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.


Nice.
Dongs.

Damn it.

All 4 Walmarts, minus one that kinda knew what was up.

The last one told me the Wii U would be available for Pre order on Nov 13, co signed by his manager.

I'm done.

Did you just go to electronics or customer service? I think layaway is closed for most 24/7 stores.

I'm still waiting inside my Walmart.. The guy in Electronics can't find the damn UPC in the system.. I need some kind of print out from them in order to process it for layaway. Hopefully it drops into the system some time before 9am.. Until then I'm going to continue to sit here and have suicidal thoughts lol

Well things turned out successful for me. Went there at about 11:45, went straight to electronics and there was a little confusion at first before the guy helping me said that he had to take me back to layaway (which was closed but he was nice enough to do the transaction for me anyways) to process the transaction at 12:01. There was a black binder with all the info in it back there. He said they only had them for the first 9 people (which confirmed the info they gave me over the phone) needless to say, I was the ONLY person there and got it rang up, paid for, and a reciept about as tall as I am lol

That happened with mine. Eventually the manager remembered that when entering a UPC/item number into the computer manually for layaway, that she had to leave off the last 6 numbers, or it would keep showing as item unavailable. At least that's the reason she told me. It appeared to work just fine when she left those last numbers off.

Got mine! Just came back from wal-mart and at first no one knew what I was talking about.. walked back to electronics, no one was there, so went up to register and asked a cashier (saying my brother got one at a different walmart) so she asked on her walkie talkie and said someone was trying to figure it out. So she sent me back to electronics and the guy there almost sent me away saying he had no clue what I was talking about.. luckily there was someone there with me that said he called earlier and was told they were doing the preorder.. so the guy went back and then sent us to layaway.. which took 20minutes for them to figure out how to do, but they finally did it and got the 2 Wii's preordered.. :) This was in southern california!

I just tried phone-calling three 24-hour Walmarts within a 50-mile radius of my home, but none of them picked up. My nearest Walmart is 10 miles away, and I don't want to drive 20+ miles (round trip distance) only to return empty-handed. Is there a way I could contact a store and find out if they're still taking preorders before I make the trip?

Thanks.

Just show up at 9am at any Walmart in the Layaway/Store Pick-up area in the back and you'll be fine. You don't have to call and confirm anything. Print out and bring the memo just in case.

My problem was this hoarder took all of them including my one copy as I helped her.

Success at Monona Wal-Mart near Madison, WI.

We went at 4 a.m. because we had been told on the phone pre-orders would start at 9 a.m.

They had started at midnight, though, and we were consoles 13, 14, 15, and 16. The layaway lady said we could pick them up at 12:01 a.m. on November 18.

For each of us it was about $79 down for two consoles. We had to leave at least a penny on our total order, not one for each console.

Happy Hunting!

Ordered 2 deluxe consoles from Walmart in NOVA. They already had a few layaway preorders iit seemed like. Went around 4am and the process was no sweat - they knew exactly what was going on.

Got to my local Walmart at 4 because I thought they opened at 5 but they do not actually open until 6. Only me and one other couple were there. My Walmart actually had a layaway employee come in early at 6 this morning just for this so I guess they were expecting a turnout also. I got my two ordered no problem. I thought they were going to charge the $5 fee per unit but it was only one fee for both.

This is in Salem, NH btw.

Just checked out 2 Walmarts. One couldn't find anyone who knew anything about it and the other took about 15 minutes to tell me 9am.

Man, Walmart. lol. That sounds kind of creepy actually. Maybe ask the janitor if there is someone you can talk to?

I'm at the 24 hour one I go to, and it's dead. The person I asked doesn't know about the preorders. Just waiting around for someone that actually works in the electronics section.

I did the exact same thing. It was weird not seeing people all over the damn store. They told me 9am as well. The lady at customer service (pretty cute ;)) gave my the ad. She then radioed for the girl in electronics. No where as attractive as the previous lady. She then told me that layaway opens at 9 so I'm heading there then. Saw a few other Cag's/(that site)/eBay there as well. Good luck guys/gals.

Got to mine at 6:30 and no one was there. McD's wasn't open yet so ran home to eat some breakfast. Going to head back in a few minutes and camp out the last 2 hours.
