Went to Wally World today to get some groceries and .45 Auto. Went for a box of WWB FMJ. The lady retrieved it from the case and rung it up.

"That'll be $37.59"

"Oh no, the price tag says $17.34"

"That's weird, the price must have gone way up. I'll need to look into this later."

"That's fine, just let me get a box of the Remington [for $17.86]"

"No that's ok, I can override it to the price on the tag since it's in that spot"

"Ok, thank you.

I got it home and it's JHP. Got me a pretty good deal I think.

Why would I? Three slots: WWB 50rd for $17, WWB 100rd for $35 (which is what I thought must have been part of the mistake) and WWB 200rd for ~$55.

No differing slots for FMJ or JHP. So why read the fine print on the package?

Ah I get it now. You guys don't approve. Well I'm not going to get into an argument. I like the forum and its members. We'll have to agree to disagree if that's ok.

Whenever I purchase any ammunition, I will completely read the ends of the box so I understand exactly what I am purchasing and whether it is what I intend to purchase for that ammunition replenishment purchase trip. I will also check (when able) the contents of the box of ammunition to make sure all of the rounds are present in the box. I have found boxes of ammunition at Academy Sports that were missing one or two rounds. Remington ammunition usually has the ends glued shut. I also look at one or two rounds in the box to know what type of bullets are loaded, FMJ flat nose, FMJ round nose, etc.; the box end may just state FMJ. In the case of Winchester white box FMJ in 9mm, there is "normal" 115 grain loading and there is "124 grain NATO" which is loaded to +P and not stated on the box!!.

When I was 15, I might have thought this fortuitous. Now, I'd take it back to walmart with the receipt and point out the error.
Not me. The last time I tried to do right, it wasn't worth the hassle for non caring people.

As long as I don't intentionally mis-represent merchandice I want to buy, if Walmart screws up to my advantage, I consider it a win. Just my .02
I have never knowingly ripped them off. As I'm sure they have never knowingly ripped me off. This said I'm betting the latter has happens many times over that I don't catch. ;)

I have always found whenever there's a discrepancy in a price it's nearly (99+%) in their favor.

When I lived back east I found a $10 Bill in the parking lot of a local big chain store. I looked around and saw no one near by. I go inside and wait in the customer service line with the other zombies... When I finally got to the counter to turn it in to lost and found the young woman looked at me like I was crazy.

For all I knew some senior had lost it and could probably use it more than me?

Pretty sad we live in a time when doing the honest / right thing is considered bizarre. :(

No, I would not say that offering to pay more for a different brand than I originally asked for, in order to get the right price, would be ripping them off. Seeing the wrong thing in the spot on the shelf and then knowing that, insisting that I receive that price would have been ripping them off. I already attempted to do right by them but they insisted on selling me the ammo at that price. I didn't realize till I got home that it was the wrong stuff. Excuse me for being happy that for once, the error was in my favor (it most certainly usually is NOT).

I once read a thread where a member sent a Millenium in for warranty and got back a PT1911. That was a $300 mistake in his favor but the members were patting his back and shouting his good luck, and that was from the company this forum is all about.

If WalMart messed it up I would still point out the error, pay the correct amount and move on. It is a matter of integrity not to mention honesty. It was an honest mistake so you should make it right. After all, if they shorted you, wouldn't you bring it to their attention? Just saying.

My nickles worth (inflation). Nothing to get your shorts in a bunch about. Everybody seemed to have erred a little one way or another in this transaction. Sometimes it is better to just let things be. The clerk may lose her job over a human error. If you feel that you would return to the store and straighten things out. The God bless you. For me, I would just leave things be like the o.p. I doubt if this incident would condemn him to hades for eternity.
