, over 60,000 products can be purchased at Walmart.com and either shipped directly to your home or the nearest Walmart store for free. Even sweeter is that unlike certain popular online shopping sites, there is no minimum purchase or annual fee required for free shipping.
The people at Allstar Marketing (they market the Snuggie) aren’t content to have a Snuggie covering every man, woman and child in North America. No, now they want to put a Snuggie on your dog, too. If you haven’t been near a TV or Walgreens for the past year, I suppose it’s possible that you’re now aware of the Snuggie, a fleece blanket with sleeves. Since Snuggie for Dogs is available in the traditional colors that signify gender, I’d expect to see lots of pink and blue lumps on leashes strolling the streets of your neighborhood this fall and winter.
Sometimes you just have the feeling that a product is going to be really, really big. That’s the feeling we got when we first saw the commercial for Snuggie, the Blanket with Sleeves. Snuggie really hits all the right marks to be a big holiday success. It’s useful, not too expensive, and it appeals to both genders and all age groups. Plus, during these tough economic times, it encourages people to turn down the thermostat and save both money and energy.
You can tell that big bucks went into producing this commercial. It features multiple locations and a large cast, including the famous couple from the ListenUp commercial. You may not know their names, but who can forget her nagging “Does that have to be so loud???” when he’s just try to hear the TV.
Anyway, look for this commercial to play endlessly on every basic cable channel from now until Christmas.
