Please learn your lesson and stop procrastinating your holiday shopping till the very last minute. The mall on Christmas Eve might as well be the¬†Hunger Games, except in this version, you’re throwing elbows over the last pair of AirPod Max.

To help you get ahead of your shopping this year, Walmart is making a few improvements to its own return policy¬†that will change your shopping game. Starting in October, customers and Walmart+ members can start shopping without 30-day return policies. The “Holiday Guarantee” gives you a longer return window, so you can purchase your presents after October 1 and have until January 31, 2023 to send anything back.

“Walmart is making the returns experience easier and more convenient with three new and expanded options that save customers time during the busiest season of the year and give them extra peace of mind when shopping for gifts,” the company said in an announcement last week. “Starting in October, Walmart customers and Walmart+ members can take advantage of seamless new returns options.”

Here’s the best part: the retail giant is also making it more convenient to conduct your returns-whether they’re strange presents from your Aunt Suzy or gifts you ended up not giving. Walmart is offering curbside returns, in addition to return pickup from your house¬†for eligible Walmart+ members.

Just initiate your eligible return in the app and you will be able to schedule the return for pickup. You don’t even need a box or label. The professionals will handle that part. Both return options will be available beginning the first week in October.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
