What Flash drive is this referring to? I looked back a few pages and also searched the term "flash drive" and "drive" and saw no mention of these.

The nearest store told me they didn't have it but I went back the next day looking for a couple other things and the same lady who told me they didn't have it found it in the back and asked if I still wanted it. So odds are they have it somewhere in the back and not on the floor since its USB 2.0 not 3.0.

 

They look like this:

Every damn time I asked employees if they have them in the back, they say no. Like, are they allergic to looking in the back? Nobody wants to look for anything it seems. It's like, if it's not there where they can see it, then it doesn't exist.

That’s what happens every time at my local Walmart. I’ll have brickseek up, show them they should have it in the back. Plenty of stock. Twenty minutes later (prob take a break) they come back saying they don’t have any in stock. It’s every single time.

Then I get pissed when people post about walmart employees finding a crap ton of what they are looking for haha.

Walmart  stores, in general, look like a disaster.  Do you guys think the back stock room is any better?

Hate this argument. Most Walmart employees get $10/hour starting which is more than most of the countries wage rate. Target minimum wage is $11 but it just raised to $11 last year for them. It's the mentality of the company, not the pay which is more than generous for Walmart employees.

Seeing as customers who rummage thru items aren't allowed back there, items are usually left on pallets that don't get moved until they reach the sales floor and different staff members who are tasked with keeping it organized and nothing else... I'd say yes, it is better organized in all Walmart backrooms compared to the sales floor.

After calling around I found some of the hp desktops in stock at a store for $499.

When I picked them up the electronics manager rang me out. She tried to get me to buy all 3 instead of just 2. She used the argument that I could just return/rebuy then at a different store for the discounted price.

Not all Walmart are full of unintelligent, unhelpful rude employees. Some of them know what's up and are still helpful to customers.

Thanks! My store had a bunch but they were hung vertically in one of those plastic strips on two different isles, there didn't really seem to be an isle dedicated to computer storage like my other walmart (which didn't have any of these drives). I got 3.

Yeah, no. She was helping herself, not you. She could've sold them to you at the clearance price then and there.

This way, her store is getting the sale for the full amount, and the other store is getting hit with the loss from the price difference. Meanwhile, you have to lug then around.

Says my closest had the headphones for $38 but all gone. I know there's some gamers who work in electronics there now though so I may have a hard time with stuff going forward. One is an ***hat who told me "sorry the inventory said the SNES's were in stock, I know they're not I just bought the last two".


The bar none best solution to this at Walmart is to give corporate a call, tell them an associate at that store held merchandise back for themselves. Management will get an email that day and it will be dealt with. Corporate does not mess around with that, same if an associate is holding merchandise for themselves or even another customer.

Fair point. Still worth it since I needed a PC and don't mind reselling the second to pay for them both.

Today was probably my best haul. I got there as they started marking things down, so I picked out everything I wanted and they knocked it half off. Sooo many good 3DS games for $10 and a lot of 2-4 dollar games that flip for $10+ at GS.

One of the dumbest, elitest things I've ever read here. Any working person shouldn't have to get some sort of public assistance in order to get by. Yet plenty of retail workers do. And before someone jumps in with "well then get a better job lol retail" be prepared to back your claim up with the amount of jobs that pay a livable wage that are hiring. 

No one is working fast food/retail because that's what they want to do with their lives. I've plenty of degree holding friends that can't find work.

I was able to find a slim 1TB PS4 at a Walmart in Thibodaux, LA for $200. It includes a physical copy of Battlefront 2, which is going for around $30-$40 on eBay.

You read what you wanted to read. I never said they should be on assistance, I think most of those employees are paid too much considering they don't do their jobs half the time and can barely use a register despite working there for some time. Anyone who can do their job to the minimal of the job requirements should be paid a living wage based on where they live.

If you change payment methods on a return and rebuy, will the computer auto adjust the price down to what is listed on brickseek?
I’m trying to understand if it’s the computer that makes a return and rebuy a challenge, or if there’s something the employee would need to do to make it show up at the lower clearance price (similar to the way a Target clearance item used to have to be rescanned and tagged before it would come up at the lower clearance price).


Its really just a matter of getting the employee to agree to do the return and rebuy. Sounds like some people have bad luck getting shot down by the employees. Whatever the price is on brickseek is usually accurate with walmarts system which will auto adjust. I just did a return rebuy on the 40in samsung

Almost without fail, the video games/electronics section at WM's I go to has no employees in sight. I have to walk halfway around the store to find someone to ask and they usually say, "just ask someone in electronics" and I have to tell them, there's NO ONE in electronics. They act like I'm asking for their life savings when I ask for assistance finding something.

Was finally able to pick up a 128gb micro sd card for $25

 

It has to be the one in the white packaging. The other are $50.

 

You can scan it with the walmart app to make sure it's $25.

 

Here's the brickseek

Was down to $15 at a store near me, but they're all sold out. Thanks for the heads up though.

 

Also, I vouched for Walmart YMMV deals in another thread at the same time as the Great Yankee Candle Clearance and now it's a running joke that these deals suck. We need more non-soccer mom deals to redeem this thread.

I check brickseek week after week hoping for a PS4 Diablo 3 clearance in my area.  I will have my white whale yet.
