The last time I tried Target, I was getting those security errors saying too many redirects or something like that. Their app is good though. Chrome is just odd that way at times though, as old IE versions are getting to be less and less supported.

I wish I knew how you were being able to use it successfully. I can use Amazon, Target, and a lot of others better than I can use Walmart.

Well, did not do shopping on target site so cannot speak to that. But I just
don't see nothing to sue for here with Walmart! I just don't have enough
problems with the site to talk about. There is lots of other sites I have a
much bigger problem with. Like Walgreens and CVS . As well as parts of
Amazon . Best buy site can be a challenge as well and the list goes on. To
me Walmart is a breeze up against these sites.JMT!

Here's what I don't understand. A few years ago, the NFB made a big stink
because the Target.com site was allegedly not accessible. So they
successfully sued Target to force them to make their site more screen reader
friendly. Now, some blind consumers are reporting similar problems with the
Walmart.com site. Is the NFB planning to sue Walmart now over the same
issue? After all, Walmart is the world's largest retailer, not some Mickey
Mouse start-up, so it would seem to me that the blindness advocacy
organizations have a responsibility to ensure that their site is screen
reader friendly, right?

Hmm, don't have a problem but I think I use the mobile site. But yes
sometimes it sort of get hung up but usually waiting moment or refreshing
jaws does the trick. But sometime it does have a little challenge but
nothing I cannot deal with.

I have trouble navigating the Walmart site. It hangs up all of the time and
it gets very frustrating. I usually end up using the app on my iDevice, but
even that is very buggy. I am using Jaws 15 with the newest version of
Firefox. I even have issues using the site with Internet Explorer. I use to
be able to use it, and did so all of the time, but now, it gets on my last
nerve trying to look around to find things I need.

If you buy 50 bucks it is free shipping to your home. If you ship to a
Walmart store it is free as well.

Is the shipping expensive from Wal-Mart? I have ordered from Drugstore.com
in the past myself.

You can purchase canned goods from wal-mart.com & have them delivered to
your home. We order all of our household goods & nonperishable foods from
Wal-Mart & have it delivered. For us it is cheaper & more convient to have
things delivered. It cost $15 one way to get to Wal-Mart. We take the bus to
the grocery to get meats. We bring the meats home in large backpacks. It
costs $6 to get a cab to the closest grocery. Drugstore.com is another good
website to order grocery goods from.

Amazon.com sells Campbells and Progresso soups by the case at very
reasonable prices, about $22 to $24 a case, which contains 12 cans. This
works out to about $2 or less per can, which is actually less than I would
pay at my local supermarket when they are not on sale, which is most of the
time. And Amazon has varieties of these soups that you can't find in most
supermarkets, which usually only sell your standard chicken noodle, tomato,
vegetable and minestrone soups. Of course, if your total is at least $35,
you get free shipping. This is the only way I buy soup now. I can try
delicious and exotic flavors that I never knew existed, and nothing is
easier to prepare. Just pop the tab on the can, empty the contents into a
soup bowl and microwave on high for 3 minutes, and you have a simple, quick
and tasty lunch.

Not really considering I would have had to pay a cab to go there,
which is
$12 there and $12 back. Shipping was much cheaper than me paying $24
just to go get the stuff at the store.

Do you live near a Dollar Tree? Call their 800 number and see if when
you order, if you can have items delivered to that store to save on
shipping. I have not done this, I had the items shipped to me, but it
is worth finding out what shipping options are available.

Libby's is a good brand. That's how I do some of my hsopping as it is
cheaper than the regular grocery store. Wow, I didn't know you could
have them ship. I go to them with a friend. I bet shipping would be a
bunch, isn't it?

Have you checked out the Dollar Tree? Libby's 14.5 ounce green beans
are 79 cents a can, but you have to buy a case which is 12 cans, so
the cost would be $9.48. Libby's is the only brand they sell, but it
is at
least an option.

I love the Dollar Tree, I was able to put together a 50th birthday
party for someone by purchasing all of the necessary items from them.
I am not sure if they just ship to the United States or not. The site
address is:
https://www.dollartree.com/

HI
Amazon sells canned goods by the case. Very expensive! 28-ounce cans
of tomatoes, for example are $3.00 a piece.
