Walmart employee debunks long-believed store hoax on TikTok

A Walmart discount hack has been going viral on TikTok since 2020 — and it's totally fake. According to the ongoing hoax, which was most recently (and most widely) shared by user @iammittalpatel, . there's a four-digit code above the Walmart front entrance doors that customers can use as a discount code at self-checkout. A handful of commenters immediately pointed out that the four-digit number around the entrance is simply the store number. The most conclusive evidence that the "hack" was fake came from @shantellmurphy, who said she is a Walmart employee. While using self-checkout, she recorded all the options that came up, but there was nowhere to enter any sort of discount code
