This newscaster was completely serious with his insane explanation of why Amazon stock skyrocketed

Last week, shares of Amazon shot up 100 points following news that the online retailer had actually (gasp!) generated a profit during its second fiscal quarter. As a result, Amazon’s market cap, for the first time in history, surpassed that of Walmart’s.

While it remains to be seen how long Amazon’s shares remain at all-time high levels, one newscaster from KTVN Channel 2 in Las Vegas presented a wild theory, on-air no less, attempting to explain how Amazon managed to leapfrog Walmart in terms of overall value. More →

Amazon Prime Vs. Walmart Unlimited Shipping

Amazon Prime vs. Walmart’s ‘unlimited shipping’: Which deal is really better?

Amazon Prime vs. Walmart’s ‘unlimited shipping’: Which deal is really better?

Walmart recently unveiled its new trial program aimed at taking on Amazon Prime: For $50 a year, you’ll be able to get unlimited three-day shipping for products you order through the giant retailer. This is $49 less than the $99 that Amazon Prime charges users every year for free two-day shipping and other perks, although Rather Be Shopping points out that Amazon’s deal could still deliver stronger value depending on your needs.

How To Save Money

New free service automatically gets you money back when items you’ve already bought go on sale

New free service automatically gets you money back when items you’ve already bought go on sale

How annoying is it when you buy something online or in a store only to find out that it went on sale a few days later? Many stores have policies that offer to refund shoppers when this happens, but by and large, consumers don’t know about these policies or don’t bother to keep track of sale prices in order to take advantage of them.

Now, however, there’s a free service that does the heavy lifting for you, promising to automatically get you a refund if there are coupons you missed or if the price on something you purchased drops after you buy it.

In short, you’re crazy if you don’t sign up for this service. More →

Walmart to take on Amazon with a Prime-like service of its own

A new report from The Information claims that Walmart is planning to roll out a shipping service of its own aimed at taking on Amazon, the world’s largest online retailer.

Walmart’s upcoming shipping service is reportedly codenamed “Tahoe” and is on schedule to launch sometime later this spring or summer. Notably, Walmart was initially hoping to have its nascent shpping service up and running before 2015 but was ultimately forced to delay its release amid technical difficulties with the service’s software.

Indiana cops find an active meth lab inside a Walmart bathroom

When we think of meth labs, we typically think of someone running one out of their RV or their basement or, if they’re super-fancy, running one in a massive underground facility a la Walter White in later seasons of Breaking Bad. However, it looks like you can operate a meth lab in a much smaller space if you really need to… such as a Walmart bathroom. More →
