When did you guys order? I ordered clear back on Wednesday, and I've long since assumed Kmart just randomly decided not to put the order through, and not to bother telling me.


I ordered Metro and AvP at about the same time, but separate orders. Metro turned up the next day but AvP hasn't been shipped out or anything. I got email confirmations for both so it seems a bit hit and miss.

I ordered this past Saturday. I'm not sure what is going on exactly. I printed off the order numbers and my email is correct so I do not see any reason why there has been no email confirmation. My card has already been charged, so I hope to see something from KMart soon.

Did everyone who ordered Bayonetta for Xbox 360 receive the wall scroll?

I ordered Bayonetta for the Xbox 360 Tuesday night and my order just showed up. It did, indeed, have the wallscroll with it. If you ordered it early, there's a fair chance you'll receive it too.8-)

has anyone tried buying these games at K-Mart for the $30 price tag and then returning them at Wal-Mart for a $60-per-title refund?

Innocent until proven guilty. If paying with cash...fat chance of finding any proof. But, it looks like Wal-Mart only offers cash refunds if it is under $25...store credit otherwise.

Do you know if the Order Details page ever got updated on the order you received? I got in a FFXIII order on Friday, and got the confirmation, but kind of expected to see some sort of status information on the order but there isn't any.

Just got an email from SHC. He sent me a tracking code so hopefull it gets sent soon. I tried to track it but it might be too soon for it to show up. Thanks for the great work SHC!

I did not get a email confirmation from K-Mart so it hopefully everyone else who did not get one will also get the order sent out from K-Mart. Great time for us gamers with sales like this from K-Mart.

It depends how far authorities are willing to go to catch him. It can't be that difficult to find his real name and location with help from this forum's admins and cross reference it with all the returns-with-no-receipts for a specific game at the local WM locations. Once those records are found, they can cross reference the date and time for the returns with footage from their security cameras to obtain further proof with a pic and video of the crime in action. If I remember correctly, returns with no receipt usually require a photo ID, usually a driver's license, with the person's current address. That can be used to find where he or she lives. Using that and a little more info, I'm sure they can find out when and where the title(s) were purchased at KMart. From there, it can't be too difficult for lawyers to establish a connection. Sadly, WM likely won't pursue people like that because it was cost them too much time and money. Just saying.

edit: Wished I jumped on this deal sooner. I wanted FFXIII, but they were sold out at my location. :(

No, but if a person goes in and returns a game here or there without a receipt they won't. Most people just say they got it as a gift and they already have it. Then Walmart gives them instore credit. The person might tip them off if he makes a big deal about wanting cash, but a person just receiving the store credit to use in their store isn't going to tip them off. Because chances are they'll sell the game again, especially if it's a relatively new title.

It's still fraud, but anyone who's going to try it with like 10 of the same copies deserves to get in trouble. But the small time person who only does one copy like once a year isn't going to get in trouble. It's just a dishonest thing to do.

Try to get a rain check although it is a bit YMMV on whether they'll give you one or not. Bring in a print out of SHC-Gamer's blog to increase your chances!

Got my bayonetta (ps3) with scroll today which I ordered last week so I am hoping everyone gets there's as well.

On a side note: I also ordered FFXIII for my brother last week friday and did not received shipping info. I emailed them early today as I am concerned and they responded back with ups tracking and should be here tomorrow. You should try emailing kmart.

Thanks SHC!

Just got back from my local K-Mart with a copy of FFXIII (360) in tow. The clerk had trouble getting the case open, but that was the biggest issue of the trip. They had a few copies left, so I don't think a lot of people in my area know about this sale. :P

If KMart keeps this up, I'd much rather give THEM my money than Best Buy - the clerks are clueless, but they are very courteous.

Best Buy is just evil, IMHO, YMMV.

How did it take for them to get back to you? I'll probably email them myself since I still haven't received an email confirmation for FFXIII or Bayonetta for PS3.

Why are there two listings for PS3 MW2 with the discount only being applied to the one that's out of stock? I've been trying to get in on this deal but between asshat managers and a broken website, Kmart is really making it difficult.
