Walmart Refuses to match their online prices
On December 16th, 2011 I looked online for a Christmas gift and found that walmart.com had a 50.00 rollback on a dell computer. When I looked at the delivery to the store, it was for 12/23 and I wouldn't be in the area to pick it up. So I went to the Walmart to buy the computer (they had at least three in the locked cabinet). When I asked whether Walmart would match their online price, the sales person said no. I asked for a manager and she also said no. Finally, the assistant manager for the store, came out and again confirmed that the Walmart store would not match walmart.com's price.
If you are thinking the products might be different, you would be incorrect. I had a printout of the product in my pocket and matched the number to the exact same number in the store. Walmart claims to have a price match but refused meet the policy online purchases at walmart.com (in fact as I was sitting typing this note, the price match commercial came up on the television!).
It seems quite *** for Walmart not to honor their online price in the store if the product is in the store. Why would I have to go home, order the same product online and then return to the store to pick it up? It just doesn't make sense.
Needless to say I did not buy the product at Walmart.
