mainstays cookware set / overcharged

1 El Camino StSacramento, CA, United States Review updated:

It's almost camping time so I purchased a inexpensive cookware set for camping. The posted price was $17.98.
At the register I was charged $44.98 for a set of cutlery that had a shelf price of $22.98 so we had a big deal with the manager checking the price on that. I chose not to buy it at that price. I did not notice that I was over charged two dollars on the cookware set until I got home.
Think about it with as many customers as Walmart has if one million people did not notice being overcharged that is $2, 000, 000.00 a windfall! What do I have to do now to get my two dollars back? I have to take it back to customer service wait in a long long line for 30 minutes. Or I will just eat it as I have so many times before. I've come to accept that if I'm going to shop at WalMart I am going to be overcharged!

    I bought the frying pan at WalMart because it was Made in U.S.A. (something very hard to find at WalMart)
    After just three uses, it seems to me it's headed back to WalMart real soon for a full refund... JUNK!!

    Bought there large skillet with a glass top, used it several times, seemed fine no problem with the coating but I only used maybe 4 times, but while it was not in use and had not been for a week or more the glass top exploded. No one was in the kitchen at the time but heard this lot noise and we found it in millions of pieces. I think the top is a defected product.

    I recently purchased a set of black cook wear and have only had it a month. With no scratching nor scraping the non stick paint is chipping off. I don't know how this is a proper set if your cooking for tour family and children and find paint chips in our food. It needs to be recalled and people should get refunded for them. They shouldn't be sold if the paint chips this easily.
