For the POAS Addicts

You guys may know about this already, but I was at wal-mart last week to pick up some tests and they have a test there for .88 cents. I couldn't figure out what the sensitivity of it is, but I tested on 12 and 14 dpo with an answer and on 11 dpo with the 88 cent test and it had a very comparable line!

Just wanted to pass it on Smile

hmmm I wonder if it's in their Canadian stores, too...probably not. I will look into it, thanks!

I'd be interested to know! I live in the hometown for Walmart and Sams club, so often times they test products in our stores before they go out to other stores. However I want to say that someone else commented on the 88 cent tests at their Walmart also.

I looked and didn't see any, but Dollar Trees have been popping up around my city and they're only $1.25 per test. I'll still take that over a $13 FRER!

We've had $1 tests at Dollarama for years now! Do you have a Dollarama near you?

LOL, we do, but I'm not sure if I've been in one since we started TTC so it was never something I looked for. Dollar Tree is the closest $ store to my house and right next to the grocery store, so I don't usually go to any other one! Got some weird looks from a clerk when I got to the cash and bought 10 tests and a pack of gum. The only thing I don't like about be tests they sell is how over packaged they are.

We have them here too. I found them a few weeks ago but they are only on the checkout aisles not with the other pg tests.

the 88 cent ones are 5ml i think, compared to 20/25....i don't know if i have that right, but i tested on one tuesday AM and there was barely a line, tested again that night and got a positive. I tested on a internet cheapie and a dreaded blue dye and both were STARK white....so the walmart ones are pretty sensitive... i got my very first faint BFP 5dp5dt
