Okay everyone, PLEASE let others know what happens with your midnight preorder/layaway situation. Bring your cell phone! If you are getting up early, consider checking here before you go out.

worst case scenario:
if there are stores that allow layaway at midnight, there literally might be NO preorders left at 8 a.m. You could be first in line and get nothing! Also, pick a Wal-Mart that is faster/knows what they're doing better then others as if there is a real limited amount of preorders available the speed of the layaway person could come into play.

That's worst case scenario of course, you'll probably be fine =).

edit: of course, this is also assuming that Wal-Mart has a certain amount TOTAL and would potentially presell 50 at one location and 0 at another ... if it's per store, never mind.

I just called my local Walmart looking for info. The lady attempted to transfer me to Electronics, and after five minutes of rapid rings, she picked up again. She said she'd page them to take the call and put me on hold, but after another five minutes of no answer, I just hung up.

Tried calling a store that's a bit further away, and the same exact thing happened.

Are the people in Electronics just so sick of the phone calls that they're not picking up the phone anymore?

Calling Walmart is the most frustrating experience ever. I called them all evening last night and they never pick up. I only got through to 1 last night and they still couldn't patch me over to Electronics. I was finally able to get through to Electronics/Layaway at 2 stores this morning.

When the Wii launched back in 2006 my wife and I were grabbing some late night snacks at Meijer and there was about 20 people lined up in folding lawn chairs or just sitting on the floor. This was probably around 10 pm. Thankfully I had preordered at gamestop.

My rural Ohio store confirmed layaway 9 AM. Now, I'm wondering when to get there.

Any idea on the #'s of U's that will be available for PO? I know the smaller the area, the smaller the # but I'm curious.

Nobody knows this. Including at least one of Walmart and Nintendo.

Over/Under on 20-30 units per store?


If my layaway opens @ 9 I think I'll hot Starbucks @ 7, the crapper @ 7:30, then Wally World @ 7:45.

I only owned a Wii for a week when it hit and was not keen on it and ended up gifting it to a needy family. I am pumped for thus Wii U!

My store said 9am, but I'm going to try to convince an associate to do the layaway as soon as I get there lol. I'll bluff and say I spoke to the manager this morning over the phone and that's what he said. :P

So for the stores that are doing midnight preorders, is it going to be in electronics or at the layaway counter? Because in virtually every single 24-hour walmart, the layaway counter is only open from like 9AM-9 or 10PM.

I stopped by the 24-hour one earlier today, and after literally 20 minutes of standing around while everyone checked with everyone else and looked up stuff on the computer, they came back and said "Yeah, you can reserve a console tomorrow". Me: "So at midnight or at 9AM?". Answer: "No idea." Sigh.

Good luck to all those getting theirs for the first time or just snagging more for whatever your reason. I just called my rural one and no one's there so far. I'm going to hit it up around 7 or so.
