Walmart website glitch sparks shopping frenzy

Walmart website glitch sparks shopping frenzy

It seemed as if Black Friday came early Wednesday when a glitch on Walmart's website reduced the price of thousands of items by as much as 90 percent.

The malfunction has since been resolved, but not before triggering an online shopping frenzy.

At the height of the unintentional sale, shoppers took to social media to share deals, such as $8 computer monitors and $33 treadmills.

A Walmart rep said that the problem was fixed and delivered the bad news to shoppers. There's no word if the retailer plans to honor the extra cheap purchases.
