How would that help... Isn't the whole point that they raised the prices online?

Oh.. I assumed they wouldn't offer a pickup discount on these items because they want to get customers to buy these items in the store and not online...

We'll have to see how it plays out but I did just look up some diaper rash cream (not for me) and it was more online than in the store and I don't think it showed a p/u discount.

I use diaper rash cream for many off label purposes.  Nothing to be embarrased about ;D

lol. It was just the timing of it. I had a coupon to use at Target and wanted to compare Up and Up to Equate in pricing and saw one, of many, price changes where it says explicitly that it's less in store.

So then does that mean the pickup discount goes away or Walmart has to continue w/ it to compete against Amazon?
