Bought a FoodSaver from Walmart.com - it is clearly open box.

Fingerprints/smudges - wasn't shrinkwrapped in plastic like new items usually are.

It seems like they should have told me that in advance. Hopefully it works fine, but a bit disappointed.

I haven't used WalMart much and this doesn't inspire confidence.

People who shop at WalMart and complain about shopping at WalMart and then look for sympathy.

My last visit - they told me to put on a shirt but then made me leave the store...


...so I promptly headed to Millers Bar

...missed that shirt

...when they suggested I leave I did

Walmart is usually a last resort. But out here in the hinterlands of Indiana they are actually one of the better sources of gluten free food items. So it goes

I ordered 2 packages of Old Wisconsin smoked beef snack sticks as filler items at Walmart a month ago. It tasted awful. Strong artificial taste. Started the return online. Got an auto email from them in the same day saying that the refund has been issued and for me to keep, donate or throw out the items. No need to send back. No reason given, but I'm pretty sure it's because it was a food item.

Place nearby use to buy Amizon/Wally returns to resell. Seems they have such volume they don't check anything, just slot it into the category and then sell off the plastic wrapped SKUs to the highest offer. He'd show up with like 1,000 or so knock-off women's purses or a hundred coffee makers and then figure out how to resell them, by the time his place burned to the gound it was so chock full customers couldn't negotiate the aisles.

I bought my FoodSaver direct, on sale. Much cheaper than anyone else had it. I buy the bag rolls off of Amazon. They're a bit too big to fit in the machine to start with, so I run them backwards for a while. Bit of a pain, but for the cost savings it's not too much of an inconvenience.

Walmart is a last resort for me first, because of their egregious labor practices, and second because of their usually lousy selection of whatever I'm looking for (in last resort mode) and the three stores I've been to are dingy, all the time.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Unfortunately Walmart doesn’t give discounts for open box items. Return and rebuy.

never a big fan of 'Foodsaver' brand...
Return it & check the #1 (4.5 Stars/ 9,463 ratings) on bezosville,
Geryon Automatic Vacuum Sealer $70

I got a very similar one last year, 'commercial' and all stainless steel on ebay for $40.
Very pleased with it.
