Crap. My order from last night was cancelled. Tried another one today at a different store, and it's also just now been cancelled. WTF is wrong with Wal-Mart?
I bet if I go to a store it will be right there. Just the employees are too lazy to look. Is this a new thing for Wal-Mart? I've done site-to-store before, but that usually means the item gets SHIPPED to the store (for free) for me to go in to pick up. I was not aware in the past of them having something immediately available for pick-up. So far it seems like a major fail though.
When this initially got rolled-out on us last year it was a separate option on the site (with its own little icon) called "Pickup Today", (our in-store program still calls it that on our screens) what possessed them to lump it all together as "Site-to-Store," I don't know. Probably blame the cretins that regularly shop WM and can't wrap their head around too many different terms at once though.
On the brightside though, if the only option was Site-to-Store or Ship-to-Home then there would have been NO option to get it since, as you said StS comes directly from the warehouses and this had been sold out online a lot sooner than it is/was available for pickup at the stores. I guess.
