Walmart is notorious for online errors. You can take screen shot and show it to them. My experience is they have very dumb fat staff that will tell you to F off.

I'm thinking it's an offer to purchase at given price, available only in stores.

But pick up at store means it's available IF their inventory is correct, which it isn't always.  Did you explain to the staff that product's price is only good for purchasing in stores?

a friend bought a samsung notebook computer b/c it was 1/2 price of ipad at the time. That was a few years ago, Ipad prices are very competative now.

after a couple years the thing broke. Not worth it to repair. Now she owns an ipad, cost about the same because it was two years later. Now it's 4 years old and still going fine.

Same people working in many government agencies.  And always give us Vietnamese an attitude.  The only government agency I like is actually the post office as they hire many Asians.  I feel welcomed there picking up my larger signed packages.

I rarely feel the need to shop at Walmart as they have the same stuff as Costco but Costco feels middle class while Walmart is just outright ghetto.  They have bicycle accessories locked up in a case.  I mean if you were a rational thief, you would be out on the streets stealing electric bicycles instead of $10 bicycle locks inside a locked case inside Walmart with cameras pointing everywhere.  Also, what is it with Indians and Walmart?  They make a good income but why so few of them hit the Costco while they are out with their entire family at Walmart.  Indians are probably the cheapest people on planet earth.  No wonder you never see them even at fast food restaurants.

The stores are different. Costco has limited products but many (not all bc I’ve gotten bad products at Costco too) have been sourced and vetted so likely you get a quality product and reasonable price. Once in a while they have an branded item at a large discount to bring you in. Surely a great deal. Walmart is a free market, you can get lots super cheap non brand stuff, many time well known brands for a little less. So if you just want something quick and guaranteed lower price than most places the walmart is the way to go but don’t expect great service.

I’m a fan of Walmart bc for certain daily stuff, ie food, hygiene items, you can find common well known brands cheaper than grocery stores. You can buy food, picture hanger, shelves, pressure cooker, in one stop and don’t need membership or stand behind truckloads in line.

Their online listing however is crazy. I wish I had a screen shot but one time they listed a slow cooker for $1,000. Clearly a mistake but good luck getting any help. If you’re at the store, likely get some fat Mexican girl who tells you I’m sorry but that’s it, they don’t care enough nor smart enough to help.

people who shop at Walmart are called Walmartians.  Seriously, do you really want me to call you a Walmartian???

Well..I didn't have my phone that day to show to the attendant.  So, today I brought my phone to show one of the Walmart close by but they said they are out of stock.  But the ad shows that it was in stock.  Then I asked them to check for another Walmart to see if they have it.  They then told me to go to another Walmart.  I went there and they said they don't have it.  OK, so I thought maybe I should check at another Walmart and see, and low and behold they don't have it.

Walmart is employing that Black Friday scam where they have one item for 1 million people, then say it's out of stock.
