Many Walmart stores have gone to nearly all self checkouts.
The Wackys are meant for the checkout lanes because if they are put in any other part of the store, they will be opened as I am seeing more of that at Targets.
I think a small percentage of Walmarts will carry Wackys, it doesn't make sense to make a production run for a store and it only be available in a small percentage of its stores.


I have only seen Series 3 at one Walmart so far.  The issue is there are no new mini's exclusive to the WalMart Cups other than the Blue Chase Mini's. Series 2 had exclusive regular mini's.  Who wants to buy a bunch of cups with all base repeats just to try to score a Chase?  Not many people. You are better off buying the chase on Ebay once they get cheaper IMO.

Agreed. Dr. Popper has come down from almost $100 to about $25-30. Canada Dry Fink remains ridiculously high.....I am NOT paying $100 for 50 cents worth of plastic. Wasn't that what Gilligan said? "I'm not gonna dress up like a girl, and you can't make me! You can't make me! You can't make me!" (Cut to scene of Gilligan dressed up like a girl.)

Trying to get the list of walmart toppers for series 3 to be able to score the chase minis.  I will post if I get the intel.

Thanks!  I'm also curious if the toppers tend to be the same as the ones at Target or different.  At this point, though, I'd just be happy to find some cups at Walmart in the first place.

A friend of mine on FB has mentioned he has seen some with blue colored lids at top. Has anyone on here seen any?

I went on a 3 1/2 hour road trip today to visit my brother and had some interesting fines. I stopped at two Walmarts in southern Wisconsin/Northern Illinois. Of the 8 cups I bought, six of them had rares inside. One had both a red and a blue STP (Ale was the topper).  I stopped at two Walmarts in central Illinois and neither had series 3 cups (only a fair number of series 2 cups).  I hope to hit a couple more on my return home Sunday. I値l let you know what I find out.

Very interesting!   Thanks for the info.

Great odds!!  Out of curiosity, what was the sticker in the cup with Ale?

Interestingly, the sticker in the cup with ale was not ale. I don稚 recall what it was. I致e heard Ale is a tough sticker and, luckily, I actually got an Ale sticker in a different cup, but I don稚 remember what the topper was.

None were in Milwaukee. They were in a Beloit and Rockford Illinois. I am heading to new Berlin next Saturday, and may take a look at some of the stores between Madison and new Berlin then. I知 also driving down to Chicago on Friday, so I guess I値l have more opportunities to hit some stores. I really need to watch this obsession >( >(

Thx! I'm not a completist on these. Just want 1 or 2 blue sparkle rares in the collection.
I haven't seen any more fuggedaboutit ultra rare StarKists on eBay, but that one is far from my reach anyways.
Just curious who was able to get one here so far.

I was on the road Easter Monday and stopped by a Walmart in Siler City, NC.   No Series 3, and the aisles were sparse with Series 2, and one aisle even had Series 1 cups.   I bought one Minute Mud and one Ebayer topper for posterity.    8)

I bought a Dull red sparkle mini on Fleabay. It shipped Thursday from Pottstown, PA and so far in 5.5 days (one was Easter) it has gone to Philadelphia and Lancaster. Great job, USPS! At this rate i will have it by Christmas! Fleabay claims it will arrive in Illinois tomorrow..maybe Lancaster has a teleporter.

I posted in the trading forum that I need a red sparkle Dull pineapple.

I have several blue sparkle rares to trade, and I'm willing to do a 2 for 1 trade.
