Walmart BLOWS!

I know LOTS of Moms say they get such good deals with their Price Matching, but I just don't see it. There are products at our local WalMart that simply aren't that cheap.  Their Great Value yogurt is the same price as Yoplait (which is higher than Kroger by the way).  Why on earth would I buy Walmart brand when the national brand is the same price?  Not smart thinking MBAs.

Not to mention they have started with that Sam's Club crap of checking my receipt on the way out.  Really? At WalMart?  My items are BAGGED you idiots.

**Yes ladies, I am aware Sam's and WalMart are owned by the same company.

Rant over. Thanks for listening.

I don't go to walmart. I don't personally see any advantage to shopping there when there are plenty of better choices close by.

I shop primarily at Kroger, but do spend less on food at Wal-Mart when I go.  As long as I've been a member (like 4 years), Sam's has always checked receipts.

every walmart is different. our local walmart is awesome. they have great prices that are actually lower then other stores and a great selection. we do a majority of our shopping there. and ours does not check receipts at the door. half the time there is not even a door greeter. if there is one, they never pay attention to people walking out. just to the people walking in.

 I am aware of that.  Walmart has never checked my receipt before though.

Walmart's Great Value hamburgers are AWESOME!!! They are bigger, taste better and higher quality than the name brand. Not sure how they are priced... But they are better tasting!

 I had the most effed up, whacked out experience at Walmart last week. I swear, everyone in there was three tools short of a tool shed. I am going to go to Target for awhile. lol
