If it's a really good deal on a clearance item I wouldn't call as Walmart employees are likely to snag it and tell it's OOS.
Thank you seafish. Good point regarding deal on clearance items.
Guess we will have to look for the item ourselves then.

Shows restock information: how many are coming and when (if you mouse over) I don't think this info is visible on IKEA website.
You are amazing and wish I could support you more~!

Questions to my fellow StockTrack brothers, who are always on a hunt for some great deals.

I am wondering
  • If I am able to find the STORE that has the sale price using StockTrack?
This comes came up today. At each of the Homedepot site, it still says the original price at $749.

Thanks again in advance.

Does that actually happen?

Back in my Retail days it was a considerable hassle for employees to purchase things. If it was a crazy clearance deal you would essentially have to hide it in the store somewhere and come get it after you were done working. None of us had the motivation - nor the extra money - to buy things to flip on the side.

1)0.02
2) store price $ 49-$350

Walmart sets $0.02 price for items they intend to remove from shelves to destroy or send back to manufacturer/warehouse. If you happen to find such an item still on the shelve take it to self-checkout, cashier won't let it through.

Walmart prices in-store differ, so across Canada they vary between $49 and $350 (at least in those stores that were scanned through stocktrack)

I've definitely found something at Walmart that someone had hidden before Face With Tears Of Joy and it was for sure an employee, because there'd be no reason for a regular customer to hide it.

(For reference, it was something in the small kitchen appliance section, and I found it a couple aisles over from where it should have been on the top shelf behind the display units for blenders/mixers).

Good day @seafish
You have created a really nice tool, thank you.

Couple of questions:
1. Are you the only one maintaining it?
2. Would be a nice feature to have best deals per store option. Since it seems that you are caching results, this shouldn't be that difficult, but as a result, checking the best discounts for items in stock for the store would have been a good starting point for groceries shopping while checking if there's anything for an egg hunt in your store of choice.
UPD: seems like Deals is the option I am looking for :)

Have a good day

Even if it wasn't at self checkout, $3 items, they can't stop from selling it. Not 2 cent recall items.

Just change the value in the 'Stores number' field. I put in 200 and it automatically dropped it to 183 so I assume that's all the HD's in Canada

Assuming some items are locked away
If I ask an associate for 3-4 pieces
Wont they make me check out with their presence?
If an item is actually $0.02 won’t they decline selling it?
Are there special ways around this ?

Correct. An associate is not allowed to sell .02 items. They are well aware

Was at wal mart just now and saw this item listed for $499 plus tax, stock track showed 5 in stock, I found 3 of them. Stock track listed the item at $100.00
Went to self check out and rang in at regular price ??
