The LG UP870 4K bluray player is starting to show up for $25. I'm tempted to test out the in store pick up option to see if I can get that price.


I can’t get any in store pickups to work for that player.

I can’t believe too it has no apps

Best Buy has their version of the TCL 55S405 on sale for $369.99.  I know, it's more than the clearance price at Wallyworld, but figured I'd share in case someone would rather use/earn Best Buy rewards, etc.

That's the only mini restaurant in my small town Walmart.  I wonder if what's in the store is based on what is already available nearby since my town already has a Subway and McDonalds.  It wouldn't make sense to also have them in the local Walmart too.

When Walmart was built in the town I grew up in they put in a McDonald's even though there is a McDonald's directly across the street.  It is the south though...

 

Most WMs in the south have a McDs in them if anything although I've seen a few Subways.  Most Targets have a Starbucks or Pizza Hut or both.  Never seen a Kmart with a restaurant in it. 

 

Best restaurant in a store I saw was at a Home Depot in midtown Atlanta near where I worked.  It had a Fuddruckers in it.

Kmart had their own cafes for awhile years back, but Little Ceasars pizza was the main food partner in recent years.

That's been happening more and more lately... even with some Nintendo releases.

Sadly the game clearances have come to a halt in my area but my WMs have been killing it with the electronics/toys.  Picked up a Hover-1 Hoverboard for $30, Sphero Spiderman for $35 and a Vizio 5.1 soundbar for $35. 

 

A little side rant, i'm really getting annoyed with LP at my store.  They "lost" 5 hoverboards (not binned in the back, employee handhelds show on floor) 8 copies of Star Ocean PS4, and continue to put full srp games in an unlocked "clearance" case without any security cases on games. Meanwhile the guy at the door has to stop me to check my receipt for my $4 thing of water and their in-store pickup people say its a security issue if you use a shortened name on an online order vs. what your id says (ie Mike vs. Michael)

Yeah mine supposedly couldn’t find a few items too but according to brickseek they went from 5 to 0 within an hour or two.

I got that Vizio speaker set too, stoked to try it

That's a valid reason to not give you the order. Why wouldn't it match? It should match and seems like a good reason for someone to hack your account with that same name and try to get free items (I know this from personal experience and having to deal with it).

It's like being mad that you use your nickname (Prison Mike for example) and your I.D. shows Michael. It doesn't add up and they should deny you to pick it up.

Doesn’t exist within 100 miles of me. Stores that do further away are selling at MSRP. Must be your one store having it on clearance.

Hopefully this is sarcasm, because it reads borderline believable but doesn't make sense.

 

There's one Walmart over an hour away from me that has 3 Razer bundles and LG players, and 2 speaker sets. The potential profit is just high enough for me to consider it. Anyone have luck reselling those online?

That razer bundle is *just* large enough to make shipping an issue for trying to resell. The box is too thin and flashy to ship it bare in the mfr box too.

I wouldn't try it personally, but looking at recently completed sales on eBay there is a little profit to be made after fees.

Not particularly game related, but I happened upon a Razor Hovertrax 1.5 hoverboard last night for $75. They were $249.

Had that happen to me today also. Price was $49 yesterday at a local store and dropped to $25 today. BS said there was 4 in stock, which I can some what confirm as I saw 5 of them a couple of weeks ago when they were first posted on SD as being $49. I left home, made a couple of more important stops along the way and arrived at that store about an hour later and BS still showed 2 in stock. They were nowhere to be found in electronics, unlike a couple of weeks ago. I asked a cashier if they had any and she replied "those went on sale this morning and we're sold out". Just checked BS again a couple of hours ago and now it shows 0.

Don't know if anyone is in the market for one of these, but they have the Spring Arm tv mount 23"-60" marked down to $15 at some stores. Was looking for these the other day at another store when they were $30. Found 2 today for $15.

The name on my walmart.com account is my nickname and doesn't match the name on my form of payment or on my driver's license, and I've never had issues with picking up my order.

I wasn't in the market for them, but at $15 it's kinda hard to not get one or two in case the need arises.

No video games at my local Walmart but there were a lot of Lego and Power Rangers toys on a clearance shelf if other people are into that.

40" Samsung came in on site to store, easily did a return/rebuy for $169.

 

Will have to look for FFXV deluxe. I'd jump on that for $30.

Do you buy the tv using site to store, pick up the tv, then return it and rebuy the one they now have in stock for $169.00?

 

Did the employee go along with it? Or did you return the tv under the pretense that you just didn't like it, then instead of RMAing it, they put in back on the floor? How would it go back in stock if the unit would then have to be sold as open box or something and thus not be qualified for the $169 new item price?

Can you elaborate? Did the price if you pick up in store go down to $169? 

 

Does it have to be instock at store you do the return/rebuy at? 

Bought it, returned it at customer service, rebought at the $169 price. It wasn't instock at said store before I ordered it, but the price instore was $169. My site to store order was initially $447.

If this went down like I think it did, you were very fortunate that they let you re-buy it.  If the item isn't available for same-day pickup but instead available for pickup and handful of days later, then that means it has to be shipped from which means that it isn't pulled from the store's inventory but rather the warehouse's inventory (www.walmart.com's inventory).  They typically don't let you return and rebut such things because when the item is returned, it isn't added to the store's inventory but rather is shipped back to the warehouse.

 

This was the case with the Roku 4K that I bought a few months ago.  The local store was out of stock but I could still do site-to-store pickup (not same day) and then hopefully take it to the front for a return/rebuy.  They let me do it, but only as a one-time exception because it isn't in their inventory to sell it.  Sure enough, that store's inventory went from 0 on BS to -1 next time I checked.  I think I got lucky because it wasn't a very high priced item, but I think you got VERY lucky. :)

Got the last LG 4K BR Player for $25. BS showed 2 but I knew they were short one on the floor so decided not to wait until tomorrow.

I’m so confused with the app and how some rare times it changes the price for me to what it says on pickup, but most of the time it doesn’t. When I click the pickup and see other stores it has the item ( for example the blu ray player ) at 25$ but when I click add to cart it goes to 107$, and stays that price after I select pickup
