It’s not often you get to see a card like this: A giant red and yellow print of a giant blue bird on a yellow background.
“You can’t go wrong with this card!” its caption reads.
It’s a card that comes with a $25 discount.
“The learning app, learning experience, and learning card is available now for $35,” the card’s description reads.
And for $25?
That’s $25 off of the total cost of the card.
But what does that mean?
“It means the card is no longer available for purchase at Walmart,” says a Walmart spokesperson.
I checked with the company, and the answer is: not much.
I contacted the company to ask what it was charging for the card, and was told: “We’re not currently charging any fees to get this card into your cart,” the spokesperson said.
What’s the point of the discount?
Well, Walmart doesn’t have any direct pricing information, so we’re guessing this card isn’t being sold to the general public.
“We are looking at other ways to encourage people to take advantage of the discounts, including promotions,” the company said in a statement to Mashable.
“There’s no limit to the number of cards you can use in one year.
That’s why you should always buy at least two of these cards.”
So the only way to get the card and still get the $25 price is to buy a bunch of them.
And that’s a huge problem.
