There are multiple posts on different outlets and at least one (un)official? tweet from Walmart stating that the pre orders were not meant to go live.
Of course that doesn't mean that they'll cancel all of them. https://mobile.twitt...3681/frame.html


they will probably honor them and put them back up again

I followed up on this and chatted with a Walmart rep concerning the status of my pre-order after seeing this response on twitter. Rep I spoke with said my order was processed and will be honored. I will post a picture of my chat log. Make what you will of it, I'm sure some people will scream SALTY TROLLS! and FAKE NEWS! This whole issue seems to have people really on edge.

From what I can tell the actual cancellations are not that wide spread.

They probably aren't. I mean, all I saw are people on SD that actually complained about cancellations, and these people seemed to place their orders at least 20 minutes after the deal went live. That is a really, really long time when it comes to rare items like this.

 

I was surprised that the deal didn't die after 10 minutes.

Mine is canceled too.  We are all getting the same email:

 

Hi [UNAPPRECIATED CUSTOMER], 

Thank you for your interest in the Super Nintendo Entertainment System – Classic Edition. As you are aware, this is a highly sought after console that will launch later this fall. 

Unfortunately, due to a technical glitch, the Super Nintendo Classic Edition was mistakenly made available last Friday evening ahead of the official release date. We, regrettably, will have to cancel this item on your order. We know that this is incredibly disappointing to you, and we’re truly sorry for this mistake. 

In regards to the cancellation of this item, if you paid by credit card, your card has not been charged. Any authorization holds placed on your account will automatically expire in accordance with the card issuer's policy. If you paid through PayPal or with a gift card, your payment will be refunded when the order is cancelled. 

The official launch date for this item is 9/29, please check the product page on Walmart.com prior to that date for any updates. 

I do hope you’ll give us another chance to earn back your business. 

Warm regards, 
Deserie Dulaney 
Sr. Director Customer Care 
Walmart.com

Canceled here too. Surprised no gift card. This was a major Fuck up. They've automatically tossed me gift cards for much more trivial cancellations. I actually used prior cancellation gift cards to pay for this order :P

Worst comes to worst you can always buy one from one of those dudes on ebay who is selling 30 of em and say it arrived damage and ask for a partial refund. Boom... SNES Classic at retail price!

 

Jk... don't do that.

Orders are being canceled because of the amount of salty trolls contacting Walmart via phone and website about missing out on the pre-orders complaining that many ordered more than one. This is utterly ridiculous. For once I get a pre-order in fair and square and it gets canceled.

 

The worst part is the next time they open Pre-orders for this I will most likely not be home or be asleep as it happens like always.

Really? I guess you missed the outcry from all the people who missed out on the pre-orders to the point where people were contacting Walmart left and right bombarding them with the old, its not fair people ordered more than one routine. Literally its been all over social media.

 

And yes I am Salty because I pre-ordered it on time fair and square, unlike the NES Classic. But hey my salt is not as substantial as most because my Amazon Germany SNES Classic Pre-order is still good. So I am still getting one regardless of Walmart being aholes.

I have to say, as much as this blows, I'm really not surprised. I've tried on a few occasions to get something rare or collectible from Walmart. Every time, I mean every time, they screwed me over. So I really don't put much into them. Figured something like this would happen.

I am shocked they didn't shove some free money our way to compensate and to try and get back some of that 80-160 dollars they lost per person. That's poor business right there.

I didn't miss all those crybabies on SD that got in on it late and threw virtual tantrum, if that's what you meant. I'm asking for the proof about what you said, that all those people chewing Walmart out led to them cancelling (most likely all) preorders at this point. Like, is it really that hard to believe that a legitimate technical difficulty could be the real cause here?

 

Also, you still have your preorder from Amazon Germany. Why are you even salty lol? If anything, you are the real hypocrite here for placing the order with Walmart when you already have a guaranteed preorder from Europe.
