WalMart priced matched a misprinted Target ad for me.

Hell of a deal on the Avengers Blu Ray/Music/dvd package!

Wal-Mart's policies are entirely dependent on how much the cashier helping you cares. They have a price matching policy, but most times I have tried to use it they fight you tooth and nail and spend 10 minutes searching the ad you're matching with a fine toothed comb to find a reason to deny you. Other times however, I could just tell the cashier "this item is x price at Target" and they'll just automatically key in the price difference.

Same goes with returns. Wal-Mart's written policy on them is that they will accept up to 3 returns per calender year without a receipt per customer. They track customers doing this by taking their drivers license information. All you can get without a receipt is a gift card or an even exchange. Despite this policy, they will still flat out deny you a return or exchange without a receipt, especially if it's an item with a value more than $25, or a media item like a DVD or Video Game.

The scammers just ruin it for everyone I guess.

Walmarts around here also check all stores to see if the item has been sold recently, because my former friends are thieves  and like to steal stuff and return it.

They'll also search the parking lot for dropped receipts, steal what's on the receipt, and use the receipt to return stuff.

Joe told us he visits the mega-retailer at least twice a day -- once in the morning with his grandmother, and then again in the evening.

Maybe they got tired of seeing him puttering around aimlessly everyday and this was the final straw. Walmart, twice a day, for fun. Dude...seek help.

not just scammers on the returns but employees. One of the main reasons a store ask for your information on a return is to ensure their employees are faking returns and pocketing cash.   i took over a sears auto center and within a month caught an long time (former marine at that) associate creating bogus diehard battery returns, after researching all the past year battery returns and calling customers to inquire if they did indeed return a battery. Well I found out this guy had created bogus returns for over $8,000 in the 12 months before I took over the store. 

being able to call the customers on the return information made his conviction a lot easier. it was fun watching/listening to Sears LP dept stumble over themselves with excuses why they didn't catch him earlier.

The price match people have made me far more tolerant of people who use coupons.

The DVD example was good. If you're at a store to grocery shop or something, but happen to want to match one or two things just because you don't want to make multiple trips, fine.

There was a lady in front of me just before thanksgiving who literally price matched everything in her cart. E-vry-thang.

You could tell the cashier was just trying to get it over with as quickly as she could, but towards the end, she blocked her on one of the items; the match ad was an 8-ounce wedge of cheese for like a buck or something from a store that does not exist within 50 miles of here.

Anyway, Walmart was out of the 8-ounce bricks of cheese, so this lady wants the price match for a pound of cheese. Cashier wouldn't do it, so the lady wanted to talk to the manager. It took all of EIGHT FARKING MINUTES to settle the dispute over the cheese, going on about "bait and switch!", even though it wasn't their ad. To save what, two bucks on a piece of crappy store-brand cheddar?.

From another angle:

Big loudmouth ex-professional wrestler is abusive tword wal-mart employee who calls the cops. Tubby biatch starts crying hoping to avoid arrest. Cops think that the wal-mart employees story has enough merit to cuff and stuff tubby but not a strong enough case to prosecute so they release fat-boy-called-biatch.

You can beat the rap, but you can't beat the ride.

I could be handcuffed, humiliated, gagged, and nude except for a soiled diaper and could still find someone at Walmart that would make me say to myself: "You know what, self? I've got it pretty good."

I know what happened.

Dude came in to price match something that was expired/not the same item/sold out on a limited quantity (pick one), and got declined. Dude then proceeds to bow up and physically threaten people, manager/security gets involved, and he gets told not to come back. He comes back, and does the same thing, and police get called. Now it's the store's fault because of "Christmas" and "disabled" and "crying" and bullshiat like that.

Seriously, fark that guy.

Which is why they are former friends.
They were friends in high school, but after that, as they became bigger and bigger shiatheads, I started caring more and more about the quality of people I hang out with. I don't hang out with thieves any more

Now, it' just hookers, heroin addicts, and politicians.

shows what you know, Subby. I've been kicked out of walmart 4 times. once was for wearing a bathrobe, once was for no shoes, and once was because my coat was too nice to be in a walmart.

/ it was like a $10000+ fur. i might have been wearing lots of crucifi with it and no shirt. oh, the good ol' days...

The grocery store I worked at used to have a policy of giving the customer a dollar if they found an expired item on the shelf, until people started coming in and tearing the shelves apart..

// this customer is always wrong, and probably an asshole....

My dad sold crank when I was in high school. His friends were lowlifes but there are advantages.

For example: My first car cost me $250 because addicts are desperate. My first VCR $25 (which was quite a deal in 1990).

Ergo "you sound fat", just like the rotund guy in the article. Who had a good reason to be upset.

The other night, I tried to tell Huff Po what I really thought about Kristin Wiig - that she was overrated & that I was glad she didn't reproduce with that guy from the Strokes. My comment was taken down in minutes, maybe cuz gawd forbid she'll end up in the ER from hurt feelings such as bioclock rage

NME.com is another one I have a problem with. Some articles will only show the buttkissing comments from readers, even if someone like Simon Le Bon doesn't have any feelings to hurt in the first place.

This is why only the shortest possible visit to Wallmart is advised. And park outside where the Swat team would park to avoid the traffic nightmare.

Remember if an employee is scared enough to call the cops it is a dangerous place to be avoided in the future.

Big, threatening, "ex pro wrestler" when he wants to have his way.

"Disabled, embarrassed, shamed" when there are consequences.

Isn't Walmart the place with the video cameras everywhere.  I seem to recall reading articles here about how the Walmart cameras picked up a license plate number from a car in the lot.

Why can't they just look at the video of this guy supposedely threatening anybody.  It's really easy to accuse, more difficult to prove it if there's video of the guy just standing there being reasonable.
