I've also been denied the few times I've tried as well

Really?

What I don't understand is how they can not only deny their own company's online price but you can have the product shipped directly to the very same store at no charge.

Either way, you buy the item at that price and get it from the store. If anything, the shipping is a cost they swallow.

Like I said, I've never been denied. A few weeks ago, when Captain America: Super Soldier was still selling for 49.99 in store, they price matched the Walmart.com price of 19.99 no hassle.

Have you tried a different store? Or talked to the manager? I 've experienced employees claiming they didn't think they price matched but every time I had them check with a supervisor, it was approved.

Sorry to hear that regardless.

Yeah I've tried different walmarts and tried talking to managers. I always get the same cookie cutter BS response, that .com is a different business blah, blah, blah.

Stopped by 2 of my local Walmarts today and saw both stores had LA Noire: The Completed Edition stocked on the shelves for 20 dollars, for both PS3 and 360. When rung up at the register, it came out to 30 dollars, but I mentioned the price tag and was able to get it for 20 dollars. It seems they just took all the versions of LA Noire and just stocked them together under the 20 dollar price tag. YMMV I guess.

It would be a great day for CAGs everywhere if Walmart ever really got in the gaming biz besides just Black Friday.

According to who? They tried the trade-in thing(employing kiosks instead of real people) and got flooded with crap games like AC/DC Rock Band Track pack that they turned around to try to sell for $9+, which is over the $5 I've seen it for at most places already.

Not only that, but WalMart is the home of the $.03 'sale'/clearance price. They reduce a game by a couple cents to a buck and call it a sale or clearance. I understand a company doesn't want to have to drop old stock to $5-10 to clear it out, but when you've got N64 and PS1 titles still hanging around one of your older stores at the beginning of the PS3/360 gaming generation and they're priced $29.96 or HIGHER.....yeah...there's a problem there.

So I could only imagine if they got into the gaming biz. They would probably make Gamestop look generous by comparison.:roll:

Wal-Mart won't price match their website or another Wal-Mart. They do take returns in-store from their website, albeit reluctantly. They don't like doing it because no one understands how the process works between online and in-store. There's a huge disconnect there in nearly every retail store besides an Apple store, and I really can't understand why their respective corporate offices can't address that.

I can confirm LoS is $15. I picked it up a few days ago. It was still tagged $30 but rang up $15.

That's what they say... But when you can go around and order some items ONLINE and literally pick them up in the store a few minutes later that kind of negates what they're trying to say. Even to a lesser degree is the fact that just about any item can be bought online and shipped to the store in a few days for free.

Sigh...my local walmart that's only 0.81 miles away says it can ship to store within 5-10 days, but that's at the $19.98 price. I'm not entirely sold they don't have it OOS, but I'm too lazy to make the drive to see given the site details..Hate to waste a trip

I can't seem to find the other thread, but at my local Walmart yesterday, they had a few of the $5 PS3 games show up on an endcap. I ended up with God of War 3, Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2011, Nascar 2011, and FIFA 11 for $5/each. I got the last copies of each, except for Cabela's.

Looks like a few were Black Friday remnants, as most had the color dot stickers on them.

Walmart actually changed its policy for last holiday season in that they would pm walmart.com during the holiday timeframe. Not sure if it will hold true again this year though. I believe it was black friday thru jan 1 they ran it.
