Walmart electronics deals
MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -
Check the cabinets - the glass or plastic people under the show racks.
This is where Kyle James, president and blogger of RatherBeShopping.com, stated Walmart keeps quality clearance products the store's either having difficulty going or trying to protect from theft. He stated the item nestled in the cabinets is typically better quality and a deeper price than what exactly is presented regarding the noticeable approval rack.
"there are many really good clearance discounts (in those cupboards), " James said. "we saw deals on outside hard drives, Bluetooth speakers, and in some cases, it absolutely was less expensive than what Amazon had been attempting to sell because of it.
"I asked a worker how come that stuff is down there, and she said, 'Itis just excess inventory, stuff we now haven't put out yet.' I happened to be astonished because of it!"
To test his concept in your area, savvy shopper Carolyn Michael-Banks and I also went to several Mid-South Walmart shops. This woman is the master of a trip of opportunities Memphis tour business and an associate of this Metro Memphis destinations Association.
We present most cases, James ended up being right-about just how Walmart's marked approval rack in electronics doesn't provide very good deals. A lot of the material we on the rack, we found for much less cash on Amazon.com.
But at Cordova, Tennessee, Walmart (577 N. Germantown Parkway), we found a pleasant couple of Sony headsets inside a synthetic closet underneath the screen racks. It was marked as approval - and discounted from .99 to . Immediately inside shop, I examined my smartphone for Amazon's cost for a passing fancy headphones. The very best Amazon could offer ended up being .50.
Under concealed digital camera, I inquired a shop employee why those headsets were squirreled away inside that pantry:
"(Employee) Probably because of the price...the cost quantity. They do not wish to have them from the ground."
"(Andy) as it's a good deal? Oh, we see. You're speaking about for safety."
"(Andy) For security?"
"(Employee) For security, yeah."
Like James said, the Cordova Walmart had saved those headphones into the case maintain all of them from being taken.
Do not be prepared to get a hold of this scenario at every Walmart. Including, Michael-Banks and I also failed to find any clearance products tucked away in cabinets at either the western Memphis, Arkansas, Walmart (798 W. provider path, western Memphis, AR) or perhaps the Whitehaven Walmart (5255 Elvis Presley Boulevard, Memphis).
But it is fun - and a potentially huge money-saver - to inquire of a member of staff to see all of them. "As long as you know very well what to take into consideration, you've got a chance to get things you need, and that's exactly what it's allowed us doing, " Michael-Banks said.
