Cotter Pin Assortment Kit (555 pieces) Price $5.60

-25 Deal Score
2,987 Views
Walmart online has mismatched the prices on the Cotter Pin Assortment Kits. I bought the 555 piece kit for the price of the 144 piece kit and did an in-store pick up. No Shipping! Only cost me $5.60 these kits normally go for at least double the cost. You have to select the 555 from the drop down menu and you will see the price mistake.

Too bad it wasn't a more lucrative mistake. Harbor Freight charges less but if you don't live near a Harbor Freight store ordering online thru Harbor Freight charges $6.99 to ship + Item cost @ $4.79 = $11.78 . Even if you use the 20% off coupon it still ends up costing a total of $9.42 at HF.

Wouldnt doubt it if you get the 144 piece kit. Looks like they swapped the pricing on the site..If you look at original price, the 144 kit was twice the price (well what is showing up as the 144 piece). Walmart screwed me over with the redbull deal. It was supposed to be a case for $3.24, but when I went to pick up they only gave me a can even though the order clearly said case of 12.

In the link you provided, the description says 144, not 555. I'm confused. I don't even know what this is used for, so it doesn't matter to me, but I thought I'd point this out.

I don't live near a Harbor Freight store and I certainly don't want to pay Harbor Freight for the shipping. They charge $6.99 for Standard Ground to ship!

I ordered the 555 piece kit and did an in-store pick up and I was charged the lower price of $5.60. I thought the same thing that I would get the 144 piece kit, but no it was the 555 piece kit. I work on a big farm and this kit comes in handy with all the equipment at our facility, Lol! Normally I would have to go digging through a bunch of junk to find cotter pins in our shop. This is a time saver for me and time is money.

Walmart charged me for the lower price of the smaller 144 piece kit instead of the higher price on the 555 piece kit. Walmart has the prices screwed up in their system. Harbor Freight also charges more because of shipping! And you are labeled a Teacher and can't understand what is clearly printed, plus you do not know what a cotter pin is. Why did you even comment, I'm the one that should be confused! Mouth-breather!
