We thought we’d never find anything wrong with Walmart’s website, but there’s a first time for everything! Today we’re featuring an outtake on the mega retailer, because we noticed some issues with their filters and refinements that could use improvement.

Sandro: Easy on the Eyes, Hard on the Mind.

The shiny shirt under the vest at the bottom right caught my eye. Where my eyes go, my mouse goes but sadly I do not find what I want.

Costco, there’s still room for improvement


Costco recently updated their website and added some new features to make it “easier to browse” their site. Of course, I had to check out the new and see if it passed the ECommerce Outtakes test. What I found was that although the new features and navigation are nice, there are still some organizational […]

Payless, make the most of BOGO


There’s nothing like a “buy one, get one” sale, especially from the brand that practically coined the term BOGO: Payless. I was shopping around on their site, and I was actually surprised to find that the brand doesn’t do as much as it could to promote the deal it’s famous for. My first issue with […]

evo, something’s wrong with your links!


It’s barely fall, and I’m already thinking about winter. Call me crazy, but I love snow!  I wanted to look at some winter sports gear, so I decided to head over to evo’s website. When I accidentally typed into my search bar instead of my navigation bar, things got weird. Evo had a link in […]
