Walmart Extends Online Discounts, Cuts More Jobs Amid Pricing War with Amazon


Walmart (WMT) is dangling more online-order discounts in front of consumers while cutting corporate head count as it doubles down on efforts to cut costs and better compete with e-commerce behemoth Amazon (AMZN).

As part of those ongoing efforts, Walmart announced Wednesday that beginning April 19, it will launch what it calls the Pickup Discount: Lower prices for about 10,000 items customers can purchase on the store’s e-commerce platform and have sent to any Walmart store for pickup.
