This photo (ad scan) was taken on my iPhone. I apologize if the quality isn't great.

Walmart seems to be experimenting with different pricing for different areas. Metro areas where there is lots of competition get the better pricing, and ghetto WMs like mine try to gouge the peasants for a few dollars more. I say boo to WM.

Experimenting? They always do this. We have 3 Walmarts in Springfield (I have no clue why ... ) and you can find different prices in the same city.

There are four or five states that get different Walmart pricing than the rest of us, and that's because there are individual state laws that prevent losing money on sales or something of that nature. I found out about it during Black Friday. I know that Wisconsin and Hawaii are two of them.

From there, different stores change prices as they see fit, but as far as advertised prices go, that's the way it works.

And at the 4 Walmart Stores on Oahu you can find 4 different prices on the same item sometimes.

Does Wal-Mart price-match their website?

I was interested in getting G-Force through them for $20 minus the $10 Disney Coupon, it's $20 on their website but $25 in-store.
