Wal-Mart has been known to deeply reduce prices on things they were clearancing, recent example the Ruger rifles talked about in a prior thread. 

And individual stores put out some crazy prices as well.  I picked-up a $100.00+ trail camera for $17.50 clearance... Believe me, I looked and looked for others that trip but there was only the one.

I am far from defending a corporation that I personally think is one of the root causes of the decline of small-town America. What their profit margins are or aren't should have no bearing at all on my point, however. Had mispricing happened in my line of work, I would fall all over myself to make it right for my customer. But I don't work retail and never will for reasons like this.

Blacktail - you are correct, clearance items can be great deals and I've taken advantage of those whenever it fit my needs.  But this became known that it isn't a clearance situation.

True, love it when my want/need coincides with clearance/blowout prices!

Did anybody actually think that those are fair prices for the arrows? Or was this just seen as an opportunity to get one over on a company that clearly made a mistake in their web page? An example of "Gotcha" consumerism?

And we know now what the situation is, but I was responding to your initial question inquiring if anyone had thought these ads could be accurate.

I see the confusion - I commented after the situation became known.  First thing I thought was "sweet clearance!" - I am a bargain cave junky at Cabelas myself.

To me it's not a matter of fair price or not. They are a company that pays pennies on the dollar for products made in china.  A product was listed at a price, paid for, and a notification in stock ready for pickup was sent.  Can't assume it was a mistake, who knows maybe they wanted to unload a bunch of them fast to lower their inventory, maybe they're going to carry a new product line.  Besides before anything is posted on Walmart's website it's proof read & reviewed for corrections multiple times, a kind of safety net for errors.  A company can't advertise a product, make it available to purchase, charge you for it, and then tell ya you cant have it.  Call it a misprint, call it false advertising, call it a bait -n- switch.  We have consumer protection laws for that reason.  Now in the past i have bought a few roll back priced items and in my experience Walmart stores have no idea what Walmart corporate does.  On occasions i've even had to print out my purchase orders and take it to customer service.  In this instance, i do i feel pricing was set correct by corporate.  However in-store inventory was inaccurate from what corporate shown as "in stock".  Which is obviously why people are getting those "out of stock/cancellation" notices later after purchasing online.   Really wish walmart would do a better job with their inventory.

Can't keep up with all of the edits and changes to your argument in the above post, so I have no idea if what I post will have any relevance to what the current version is, but...

In this instance, i do i feel pricing was set correct by corporate.

Ok.

Yeah, same here.  I even asked if the price on trail cams was a mistake.  "no, we're clearing them out".  Managed to get a few, SD cards and batteries cost more than the cameras. :o

I ordered 12 dozen. 2 dozen are ready for pick up and it appears the other 10 might be cancelled. Any bets I walk out the door with 24 arrows?

Less than 1% chance of them honoring the price based on my conversation with corporate today. I received a notice around 11 am that one of my +/- 15 order attempts actually went through, so I went to pick it up. The had exactly 4 arrows in their inventory, so they refunded my order stating it was a Walmart.com issue and they couldn't honor the pricing for anything more than what they had in stock. Of coarse corporate apologized about 20 times, but didn't have any authority to honor the pricing or even offer a gift card for the time and gas I wasted driving about 40 miles each way to find out that they wouldn't honor the order.

Did you tell them you were a lawyer with a pretty open schedule?

I ordered 3 dozen. 3 separate orders. They cancelled all three and refunded my money.
Too good to be true.
