Journal Chacham's Journal: Chronicle: Emailed Walmart about confusing item description 4

Walmart has a Slinky for $3.00. The description says: Clearance! Was $1.86. That seemed backwards.

So, i sent an email from their website:

Metal Slinky

says the price is $3.00. The description says "Clearance! Was $1.86" Isn't that backwards? Because it went to clearance the price went up?

The response i received was

Can you please send us the link where you found the promotion.

To answer the question, i sent back

The site is

In red letters where it says Clearance! Was $1.86"

to which i received:

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience but we are unable to do price match at this moment, please email us at

Did i miss something?
