I went to Walmart to pay off the two systems I had layawayed. I told he I had two layaway orders. They sold me Both systems out right there. Not only that, but they didn't charge me the remaining balance on the second system (I had them on two separate orders under my account.) , which was $180. After I swiped my card, she handed me both systems. I asked if I was good to go, and she said yes. I didn't notice I wasn't charged for the second one until I got home.

Will the second system I have be considered stolen in their computer? Can it be registered for warranty, or anything?


Man i know it sounds sweet to get that 2nd system like that but please consider taking it back. The employee will probably be fired and they will trace it back to your credit card "i work at a bank". THey will charge you for some bullshit misdemeanor taking stolen property or some crap. I wouldnt even risk it.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Ehh if he plays dumb with it I doubt they'd charge him for anything, they'd probably make him pay off the other though.

Hello fellow michigander! Lol :)

I checked my walmart today too, to see if they were doing a midnight launch (just to make sure, you never know) and the disgruntled lady checked and told me "Duh, yeah". So.. rude service.. but no choice but to go there.

see this is the walmart on 14 and van dyke which gets lots of business but no wii u midnight launch, heck i'm not sure how many people preordered them at our super walmart (24hour place) will call tomorrow though to double check if they are or not.. hell i might print that memo out and see if i can get some help without resorting to complain(got work in the morning and dont want to rish loosing this system)

see this is the walmart on 14 and van dyke which gets lots of business, nut no my nintendo fan nerd is going to the gamestop next door to pick it up (one of our friends had a preorder but didnt have enough money, so my nintendo nerd is buying his copy there(to hold onto) and the one he layawayed at the walmart heck i'm not sure how many people preordered them at our super walmart (24hour place) will call tomorrow though to double check if they are or not.. hell i might print that memo out and see if i can get some help without resorting to complain(got work in the morning and dont want to rish loosing this system)


good luck, most of the people I find here are either uninformed and refuse to help or are informed and won't help.

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

has nintendo ever gave a reason why they release their stuff on sunday? i could understand why they would do it in japan seeing sunday is really the only day people their have off of work and it's like a holiday every week, but not sure why it's the same day in u.s.

to be honest it's possible i have worked in retail for years and have seen it happen by mistake in my store. If store by mistake scans on the upc it will show up in the system the barcode on systems are the only things dif. seeing he would have a legit recipt showing his purchase they might take the one from newegg

each system has a unique serial number and any register worth a dam will require a serial scan and a upc scan

As long as the game is sealed they dont care they WILL ask for your drivers license number though to track you how many times u do it etc. I did this always back in the day and it still works. If the game is opened they wont help at all.

My order from Target that I placed yesterday (white system w/mario) shipped! When I was checking out I chose the express Sunday delivery however my tracking states Tuesday delivery,will they refund my shipping?

They should, or you can always call your credit card company and dispute the expressing shipping charge and they will most certainly give it back to you.

I'm thinking I will go back sometime tomorrow and talk to someone. Like I said, I had both systems at home before I even noticed it. Still, I can imagine it being kinda funny to walk into the store with the item that people are going to be lined up for, in hand. Actually... it worries me that they might just take it away because I was stupid enough to bring a console back in that is unreleased, and was handed to me being only half way paid off.
