Want to get a head start on your online holiday shopping? If so, Wal-Mart has made this possible by holding a special event for early birds Fox News Business reported Friday.

"We know that our customers start shopping for the holidays on Nov. 1 because historically our traffic spikes the day after Halloween," Walmart chief executive officer Joel Anderson said in a statement Fox Business reported.

"Customers want to relax with friends and family during the holidays, and with our early deals we are helping them make the most of their time and helping them stretch their dollars further," Anderson said in a statement The Los Angeles Times reported.

Customers can choose 300 early-bird specials, and door-buster deals on products typically kept for Black Friday, and Cyber Monday from the company headquartered in Bentonville, Ark.

The company is also giving customers the option to ship orders costing more than $50 on 99 percent of merchandise listed on their website. The offer also applies to 50 percent of marketplace items as the company tries to appeal to shoppers on the move, along with online.

According to Fox Business, 40 percent of Wal-Mart's traffic from holiday shopping came from people who used their handheld smartphone.

Participants can buy a JVC 42-inch LED television for $299; a 36 percent discount, and 51 percent on a 10-inch Xelio tablet Fox Business reported. Apple's iPad mini, and iPod Touch are also available for $299 and $289.

The company's latest news has become commonplace for other retailers of its kind to get a jump on the holiday season.

Toys R Us has also joined the party, and introduced deals which involve options to hold produts until customers are ready to buy it.

Online retailer Amazon.com has also initiated its Black Friday Deals Store, where it offers two deals a day until Dec. 22.
