We really need to get rid of this misinformation.
Stores do not have to price match. They are not ignoring company policy as it's their own policy to make. Each individual store can and does have their own policy for these things. Even on Walmart.com for the PM policy, though outdated, shows that "The manager on duty has the final decision on any Price match. Walmart reserves the right to modify the terms of this policy at any time."
This is different from the previous price match policy Walmart had where they PM'd multiple retailers as apposed to just Walmart.com and Jet.com (assuming that store allows PMs now, they just do those two sites).
So they aren't ignoring policy, they have the right to have their own policy and do. If they deny you, it's because they can and they do not price match at all. Some stores do PM though but not all. It just depends on the store.

Well, as someone with almost 10 years of WM electronics experience, maybe they just don’t have what you’re looking for? There are numerous reasons why that laptop might show an on hand that isn’t really there. Chances are you’re not the first person coming by asking about it, you’re probably the 10th or 20th person, and the employees already know they don’t have it. I know as a customer you don’t feel they’ve done an adequate job in helping you, but try to understand that they have probably searched for other customers already and don’t feel the need to search again.
Does anybody have experience convincing employees to check the back for items and advice as to how I could go about it? There's a laptop at a store nearby that has shown the same stock level for nearly two weeks now and yet when I went in yesterday it wasn't in the cage and the employees were rude and wouldn't go in the back or even unlock the cage so I had a better view of the laptops. I know Brickseek isn't entirely accurate and it could simply be an error, but when I've used it at other stores it updated inventory pretty quickly and yet this computer hasn't budged.
I feel like's a chance it is in the back somewhere, but am not sure how I should approach asking because the laptop isn't being sold on their site anymore (Only by a third party) and it does not show up in the app when I click the store.

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".

Why is there always some Target/Walmart employee that comes into these threads and tells us how corporate works? We get it, you were doing the training on the computer in the breakroom and read an update from corporate one time. Stop acting like you know how it works.

I don't know what JD means, but okay. Hrm.
Is it likely games like Wolfenstein and Shadow of War will sell out quickly [or by end of the sale]? I have no concept of what kind of stock stores generally get for BF.
If I could, I'd drive out there asap during the first day of sale, but it's just not a possibility.

i've seen vendors dictate what to do with game inventory to department managers before while shopping, as far as getting rid of inventory taking up their purchased space in the store.
Afterall, every Walmart is technically a glorified flea market, which is why they usually state why they can't price match with one another.

I distinctly remember some of those $8 games also being $8 in last year's Walmart BF ad!
At my store we still have copies of some of last years BF games, complete with the color coded stickers on them still.
I think I will bite on ReCore for $15, it's a great game imho. Not sure about anything else.

Wow, I wish I knew we had games that weren't in the ad, I'd have checked before I left work tonight. Would have snagged Old Blood on Xbone for $8 in a heartbeat.
Sucks to read about other stores pulling games and other stuff before the sale. I sold games out of the case at BF prices all day with no worries. If I'd asked a manager about it they'd have told me not to, but I figured, these are the prices online on the website anyway, and they're live in the system, so why not. Even sold one of the 70" Vizio TV's at the sale price at like 11:30 in the morning, nice couple and felt bad for them because they said they'd had problems with the website.
Overall I think the move to have everything online made a big difference, that and Walmart BF seems pretty meh this year. We weren't as busy as the last couple years. Then again we have new management and they did an infinitely better job planning it out, everything was spaced out much better. Usually we sell at least 12 items each with their own line right out of electronics, tonight we sold... 1 thing out of electronics, a laptop which we only had 2 of and it was a replacement for a mistake in the ad.
I hope when I go back at 8am tomorrow we have some of these delicious $8 Xbone games left.
