Went to a Walmart that BS stock that showed two of the headphones in stock . Didn’t see them in the normal headphone locked case or clearance . Had a worker look up the UPC and a manager said they are in a holding bin in the back . Worker went in the back and came out with both so I snagged them ! Thank you guys !

When your stores list the item has 'Limited Stock', has anyone had success recently asking employees to check the back room?

 

There's been a number of these clearance items that show limited, and when I ask for assistance, employees tell me the items would either be on the shelf or moved to the clearance tables, so just wondering if it's worth the time to ask about checking in the back. Some of these items continue to show limited on brickseek for weeks afterward

Don't waste your time with "Limited Stock" items. It's either the display model or stolen / lost / misplaced somewhere in the store.

Walmart app is a piece of shit. Won't scan half the items and when it does it doesn't show you the price, it shows you the item on walmart.com and listing from third parties. It doesn't scan what the in store price is.

Is your location on? Are you clicking the tab for your store? I've been using the app for years and that doesn't happen. If it doesn't show an item after scanning, that just means there is no listing for it in their store's inventory anymore.

Funny enough those Splatoon controllers were listed as limited stock at my walmart and I managed to actually find one. Was just chilling in one of the Nintendo cases. Not that I disagree with your point though, this is the first limited stock item I've actually been able to find in my store. 

 

I love how the walmart employees can't believe these prices though. I asked the guy back in electronics to check the price of the controller for me and he thought something was wrong in the data because it said $6. Happened with that hori mini-ps4 controller as well at a different walmart lol.

I've gone to 1 store that shows the $13 Element 1080p monitor as 'limited stock', and I've asked multiple employees about it, but the only model I have seen is the display on the shelf. Their answer is usually it must've been sold.

 

I guess my question is do they sell display models if you ask?

Display laptops and computers, no. Monitors? Not sure.

I bought a display model of one of these.  I do not have a power cable that actually works for it, so I'm debating returning it.  I'd hate to buy a cable and the monitor turn out to be defective.

Ah that was the problem. You need to select which store you're at on the app for instore price checks.

 

Anyone got a brickseek link for that computer mouse that was on sale. I'm getting back into retro PC games that require low system requirements. Recently found a like new never used Diablo 2 battlechest and started playing. I got one of the Razer black widow keyboards, just need to upgrade my mouse now.

I went to Walmart a couple of days ago trying to buy those white chocolate M&M's for $0.10. BS showed 24 in stock but 3 employees couldn't find them. The manager was at lunch and the last worker said the the app doesn't tell her where they are but it does list 24 in stock so that means they got shipped out or sold and they never bothered to update. I did find some of the $0.25 M&M's share sizes so just bought some of those instead even though they weren't as good of a deal because I wasn't about to wait around for the manager to get back from lunch for some candy lol.

I am late on this but if something says limited stock on brick seek check Walmart.com and see if any of the Walmarts in particular have it for pick up on that day if it’s available the same day then more than likely it’s in stock.

Thanks to everyone who posted links.

To throw my two cents in about the Brickseek accuracy, Walmart must have the worst inventory system.

I've been doing clearance shopping at Walmart and Target for many years. My sister even works at a target near me. I'd say the accuracy of in stock items from Target via Brickseek had been a solid 85-90% for me.
Walmart is easily somewhere around 20%. If i see an item Limited Stock, it's SO hit or miss. It's been more accurate for me than "in stock" items. I never go to a store looking for limited stock items, yet those are the ones I find, and the "in stock" items are nowhere to be found. And this is using multiple targets and Walmarts. Same accuracy across the board for me.

FYI same day pick up in store will only work if they have more than 1 in-store (or their inventory count shows 2+, even if it is wrong).

Otherwise you will not get that delivery option.

I found this one in the glass case. I never thought to look there either but I saw the $1.00 price point so now i will always look.

I often check games in the case. That's where I found Wolfenstein The New Order for XB1 for $1. They had a ton of copies put in the place where Wolfenstein 2 should be for $40.

My nearest Walmart shows tons of inventory on Brickseek for quite a bit of the good stuff posted here, but their actual clearance section is a tiny corner of the electronics department and nothing of note is ever there, or anywhere else in the store for that matter.

I went to get those corsair SABRE mouse, I couldn't find them despite it still showing two in stock.

 

However I did manage to get another Razer Blackwidow ultimate for $11 and I had already cleared that walmart of those and a few others and know for a fact on brickseek they went from showing in stock to right after I purchased them to limited stock.  So this one got pulled from somesones ass. And shows brickseek is good reference but not high accuracy. These items can be stolen or somewhere in the store even though they said they are clearance items they wouldn't be in the back room. The system may not have updated correctly. Many factors to consider. It wouldn't surprise me to go there one day and find one or not. Or to find one at a store that is showing no stock..

Yeah I really envy some of the Walmarts near you guys. My Walmart has literally a single end cap for clearance. There’s first generation iPad covers and micro USB adapters and that’s pretty much it.

Blarf, I keep falling for SD...and it keeps burning me.  I cannot tell you the last time it was accurate (yes I'm aware it's usually the store's fault).  I mean I get it when it says there's one or two left, but SEVEN?!?!  Oh well, I guess I already have a cheap decent bluetooth speaker...no biggie.

Man. These people are lazy. So brickseek has 7 in stock. When u ask, they say its on the sales floor. I kept pushing to check the back and they wont go check claiming everything is on the floor.

Yea, who knows with this crap. I saw last night that the Walmart by me had Rampage for $150 (first store to discount it) and I checked again at work. So I figured I'd run there on my way home and about half way there I checked again and it still said 2. The i looked in store and all they had was 3 street fighters and 2 Pacman.
So I checked again online and it said limited stock, how is it possible that it changed that fast, unless someone literally was maybe a few mins before me? Or someone checked stock or how does that work?

Also does anyone know how it works if I do it online for pickup in store? It shows $300 so how would that work? I was going to try but wasn't sure what would happen.
