    What am I missing? Isn't this just a blatant ad for Walmart?

    The down side is that to take advantage, you'd actually have to buy something from Walmart.

    Not much different than Amazon Prime. Except for the gasoline discount, which is a perk I'd use. The issue with both is the lack of clarity about who is really selling the item. Makes a difference on warranty and customer service.

    In either case trying to convince John Q. Public that he is getting 'free' stuff for a fee is just silly.

    WalMart has ties to my town so I see them a lot differently than most. The family money has benefited us in several ways. Really nice performing arts center for one.

    They are a retailer and behave just like all the rest. Low wages, minimal benefits etc are just a characteristic of the industry.

    I believe Bert is pointing out the goofy-ness of offering something for free that you have to pay for. One of those technicalities that marketing loves so much. The shipping is free but, the membership to the free-shipping-club is $xx . Cable TV for $39.99 (plus another $40 of service fees, local tariffs, equipment charges etc.) and the like.

    Agreed, I didn't get the sarcasm, my bad.
    Another example is the "get the second one free, just pay separate service and handling fee".

    BOGO, to heck with that, just give me the free one. If I have to buy one to get one free, then that means they are half priced when I buy two. With Amazon prime, it's simplest to have one person in your group, or family have membership. Let them do all the ordering, and have shipped to each member of group as requested.

    I often see deals like 0.99 for one and only 1.99 for two shrink wrapped together in a bargain pack.

    A co-worker recommended I buy something from Amazon. He also recommended buying a multipack to save money. I checked Amazon and a single tube was $3.99. The multipacks were as high as $8 a tube and none as cheap as just buying single tubes.

    I knew this thread was sarcasm from just reading the original thread title before the sarcasm bit was added.

    OK, got it, this time I recognize the sarcasm.

    I think a better term would be “Unlimited shipping?”
