Obviously, Walmart Doesn’t Want You To Drink 12 Budweiser Margaritas

If one can of Budweiser’s malt beverage margarita-like substance costs one dollar, how much should twelve cans cost? That’s right…$12.97. Wait, what? If this math sounds a little off to you, apparently you don’t work at Matthew’s local Walmart.


“Cans are one dollar a piece. Buy a twelve-pack and pay ninety-seven cents more,” he wrote when sending in this photo. “I don’t want Walmart turning into Target.”

The only way this would make sense if if the cans in the upper racks were a different size, but both appear to be eight-ounce cans.
