Went down to my local Kmart, and put 6 qts. of Castrol GTX 5w-30 in my basket. Went to the checkout counter, she says, oh, we can't sell it at the online price. I speak to a manager, she says we can't match online prices. Wait, this is a Kmart, and you can't match Kmart? Nope.

I told her that was really stupid, but she was already walking away. She gave me that look like I was trying to pull a fast one by expecting to pay the advertised sale price.

So I go online, where I see it for $2.50. It says it's in stock at my local store and I can pick it up there. OK, add it to the cart. Go to the checkout page, and it says that it's not in stock, but if I want to drive to a store that's 25 or so miles away, I can get it there.

I'll pay the extra few bucks at Walmart at the regular price. Or use some other oil. At least Walmart will sell things to you for the advertised price.


Experts are often wrong, but rarely in doubt.

WOW, that is ridiculous. No wonder Kmart is slowly dying, what kind of [censored] company can't honor their websites price.

I just tried, and just like you, it sends me to a store 50 miles away to pick it up when I practically live next door to one. Stupid.

K-Marts around here are super ghetto.

I would have left my cart right there in the checkout lane and walked away.

Sears is the same way (same company). Not matching your own online prices is dumb. LOTS of stores were the same way, but more and more are embracing it though. They were completely separating the retail from online businesses, and since say, walmart.com is not walmart retail store, or any other brick & mortar store - they wouldn't price match.
