In November they had a sale "Event 2 10 pm Thursday November 22 while supplies last" They had the 16gig SanDisk Flash drive for $6.97 which I needed four of. Well I knew it was a gimmick and there would be only a few of each item at my store for the 250,000 ads mailed out so wisely I didn't bother.
The next afternoon I had to get a few things and I noticed that they still had the drives, a huge bin full of them. So I got them and when I got to the register they were twice the price. I went to customer service and they said the special price was only at 10pm. So I figure they put out a couple of them, sold them, and when the crowds went away raised the price electronically and put the rest of the drives out.
I am suggesting that when you get Walmart ads in your paper or in the mail just recycle them without reading. Chances are its all just a come-on.
