New Savings Experiences in Stores and Online:
Walmart has amplified its focus on Rollbacks this spring, lowering prices of favorite products and helping customers live better in this "new normal" with more places to learn about savings and electronics choices. These examples include:
It's hard to dislike the prices at Wal*Mart.
However, I think that in the interest of complete lucidity they should replace their greeters with Chinese immigrants which are paid 35cents/hr.
Oh my god, I'm seeing the future again.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
I hate the electronic department at Walmart because it's just awful. There isn't any variety there for me. I hope this overhaul fixes those issues.
The best prices as well as selection for electronics of any devices except those which are from set providers such as cellular will be online almost always without fail. There is also a much larger selection as well as exact model availability as well. The kicker is support is on you pretty much or who you choose to buy from or through. The kicker here on electronics is moat who know more than general knowledge on them buy in this way. The general consumer or 70% of the market probably and more most likely than that falls in the unknowledgable region in general.

^LOL^ - The term WALMART ELECTRONICS is an oxymoron! If you are seriously considering WalMart, go instead to Costco where they will extend the manufacturer's warranty to 2 years when you purchase a new TV, projector, or computer.

Wally-World has good prices for sure, but a lot of the stuff they carry can be found for less online. They have a decent return policy minus all of the hassle and mind games, and that's a plus.
I have several friends that work there and they have a huge level of BS to endure from their management. (this is a big change, mostly since Sam died)
They have tremendous buying power that allows them to sell for less, and they use this to thrash any existing small retail companies in the neighborhood until they go under.
They use the same buying power to all but eliminate the profits small, and large manufacturers enjoy by negotiating huge buys of product from them for peanuts on the dollar. They buy product in huge lots, for lots less, and they sell the same product for just a little less than their competition, and THEY make the profits. This reduced revenue removes the small guy's ability to react to market fluctuations and drives some of them under.
In these days of uncertain economy and financial stress, buyers are forced to put their principles aside and shop where they can get the best prices. Most never take the time to find the cheaper deals that are there online, if you look for them.
WalMart is the BORG and they will assimilate you,……..
Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
