60" VIZIO smart tv, 120hz - $598! I love walmart!

At the Walmart near me, 2 or 3 times a year. They bring out all the old stock of brand new televisions, all sizes, prices and brands. They line them up on the floor, 60 or so. They take what ever the current low price is, and then they cut that in half. You can buy as many as you want. they have $2000 and over TVs going for 1k. You could sell them easily and make a profit, I have done this a few times. They usually are gone withing hours. I will walk into best buy and other places and see the exact TVs going for full price. I then kick myself for not buying as many as I can. But I don't like the hassle of selling things.

Yes but you can't price match online. I assume you have to pay a shipping fee?



Not if you spend $50, that's the whole point.

Bought a bathroom scale at Walmart today. Got it home and the directions are to remove the included batteries from the plastic package. The batteries were already installed. It was dirty and looked like it had a tire track across the top! And no, it didn't work, even with new batteries.

that kind of stuff happens at all retailers. A person buys a scale, and 2 years later its dirty or doesnt work well..so they buy a new one from a retailer, Take great care to take it out of the box, keep the new one ...put the old one in the box, and return it for refund after carefully glueing the flaps ont the box to look like new.
This way they have unlimited replacement for small appliances for life.

.



And that's why Walmart and most retailers
open the box and inspect the contents of
a return. They don't do it very well sometimes,
though.

Most of their products are complete garbage with the lowest price.


I buy my underwear there! Can buy pack of 7 for $10!

Never had a problem whatsoever shopping at walmart except it tends to be very busy and no customer service as a result.

I figure I save about 35% shopping at WalMart instead of Albertson's, Safeway or Smith's.

I buy groceries, stop at Subway, buy some clothes/shoes, get auto parts, and get a haircut all in one building. What more do you want?
