Well - based on experience and feedback elsewhere in the thread, it certainly does happen. Not always.

One thing I've noticed on both Amazon and Walmart: caveat emptor is in full force with respect to pricing. Some items - often the same item, can vary in price tremendously. The absurdly high prices are (as I remember) always third party vendors. Looking for a quick buck.

A place I also find a useful online ordering source for general merchandise: Target.com .
