Yes, you did flex about yours. Your "$4500???? ooooh" comment was an obvious "That's all?!?!?" dig. Insinuating that you have a superior line of credit there or elsewhere. Now you're trying to play the innocent.

It was about making a point with Walmart, not about the amount of credit I had. Why I posted the specific number I really don't know. Just what I did at the time of the post. Didn't think anyone would take some weirdo issue with it. But obviously you feel the need to be a complete dick for zero reason about it. Clap clap. Nothing more to say on the matter. Enjoy your day. :)

My point is line of credit is nothing to brag about at all. It had nothing to do with how big or small it is.

You didn’t get your code so you reacted like a Karen: whaaaaat? I spend thousands of dollars at (insert retailer)!! I’m taking my business somewhere else! Can I speak to the manager?

People do that shit all the time on cag and slickdeals. Nobody gaf about how much money you spent with a company. Because the insinuation is that you’re gonna stop spending with that company. And no company gives a rats ass about you.

Dude, nobody cared about the credit line comment in the first place and damn sure nobody cares about this being dragged on.

Mine was canceled due to fraud or whatever. I even called them yesterday to see about getting it emailed.

Cancelled your order or cancelled the code and refunded after the order went through?

My single quantity order from yesterday afternoon got cancelled this morning.  Same email everyone else got about fraud.  Talked to a chat rep and they told me to call them and they would honor it. Called them and they ended up giving me a $25 off promo code off a $45+ order. Seems more than fair enough.  Seems like the rep on the phone said they didn't have the ability to manually adjust the a price of an item for re-ordering.  She also said it wasn't cancelled because of the price, despite the email, but because the price was incorrect (seems very similar to the Mile Morales PS5 price mistake).  Regardless, seems like I come out ahead here.

I only have a $1,000 line of credit with Walmart but I got my code within minutes.  That doesn’t seem fair if someone with more money didn’t get theirs yet, what is Walmart doing!  Just a joke guys, no one freak out please.  It was an odd thing to bring up and just sounded kind of funny, but I don’t think anyone is trying to brag.  If he wants to use taking his line of credit elsewhere as an argument to get what he ordered, it’s a valid point to bring up with customer service.
 

Seriously though, weird how some orders processed at the same time went through fine and they didn’t just fix or take down the listing earlier.

I used PayPal and got it within a couple hours yesterday so the whole thing seems to be a crapshoot.

Slightly off topic: Walmart has DK tropical freeze for $40. Why isn’t anyone excited about that?

$40 for a game that came out 7 years ago is hard to get excited about, even if it is Nintendo.

Just tried this. The chat rep I got said it was due to a pricing error, and they would not do anything about it.

I got all my automated fraud calls this morning. Guess it was being marked suspicious by my bank after all.

I just tried a call this time and it they gave me the same speech how it was just a pricing error.

 

Edit: I tried the chat again, and they finally gave me a code with a little persuasion. Thanks for the tip!

Mine got cancelled yesterday, talked to support online, they said they would whitelist me with their fraud department and to try again in a half hour, tried again, the same thing happened.

So I got on support again, they tried the same "fraud" excuse, I called them out on it and then... they basically admitted that was NOT the reason, and that this was a pricing error.

So basically, Walmart priced it incorrectly, and instead of being honest about that, cancelled a bunch of orders and claimed it was because of potential fraud.

What utter trash.

Link to part of the conversation that I had with support:

http://www.negativew...almart-lies.png

BTW, people are saying they got calls from their bank... yeah, but not because the bank saw this as potential fraud on their own.  It's because Walmart marked these are potential fraud and your bank responded.  But they did this to get around honoring a price mistake.

"Called them and they ended up giving me a $25 off promo code off a $45+ order. Seems more than fair enough."

I tried my best with my rep to get SOMETHING out of them but they wouldn't do anything.  I guess it just depends on what rep you got but I mean, there is only so much work I will put in to saving $40 (I ordered 2 cards) before it's just not worth it.

So I'm done.  In closing, F Walmart for this deceptive garbage.  I'll remember this next time I think of wasting time trying to order anything from them.

I'm honestly wondering if what they did was illegal in some form, just straight up falsifying potential fraud, getting my credit card company involved, just to get around honoring a mistaken price, but I have no idea what I could even do about that if it were illegal anyway.  Me versus Walmart, not much of a shot there.

Sound like a bunch of sore losers over not benefiting from an obvious price mistake. Move on and stop harassing customer support.

No, Walmart is a legitimately shitty company ... so keep harassing them if they don’t give you something for your time. Especially since tons of people actually got this deal if you look at SD. None of this “poor Walmart CS” ... they know what they signed up for with an awful company.

Don’t harass individual people or be rude, but you have a right to question why you haven’t received a deal that many people got in on for hours and hours yesterday. This wasn’t a half hour glitch, one and done type deal.

Weird, I was just getting your Worst CAG award ready, but it went to like 5 posters this year so it’s taking the print shop longer ...

Used to do Walmart CS and it was awful, but I did need some money. Not saying the CS people deserve it, but Walmart treats them pretty badly.

Man, who the hell wants printed awards? And who gives year end awards at the beginning of the year?? Up your award game, but thank you for supporting print media.

If all orders got cancelled, you have a point.  But since many folks got what they ordered and they selectively cancelled orders, that's just bad company practice.

 

And in my instance, I never harassed anyone.  I just pointed out what happened and they took care of it for me.

I got it to go through on the first try with gift card + remainder on credit card.  The code arrived about two hours after the order was placed.  Time to snag myself the rest of the Civilization VI DLC lol.

It included a $200 Walmart giftcard ... but you’re right, we need to make cuts to keep the site running 😎

Did you try to buy an e-Shop card with your promo code?

Just for anyone curious, I received a cancellation right after posting people should stand up for their consumer rights ... so I used the chat feature (second time today, first time they told it was all good and to just sit tight for a few hours) and the representative refused to offer me anything because it was noted as a pricing error and they can’t offer anything if that’s the internal error code for the order.

Sooo anyone trying to get a discount code or giftcard will probably come up empty handed since they’ve shifted from made up fraud allegations to admitting it was a pricing error. Anyway, I legitimately dislike Walmart for many reasons and, while I feel bad for many of their employees but also understand why people work there because it’s sometimes the only game in town, I stand by my opinion that Walmart (and GameStop) is one of the worst companies in America.

seriously man.  people who work for walmart CS may not even have a choice.  It's not like jobs are plentiful right now.   Unless CS makes up shit or is rude to you, there's no reason to harass some working stiff just because walmart as a company has shitty policies.  You need to chill, etcrane.  Maybe develop some empathy.

Nah.  I didn't really need the eShop credit.  I plan to save it for something else.  Maybe a game that goes on sale but still is $45+.  It expires in 90 days.
