[Walmart] Rain-X Weatherbeater Wiper Blades FREE with SCOP - YMMV

Walmart has Rain-X Weatherbeater Wiper Blades on sale for $8.97. (reg $12.97) They are scanning at $12.97 in store.

Under SCOP https://www.retailcouncil.org/scanner-p ... racy-code/ I think the wiper blades would qualify as being Free.
You would get the first one free and the second one would be $8.97. If you bought 5 different sizes, each one would be free.

Some stores might try to deduct $10.00 off the regular price of $12.97 making it $2.97.

SCOP ain't what it used to be, and it was still challenging at many retailers.

Since they changed the rules I don't even bother with it anymore.

These look like the ones I’ve been stocking up on at dollarama @ $4/blade. Even comes with a rain-x windshield treatment wipe.

Went to Peavy Mart recently and the chicken wire scanned $4 over the shelf sticker. I asked about the SCOP and the cashier knew nothing and neither did an assistant manager. Store Manager said they don’t follow it but after much discussion he gave it to me for the shelf price.

It seems only certain retailers follow the SCOP so YMMV.

Im not sure there was a rule change but stores are interpreting the rules differently. I tried a SCOP at Canadian Tire and was denied because the shelf label that was in front of the product had a different name, manager said that because it was something different I should have known it was the wrong price?? I had a SCOP request at RSCC denied because the paper flag for the item was a sale that had ended the day before, manager said that the flag was only valid until the date printed on the flag??

I don't even bother with SCOP anymore, the casher's NEVER know about it and think your a liar and when the manager gets involved they invent reasons to not follow the practice. Such a PITA for almost always nothing.

I was shocked to get a successful SCOP earlier this week when the cashier typed in the wrong plu code for some vegetables. I just said you typed in the wrong code and instead of correcting it he made me go to the store manager, so I said I get it free because it's the wrong price right? He said yes and gave it to me for free. So it never hurts to ask.

It depends on what the shelf label says. If the shelf label says $12.97 and it scans at $12.97 then there is no SCOP as you are getting it for what you thought (advertised) it was. If the shelf label says $8.97 and it scans at $12.97 then you get the first one free (under $10 is free) and the second one for $8.97 as that's the price you thought (advertised) it was.

If the shelf label says $12.97 and it scans at $12.97 and you show them the flyer, you get it at $8.97 (nothing free) because the shelf label and the scan price is the same.

It's all about what the Shelf Label says vs what the item scans at.


I am incorrect as per post 21, the flyer is included in the SCOP.

OK, upon reading the OP link further, is it true like if you get one 24 and one 19, if both are scanning at 12.97 both are free as they are different SKUs? And thanks for answering, though they are advertising in the flyer for 8.97 so doesn't SCOP apply anyways, regardless if instore they are displayed as 8.97 or not? Reason being they are advertised in flyer to sell at 8.97?

I think I've only ever had SCOP apply once a couple years back for a coffee maker, I pointed it out and the CSR stood there to make sure the cashier did it. Was pretty surprised and happy to see the CSR was clear and said it needed to be done accordingly.

SCOP sure has become annoying. Last time I did it was at RCSS. The cashier verified the shelf price and tried to ring it in at that price. I said SCOP applied. She called a supervisor who was stomping around like she was on a real power-trip on her cell phone. Little people love power, so she tried to deny deny deny she even brought a print out of the SCOP rules to prove I was wrong... except when she started reading it out loud to me, like I was a dumb child that she wasn't to teach a lesson to, she immediately proved I was correct and I stopped her mid-sentence. She finally, in a huff, told the cashier, "just give it to him" and left rudely.

That's what I thought as well until someone pointed this out to me. If it's advertised in the flyer and it scans at the shelf ticket price, SCOP still applies. A manager told me that recently.

No, SCOP applies to the displayed price in the store, it has nothing to do with a flyer price. The SCOP is to protect customers from a displayed price in the store being lower than the scanned price at the register causing a customer to pay more than the displayed price. The SCOP refers to Advertised price, this is not the same as as a store flyer. The advertised price is the price displayed in the store, either a sale sign, those big numbers on a pallet of merchandise or the label on the shelf where the merchandise is located.

I am incorrect, the flyer price is included in the SCOP as per post 21.
