I want Pirates of the Carribean, and Walmart has it for $15.XX online, which is the cheapest I've found. Will it be the same price in stores? Thanks.

Depends on the store. The prices will vary between Wal*Marts in the same city. For new releases I've seen people post that their Wal*Mart has it for $19.xx while others (like the one I go to) will have it for $14.xx.

It's usually good to check the Bargains Forum to see what prices look like around the country.

Wal-Mart and walmart.com are seperate entities and, from my experience, they will not honor each others prices. I tried that with a digital camera once and that's when I was told they are indeed not one in the same.

Plus walmart.com carries a lot of things you won't find in stores (especially of the electronic variety).

Exactly.

A nice thing is that most items purchased at WalMart.com can be returned to a Wal-Mart store should you have a problem.
