I think this is a glitch at the Walmart website. When I checked my local ad (Vinita, OK) it shows $210 for the HDTV.. change the home store to Owasso, OK its $148.

Actually when you change it to a Walmart Neighborhood Market it shows the advertised prices on here. Kinda strange!



Is there some sort of law in OK that says they can't do BF deals? This could be a deal breaker for me going to Tulsa to shop.

Then why do the OKC stores have the lower prices that the rest of the country do? Last I checked OKC was in Oklahoma as well. :lol:

I just did a search for Oklahoma City and picked the top store. It's on NW23rd. I see now....that one is a Neighborhood Market. All of those in OK have the lower ad.

Here's a news article that explains the Oklahoma Unfair Sales Act situation:
http://www.tulsaworld.com/news/article. ... TLIN141671

There is an "in good faith to meet the price of a competitor" exemption clause. I don't know how it is applied in real life, but it might explain why some prices in some Oklahoma stores are different than others in the same chain.

I'm excited about the $867 Sig Sauer assault rifle on page 5A of the ad!

I wish walmart offered a gift card with their ipod touch this year, most of the other stores I looked at do.

I contact Wal-Mart about their Itouch 16GB advertised. It describes the 5th generation when you click on it; however, there is no 16 GB 5th generation. They responded and said it was the 4th generation. I responded they needed to fix the link and that the other ads were offering a gift card of $40-$50 with theirs that price. The back page online special I guess would be an 8GB. I was able to snag a 16GB with accessory kid Thursday on their current online specials for $179 (better than their advertised BF ad). It was originally $179 for the 8GB (the 16GB was $195) but then they removed the 8 and the 16 was included for that price. I noticed it didn't last long before the entire option was removed.

Will Walmart price match other advertisers Black Friday prices? I noticed that Target won't so I just want to be prepared.

I noticed that error too and read it in the reviews, guess they aren't paying much attention. Good deal getting the 16gb.

I swear I think walmarts near me clear the shelves with items we could price match on bf. Only once on bf have I ever been able to do that.
