I don't know about any of you - but it's a bit hard weeding through the dozen or more Wal-Mart threads. It'd be nice to have a thread with just the latest info, news articles, pick-up successes, and if anyone starts getting their items shipped ...

UPDATE @ 9PM 11/7 - Wal-Mart is now emailing out the $10 gift cards. No limitations or spending requirement.

UPDATE @ 11:00AM 11/7 - Wal-Mart is now INTERCEPTING already shipped orders! So until you actually have the item in hand, there is a chance, even if it is shipped, that you will not receive it


UPDATE @ 8:16 - 11/6 - glen107wood received this email:


Dear Customer,

Last night and this morning we experienced a technical error that caused many items to show incorrect pricing. We are working to quickly resolve the issue. Unfortunately, given the wide discrepancy in pricing, we have canceled your order.

We apologize for the inconvenience, and will be sending you an email with a $10 e-gift card (one per customer) within the next 5 days. We appreciate your business and look forward to you visiting walmart.com again soon.

Sincerely,
Your Walmart.com Customer Service Team


-------------------------------------------------------

UPDATE:

Online orders for shipping are now being canceled across the board, although some items are shipping. Looks like their policy is that they are not going to honor the prices, and it's pure luck whether you are able to get anything shipped or not.

Quote from TS_TS View Post :
I think what I have gathered from this thread and 100+ pages of others so far is this:

If you made an order with in-store pickup for today, it will process, but it depends on the managers and employees whether they honor it.

if you made an order with priority shipping EARLY ON it shipped and you are home free

If you made an order with site to store for future date or made a ship to home order with free shipping, you are in order processing limbo

And if you made an order and the credit card company flagged it or something caused the funds to not be immediately paid, walmart has cut you off and you are out in the cold.

So far we've heard conflicting reports during Store Pickups - many were successful.

It looks like once WalMart caught wind, there were quite a few stores refusing the pickups. Then it seemed to ease up a bit, and one person so far stated that their store was told to honor one of each item.

Online orders appear to be mostly processing, but to my knowledge no one has reported a successful shipment. I ordered one or two things with the express, 1 day delivery - so if they ship they should ship out today.

It looks like pickup orders, being at the mercy of the Walmart location, may be cancelled - but that doesn't reflect the online (shipping) orders as that will be controlled by Walmart corporate. I think the gut-check reaction by Walmart/Walmart locations was originally to cancel the orders .. then probably cooler heads prevailed and they started letting them go through more. The interesting thing will be the online (shipping) orders, and if they are mass-canceled or what happens to them.

Cool post of a compilation of SD'ers pictures of their swag!

http://slickdeals.net/forums/showpost.php?p=63039342&postcount=2018

So far, one of the most important quotes from Wal-Mart:

"When asked if the company will honor items sold to customers at the mistakenly low prices, Jariwala said the company is "still working through those details."

I was able to get 2 disney infinitys (18 dollars).. i ordered 4, but they only let me have one of each (xbox and wii). I was able to get 2 just dance 2014 (wii and xbox). They said the madden was sold out,but i just got an email that said it should be available on the 14th, so unsure about that.

Tons of people were able to pick-up successfully. See the above post about pictures from SD'ers with their successful pickups.

I have received order confirmations for all 12 of my orders for site to store delivery. So far no cancellations. We shall see. I changed up the pickup store on a couple to maybe not raise too many eyebrows on the items I really want to go through. But, of course, I'm not getting my hopes up and realize that most likely they will all be cancelled.
