    I think there is a big difference between a sticker for 100 ct 9mm saying $16 vs. a box of 100 9mm being near a sticker for a 50 ct box.

    One is an honest mistake. The other is finding way to save a buck.

    I like deals, but I am siding with QKshooter and others. I see it too much at my job. Store policy or not, I deny it at my job if I smell bs.

    Yeah, I can see your point there, and I wouldn't disagree with it.

    Ah grasshopper...the mystics speak...an A, is not actually an A, but us poor rational devils trapped in our morass of uncouth ethics can't achieve that vaulted plain where the favored few divine light from dark and can "see" that an A is...well...whatever "their" situational irrationality says it is on that particular sunrise...or, maybe there are no mirrors in those hallowed halls that reflect the clean discerning light of day...thus my children ended the lesson. Hope springs eternal and perhaps we shall not soil our novice robes on the morrow...

    Gotta chime in here.

    I found a Leatherman Skeletool on the rack(locked onto the rack) priced at $37.95 at my local wallyworld. I asked the sporting goods associate if that was the correct price. She scanned it and said "No that is a mistake, do you want it at that price?". Was I wrong to take it? No, store policy said I could purchase it at the advertised price.

    There are many things about Walmart's business practice that I disagree with but their customer service policies are not among them.

    Dishonest??? A matter of opinion I guess. I would not have felt good about it.
    Dishonest my butt! How often does Wal-Mart and other stores ring up sale items at non sale prices? A lot! If nobody catches this they win. The price is what it is marked. Its not up to you to police their mistakes.

    There have actually been several national class action law suits about this. I'm not sure if Wal-Mart was every involved but several of the higher end department stores were sued over this practice; Advertise a low sale price but do not update the sku data base. If the customer catches the mis ring then they give the sale price. If not, caveat emptor. This was particular prevalent around Christmas.

    Yeah, I remember some big chain store was doing something to screw customers that involved gift receipts. If they paid $19.99 for an item and it went on sale for $11.99 because it was seasonal or whatever, the person would only get the $11.99 and not the $19.99 that was paid for the item if they decided to return it. The person returning it would usually have no idea how much the person who bought it paid, so it's rarely discovered.

    Goes both ways.

    I probably would have brought someone over and pointed out the price and asked if they were listing it right and then if they didn't change it get some for the great price.

    Calling the OP low-class is not right either though, as far as I'm concerned. He did what he did and it's done. I highly doubt they're going to fire their greeter over that loss since that's what some of you are insinuating.

    Easy partner, in agreement with you 100%! Read all my posts on this. I'm just being a little facetious with some other posters.
    Full onboard with you and the others I quoted in #40.
