Walmart - We Sell for Less!


Re: It's come to this . . . - Namir - 10-27-2009

Where is that Walmart?


Re: It's come to this . . . - Thomas Radtke - 10-27-2009

Walmart isn't exactly the right place to sell a business calculator, I conclude. Staples still sells the 10BII for $36,99?

Too bad it is not true. You could make a killing on eBay!

thanks,

I was unable to open the photo site with the pictures (I'm temporarily on dial-up).

I posted a couple of months ago about HP10BII calcs being sold at various Walmarts, in the US South, at least, at cut rate prices. I bought one in Athens, AL, for $17, and another in Blytheville, AR, for $11. For the money, they're quite nice.

I keep hoping for them to do likewise for the TI-89, which they sell for $160. One-third price is about all I'd pay for a TI.

I particularly like the notion that it's sold as "Party Supply"!


Re: It's come to this . . . - Martin Pinckney - 10-27-2009

Yes, it is true. I bought 33 at this price. And no, you can't make a killing on eB**. Just look at how many are offered there right now. I did sell enough on eB** to recover my costs. Then my wife asked for some to give to her students as rewards (she teaches high school).




Re: It's come to this . . . - Martin Pinckney - 10-27-2009

Mike, the sign over the 10bII's said $2.


Re: It's come to this . . . - Mike Morrow - 10-28-2009

Now I feel silly thinking $11 was a great price! :-)

I wander when we'll see the HP35S and HP50 in similar situation. And wouldn't be surprised.


Re: It's come to this . . . - DaveJ - 10-28-2009

I wonder how much Walmart actually paid for them?

Dave.


Re: It's come to this . . . - Dia C. Tran - 10-28-2009

That kind of thing happened at Walmart quite often. They put the price wrong but you won't get your calc for that price. I ran into that problem many times.


Re: It's come to this . . . - Reth - 10-29-2009

Did you read the thread above? The guy GOT 33 of them at this price.

Three years ago, I got ten 12C, those with the 3 button cells, for 20$ apiece. They were being sold out as the shop replaced them with Platinums ... .

I then asked 100$ per unit on ebay and they were gone quite rapidly ;).

A strange world.
