Wal-Mart Accidentally Slashes Prices, Blames Glitch
Treadmills for $33? Computer monitors for $9? The deals were even too good to be true — even for Wal-Mart. The megaretailer said a "technical error" caused certain products to be priced absurdly low or high on its website early Wednesday morning. By Wednesday evening, the discounter had fixed the glitch and decided to cancel the orders of customers who were able to snag the items at steep discounts.
