[Walmart] Sleeping Beauty Diamond Edition blu ray $3.97 YMMV

Hey guys. Walmart is currently advertising their BluRay Diamond Edition of Sleeping beauty for 13.97 in the black friday flyer. Unfortunately for them it scans up as 18.99 at the register, and most of their copies dont have price tags on them. So as a result of the Canadian Scanning code of practice, they need to mark it down to the flyer price of $13.97 then discount another $10 off. The final price will be $3.97 plus applicable taxes.

Cheers

getting the scanning code of practice enforced by a walmart cashier is incredibly difficult to do without a manager's intervention, as initially they feign ignorance, then refuse it outright, after which they'll probably tell you "you probably knew it was an error and are trying to get it for free".

How rude..

I used SCOP at Walmart a year or 2 ago on an FM transmitter.. didn't have any problems, actually I remember picking up a second one and going to pay at a different cash. If they had tried to weasel out of it I would stick to my guns with even greater determination so I could see how pissed off they are when I finally win lol

You miscalcuated the SCOP. SCOP is 10% of the difference in price so 10% of $5.03= 0.50 cents off the sale price so you should be paying $13.97-.50=$13.47. Not $10 off!

- Please ignore this post. I was confused with PM policies!

O rly ? I think you're talking about a price match policy, not SCOP

On a claim being presented by the customer, where the scanned price of a product at checkout is higher than the price displayed in the store or than advertised by the store, the lower price will be honoured; and
(a) if the correct price of the product is $10 or less, the retailer will give the product to the customer free of charge; or
(b) if the correct price of the product is higher than $10, the retailer will give the customer a discount of $10 off the corrected price.

Sorry, I was confused with PM (at Fshop,etc)which is 10% of difference. OP is correct.

I thought it was only working if the price of 13.97$ was shown on the shelves.

Got it at best buy after price match for a little over $12 yesterday after pricing matching from amazon.ca (they had the price at $13 something yesterday). Crazy price for a disney blu-ray movie, Usually they cost 3 times that much!

This is correct. Its not the flyer price. It is what is shown on the shelf/tag price.

so in this case, it's not advertised as 13.97$ in store ?
it's a no-go ?

my dad was currently at WM, so I was about to ask him to try. I'll forget it.

It worked for me as well. You just have to get a good cashier/CSM that knows their stuff. Thanks OP
