Ordered a wheel barrow through walmart. Wal-Mart refuses to refund the full amount. I have made many purchases on walmart. I have always had fast,reliable shipping at great walmart prices. Confusing descriptions of multiple product sets, don't know how much to get. Reviews are posted in the wrong order; old reviews show up first, some because they were better ratings. I don't understand why they can't set up more warehouses; products come from all over the country.
Some third party sellers are now hidden. Description doesn't state this always and you can't return a third party item to Walmart. Uh, oh, could Walmart possibly be headed down the Kmart highway? First exit in the left lane: Sears on interstate Walmart hides product reviews. Everytime I look at a product online at Walmart there are less and less reviews and even if it says there are 20 reviews Walmart on the old will show you about 5 of them. I'm sure they think we don't notice this I don't know how they think they're ever going to beat Amazon without showing us product reviews.
If the product is bad it's bad stop hiding bad reviews. Ordered a gaming PC online the day before Thanksgiving. Was supposed to be delivered Dec 1. Never got a shipping confirmation or an email stating there would be a delay.
Contacted customer service Dec 1 to see if the item had shipped. Surprise - no delivery. Contacted CS again the next day. Different and honest CS rep told me the order was "stuck in processing" and the only way to fix it was to cancel the order? Of course, it is now out of stock.
Oh yeah, and if it does come back in stock I will have to pay the higher price and hope that they will make an adjustment to the Black Friday price. Ordered 5 items only got 4 of them, mow the question me if i picked it up. All this for a 4 dollar filter. I brought a item far Walmart. They answer to this issue is for me to wait, it will arrive someday.
So I call the Fedex to find out that they have not receive my item fromWalmart. Clothes sold on Wal-Mart. Warehouse just destroying items because nobody buying it. On the front page of the ad Walmart puts the best deals! I have not done Black Friday in years because of the violence and rudeness of greedy people.
So I decided I would give Walmart a chance on their online service! I understand that you might have technical issues but I'm not understanding that you have been out of stock on the 1 item I was going to purchase and it was on the front cover of the Black Friday Ad! It was never in stock because I have looking at 40 and 43 inch TVs!
I really believe this is false advertisement! Just wondering why that was on the front page and not even on the web page did it say this was out of stock. I thought it was because it was going to be available. I like how we got to sign if we are doing false reviews but you are not responsible for false advertisement.

Mine starts with an "A". Actually, almost all credit cards will do this, so you don't have to keep getting lead in circles until the company who you purchased the item from exhausts you and you give up. This is their plan. Just make sure to keep as much info for proof as you can: I have even gotten money back from companies with very strict no refund policies. Let your CC company do the work for you. Many times when even a large corporation is contacted by your CC company, they'll solve the problem immediately to avoid the time it would take them to fight it.
Someone above suggested the BBB, but that is more time consuming. Your CC can actually get your money credited back to your account much faster in less time.

You are dealing with Walmart. If you want to complain about lines I don't recommend buying anything from Walmart you can't immediately hold in your hand, but if you still want to, see if you can have the item shipped by the regular post office. There may also be another shipping company where you are, but you will have to ask the Walmart in particular.. Make sure you check reviews on any others as well. Watch the money though. It may pay you to just get it somewhere else at a higher price.
It's illegal to do, and illegal to solicit, so make sure you turn yourself and Walmart in to the FBI if you do, but here's how Then long press the URL at the very top in the status line. Not everyone has credit cards or wants the high debts, so this was not wise of walmart at all. I was happy to hear about Walmart bringing layaway back. You guys are crazy for taking away the layaway away from dedicated customers.
Now I go right past walmart to go to kmart!!!!! People like me with not so much income need layaway. Crazy crazy crazy decision!!!!! Do not care about your customers. Not all people have money. I also use Kmart layaway, which gives me the opportunity to pay little until I can pay it off. I use Kmart Layaway for almost everything. Making things easier for other people who are less fortunate.
I was one of the Associates handling the Christmas Layaway Program for our store this year. For our Walmart Store Layaway did very well, but at the same time was actually really inconvenient for our us. The space we normally used to keep a lot of our inventory had to be cleared out.
Even with the restrictions we ran out of room to store layaways. Now although I said Layaway did really well, our total sales amounted to about the same amount we make on a single front end register in one business day. It took us 3 months to make 1 business day of profit.
I would like the program to stay myself, I loved working it and would like to use it, but I can understand why they got rid of it. Wal-mart layaway was the way to go. I would really like to see this come back. I surely would use it. I have been wanting a flat screen tv for ever. I really pray they would bring back layaway Wal-Mart permantely. It really would help a lot of individuals with children and financial hardships.
I like Walmart products better then Kmart. I wish there was a layaway again at walmart that is how we bought most or our nice things in our home. When the kids where small thats how we bought their Chrismas and our grandchildren to. Thank You for Listening! Shame you guys dropped it. I would have been buying one thing after the other. As it is, you lost another customer.
Speaking as a single parent….. I need the layaway program so I can provide the extra things for my household….. I would like to see walmart bring back lawaways all year. Please bring walmart layaways back all year. Layaway has been a godsend for people who wish to buy higher priced items and could not do so otherwise. Also, families with lots of kids or lower income families need to budget their needs. In this economy, a little bit of consideration would be appreciated. I like the layway, also!
It helps you budge it for something that you can not afford to put out the cash all at once. It helps when you have a season item that you like and do not have the money right then. I too am very disappointed in walmart. To be controlling on the rules for layaway is ridiculous. I honestly thought kmart would be closing down cause walmart gets the business. But walmart put kmart back in the game!
I know for large shopping needs other then groceries I will use kmart. The last few years walmart has been very disappointing in many areas. Then the rules put on the layaway just pissed me off.
People should learn to read policies and receipts. Wal mart need to bring back thier layaway program, it doesnt matter if they make money or lose money from the layaway!!!
I used to use Walmart all the time for layaway. But they quit doing it. Those of us who do not have a ton of money or a credit card to throw items on, makes it difficult for those of us who work hard every day and are just barely making it, to buy the items we may really need at ANY time. Provide your employees better! Give them some medical insurance. And for goodness sake……bring back layaway!!!!! Shame on Walmart not everybody can afford things the way your store say it can. Walmart have got out of that and for that money will be lost you may not feel it now but you will oneday.
Sitting at the board meeting wondering how to get more plan smart and not just for the moment now roll that down. Just did all my shopping for my new home through Kmart layaway online. Can make all payments online and pick up at the Kmart close to my new home after the move. Walmart you really messed up and are losing a lot of customers. Considering that I had a balance board, and two other wii games that were horribly expensive on layaway, I think I should have been able to put that game with the rest of my items.
I had to put the game back. It was silly, especially when the old dude behind me was arguing in my favor might have been because he wanted to get out of there though.
