Walmarts do not Price Match anyone.   You obviously shop at a store that doesn't follow the example.  That's YMMV.  Take that as a boon and stop spreading misinformation.

They should follow their own individual policy which is exactly what they do. You aren't entitled to a price match to Walmart.com or Jet.com unless your store chooses to follow the price match rule. All these stores aren't just not allowing price matching because they are confused about Walmarts policy, they are doing exactly what they are allowed to do or not do.

Unless you have proof, such as a picture or link, confirming that all stores have to follow the price match rule to Walmart.com.

 

It states right on that link you gave to Walmart's Corporate Policies that "We will match Walmart.com and Jet.com base price, for identical items purchased in a Walmart store."  It's not ambiguous at all. It's clear that Walmart's policy is that stores will price match to their website.

 

Sure, there is a disclaimer that the manager has final say on any price match decision but a manager that flat out refused to ever honor their corporate policy on this topic sure seems to me like some rogue store (unless it's in Alaska, Hawaii, or Puerto Rico which are exempted from this policy). 

 

My personal experience is that I have been able to go to a Walmart store and price match to Walmart.com.

 

So to sum up:

  • Walmart.com will price match these select retailers
  • Walmart stores will price match items on Walmart.com and Jet.com (excluding third-party sellers)
  • Walmart stores will not price match other retailers

 

Anything else would seem to be individual stores or districts just going YOLO and making up their own rules.

this is all great, what does it have to do with walmart clearance? start a new thread, "pointless arguing about something that doesnt matter because undertrained employees are going to do whatever they want" and post in there.

Quote the whole statement.

Right below that states "The manager on duty as the final decision on any Price match. Walmart reserves the right to modify the terms of this policy at any time."

If you read the documentation Walmart gave news outlets and press releases they released, they state that stores have final say on whether or not they want to price match. Most stores don't.

Either way, it doesn't matter. I just hate seeing people complain about Walmart specifically not price matching and thinking they've been wronged or employees don't know the policy. They do, you weren't wronged, they are following their store policy which varies from store to store. It isn't Target where all stores must price match from the approved list of stores.

If your store allows you to PM, great, if not, PM elsewhere, they don't have to do it for you.

If it's up to each store to decide then it's not policy. It's a useless suggestion.

Didn't notice it when I first looked at this thread but that HP is the exact desktop I use right now, minus the hard drive. I have been very happy with it. That said though I don't play many AAA games on PC so I can't really give impressions about that. I mostly use mine for indie games that take forever to come to console or MMO type games that are generally just more comfortable to play on PC.

 

My most played games on here are probably WoW and Destiny 2 and both run absolutely great with pretty much everything maxed out.

If you can find it, The HP.

 

I'd say:

1. Add at least another 8GB of RAM...just to make it at least 16GB RAM in total.

2. And add more SSD/HDD space. 256GB is small, especially w/ some games eating up around 92GB (AC: Odyssey Gold) to 130GB+ a piece (Gears 4) - and heck, Windows 10 itself is going to eat up around 21GB itself.

 

Yeah, then you're going to be golden.

 

1080p60fps+ gaming is going to be a breeze w/ those specs.

 

EDIT:

I would be curious how something more challenging & demanding like GR: Breakpoint and Red Dead Redemption 2 would run on that HP.

How often do they lower the price? I found a store with some in stock but at $579 but the price is grayed out

Yeah, always move up to 16gb, especially since some games, with background can use up to 8gb now a days, (matched ram) and I'd say toss in a firecuda as a games drive.

 

Breakpoint, what it looks like, on Ultra runs around 42-58fps @ 1080p and Red Dead 2 on High/Mixed for VRAM runs 58-72fps @ 1080p.

So I consider it a solid machine, especially for $500 with upgrades.

 

I'm pretty sure that beats the used market even right now. Finding a nice Gen 6+ i5/i7 or Ryzen 2+ System with a 1070 would be comparable, but rare to find at a $500 price point.

Same near me too...there’s a YouTube video about a day old reviewing the laptop and it’s actually pretty good plays games well he tested a few out but he did upgrade the ram...everything about the laptop seems solid except for the 768p screen

Looks like filthy has you covered thankfully, honestly a lot of the most demanding games are ones I actually don't have much interest in playing in general so it's something I've never really been able to see first hand. 

 

And yeah if anyone buys this thing upgrade the RAM first thing. Can get really annoying trying to run even something like WoW if you have a bunch of browser tabs open or something like that.

Saw PS VR Mega Pack with 5 game bundle for $100.  Went back to the store to pick it up for a friend.  Rang up $100.00.  Also shows up $100 in the store on brickseek.  $199 at other stores, but out of stock.  Pics attached to verify.

Not available where I live, but if anyone searches in Miami Fl, there's 1 walmart that seems to have 6 at that price.... sometimes I wonder why I ever left there....

True, to an extent.

 

HP is not one of the best brands - so I am thinking the Case, Mobo, PSU, and RAM count is probably not-so-hot.

 

But for the $400 it been showing up as (instead of the $700-900 it probably would normally go for), that's a good deal. You're talking basically half price here.

 

Also, for $400, that's a steal for both a 1660 Ti and the CPU altogether. Those two parts are worth the $400 or so total, nevermind the entire PC! This could be good for upgraders and/or builders, for those pieces alone.

 

If you know what you're doing, you could upgrade a current desktop PC that needs a better GPU and/or CPU...and go  from there.

 

Or heck, since you'll still be ahead here if you wanted to build a custom rig around the 1660 Ti, CPU, and the 8GB of RAM - you can always buy a new mobo, case, PSU, more RAM (I would recommend buying another 8GB of RAM at least, so you have at least 16GB of RAM total here), etc etc.

Picked upPuzzle & Dragons Z / P&DZ Super Mario Bros Edition (3DS)  for $9 at the local walmart.  It was on the game clearance shelf with other games but not priced so I had to use my walmart app.   Not bad at all.  It isn't much more to get a copy on ebay, but for a random purchase that I could see the condition it was worth it.  They had some $23 Pokemon Sun as well.  Of course YMMV.

Just a PSA to be on the lookout for clearance toys this month. Walmarts always clear out a lot of stuff in January to get rid of leftover Christmas stock.

Found this a few days ago at a Walmart for $137. I know it isn’t the best spec’d gaming PC but for that price I consider it a steal.
