Walmart - Review about Ring in Lake Hamilton, Arkansas

Today I purchased a ring at the Walmart in Arkadelphia, Arkansas.It had a sale sticker on it for $98.

After taking the tag off at home, I lifted the sale sticker, curious of what the regular price was. The original tag says $88. I can't explain how disgusted I was with walmart. It's bad enough you have raped Americans of jobs by purchasing all the goods you sell from overseas, but now you are going to start raping the customers who keep you in business?

I don't have an issue with the price, money is not the issue. But for a company that was founded by such a patriotic man to have sunk into such a slum hole that you mark UP sale items to deceive customers into thinking they are saving a dollar is beyond pathetic.

I don't care about your prices or one stop convenience, if something is not done to satisfy the morbid disgust I have for your corporation at this time, I will make it my personal mission to broadcast your disgusting little schemes.You and everyone affiliated with you should be ashamed of yourselves.

The ring may have originally been $88, but in the time it has sat in the store the price could have fluctuated up and down several times. For example: the ring came in at $88 in January. In February there was a price change taking it down to $80. It didn't sell and in March it went back up to $88. Then in April there was a price change up to $98. It then went up to $100, then it came back down to $98. So the clearance price then would have been on $100, not $88.

Why would anyone buy a cheap ring for $88 when you can get the same/better ring for $98?

This is bait and switch. You cannot advertise something on sale that is higher than the regular price. There is a class action lawsuit right now with Justice children's clothing store for this exact thing.

But they not saying the ring was on sale, both you and the OP need to learn about inflation. This goes for the anonymous poster that posted as well. Ask your parents about inflation.

prices do go up and down in retail numbnuts it happens all the time. this is just an example of a lazy a$$ at the store not taking the old sticker off before putting a new one on. i know how this process works because i work retail and our system allows us to take ANY item that's sold in store and look up a history of retail pricing on it. it allows us this so that if/when someone returns a product without a receipt that we will allow to be taken back they not only lose the sales tax they get the lowest selling price because without the receipt they have no way to prove when they purchased the item in question.

You bought a 88 dollar ring that may have been sitting there for while or it was a return. Gold does have inflation!!!

No. This is not inflation. This is class bait and switch tactic. Everyone know that the red sticker at Walmart is a clearance sticker.

Not always, like another poster said ask your parents about inflation.

But clearance does not mean that the price has went down. It does not mean that it was a discount. There's mark ups and mark downs which is normal. Some items just no longer have a home on the modular that was originally set.
