Just got back from the 24 hour Walmart. The layaway dept is closed for the evening and the customer service rep said to come back at 9am Sunday morning.


Thanks man. I was getting to throw on some clothes; hop in the Mazda, and go. Zoom zoom! I'll be there then. Thanks again.

I wonder, if they are doing this, can they hold it for you all they way up into the holidays?

Would be a nice Christmas Present for the fam.

I'm the only person at this Walmart right now. Layaway is closed until 9am. A couple came in after me and we were trying to hustle the customer service rep to let us preorder but no bite.. They do know about the Wii U, but no one here really knows the process though. They need to get some kind of card, possibly something with the SKU from Electronics in order to put it on layaway at the customer service desk, but Electronics rep can't find the SKU in the system.

Just like I thought.
I called today and they said no Layaway is closed tonight.
I called at midnight and the phone woman said "Layaway is closed now".
I asked for manager, she said "Yes, they are taking preorders right now. Come in."

It was about $42 after the $5 fee. You can do two preorders as far as I know.

If they can't find something within the next 8 1/2 hours (would it be that much of a surprise?), try giving them these numbers:
UPC 45496880866
Item 550924127
As soon as Raul Ibanez hits a walk-off, I'll head over to mine and see if I have better luck.

Last thing then I'm done for the morning. This thread reminds of the HP Touchpad fiasco from last year. Good times. I didn't get sleep that whole weekend. Looks it's going to be the same thing this time around...

Same results as you, expect the last guy told me at 10 am, but I know he meant 9 am.


I wonder, they can hold this out for you until December right?

Here in MN the local one (that is brand new) had no idea what I was talking about. I actually went to the store and talked to people. I guess I'll go in again early morning, otherwise I'll have to wait until about 1PM.

It lasts however long layaways last. My store was very organized and in the know. Had all the sheets and stuff out and ready.

Where was this at? I'm over in Brooklyn Center and I'm pretty sure I'll be going to the Walmart over here at 9am to see what's up. If they have the ads out they should at least be able to get a manager to tell them what to do.

Success! First preorder at the store, too. Apparently the assistant manager on duty first learned of the preorders when I called earlier, then proceeded to look up the memo and print it out for his own reference. That's far more initiative than I expect most Walmart employees to take, so I'm quite impressed.

Lol Yankees lost and also lost Jeter.. Are you going to an NJ Walmart? I'm at Secaucus if you wanna hang out.. I'm the only person here. I'm gonna camp layaway and give them the UPC code at 7 or 8 because that's when customer service (which is the same area) opens. An associate said I can at least let them know ahead of time so they can get ready for it.

I got my preorders at my Walmart.
The memo was printed and taped to the layaway countertop.
She put the receipt and package label in a Wii U folder.
It was 10% + tax + $5.
She couldn't tell how many were preallocated.

I'm kind of worried the manager didn't put my receipt inside a Wii U folder because he didn't seem to know much about it. What if he didn't do it? Will another employee see the receipt and put in the folder? I just don't want to get fucked.

Got one in Kennewick, Wa. No one was in line, and employees knew nothing about it until I showed them the memo. It took like 15 minutes, but was pretty simple.
