The dream of the 90s 10s is alive in Portland Dellandia! Shipping in 1-2 weeks is the brand new 30-inch OLED Dell Ultrasharp UP3017Q for $3500. Image a Samsung Galaxy S8 screen but 30-inches and without Samsung Experience TouchWiz 🙂 This has 3840 x 2160 at 60 Hz resolution, DCI-P3 97.5%, Adobe RGB 100%, and various connectors including USB Type C but not Type A.

New Walmart feature rolling out: Store Pickup discount on select items

Starting April 19 (2017) Walmart will begin rolling out a new feature, if you select store pickup for a purchase, you may be able to get a small discount on the purchase price. In other words, they are paying you to do the delivery to yourself 🙂 This feature will slowly ramp up, they are planning to include 1 million items by the end of June. As usual, YMMV depending on product availability and location. This will be offered on the 48 contiguous US States.

I am guessing this is a feature that got inspired by the Jet team, which has all kids of nickle-dimer discounts on the Jet website (pay less if you forgo returns, pay less if you pay with debit card, pay less if you buy in quantity, etc). I don’t know if the other Jet features will make it to Walmart, but for now, if you are fond of store pickup, you may be able to save!

PS: if you are a Prime member, and you pay with either the Amazon Chase VISA or the Amazon Store Credit card, you get 5% back on your purchases as cashback or a statement credit. In this case, 5% of this is $65, not a small amount!

PS2: if you have an Amazon Store credit card, you may be offered a 12-month 0% APR financing promotion as long as you pay it in full in 12 months. The financing offer cannot be combined with the 5% statement credit, so you have to pick one or the other. The shopping cart will guide you through it if eligible.
