We need milk, eggs, shaving cream - oh, and a mortgage if you have time.

A recent study shows that a third of Americans would consider getting a mortgage from Walmart. According to research from the Carlisle & Gallagher Consulting Group, consumers are more willing than ever to try alternative lenders.

I'm not sure why this is entirely surprising - Costco's been doing it for a few years now. And let's face it, it's just a financial transaction.Still, I suppose this is a long overdue for all those banks that offered free toasters for opening accounts. Payback's a bitch.
