Walmart - We Sell for Less!


#13

Where is that Walmart?

#14

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

#15

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

thanks,
Bruce

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).

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.


#18

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


#19

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

#20

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

#21

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

#22

I wonder how much Walmart actually paid for them?

Dave.


#23

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.


#24

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

#25

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.
