Not that I shop regularly at Walmart, but I still had no idea they even offered downloads...

Bad marketing maybe?

great service that was overlooked.. I used it all the time because you could get the cheapest prices from their download servers. some songs were $0.55 . too bad...

Pretty much this. I wonder how much of their customers even knew it was an option?

Well, that's because they were trying to get more dominating position. If they were to succeed, I am more or less sure that they would have the same prices (or just a bit lower) as iTunes.

In the 8 years it's been around I never even knew it existed until now. I don't exactly live under a rock either but jeez.

I remember seeing it when it first came out, but like most of you, I had no idea they still offered it, and I browse their website fairly often.

Who wants to pay more than 50¢ per song anyways? Most CD's are like $7 or less anymore anyways. Lemme guess, you all also didnt know that walmart has a streaming video service also? Its called VUDU. Its also a bit overpriced compared to redbox

Yup used to use Walmart music because it was the cheapest and you can download the music to your HDD. What kind of music you buy today? Crap, thats what.
Also you can listen to just about any song for free now a days.

Try Rhapsody instead.

I work at walmart, and even internaly they never promoted this service much at all. It had been planned at one time to have a kiosk set up where people could bring in their MP3 player and download right in store, or make a custom CD. That never materialized though. But this like our post-paid cell phone section is never advertised. (The part I work in.)
