If the label is for the correct product and the incorrect price I always honor it. If its a different item sitting there I do not. Anyone could place an item in the wrong spot, and demand a price change. I kindly read them the label.
Some folks are just low-class to take advantage in such a fashion. They certainly aren't heroic to put one over on Wally World no matter what opinion might be held of the gargantuan retailer. The only thing worse is to brag about such exploits on a forum.

I dont see anything dishonest here. The OP seen a bargain, he knew it was a bargain and he took advantage of it. It's not like he moved price tags around, he just bought a product at the posted price.
Well, when you have prior knowledge of something then that changes things a bit with regard to honesty & ethical & moral responsibility.
Now if you noticed that the 100 count boxes were priced at the 50 count price and you asked to speak to the store manager and made him aware of that fact by saying...
"Somebody working in your store made a big boo-boo pricing these 100 count boxes...why don't you show your appreciation by selling me 3 boxes at the lower price since I did you a huge favor by catching the error and telling you about it."
That would have been a better way to handle it.

When I was a boy my grandparents lived in a town 18 miles away. Once after visiting them we stopped at a grocery store on the way home. After we got home my mother noticed the clerk had given her an extra quarter back in change. My mom said it would have to come out of the employees pocket when they totaled the register for the night, so it was 18 miles there to return the quarter and 18 miles back. This was around 1964, when I was nine years old. She could have kept the quarter, not much even back then, but I've always remembered this incident and I thank God for my Christian parents. I'm sure Wal-Mart won't have to close down but I couldn't have done this, either.

Ethics, you either have them, or you don't.
Be reasonable. See things my way.
It looks like Walmart had to match the price of a advertised item...
MATCH IT!.......... Okay, I'll match that price right here.
Truthfully speaking though. It was probably some under paid youngster, or same, elderly lady or gentlemen that made the error. Let's just hope they didn't suffer any repercussions for their mistake via management.
Did Walmart suffer at all from the mistake... That'd be a HUGE, No, water off a ducks back.

Retailers can offset losses by just passing them on to their customers in the form of price increases, so those who are able to rip them off may be, in essence, ripping us all off. The fact is this thing isn't even about Walmart. It's about what a man should be seeing when he looks in the mirror.Did Walmart suffer at all from the mistake...
