Walmart ad one thing, in store item something else

Did anyone else notice that Walmart advertised a 5 serving George Forman griddle, but the one they sold was a 3 serving? Isn't that false advertising???

If I am not mistaken, my Walmart had a sign on the door about this, stating it was a misprint in the ad.

I saw a lady at customer service today with what appeared to be a manager with one if those in her hand. I wonder if that's what happened here too. The manager said something about not getting what you were expecting.

Sign on door at our walmart and the little lady handing out maps was telling people to look at the sign about the misprint.

No one at Walmart seems to know what the other is doing. My dad and I went for the $98 TV. The ad showed a Funai TV. The map they hand you at the door said Emerson TV. The balloons marking where you stand in line for an item said Element TV. We got vouchers for the TVs and ordering them online it said Funai was the brand. In the end, that's what was in the ad, but apparently no one in Walmart can communicate correctly.

JCP's 15% coupons are a weekly thing. Prices go up if you think they do. Sale items are also a part of their weekly ad.
