It's beginning to look a lot like a bargain-hunter's Christmas. In its third round of holiday discounts, retail pacesetter Wal-Mart cut prices on appliances--just a week after slashing them on electronics and toys. And judging by the company's own words, apparel will be next.

"Wal-Mart will continue to roll back the prices of toys, electronics, apparel and more this holiday season to ensure that shoppers can find the season's best merchandise at one destination at the great prices," the Bentonville, Ark.-based company said in a statement.

The appliance discounts, announced Friday, range from around 7 percent to 17 percent on roughly 50 small home appliances, including GE microwaves and programmable coffee makers.
