OFFICER DEFERRED COMPENSATION PLAN

ARTICLE I.

GENERAL

1.1 Purpose.

The purpose of the Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. Officer Deferred Compensation Plan is to: (a) attract and retain the valuable services of certain officers; (b) recognize, reward, and encourage contributions by such officers to the success of Wal-Mart and its Related Affiliates; (c) enable such officers to defer certain compensation and bonuses, and to be credited with earnings and Incentive Payments with respect to such amounts recognized hereunder for such purposes; and (d) allow certain equity incentive awards deferred under the Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. Stock Incentive Plan of 2005 to be credited under this Plan at the election of the grantee and to thereafter be subject to the terms of this Plan.

1.2 Effective Dates; Code Section 409A.

(a)

This Plan was initially effective February l, 1996 and was most recently amended and restated as of January 1, 2005. This amendment and restatement is effective January 1, 2009, except as otherwise expressly stated herein. The terms of the Plan as stated herein (other than Appendix A) shall apply to all amounts deferred and vested under the Plan on or after January 1, 2005. This Plan (other than Appendix A) shall be interpreted and applied at all times in accordance with Code Section 409A, and guidance issued thereunder.

(b)

Amounts deferred and vested under the Plan on or before December 31, 2004 shall continue to be governed at all times by the Plan as in effect on such date, which Plan is attached hereto as Appendix A. Appendix A shall not be materially modified (within the meaning of Code Section 409A) (formally or informally, including by interpretation), unless such modification expressly provides that it is intended to be a material modification within the meaning of Code Section 409A and guidance issued thereunder.

1.3 Nature of Plan.

The Plan is intended to be (and shall be administered as) an unfunded employee pension plan benefiting a select group of management or highly compensated employees under the provisions of ERISA. The Plan shall be "unfunded" for tax purposes and for purposes of Title I of ERISA. Any and all payments under the Plan shall be made solely from the general assets of Wal-Mart. A Participant153s interests under the Plan do not represent or create a claim against specific assets of Wal-Mart or any Employer. Nothing herein shall be deemed to create a trust of any kind or create any fiduciary relationship between the Committee, Wal-Mart or any Employer and a Participant, the Participant153s beneficiary or any other person. To the extent any person acquires a right to receive payments from Wal-Mart under this Plan, such right is no greater than the right of any other unsecured general creditor of Wal-Mart.

For purposes of this rule, an Eligible Officer will not be treated as a participant in any such plan if:

he or she was paid all amounts previously due under the Plan (and the SIP Deferral Procedures and any other plan required by Code Section 409A to be aggregated with this Plan) and, on and before the date of the last such payment, was not eligible to continue to participate in the Plan (and the SIP Deferral Procedures and any other plan required by Code Section 409A to be aggregated with this Plan) for periods after such payment.

A deferral election under this Section 3.1(b)(2) will be effective only with respect to Compensation for payroll periods beginning after the payroll period in which the Eligible Officer153s election form (which may be electronic) is received by the Global Benefits Department.

(c)

3.2 Deferred Bonuses.

(a)

Each Eligible Officer may elect to defer all or a portion of the Eligible Officer153s bonus (if any) for a performance period under the MIP.

(b)

Bonus deferral elections must be filed:

for performance periods under the MIP beginning before January 1, 2009, within the time period provided under applicable prior Plan documents;

(2)

for performance periods under the MIP beginning on or after January 1, 2009, the bonus deferral election must be filed:

(A)

no later than the December 31 preceding the performance period for which the deferral election is to be effective; or

with respect to an Eligible Officer who first becomes a Participant during the Plan Year, within thirty (30) days of the first date he or she becomes eligible to participate in this Plan, the SIP Deferral Procedures, or any other plan required by Code Section 409A to be aggregated with this Plan. For purposes of this rule, an Eligible Officer will not be treated as a participant in any such plan if:

(i)

he or she was not eligible to participate in the Plan (or the SIP Deferral Procedures or any other plan required by Code Section 409A to be aggregated with this Plan) at any time during the twenty-four (24)-month period ending on the date he or she again becomes an Eligible Officer, or

(ii)

he or she was paid all amounts previously due under the Plan (and the SIP Deferral Procedures and any other plan required by Code Section 409A to be aggregated with this Plan) and, on and before the date of the last such payment, was not eligible to continue to participate in the Plan (and

- 8 -


the SIP Deferral Procedures and any other plan required by Code Section 409A to be aggregated with this Plan) for periods after such payment.

A bonus deferral election under this Section 3.2(b)(2)(B) will be effective only with respect to bonus paid for services performed after such election. For this purpose, the amount of the bonus payable to the Eligible Officer for services rendered subsequent to the Eligible Officer153s election will be determined by multiplying the bonus by a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of calendar days remaining in the performance period after the election and the denominator of which is the total number of calendar days in such performance period. For purposes of this Section 3.2(b)(2)(B), the date of an Eligible Officer153s election is the date the executed election form (which may be electronic) is received by the Global Benefits Department.

(c)

Effective with respect to performance periods under the MIP beginning on or after January 1, 2009, the Eligible Officer shall also make an election within the time prescribed above to allocate his or her bonus deferrals to one or both of his or her Retirement Accounts.

(A)

he or she was not eligible to participate in the Plan (or the SIP Deferral Procedures or any other plan required by Code Section 409A to be aggregated with this Plan) at any time during the twenty-four (24)-month period ending on the date he or she again becomes an Eligible Officer, or

(B)

he or she was paid all amounts previously due under the Plan (and the SIP Deferral Procedures and any other plan required by Code Section 409A to be aggregated with this Plan) and, on and before the date of the last such payment, was not eligible to continue to participate in the Plan (and the SIP Deferral Procedures and any other plan required by Code Section 409A to be aggregated with this Plan) for periods after such payment.

(c)

Effective with respect to Special Bonus deferral elections made on or after January 1, 2009, the Eligible Officer shall also make an election within the time prescribed above to allocate his or her Special Bonus deferrals to one or both of his or her Retirement Accounts. If such allocation will be the first allocation to a Retirement Account, the Eligible Officer shall also elect the form of distribution with respect to such Account.

If an Eligible Officer allocates deferrals to a new Scheduled In-Service Account, he or she must also designate the Scheduled Pay Date with respect to such Account.

- 10 -


(c)

Effective with respect to Retention Bonus deferral elections made on or after January 1, 2009, the Eligible Officer shall also make an election within the time prescribed above to allocate his or her Retention Bonus deferrals to one or both of his or her Retirement Accounts. If such allocation will be the first allocation to a Retirement Account, the Eligible Officer shall also elect the form of distribution with respect to such Account.

If an Eligible Officer allocates deferrals to a new Scheduled In-Service Account, he or she must also designate the Scheduled Pay Date with respect to such Account.

3.5 Incentive Payments.

An Eligible Officer who first becomes a Participant after December 31, 2008 must make an election with respect to the allocation of his or her Incentive Payments, if any, between his or her Retirement Accounts. Such election must be made within the earliest of the time periods applicable under Sections 3.1, 3.2, 3.3. and 3.4 for making an initial deferral election for the first Plan Year of participation. In the event the Participant fails to make a timely election with respect to the allocation of his or her Incentive Payments, the Participant shall be deemed to have elected to have his or her Incentive Payments allocated entirely to his or her Retirement Account #1. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, once made (or deemed made), a Participant153s allocation election under this Section 3.5 is irrevocable.

3.6 Irrevocability of Deferral Elections.

(a)

Except as otherwise provided herein, once made for a Plan Year, a deferral election under Sections 3.1(b)(1), 3.1(c), 3.2(b)(1), 3.2(c), 3.3(b)(1), 3.3(c), 3.4(b) and 3.4(c) may not be revoked, changed or modified after the applicable filing deadline specified in such sections, and a deferral election under Sections 3.1(b)(2) and Section 3.2(b)(2) may not be revoked, changed or modified after the date of the election as provided in Sections 3.1(b)(2) and 3.2(b)(2). An election for one Plan Year will not automatically be given effect for a subsequent Plan Year, so that if deferral is desired for a subsequent Plan Year, a separate election must be made by the Eligible Officer for such Plan Year or performance period. Notwithstanding the preceding, if an Eligible Officer makes a deferral election for a Plan Year but fails to make an election as to the allocation of deferrals for such Plan Year among his or her Accounts, such deferrals shall be allocated based on source in the same manner as they were allocated for such source for the last Plan Year for which the Participant made an allocation election or, if none, equally to his or her then effective Retirement Accounts.

(b)

In the event an Eligible Officer has a Separation from Service for any reason, then: (1) his or her deferral election under Section 3.1 will terminate as of the date of such Separation from Service (but will be effective with respect to the

- 11 -


last regular paycheck issued to such Eligible Officer), regardless of whether the Eligible Officer continues to receive Compensation, or other remuneration, from Wal-Mart or any Employer thereafter; (2) his or her deferral election under Section 3.2 will remain in effect with respect to the bonus (if any) paid to him or her under the MIP for the performance period in which such Separation from Service occurs; (3) his or her deferral election under Section 3.3 will remain in effect with respect to any Special Bonus (if any) paid to him or her to which such election relates; and (4) his or her deferral election under Section 3.4 will remain in effect with respect to any Retention Bonus (if any) paid to him or her to which such election relates.

(c)

If an Eligible Officer has a Separation from Service for any reason and is rehired (whether or not as an Eligible Officer) within the same Plan Year or performance period, as applicable, his or her deferral elections under Sections 3.1, 3.2, 3.3 and 3.4 shall be automatically reinstated and shall remain in effect for the remainder of such Plan Year or performance period, as applicable.

(d)

In the event an Eligible Officer ceases to be an Eligible Officer (other than on account of a Separation from Service):

(1)

during any Plan Year, then his or her deferral election under Section 3.1 will terminate as of the next following December 31. In addition, in the event the Compensation of such individual is reduced as a result of the change in status, his or her deferral election following such loss and through the date of termination of such election as provided in the preceding sentence will be pro rated based on his or her new level of Compensation;

(2)

(4)

then his or her deferral election under Section 3.4 shall continue in effect with respect to any Retention Bonuses (if any) paid after such loss of Eligible Officer status.

(e)

Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, in the event an Eligible Officer goes on an unpaid leave of absence, his or her deferral election under Section 3.1 shall automatically cease when he or she commences the unpaid leave of absence; provided, however, that if he or she returns from the unpaid leave of absence during the same Plan Year, his or deferral election under Section 3.1 shall automatically resume immediately upon return from the leave of absence and shall continue in effect for the balance of the Plan Year. An Eligible

- 12 -


Officer153s deferral election under Section 3.1 shall remain in effect with respect to any Compensation paid while on a leave of Absence. An Eligible Officer153s deferral elections under Sections 3.2, 3.3 and 3.4 shall not be affected by his or her leave of absence.

3.7 Automatic Suspension of Deferral Elections.

(a)

In the event a Participant receives a distribution from the Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. Profit Sharing and 401(k) Plan (or any other plan or successor plan sponsored by Wal-Mart or any Related Affiliate) on account of hardship, which distribution is made pursuant to Treasury Regulations Section 1.401(k)-1(d)(3) and requires suspension of deferrals under other arrangements such as this Plan, the Participant153s deferral elections under Sections 3.1, 3.2, 3.3 and 3.4, if any, pursuant to which deferrals would otherwise be made during the six (6)-month period following the date of the distribution shall be cancelled.

(b)

In the event a Participant requests a distribution pursuant to Section 5.5 due to an Unforeseeable Emergency, or the Participant requests a cancellation of deferrals under the Plan in order to alleviate his or her Unforeseeable Emergency, and the Committee determines that the Participant153s Unforeseeable Emergency may be relieved through the cessation of deferrals under the Plan, some or all the Participant153s deferral elections under Sections 3.1, 3.2, 3.3 and 3.4 for such Plan Year or performance period, as applicable, if any, as determined by the Committee, shall be cancelled as soon as administratively practicable following such determination by the Committee.

3.8 Employer Contribution Credits.

As of any date during a Plan Year, Wal-Mart may credit to a Participant153s Company Account an amount determined in the sole discretion of the Committee, which amount may differ among Participants or categories of Participants designated by the Committee. A Participant shall become vested in his or her Company Account, plus earnings thereon, in accordance with the vesting schedule imposed by the Committee. The Participant153s Company Account shall be distributed pursuant to Article V only to the extent vested as of the applicable distribution date.

3.9 Crediting of Deferrals and Employer Contribution Credits.

Deferred Compensation, Deferred Bonuses, Deferred Special Bonuses, Deferred Retention Bonuses, Deferred Equity, Employer Contribution Credits and Incentive Payments will be credited to each Participant153s Account as follows:

(a)

Deferred Bonuses, Deferred Special Bonuses and Deferred Retention Bonuses will be credited to the Participant153s Account as of the date the bonus would have otherwise been paid in cash;

- 13 -


(c)

Deferred Equity will be credited to the Participant153s Account as of the date the restrictions on such awards lapse or, in the case of Performance Shares, as of the date payment of such award is processed;

(d)

Employer Contribution Credits will be credited to the Participant153s Account as of the date specified by the Committee; and

(e)

Incentive Payments will be credited to the Participant153s Account as of the last day of the Plan Year specified in Section 4.2 (or as otherwise provided in Sections 4.2(e) and (f)).

A Participant153s Account, including earnings credited thereto, will be maintained by the Committee until the Participant153s Plan benefits have been paid in full.

3.10 Nature of Accounts.

Each Participant153s Account will be used solely as a measuring device to determine the amount to be paid a Participant under this Plan. The Accounts do not constitute, nor will they be treated as, property or a trust fund of any kind. All amounts at any time attributable to a Participant153s Account will be, and remain, the sole property of Wal-Mart. A Participant153s rights hereunder are limited to the right to receive Plan benefits as provided herein. The Plan represents an unsecured promise by Wal-Mart to pay the benefits provided by the Plan.

3.11 Valuation of Accounts.

Effective April 1, 2008, each Participant153s Account will be valued daily as of each Valuation Date.

ARTICLE IV.

ADDITIONS TO ACCOUNTS : CREDITED EARNINGS

AND INCENTIVE PAYMENTS

4.1 Credited Earnings.

Every Valuation Date during a Plan Year, a Participant153s Account will be credited with an equivalent of a daily rate of simple interest based on the annual rate on 10-year Treasury notes determined as of the first business day of January preceding such Plan Year, plus 270 basis points.

4.2 Incentive Payments.

The Incentive Payments described below will be credited to a Participant153s Account. A Participant153s entitlement to an Incentive Payment will be governed by this Section 4.2.

(a)

The Incentive Payments provided in this Section apply to a Participant153s recognized Deferred Compensation and Deferred Bonuses for a Plan Year (other than Deferred Compensation and Deferred Bonuses allocated to the Participant153s Scheduled In-Service Accounts) and credited Plan earnings

- 14 -


thereon, whether credited to the Participant153s Account or Grandfathered Account. For this purpose, Deferred Bonuses shall be treated as being "for a Plan Year" for the Plan Year to which the Deferred Bonus pertains. Incentive Payments are separately awarded based upon a Participant153s recognized Deferred Compensation and Deferred Bonuses for a given Plan Year and credited Plan earnings thereon.

(b)

The amount of an Incentive Payment is based on the Participant153s recognized Deferred Compensation and Deferred Bonuses for a Plan Year (other than Deferred Compensation and Deferred Bonuses allocated to the Participant153s Scheduled In-Service Accounts), plus credited Plan earnings on such sums through and including the Incentive Payment award date. The amount by which a Participant153s Deferred Compensation and Deferred Bonuses for a Plan Year (other than Deferred Compensation and Deferred Bonuses allocated to the Participant153s Scheduled In-Service Accounts) exceed twenty percent (20%) of the Participant153s base compensation will not be recognized in computing an Incentive Payment. Base compensation for this purpose means the Participant153s annual base rate of compensation for the last full payroll period in such Plan Year. Credited Plan earnings on such nonrecognized Deferred Compensation or Deferred Bonuses are likewise not taken into account in determining the amount of an Incentive Payment. Further, in no event shall Deferred Special Bonuses, Deferred Retention Bonuses, Deferred Equity or any Employer Contribution Credits be taken into account in determining the amount of an Incentive Payment.

(c)

If a Participant remains continuously employed with Wal-Mart or any Employer for a period of ten (10) consecutive full Plan Years, beginning with the first day of the first Plan Year in which the Participant had a Deferred Compensation or Deferred Bonus election in effect under this Plan or a Prior Agreement, and ending with the last day of the tenth (10th) Plan Year of such period, an Incentive Payment will be credited to the Participant153s Account as of the last day of such tenth (10th) Plan Year. The Incentive Payment will be equal to twenty percent (20%) of the Participant153s recognized Deferred Compensation and Deferred Bonuses for ten (10), but not less than five (5), Plan Years (i.e., the first six (6) Plan Years of such ten (10)-year period), plus credited Plan earnings thereon through the award date. For each full Plan Year thereafter in which the Participant remains continuously employed with Wal-Mart or any Employer, an Incentive Payment will be credited to the Participant153s Account as of the last day of such Plan Year. Such Incentive Payment will be equal to twenty percent (20%) of the Participant153s recognized Deferred Compensation and Deferred Bonuses for the first Plan Year of the five (5)-consecutive Plan Year period ending on the award date, plus credited Plan earnings thereon through the award date.

(d)

If a Participant remains continuously employed with Wal-Mart or any Employer for a period of fifteen (15) consecutive full Plan Years, beginning with the first day of the first Plan Year in which the Participant had a Deferred Compensation

- 15 -


or Deferred Bonus election in effect under this Plan or a Prior Agreement, and ending with the last day of the fifteenth (15th) Plan Year of such period, an Incentive Payment will be credited to the Participant153s Account as of the last day of such fifteenth (15th) Plan Year. The Incentive Payment will be equal to ten percent (10%) of the Participant153s recognized Deferred Compensation and Deferred Bonuses for fifteen (15), but not less than ten (10), Plan Years (i.e., the first six (6) Plan Years of such fifteen (15)-year period), plus credited Plan earnings thereon through the award date. For each full Plan Year thereafter in which the Participant remains continuously employed with Wal-Mart or any Employer, an Incentive Payment will be credited to the Participant153s Account as of the last day of such Plan Year. Such Incentive Payment will be equal to ten percent (10%) of the Participant153s recognized Deferred Compensation and Deferred Bonuses for the first Plan Year of the ten (10)-consecutive Plan Year period ending on the award date, plus credited Plan earnings thereon through the award date. The Incentive Payments provided in this Section 4.2(d) shall not take into account Incentive Payments credited under Section 4.2(c) or credited Plan earnings thereon.

(e)

The Incentive Payments provided in this Section 4.2(e) only apply if a Participant has been a Participant under the Plan (or a Prior Agreement) for five (5) or more full Plan Years and if the Participant dies, becomes Disabled, or has a Separation from Service on or after he or she has been continuously employed with Wal-Mart or an Employer for twenty (20) or more years or after attaining age fifty-five (55) before satisfaction of the ten (10)-year or fifteen (15)-year periods described in Sections 4.2(c) and (d) above, after taking into account the application of Section 4.2(f). In that event, only the Incentive Payment next to be credited (i.e., twenty percent (20%) or ten percent (10%)) will be credited to the Participant153s Account as provided in this Section 4.2(e). In the event the Participant had not yet been awarded or credited with a twenty percent (20%) Incentive Payment under Section 4.2(c), the Incentive Payment provided by this Section 4.2(e) will be based upon the ratio of: (1) the number of full Plan Years worked since and including the first Plan Year in which the Participant had a Deferred Compensation or Deferred Bonus election in effect under this Plan or a Prior Agreement, to (2) ten (10), multiplied by twenty percent (20%). Such Incentive Payment will be based upon recognized amounts for the Plan Years which would otherwise have been considered in calculating the Participant153s first Incentive Payment under Section 4.2(c). If the Participant has been awarded a twenty percent (20%) Incentive Payment provided in Section 4.2(c), the Incentive Payment provided by this Section 4.2(e) will be based upon the ratio of: (1) the number of full Plan Years worked since the award date of the initial twenty percent (20%) Incentive Payment, to (2) five (5), multiplied by ten percent (10%). Such Incentive Payment will be based upon recognized amounts for the Plan Years which would otherwise have been considered in calculating the Participant153s first Incentive Payment under Section 4.2(d). The Incentive Payment provided under this Section 4.2(e) will be determined and credited to the Participant153s Account as of the date the Participant153s Plan benefits are distributed in a lump sum payment. If, however, a Participant153s

- 16 -


benefits are to be distributed in installments, the amounts provided under this Section 4.2(e) will be determined and credited to the Participant153s Account as of the distribution date of the initial installment.

(f)

This Section 4.2(f) shall not apply with respect to Plan Years beginning after March 31, 2009. With respect to Plan Years beginning before March 31, 2009, the Incentive Payments provided in this Section 4.2(f) apply only with respect to those Participants who: (1) incur a Separation from Service on or after the last day of a Fiscal Year, but before the immediately following last day of a Plan Year (e.g., on or after January 31, but before the next March 31); and (2) who, but for such Separation from Service before the last day of a Plan Year, would have been credited with an Incentive Payment under Section 4.2(c) and/or 4.2(d). In that event, the Incentive Payments which would have been credited to the Participant153s Account but for such early Separation from Service will be credited to the Participant153s Account as if the Participant had remained employed with Wal-Mart or any Employer through the last day of the Plan Year, with no reduction due to the early Separation from Service. The Incentive Payments provided under this Section 4.2(f) will be determined and credited to the Participant153s Account as of the last day of the Plan Year in which the Participant153s Separation from Service occurs.

(b)

Retirement Accounts

.

(1)

The Account balance of a Participant as of December 31, 2008 shall, as of such date, be allocated to his or her Retirement Accounts in a manner determined by the Global Benefits Department to be consistent with his or her last affirmative form of payment election filed with the Global Benefits Department on or before December 31, 2008; provided, however, that in no event may any such election made in 2008 defer any amount otherwise payable during 2008 to 2009 or any later year or accelerate any amount otherwise payable during 2009 or any later year into 2008. (Notwithstanding the preceding, in the event a Participant153s affirmative form of payment outstanding on December 31, 2008 is an "account balance-driven" election, the Participant153s Account shall be allocated as of such date in accordance with his or her election, as though distribution would occur on December 31, 2008.) Deferrals (including Employer Contribution Credits and Incentive Payments) credited to the Participant153s Account after December 31, 2008 and through March 31, 2009 shall also be allocated to the Participant153s Retirement Accounts in accordance with such election. Any form of payment election filed during 2008 shall be deemed to have been made under applicable Internal Revenue Service transition relief (and thus shall not be subject to Sections 5.4(d)(1), (d)(2) and (d)(3)), unless the Participant specifically waives such transition relief. Any distribution election made after December 31, 2008 shall be subject to Section 5.4(d).

(2)

With respect to any individual who is a Participant as of December 31, 2008, Incentive Payments credited after March 31, 2009, if any, will be allocated to his or her Retirement Accounts in accordance with his or her last affirmative form of payment election filed with the Global Benefits Department on or before December 31, 2008, which election may be separate from the election provided in Section 5.4(b)(1) above. Such election shall be irrevocable as of December 31, 2008.

(c)

Company Account

. A Participant153s Company Account shall be paid in the form of a lump sum, unless the Participant makes a subsequent distribution election in accordance with Section 5.4(d).

- 21 -


this Section 5.4 at any time by making a new election (referred to in this subsection as a "subsequent election") on a form (which may be electronic) approved by the Global Benefits Department and filed with the Global Benefits Department; provided, however, that such subsequent election shall be subject to the following restrictions:

(1)

A subsequent election made after December 31, 2008 may not take effect until at least twelve (12) months after the date on which such subsequent election is made;

(2)

Payment or initial payment pursuant to a subsequent election made after December 31, 2008 may not be made earlier than five (5) years from the date such payment would have been made absent the subsequent election (but, for this purpose, installment payments shall not commence until the first January 31 after such delay), unless the distribution is made on account of the Participant153s death;

(3)

A subsequent election made after December 31, 2008 related to a payment must be made not less than twelve (12) months before the date the payment is scheduled to be paid;

(4)

Payment of a Participant153s Company Account or Retirement Account or, in the event of death, Account, pursuant to a subsequent election must be completed by the last day of the Plan Year which contains the twentieth (20th) anniversary of the Participant153s Separation Pay Date or the Participant153s death;

(5)

For purposes of this Section 5.4(d) and Code Section 409A, the entitlement to annual installment payments is treated as the entitlement to a single payment;

(6)

A Participant may make only one subsequent election after December 31, 2008 with respect to each of his or her Company Account and Retirement Accounts, and with respect to his or her Account in the event of death; provided, however, that any Participant who makes a form of payment election during 2008 and who elects to waive transition relief as provided in Section 5.4(b)(1) shall not be permitted to make a subsequent election after December 31, 2008 with respect to his or her Retirement Accounts.

If a Participant153s distribution election does not satisfy the requirements of this Section 5.4(d), it will not be recognized or given effect by the Committee. In that event, distribution of the benefit will be made in accordance with the Participant153s most recent distribution election which does satisfy the requirements of this Section 5.4(d).

(e)

Filing of Election

. A Participant153s distribution elections under Section 5.2(b) or 5.3(a) must be filed with the Global Benefits Department on forms (which may be electronic) prescribed by the Global Benefits Department.

- 22 -


5.5 Distributions for Unforeseeable Emergencies.

(a)

In the event of an Unforeseeable Emergency, the Committee, in its sole and absolute discretion and upon written application of a Participant or, following the Participant153s death, the beneficiary to whom a Participant153s benefits are then being paid, or will be paid, pursuant to Section 5.3, may direct immediate distribution of all or a portion of the Participant153s Account (other than Employer Contribution Credits and Incentive Payments). The Committee will permit distribution on account of an Unforeseeable Emergency only to the extent reasonably necessary to satisfy the emergency need, plus amounts necessary to pay federal, state or local income taxes and penalties reasonably anticipated to result from the distribution, after taking into account the extent to which such need is or may be relieved through reimbursement or compensation by insurance, by liquidation of the Participant153s or beneficiary153s assets (to the extent the liquidation of such assets would not itself cause severe financial hardship), or by cessation of deferrals under the Plan. Any distribution under this Section 5.5 shall first be made from the Participant153s Scheduled In-Service Accounts (including earnings thereon), then from his or her Retirement Accounts (including earnings thereon) in the following order: Deferred Equity, Deferred Special Bonuses and Deferred Retention Bonuses, then pro rata from Deferred Compensation and Deferred Bonus. A Participant153s Incentive Payments under Section 4.2 shall be ratably adjusted consistent with the above.

(b)

Notwithstanding anything in the Plan to the contrary, if Wal-Mart reasonably anticipates that its deduction with respect to any distribution under this Section 5.5 would not be permitted due to the application of Code Section 162(m); such payment shall be suspended to the extent a deduction would not be permitted until the earliest date at which it reasonably anticipates that the deduction of such distribution would not be barred by application of Code Section 162(m); provided, however, that the conditions of Section 5.5(a) are still satisfied as of such date.

5.6 Reductions Arising from a Participant153s Gross Misconduct.

Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, a Participant153s Plan benefits are contingent upon the Participant not engaging in Gross Misconduct while employed with Wal-Mart or any Employer, or during such additional period as provided in Wal-Mart153s Statement of Ethics. In the event the Committee determines that the Participant has engaged in Gross Misconduct during the prescribed period: (a) the Participant shall forfeit all Employer Contribution Credits and Incentive Payments, and credited Plan earnings thereon; (b) earnings credited to the Participant153s Account derived from Deferred Compensation, Deferred Bonuses, Deferred Special Bonuses, Deferred Retention Bonuses and Deferred Equity shall be recalculated for each Plan Year to reflect the amount which would otherwise have been credited if the applicable per annum rate were fifty percent (50%) of the per annum rate in effect for such Plan Year; and (c) if the Participant is then receiving installment payments, any remaining installments shall be recalculated to reflect the amount which would otherwise have been paid if the applicable per annum rate were fifty percent (50%) of the per annum rate in

- 23 -


effect with respect to such installment payments. Under no circumstances will a Participant forfeit any portion of the Participant153s Deferred Compensation, Deferred Bonuses, Deferred Special Bonuses, Deferred Retention Bonuses or Deferred Equity. Any payments received hereunder by a Participant (or the Participant153s beneficiary) are contingent upon the Participant not engaging (or not having engaged) in Gross Misconduct while employed with Wal-Mart or any Employer, or during such additional period as provided in Wal-Mart153s Statement of Ethics. If the Committee determines, after payment of amounts hereunder, that the Participant has engaged in Gross Misconduct during the prescribed period, the Participant (or the Participant153s beneficiary) shall repay to Wal-Mart, or the applicable Employer, any amount in excess of that to which the Participant is entitled under this Section 5.6.

The Committee may appoint a person or persons to act on behalf of, or to assist, the Committee in the administration of the Plan, establishment of forms (including electronic forms) desirable for Plan operation, and such other matters as the Committee deems necessary or appropriate;

The decision of the Committee in matters pertaining to this Plan shall be final, binding, and conclusive upon Wal-Mart, any Related Affiliate, the Participant, the Participant153s beneficiary, and upon any person affected by such decision, subject to the claims procedure set forth in Article VII; and

(e)

In any matter relating solely to a Committee member153s individual rights or benefits under this Plan, such Committee member shall not participate in any Committee proceeding pertaining to, or vote on, such matter.

- 24 -


6.2 Allocation and Delegation of Duties.

(a)

The Committee shall have the authority to allocate, from time to time, by instrument in writing filed in its records, all or any part of its respective responsibilities under the Plan to one or more of its members as may be deemed advisable, and in the same manner to revoke such allocation of responsibilities. In the exercise of such allocated responsibilities, any action of the member to whom responsibilities are allocated shall have the same force and effect for all purposes hereunder as if such action had been taken by the Committee.

Any action of the delegate in the exercise of such delegated responsibilities shall have the same force and effect for all purposes hereunder as if such action had been taken by the Committee. The Committee shall not be liable for any acts or omissions of any such delegate. The delegate shall periodically report to the Committee concerning the discharge of the delegated responsibilities.

Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, the Plan may not be amended, suspended or terminated to cause a Participant to forfeit the Participant153s then-existing Account.

Notwithstanding the preceding, Wal-Mart may, by action of the Committee within the thirty (30) days preceding or twelve (12) months following a change in control (within the meaning of Code Section 409A) of a relevant affiliate, partially terminate the Plan and distribute benefits to all Participants involved in such change in control within twelve (12) months after such action, provided that all plans sponsored by the service recipient immediately after the change in control (which are required to be aggregated with this Plan pursuant to Code Section 409A) are also terminated and liquidated with respect to each Participant involved in the change in control.

8.2 Non-Alienability.

No interest or amounts payable under the Plan may be subject in any manner to anticipation, alienation, sale, transfer, assignment, pledge, encumbrance, charge, garnishment, execution or levy of any kind, whether voluntary or involuntary.

In the event any payments under the Plan are made on account of a mistake of fact or law, the recipient shall return such payment or overpayment to Wal-Mart as requested by Wal-Mart.

8.5 No Right to Bonus.

Nothing contained herein shall be construed as conferring upon the Participant the right to receive a bonus from the MIP and any award under the Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. Stock Incentive Plan of 2005. A Participant153s entitlement to such a bonus or award is governed solely by the provisions of those plans.

8.6 Withholding and Employment Taxes.

To the extent required by law, Wal-Mart or a Related Affiliate will withhold from a Participant153s current compensation such taxes as are required to be withheld for employment taxes. To the extent required by law, Wal-Mart or a Related Affiliate will withhold from a Participant153s Plan distributions such taxes as are required to be withheld for federal, Puerto Rican, state or local government income tax purposes.

8.7 Income and Excise Taxes.

The Participant (or the Participant153s Beneficiaries) is solely responsible for the payment of all federal, Puerto Rican, state and local income and excise taxes resulting from the Participant153s participation in this Plan.

APPENDIX A

Amounts deferred and vested on or before December 31, 2004 are subject to the terms of the Plan as it existed as of such date, which Plan is set forth in this Appendix A. The terms of this Appendix A shall not be materially modified (as that phrase is defined by Code Section 409A and guidance thereunder), either formally or informally, unless such modification specifically provides that it is intended to be a material modification within the meaning of Code Section 409A and guidance thereunder.

WAL-MART STORES, INC.

OFFICER DEFERRED COMPENSATION PLAN

ARTICLE I.

GENERAL

1.1 Purpose.

The purpose of the Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. Officer Deferred Compensation Plan ("Plan") is to: (a) attract and retain the valuable services of certain officers; (b) recognize, reward, and encourage contributions by such officers to the success of Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. ("Wal-Mart") and its Related Affiliates; and (c) enable such officers to defer certain compensation and bonuses, and to be credited with earnings and Incentive Payments with respect to such amounts.

1.2 Applicability to Prior Deferred Compensation Agreements; Effective Date.

This Plan was initially effective February l, 1996 with respect to compensation and bonuses deferred (and credited earnings thereon) under the Plan on or after February 1, 1996. In addition, prior to February 1, 1995, certain Eligible Officers entered into deferred compensation agreements ("Prior Agreements") with Wal-Mart containing terms similar to those contained in this Plan. Except as expressly provided herein, effective February 1, 1996 the Prior Agreements were amended and restated in the form of this Plan.

The Plan as initially adopted effective February 1, 1996, was amended from time-to-time, most recently by Amendment No. Three to the February 1, 1997 amended and restated Plan. The effective date of this amended and restated Plan is March 31, 2003, except as otherwise expressly provided herein.

1.3 Nature of Plan.

The Plan is intended to be (and shall be administered as) an unfunded employee pension plan benefiting a select group of management or highly compensated employees under the provisions of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 ("ERISA"). The Plan shall


be "unfunded" for tax purposes and for purposes of Title I of ERISA. Any and all payments under the Plan shall be made solely from the general assets of Wal-Mart and, to the extent such payments or benefits are attributable to services with a respective Related Affiliate or Related Affiliates, such Related Affiliate or Related Affiliates. For this purpose, payments or benefits under the Plan are deemed to be attributable to services with the last Related Affiliate by whom the Participant was employed at or prior to the time benefits become payable under Article V. A Participant153s interests under the Plan do not represent or create a claim against specific assets of Wal-Mart or any Related Affiliate. Nothing herein shall be deemed to create a trust of any kind or create any fiduciary relationship between Wal-Mart, any Related Affiliate or the Committee, and a Participant, the Participant153s beneficiary or any other person. To the extent any person acquires a right to receive payments from Wal-Mart or a Related Affiliate under this Plan, such right is no greater than the right of any other unsecured general creditor of Wal-Mart or such Related Affiliate.

ARTICLE III.

DEFERRED COMPENSATION AND BONUSES:

ESTABLISHMENT OF ACCOUNTS

3.1 Deferred Compensation.

For each Plan Year, each Eligible Officer may elect to defer all or a portion of what would otherwise be the Eligible Officer153s federal taxable base compensation, net of employment taxes and estimated bi-weekly deductions as are determined to be in effect on the first day of the deferral period, to be paid for such Plan Year by Wal-Mart or a Related Affiliate designated by Wal-Mart as a participating employer. Amounts deferred (the "Deferred Compensation") will be deferred pro ratably for each payroll period of the Plan Year. All deferral elections made under this Section 3.1 must be filed with the Committee on forms approved by the Committee. Deferral elections must be (a) filed no later than the day preceding the Plan Year for which the deferral election is to be effective; or (b) with respect to an Eligible Officer appointed during the Plan Year, within thirty (30) days of such appointment. Individuals appointed as Eligible Officers on or after April 1, 2003 and before October 1, 2003 shall have thirty (30) days from such latter date to file a deferral election for the balance of the Plan Year.

Once made for a Plan Year, a deferral election may not be revoked, changed or modified. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, in the event an Eligible Officer ceases to be employed as an Eligible Officer, such former Eligible Officer153s deferral election shall automatically cease with respect to compensation earned on or after the individual ceases to be an Eligible Officer. A deferral election for one (1) Plan Year will not automatically be given effect for a subsequent Plan Year, so that if deferrals are desired for a subsequent Plan Year, a separate election must be made by the Eligible Officer for such Plan Year. An Eligible Officer153s deferral election shall remain in effect with respect to any portion of base compensation paid while on a leave of absence, and, if the leave of absence is unpaid, shall resume upon return from the leave of absence during the same Plan Year and shall continue in effect for the balance of such Plan Year.

3.2 Deferred Bonuses.

Each Eligible Officer may elect to defer all or a portion of the Eligible Officer153s bonus (if any) for a Fiscal Year under the Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. Management Incentive Plan for Officers. All bonus deferral elections made under this Section 3.2 must be made on forms approved by the Committee, and be filed with the Committee: (a) for the 1996-1997 Fiscal Year, no later than January 31, 1996; (b) for Fiscal Years beginning on or after February 1, 1997, no later than the March 31 of the Fiscal Year for which such bonus (if any) is payable; and (c) within thirty (30) days of the individual153s appointment as an Eligible Officer if the Eligible Officer is newly appointed after March 31 of the Fiscal Year. Individuals appointed as Eligible Officers on or after April 1, 2003 and before October 1, 2003 shall have thirty (30) days from such latter date to file a bonus deferral election with respect to the February 1, 2003 - January 31, 2004 Fiscal Year.

- 5 -


Once made for a Fiscal Year, a bonus deferral election may not be revoked, changed or modified. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, in the event an Eligible Officer ceases to be employed as an Eligible Officer but remains employed by Wal-Mart or by one of its Related Affiliates, such former Eligible Officer153s bonus deferral election shall automatically cease with respect to that portion of a bonus earned on or after the date the individual ceases to be an Eligible Officer. For this purpose, the portion of a bonus earned on or after ceasing to be an Eligible Officer shall be determined by multiplying the bonus by a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of calendar days in such Fiscal Year in which the individual ceased to be an Eligible Officer, and the denominator of which is the total calendar days in such Fiscal Year. Effective for those bonuses payable for Fiscal Years beginning on or after February 1, 2003, in the event an Eligible Officer ceases to be employed as an Eligible Officer due to a Termination of Employment, or if an Eligible Officer takes an approved leave of absence, such Eligible Officer153s bonus deferral election shall remain in effect with respect to that portion of a bonus earned while an Eligible Officer, even if such bonus is awarded after a Termination of Employment or while an Eligible Officer is on an approved leave of absence.

With respect to those Eligible Officers appointed on or after the first day of a Plan Year and who elect to defer all or a portion of their bonus (if any) for that initial Fiscal Year, such deferral elections shall apply only to that portion of the bonus earned after the date of such election, by multiplying the bonus by a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of calendar days in such Fiscal Year in which the individual elected to defer all or a portion of their bonus after first becoming appointed as an Eligible Officer, and the denominator of which is the total calendar days in such Fiscal Year. A bonus deferral election for one (1) Fiscal Year will not automatically be given effect for a subsequent Fiscal Year, so that if deferrals are desired for a subsequent Fiscal Year, a separate election must be made by the Eligible Officer for such Fiscal Year.

3.3 Establishment of Grandfathered Accounts.

The Deferred Compensation, Deferred Bonuses, and Incentive Payments will be credited to a bookkeeping account ("Grandfathered Account") established by the Committee on behalf of each Participant. The Deferred Compensation will be credited to the Participant153s Grandfathered Account as of the last day of the Plan Year during which the Deferred Compensation would otherwise be payable to the Participant. The Deferred Bonus will be credited to the Participant153s Grandfathered Account as of the date the bonus would have otherwise been paid in cash. The Incentive Payments will be credited to the Participant153s Grandfathered Account as of the last day of the Plan Year specified in Section 4.2. A Participant153s Grandfathered Account, including earnings credited thereto, will be maintained by the Committee until the Participant153s Plan benefits have been paid in full.

- 6 -


3.4 Nature of Grandfathered Accounts.

Each Participant153s Grandfathered Account will be used solely as a measuring device to determine the amount to be paid a Participant under this Plan. The Grandfathered Accounts do not constitute, nor will they be treated as, property or a trust fund of any kind. All amounts at any time attributable to a Participant153s Grandfathered Account will be, and remain, the sole property of Wal-Mart and its Related Affiliates. A Participant153s rights hereunder are limited to the right to receive Plan benefits as provided herein. The Plan represents an unsecured promise by Wal-Mart and the applicable Related Affiliate to pay the benefits provided by the Plan.

3.5 Annual Valuation of Grandfathered Accounts.

Each Participant153s Grandfathered Account will be valued annually as of each Annual Valuation Date. The value of an Grandfathered Account as of any applicable Annual Valuation Date is the sum of the Grandfathered Account value as of the immediately preceding Annual Valuation Date, the Deferred Compensation, Deferred Bonuses and Incentive Payments allocated as of the applicable Annual Valuation Date, and the equivalent of interest credited to the Grandfathered Account under Section 4.1 as of the applicable Annual Valuation Date, less any distributions for Unforeseeable Emergencies since the preceding Annual Valuation Date but on or before the applicable Annual Valuation Date.

[Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, effective April 1, 2008, Grandfathered Accounts shall be credited with interest on a daily basis. The amount of interest to be credited each day shall be a daily rate of simple interest based on the interest rate in effect for the Plan Year as provided in Section 4.1. Also, effective January 1, 2009, the Plan Year for such purpose shall be the twelve-month period February 1 through January 31, with the period April 1, 2009 through January 31, 2010 being a short Plan Year. This Appendix A shall be construed in accordance with such modifications. It has been determined that these modifications do not constitute "material modifications" for purposes of Code Section 409A.]

ARTICLE IV.

ADDITIONS TO ACCOUNTS : CREDITED EARNINGS

AND INCENTIVE PAYMENTS

4.1 Credited Annual Earnings.

For each Plan Year a Participant153s Grandfathered Account will be credited with the equivalent of interest at the per annum rate established for such Plan Year by the Committee; provided, however, for the February 1, 1997 - March 31, 1997 Plan Year, the equivalent of interest shall be credited at one-sixth (1/6) of the per annum rate so established for such period. The per annum rate may be increased or decreased for any Plan Year to reflect changes in prevailing interest rates, as determined at the sole discretion of the Committee. Except for a Plan Year in which a Participant receives a distribution due to an Unforeseeable Emergency, the amount to be credited to a Participant153s Grandfathered Account as of any Annual Valuation Date is the sum of: (a) the applicable per annum rate multiplied by the Participant153s Grandfathered Account value as of the immediately preceding Annual Valuation Date; (b) fifty percent (50%) of the Participant153s Deferred Compensation for the Plan Year ending on the

- 7 -


Annual Valuation Date multiplied by the applicable full annum rate; and (c) effective for Deferred Bonuses attributable to Fiscal Years beginning on or after February 1, 2003, a pro rata amount of interest equivalent at the applicable per annum rate based upon the number of days from the date such bonus would have otherwise been paid in cash through the applicable Annual Valuation Date.

[NOTE: The annual rate in effect for a Plan Year for this purpose shall be determined in accordance with the following formula in effect as of October 3, 2004: the rate on 10-year Treasury notes determined as of the first business day of January preceding each Plan Year, plus 270 basis points. Such formula shall not be modified on or after October 3, 2004. Notwithstanding the preceding, in light of uncertainty regarding whether adjustment of the annual rate would constitute a material modification of the Plan for Code Section 409A purposes, the annual rate was not adjusted for 2005. The annual rate for 2006 and future years will be adjusted in accordance with the above formula.]

For a Plan Year in which a Participant receives a distribution due to an Unforeseeable Emergency, the amount to be credited to the Participant153s Grandfathered Account as of the applicable Annual Valuation Date is the sum of: (a) an equivalent amount of pro rata interest on the Participant153s Grandfathered Account value as of the preceding Annual Valuation Date based upon the number of full calendar months in the Plan Year which the Grandfathered Account was not reduced due to the distribution; (b) an equivalent amount of pro rata interest on the Grandfathered Account value immediately after the distribution based upon the number of calendar months in the Plan Year in which the Participant153s Grandfathered Account was reduced; (c) fifty percent (50%) of the Participant153s Deferred Compensation for the Plan Year ending on the Annual Valuation Date multiplied by the applicable full annum rate; and (d) effective for Deferred Bonuses attributable to Fiscal Years beginning on or after February 1, 2003, a pro rata amount of interest equivalent at the applicable per annum rate based upon the number of days from the date such bonus would have otherwise been paid in cash through the applicable Annual Valuation Date.

4.2 Incentive Payments.

The Incentive Payments described below will be credited to a Participant153s Grandfathered Account. Incentive Payments awarded and credited to a Participant153s Grandfathered Account under a Prior Agreement (such Incentive Payments were previously referred to as "incentive bonuses" under the Prior Agreements), and credited interest thereon, will remain credited to a Participant153s Grandfathered Account hereunder as of January 31, 1996. Thereafter, a Participant153s entitlement to an Incentive Payment will be governed by this Section 4.2, including any Incentive Payment which may be awarded with respect to recognized Deferred Compensation (and credited earnings thereon) deferred under a Prior Agreement. Incentive Payments hereunder shall not duplicate any Incentive Payment awarded and credited under a Prior Agreement as of January 31, 1996.

(a)

The Incentive Payments provided in this Section apply to a Participant153s recognized Deferred Compensation and Deferred Bonuses for a Plan Year and credited Plan earnings thereon. For this purpose, Deferred Bonuses shall be

- 8 -


treated as being "for a Plan Year" for the Plan Year in which Deferred Bonuses are allocated to a Participant153s Grandfathered Account under Section 3.3. Incentive Payments are separately awarded based upon a Participant153s recognized Deferred Compensation and Deferred Bonuses for a given Plan Year and credited Plan earnings thereon. Solely for purposes of this Section 4.2, the February 1, 1996 - January 31, 1997 Plan Year and the short February 1, 1997 - March 31, 1997 Plan Year shall be treated as one Plan Year running from February 1, 1996 - March 31, 1997.

(b)

The amount of an Incentive Payment is based on the Participant153s recognized Deferred Compensation and Deferred Bonuses for a Plan Year, plus credited Plan earnings on such sums through and including the Incentive Payment award date. The amount by which a Participant153s Deferred Compensation and Deferred Bonuses for a Plan Year exceeds twenty percent (20%) of the Participant153s base compensation will not be recognized in computing an Incentive Payment. Base compensation for this purpose means the Participant153s annual base rate of compensation for such Plan Year (proportionately increased for the special Plan Year of February 1, 1996 - March 31, 1997). Credited Plan earnings on such nonrecognized Deferred Compensation or Deferred Bonuses are likewise not taken into account in determining the amount of an Incentive Payment.

(c)

If a Participant remains continuously employed with Wal-Mart or its Related Affiliates for a period of ten (10) consecutive full Plan Years, beginning with the first day of the first Plan Year in which the Participant had a Deferred Compensation or Deferred Bonus election in effect under this Plan or a Prior Agreement, and ending with the last day of the tenth (10th) Plan Year of such period, an Incentive Payment will be credited to the Participant153s Grandfathered Account as of the last day of such tenth 10th Plan Year. The Incentive Payment will be equal to twenty percent (20%) of the Participant153s recognized Deferred Compensation and Deferred Bonuses for ten (10), but not less than five (5), Plan Years (i.e., the first six (6) Plan Years of such ten (10)-year period), plus credited Plan earnings thereon through the award date. For each full Plan Year thereafter in which the Participant remains continuously employed with Wal-Mart or its Related Affiliates, an Incentive Payment will be credited to the Participant153s Grandfathered Account as of the last day of such Plan Year. Such Incentive Payment will be equal to twenty percent (20%) of the Participant153s recognized Deferred Compensation and Deferred Bonuses for the first Plan Year of the five (5)-consecutive Plan Year period ending on the award date, plus credited Plan earnings thereon through the award date.

(d)

If a Participant remains continuously employed with Wal-Mart or its Related Affiliates for a period of fifteen (15) consecutive full Plan Years, beginning with the first day of the first Plan Year in which the Participant had a Deferred Compensation or Deferred Bonuses election in effect under this Plan or a Prior Agreement, and ending with the last day of the fifteenth (15th) Plan Year of such period, an Incentive Payment will be credited to the Participant153s Grandfathered

- 9 -


Account as of the last day of such fifteenth (15th) Plan Year. The Incentive Payment will be equal to ten percent (10%) of the Participant153s recognized Deferred Compensation and Deferred Bonuses for fifteen (15), but not less than ten (10), Plan Years (i.e., the first six (6) Plan Years of such fifteen (15)-year period), plus credited Plan earnings thereon through the award date. For each full Plan Year thereafter in which the Participant remains continuously employed with Wal-Mart or its Related Affiliates, an Incentive Payment will be credited to the Participant153s Grandfathered Account as of the last day of such Plan Year. Such Incentive Payment will be equal to ten percent (10%) of the Participant153s recognized Deferred Compensation and Deferred Bonuses for the first Plan Year of a ten (10)-consecutive Plan Year period ending on the award date, plus credited Plan earnings thereon through the award date. The Incentive Payments provided in this Section 4.2(d) shall not take into account Incentive Payments credited under Section 4.2(c) or credited Plan earnings thereon.

(e)

The Incentive Payments provided in this Section 4.2(e) only apply if a Participant has been a Participant under the Plan (or a Prior Agreement) for five (5) or more full Plan Years and if the Participant incurs a Retirement, Early Retirement, death or Disability before satisfaction of the ten (10)- or fifteen (15)-year periods described in Sections 4.2 (c) and (d) above, after taking into account the application of Section 4.2(f). In that event, only the Incentive Payment next to be credited (i.e., twenty percent (20%) or ten percent (10%)) will be credited to the Participant153s Grandfathered Account as provided in this Section 4.2(e). In the event the Participant had not yet been awarded or credited with a twenty percent (20 %) Incentive Payment under Section 4.2(c), the Incentive Payment provided by this Section 4.2(e) will be based upon the ratio of (1) the number of full Plan Years worked since and including the first Plan Year in which the Participant had a Deferred Compensation or Deferred Bonus election in effect under this Plan or a Prior Agreement, to (2) ten (10), multiplied by twenty percent (20%). Such Incentive Payment will be based upon recognized amounts for the Plan Years which would otherwise have been considered in calculating the Participant153s first Incentive Payment under Section 4.2(c). If the Participant has been awarded a twenty percent (20 %) Incentive Payment provided in Section 4.2 (c), the Incentive Payment .provided by this Section 4.2(e) will be based upon the ratio of (1) the number of full Plan Years worked since the award date of the initial twenty percent (20%) Incentive Payment, to (2) five (5), multiplied by ten percent (10%). Such Incentive Payment will be based upon recognized amounts for the Plan Years which would otherwise have been considered in calculating the Participant153s first Incentive Payment under Section 4.2(d). The Incentive Payment provided under this Section 4.2(e) will be determined and credited to the Participant153s Grandfathered Account as of the date the Participant153s Plan benefits are distributed in a lump sum payment. If, however, a Participant153s benefits are to be distributed in installments, the amounts provided under this Section 4.2(e) will be determined and credited to the Participant153s Grandfathered Account as of the January 31 on which installments are based.

- 10 -


(f)

The Incentive Payments provided in this Section 4.2(f) apply only with respect to those Participants who: (1) incur a Termination of Employment on or after the last day of a Fiscal Year, but before the immediately following last day of a Plan Year (e.g., on or after January 31, but before the next March 31); and (2) who, but for such Termination of Employment before the last day of a Plan Year, would have been credited with an Incentive Payment under Section 4.2(c) and/or 4.2(d). In that event, the Incentive Payments which would have been credited to the Participant153s Grandfathered Account but for such early Termination of Employment will be credited to the Participant153s Grandfathered Account as if the Participant had remained employed with Wal-Mart or its Related Affiliates through the last day of the Plan Year, with no reduction due to the early Termination of Employment. The Incentive Payments provided under this Section 4.2(f) will be determined and credited to the Participant153s Grandfathered Account as of the date the Participant153s Plan benefits are distributed in a lump sum payment. If, however, a Participant153s benefits are to be distributed in installments, the amounts provided under this Section 4.2(f) will be determined and credited to the Participant153s Grandfathered Account as of the January 31 on which installments are based.

[NOTE: Incentive Payments are frozen under this Appendix A. From and after January 1, 2005, all Incentive Payments shall be made under the Plan, not this Appendix A.

5.5 Designation of Beneficiary.

A Participant may, by written or electronic instrument delivered to the Committee in the form prescribed by the Committee, designate primary and contingent beneficiaries to receive any benefit payments which may be payable under this Plan following the Participant153s death, and may designate the proportions in which such beneficiaries are to receive such payments. Any such designation will apply to both the Participant153s Account (as defined in the Plan) and his or her Grandfathered Account, if any; a Participant may not designate different beneficiaries for his or her Account and Grandfathered Account. A Participant may change such designations from time to time and the last written designation filed with the Committee prior to the Participant153s death will control. In the event no beneficiary is designated, or if the designated beneficiary predeceases the Participant, payment shall be payable to the Participant153s estate. For this purpose, a Participant153s most recent written beneficiary designation properly filed under a Prior Agreement shall continue to be given effect until otherwise modified in accordance with the provisions of this Section.

5.6 Form of Distribution.

If a Participant153s Termination of Employment is due to the Participant153s Retirement, Early Retirement Disability or death, or occurs after the Participant has attained age fifty (50), distribution may be made, at the Participant153s election, in a lump sum or in substantially equal annual installments over a period not to exceed fifteen (15) years; provided, however, with respect to Terminations of Employment occurring on or after October 1, 2003, an installment election will be given effect only if, as of the date on which any lump sum payment would be valued, the participant153s Grandfathered Account is valued at greater than fifty-thousand dollars ($50,000). Any Participant whose Grandfathered Account is valued at less than fifty-thousand dollars as of the date on which any lump sum payment would be valued shall be defaulted to a lump sum payment. A Participant may file a distribution election with the Committee on forms prescribed by the Committee. A distribution election, once given effect under this Section 5.6, will apply to the Participant153s total Plan benefits. A Participant may, however, file a separate election for death benefits payable under Section 5.2 - 5.4. To be given effect under this Section 5.6, any distribution election for benefits payable under Section 5.2 or Section 5.3 to the Participant must have been filed with the Committee at least six (6) full calendar months before the occurrence of an event entitling the Participant to a distribution thereunder. If a Participant153s distribution election has not been on file with the Committee for the full six (6)-month period, it will not be recognized or given effect by the Plan. In that event, distribution will be made in accordance with the Participant153s most recent distribution election which was filed with the Committee at least six (6) months prior to the Participant153s Retirement, Early Retirement, Disability, or Termination of Employment after age fifty (50). The six (6)- month period provided above shall not apply to death benefits payable under Section 5.2 - 5.4. For purposes of this Section 5.6, a Participant153s last distribution election filed with Wal-Mart under a Prior Agreement will be given effect for the Participant153s total Plan benefits until superseded or amended by the Participant in accordance with the provisions of this Section, except that death benefits under Section 5.4 will be paid in a lump sum unless an affirmative election to the contrary is filed by the Participant. If the Participant has not been a Participant in the Plan for at least six (6) months prior to the Participant153s Retirement, Early Retirement Disability, or

- 17 -


Termination of Employment after age fifty (50), the Participant153s initial distribution election filed with Wal-Mart will be given effect. For purposes of this Section 5.6, it is expressly provided that any installment election which would be given effect hereunder for benefits payable under Section 5.3 shall automatically be given effect for Participants who incur a Termination of Employment on or after June 1, 1999 and after attaining age fifty (50), without the consent or ratification of any such Participant.

5.7 Reductions Arising from a Participant153s Gross Misconduct.

A Participant153s Plan benefits are contingent upon the Participant not engaging in Gross Misconduct while employed with Wal-Mart or any Related Affiliate, or during such additional period as provided in Wal-Mart153s Statement of Ethics. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, in the event the Committee determines that the Participant has engaged in Gross Misconduct during the prescribed period: (a) the Participant shall forfeit all Incentive Payments, and credited Plan earnings thereon; and (b) earnings credited to the Participant153s Grandfathered Account derived from Deferred Compensation and Deferred Bonuses shall be recalculated for each Plan Year to reflect the amount which would otherwise have been credited if the applicable per annum rate were fifty percent (50%) of the per annum153 rate in effect for such Plan Year. Under no circumstances will a Participant forfeit any portion of the Participant153s Deferred Compensation or Deferred Bonuses. Any payments received hereunder by a Participant (or the Participant153s beneficiary) are contingent upon the Participant not engaging (or not having engaged) in Gross Misconduct while employed with Wal-Mart or any Related Affiliate, or during such additional period as provided in Wal-Mart153s Statement of Business Ethics. If the Committee determines, after payment of amounts hereunder, that the Participant has engaged in Gross Misconduct during the prescribed period, the Participant (or the Participant153s beneficiary) shall repay to Wal-Mart, or the applicable Related Affiliate, any amount in excess of that to which the Participant is entitled under this Section 5.7.

5.8 Distributions for Unforeseeable Emergencies.

In the event of an Unforeseeable Emergency, the Committee, in its sole and absolute discretion and upon written application of such Participant, may direct immediate distribution of all or a portion of the Participant153s Plan benefits. The Committee will permit distribution because of an Unforeseeable Emergency only to the extent reasonably needed to satisfy the emergency need.

Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the provisions of this paragraph apply in the event a Participant receives a distribution under this Section 5.8, the Participant153s Termination of Employment for any reason occurs on a date other than the last business day of a Fiscal Year (excluding for this purpose Saturday or Sunday), and the Participant153s benefits hereunder for any reason are paid in the same Fiscal Year in which the Participant received a distribution for Unforeseeable Emergencies under this Section 5.8. In that event, the Participant153s lump sum amount calculated under Sections 5.2, 5.3, or 5.4 will be reduced by the amount distributed under this Section 5.8 and the applicable interest equivalent will be calculated in a manner consistent with Section 4.1.
