Beyoncé’s self titled CD hit Walmart shelves Friday (Dec. 20), so the “Flawless” superstar decided to surprise shoppers at a local store in Tewksbury, MA before heading to TD Garden in Boston to perform for her Mrs. Carter World Tour.

During her mini-shopping spree, she purchased a copy of her own album and even picked up a gift for Blue. When she reached the register, she had a special announcement for guests: “Attention Walmart shoppers, the first $50 of your holiday gifts are on me.”

750 customers were given Walmart gift cards in the amount of $50, totaling a hefty $37,500 for Bey. Each card was packaged in envelopes that read “Happy Holidays from Beyonce.”
