Walmart and the Lite Cartridges

I was in my local Walmart today and noticed all the Lite cartridges are marked down to $25....not on sale...clearanced. What's with that? The Expression was $198.

  1. thats how much the black friday carts are now 25.00. and the E's are the same too at 198. because its after the sale your still getting a good price just not as good as you would have on BF. and they are not full price either like the rest of the lites.

  2. Yes, those particular carts are the ones they made especially for Black Friday. They sold for $20 on BF, but said they retailed for $25. That really makes one stop and think...Wow, not that not that great of a deal! For sure.

  3. I might have to go get a new E just for the Paytime cart.

  4. online you can order your choice of cartridges for $25 (that is the reason I didn't fight the crowds on Black Friday--I knew I could get just what I wanted online....)

  5. For some reason, I think those lites are $25 regular retail. If you look on the walmart.com site, that's the "normal" price. I was able to get a "Jolly Holiday" on Sunday..I was so excited!!! Its the only one of those I really wanted!

  7. I wish we could get those prices here in Canada - although I did notice that some of the Lites are on for $39 at our Walmart.

  8. Sometimes Walmart "clearances" items, not really to give us a good price, but to fool those who THINK they are getting a clearance item. There are those that only shop "clearance" and think everything's a good deal if it's got the "special sticker." Personally, Walmart rarely has really good clearance deals, at least at my stores.

  9. I got the teal Expression last week for $150 at my Walmart. I couldn't resist at that price. They only had a few of the lite cartridges for $25.

  10. Oddly enough, I was able to purchase all of the Black Friday Lites (except Jolly Holiday) the other day at my Walmart where they had been clearanced down to $15 each.
