Just checked my orders again.

 

Nothing else has been cancelled yet and still sits in processing.

Truth be told games wise it wasn't that great a deal, I'll get round to playing Diablo 3 and BF4 soonish but I can almost guarantee M&L Dream Team will be less that $18 somewhere before I get round to playing it.
 
It was more the electronics that made this deal.


Yup. As soon as I started seeing the Electronics "deals", I knew there was no way. I knew Walmart.com was supposed to be starting some crazy sale prices soon, and $18 for a $30 new release 3DS title (Regular Show) seemed pretty 'crazy', but still within the realm of possibilities - I didn't suspect much. Then, I came by CAG and saw the other deals... I knew there was no way... so, I gave up then. :D

Although, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't tempted by the 55" 3D LG TV that was in-stock nearby... :D

And the anime! It was like $11 for "complete series" blurays.

 

Anyway.. all 3 of my complete series animes were cancelled. All that is left is the $3 GTA V guide (one order), and the Mass Effect Trilogy (separate order). I'm not very hopeful, but it was worth a try.

I just looked at my bank statement and last night it would show the initial charge (withdrawal) and then the refund (deposit).

 

Now both have fallen off completely but the money is still there.

 

So not really bothered by it just find it odd they fell off entirely.

Well I for one am satisfied with how Wal-Mar t handled this, I got my apology email and a $10 credit to make amends.  It's not a TV or sound system but, short of honoring deals we knew they wouldn't, this is the next best thing.

 

Now I just wish my local store would try to make amends like this whenever they screwed up.

Come on dude. How is walmart going to get stuff back once it leaves the stores?

This is something they can rectify and they are. Stop being so salty.

Not being salty. Xerox, the EBT processor for Walmart, has a documented process for retailers to follow when there is an EBT outage. Walmart chose, for whatever reason, to not follow that procedure.

How is someone coming to checkout with multiple grocery carts filled to the top not a huge warning sign that something is wrong?

As I mentioned in my post, I never expected Walmart to honor those orders from yesterday.

So Walmart stops them from checking out? Press would have a field day.

I can see the headlines now: Walmart discriminates against lower income customers. Walmart refuses to let ebt users purchase items because there is no way in hell poor ass people like that could be buying shopping carts worth of items.

Walmart execs say miscommunication and tech glitch responsible. Want to reiterate this was not racially or economically motivated. More at 11. Also, how breathing could be killing you.

Dude, shelves were cleared out. Empty. Of course they should have stopped them from checking out. "Sorry, EBT isn't working right now. Come back later." Simple.

Yeah I totally get that. It's logical. But Walmart isn't logical, they weigh everything against pr and future profits.

I mean Fuck em. I'm not defending them. I just understand why they would do it.

Wow, my 27" ASUS monitors actually shipped, they're supposed to be arriving tonight. Nvidia 680 got cancelled, Razer Deathadder and the other 45" TV were "delayed", and haven't heard anything about the other games I ordered. Still, I'm happy with just the monitors going through, and definitely with the stuff I picked up instore.

So I also got the cancellation email from Walmart last night.  As of last night, I had two separate orders.  One was for the Art of Final Fantasy  artbook and another was for the Vizio Soundbar 5.1 Surround system.  As of this morning, the Final Fantasy artbook (which I got for $15 - MSRP at $60) changed from "processing" to "shipped," with a tracking number and everything.  So that was nice.  

 

However, the Vizio soundbar order (which I was able to grab for $80 - MSRP at $300) still says "processing."  My guess is that this item will be cancelled, but since the order still seems to be alive, I'm still crossing my fingers!

Lucky for you.  I had the artbook, the hyrule historia, and the soundbar all in one order.  They canceled the soundbar last night and the 2 artbooks this morning.

My stepmom ordered 4 of the John Deere power wheel type vehicles that were listed at $29.97 (retail $269-$299) for her and coworkers.

Her other coworkers stumbled onto this earlier during the overnight shift. She said her department ordered about 20 of these total. Within 5 minutes of her order being placed the site went down.

She doesn't expect them to ship but thought it was worth a try.

I would have loved to get a TV.  They went out of stock too fast for me to get to them...

 

I did get (and picked up last night after I got off work) Saints Row 4, Battlefield 4, and Diablo 3.  I'm good with that.

 

But I really would have loved to get a TV.  Like a 75 inch one... one so big I would have struggled to find the wall space for it...  :)

They canceled my banjo. ;_;

 

My monitors, headphones, and TV are in limbo, but I think they're about to join Blockbuster in that great big bargain bin in the sky.

I got in on the action a little later than I wanted to but I did manage to score a $18.03 Battlefield 4 for 360 with in store pick up. No hassle.

I had the day off and I am enjoying the game. I plan to trade up for next gen. Twas a good day.


FYI your only trade up options are AZ & BB as you didn't buy the 360 BF 4 from GS.

I work at Walmart and I was talking to my supervisor yesterday when I was picking up BF4...I told her about the glitch. And she said a glitch happened the night before (so Monday night) with laptops being $100, and there were about 20 site to store orders of laptops there Tuesday morning
