Walmart has a new policy, if you over pay, if they try to charge more than the listed price, or if there is almost any pricing discrepancy, they will give you the low price and then lower it by $3. If the item is under $3, then you get it for free.
It's 'hyro-jucks'

I may be mistaken, but I believe that policy has been there for some time. Years ago when they had the G1 Heroes of Cybertron keychains, I picked up 2 sets because they were priced at $0.84 each, but then rang up as $2.99. I had to take it to the Returns desk but I ended up getting all of them for free! That was a good day .

Ah ok. It was in the news recently because the state did an audit on walmart and found that some stores where routinely over charging customers. They where fined something like $1,000,000 and Walmart, I guess, reiterated that policy. I usually don't scrutinize the price, but it'll pay to do so at walmart.

Interesting article. Looks like that program that you mentioned was set to expire this November, but has been extended to Nov 2013... Interesting because they are choosing to end it just before the holidays. I better be extra vigilant about any holiday shopping that I do there!

Some Walmart managers don't want to teach their employees this rule and just asked them to play dumb.

Usually most customers don't want to argue on the price if it looked to be a long waiting.. while there are tons of customers in the line behind... I particularly hate to be the person slowing down the checkout..

Over the weekend I picked up some CV commanders. Starscream, Megatron, and Bulkhead. The Bulkhead I got didn't come with a DVD but was the same price as the others. He didn't even have the "mini DVD included" tag. I figured this was a short lived promotion but has anyone else seen them showing up without the DVD?

nope not yet. I thought it costs more with the dvd, but I could be wrong.

I picked up the CV Bulkhead on sale today. Fun lil Big Guy. I will definitely get Ironhide in the future, maybe Dreadwing, but I bet he'll get a voyager eventually.

Cupertino, Sunnyvale and Mountain View Targets all have the same crap. A few cliffhumpers, maybe a wheeljack and he who shall not be named. Sunnyvale ToysRus had an Arcee and a few soundwaves, but they were priced at 14.99, so I left them there.

Mountain View Walmart just had cliffhumpers.
