A recent expansion of Wal-Mart’s price-matching policy to include Amazon has opened the door to PS4 prices as low as $90 thanks to a string of fake ads brandished by customers.
Twitter and Reddit users have been posting receipts for PS4s at Wal-Mart sold for less than $100 since the retail giant announced the expanded price matching policy on Nov. 13, which covers select online retailers. Others have surfaced showing Xbox One sales for around the same price.

A Wal-Mart employee told Business Insider the price match must be for a specific item, limited to one per household and is left at the discretion of a store manager.
CNBC reports that tweets in recent days suggest the retailer is starting to catch on.
