Default Cool deal at Walmart this morning

I went to Walmart to get some AA rechargeable batteries. While there I got some salad plates for my sis and then went to the ammo counter to look for #4 Bucks for my 12 gauge pump.

They didn't have any so I asked if I can pay for these stuff here and they said sure. They rang me up for $36 and I gave 'em two $20s. Their cash drawer wouldn't open and they owe me $4.

I told them same thing happened at the camera counter where I got the batteries. Then they said there's gonna be a delay to get this straightened out and I said ok I'll wait.

Then the clerk grabbed a knife off the wall, said this is an $8 knife and I sell it to you for $4 and we're done ok?

I LOL and said hey why not? I took it and on my way.

I love Walmart. We had a new Walmart mini market opened in my neighborhood so I did all my grocery shopping there. Can't beat their prices.

I love these kind of stores. Where I live our state doesn't have anything like that such as Ikea or Aldi or big chain stores..

In Australia we do have Aldi, Costco, & Ikea but in my state of Tasmania we don't have them because they have no current plans to expand. Ikea will ship here but they charge a lot. Amazon is opening physical stores and launching their full blown site like you guys have next year. You'd find them in more important states like NSW & Victoria and others but not in Tasmania.

Bummer. Costco's a good store. Big money saver. Here, I would have to go to other side of city to go to one.

Long way to save a buck.

No Walmart here too. But we do have something called Saco World and another called Carrefour, if you know those. We also have one local chain store. I don't think any of them is as general as Walmart tho. I could say Saco World could be, if I knew better.

Does Walmart have groceries/consumables too? Saco World does not. But usually they are located in or near huge shopping malls with branded stores around it with everything else needed. That makes it a touring destination too. It is one of those places foreigners like to attend here as well.

I do all my shopping on Amazon except for fresh produce and meats.

Huh, didn't notice that. yeah, we do here. We even have dollar stores where everything is dirt cheap including food.

As to Amazon, we get a bit of everything here. In fact I have some guitar related stuff coming.

I heard this some kinda Amazon Prime or something that sells food. Buying food online? Wouldn't one suffer waiting for food to come a weak later?

Prime pantry. But if you want something faster use the regular prime shipping for 1 or 2 day delivery and if you want it even sooner use prime now and get 1 hour delivery.
