Hey everyone, I was browsing in a local Walmart store and I found this laptop 86% off on clearance using the Walmart app. It seems to be another definite YMMV clearance deal but if you can find them it seems like a decent $50 laptop for family members or whatever.
If you can find these in stock at another Walmart store that aren't at the discounted price then YES
you can buy at one store and return at another for a lower price but it's total YMMV. I'd suggest that if you attempt this that you use two different forms of payment and tell them that you used the wrong card on your original purchase that you want to return it and purchase it again using a different form of payment.
USE THE WALMART APP
to find local stores that have the laptop in stock and use brickseek [brickseek.com]
to assist you in your search for pricing. The inventory doesn't always match between the two but the price should absolutely match between them! This laptop showed up as 0 in stock using Brickseek but was listed as available in store, which it was.
The Walmart app search process:
Using the Walmart app, tap inside the "Search in stores and online" search bar and then type in "acer aspire e-15" and press <Search>. Next, tap on the "At Your Store" tab to filter the search results to only those items that are listed in your local store's inventory. If you don't see the item listed then it's unlikely to be in stock at that store. To change your local store and search another store, right below the At Your Store tab, tap the address of the current store or the >. Here you can enter in a new zip code or you can scroll to select another store. Once you select another store location it will return you back to the search results screen where you can see if the item is available for that store location. Repeat this step as needed to find stores with it in stock.
When you get to the store you may have to have a walmart employee help you find the laptop. It should be locked up with the other laptops but it might also be out back in their "security cage" or with other clearance/left over black friday items. Walmart can be strange with where they keep these types of items.
