WALMART buyers rush to snag a $180 baby car seat for just $45.
There’s a trick to finding that offer, or a similar savings — and it involves your eyes.
Browsing around the baby area, she came across a Graco car seat on the top shelf.
Day noted that there was a yellow sticker on the box that Walmart uses to indicate a clearance price.
The price of the Graco SnugRide SnugLock 35 car seat dropped from $179.97 to just $45.
That’s a savings of 75 percent!
The item is also sold out online at Walmart.com.
But Day isn’t the only TikToker to find this deal.
In March, bargain hunter @thisisnt snagged the car seat for just $25.
He told his followers the purchase was a great way to “get noticed at the baby shower.”
How to find clearance offers
Walmart puts a yellow sticker on a product to indicate that it is a clearance item.
But it is not always easy to find these products.
That’s because Walmart and other supermarkets employ a strategy known as “eye level is buying level.”
They place higher-priced items on the middle shelves so you can see them better.
To snag a bargain, you literally have to search hard.
Check out the top and bottom shelves, also in the back, behind other items.
There you will find rather cheap or clearance items.
However, the yellow stickers at Walmart are not always correct.
Walmart uses a complex pricing structure in its physical stores, which means prices can change faster than labels.
But often clearance items are even cheaper than these stickers suggest.
To find out the true price of a product, you should use the Walmart app to scan the barcode and see the price in your store.
That way, you know exactly how much you’re going to pay before you checkout your products.
Because of the huge savings, this method is known as secret clearance among Walmart enthusiasts.
For example, a recent clandestine buyer found a $198 sofa for $45.
And another scored a $149 dining room set for just $37.
