Also if you look at faq it says flyer price and does not need to be posted.

Also, thanks OP, Idk why you get so many downvotes tbh.
Thanks. I don't concern myself with the complainers or downvotes. I will continue to post threads on SCOP if I find them, whether they like it or not. Maybe these people happen to work for Walmart.

Just last week I had about half a dozen messages from members who thanked me for the thread, making them aware of SCOP. In the past the cashier would just reduce the price to the shelf label/flyer. They were pleased with the information I provided.

I am glad you think the righteous thing to do is to make users aware of SCOP via hot deals, where SCOP was made to ensure customers are not scammed unethically with false advertising, but to also encourage members to fully utilize SCOP by driving to Walmart and getting free products.

Never concern yourself with nay sayers, no

Costco return policy is also a hot deal should post about that. I have seen people use products for a year and then return them. That's the punishment those companies deserve for making a product that they weren't completely satisfied with.

Funny how someone ALWAYS posts this in a WalMart SCOP thread, but it couldn't be further from the truth. WalMart is notorious for having different online vs. in-store flyers. They will advertise a price in the online flyer, yet the in-store flyer will always be magically missing a page or two.

The main barrier for claiming an item like this is the sheer incompetence of WalMart CSRs. It usually ends up turning into a 20-30+ minute affair, and raises your blood pressure a notch by trying to explain what SCOP even is/how it works. Questionable worth.

SCOP is a voluntary code that Walmart has chosen to participate in. I am all for bending rules and taking advantages of promotions (who here isn't?), but this is taking things too far.

One thing is catching a price error and having the retailer making it right, and its another thing posting about the price error so every freeloader could get to the store to take advantage or that error and get free sht.

Waiting for someone who got childhood psychological shadow judging people here who just ask Walmart to honor SCOP they promise.

SCOP shouldn't be a free-for-all

Nah, you're just a freeloader, dude!
I was a hardware clerk at Canadian Tire in my teens, and the amount of self entitled people like you who would sh*t on me for flyer errors was too damn high! Like I put the price in the flyer myself, lol
FYI, flyers are made weeks, if not months in advance (at least back in my teens)
