The wife was wanting an upgrade to our idiot box (TV). Been hanging onto a 30" CRT for way too long and HD programming is pretty nice to watch. Besides, a flat LCD hung on the wall is better use of space than the mongo TV on the dresser.|
Anyway, I was cruising Walmart a week before black friday. Saw the Sceptre 40" LCD at $299. Adding tax to it I kinda hesitated. Not highly motivated to blow c-notes on an idiot box. All along I had to accept cookies and java script on the walmart site, so they knew what I was shopping for.
After looking at what was available locally and on newegg I came back to walmart online for that cheap **** Sceptre the next day. Oddly the price dropped from $299 to $250 ???? I pulled the trigger at $250+tax. Cheap enough.
So, it appears that to me that Walmart was dynamically adjusting the online pricing to promote the sale.
