Walmart - 1 Hour Guarantee

3561 of 5139 Walmart reviews

We went to local Wal-Mart in Cobleskill NY at 10:15 PM yesterday.The item we wanted to purchase was out of stock(Emerson 32" HDTV).

Was given a Wal-Mart 1-Hour Guarantee Gift Card#6084 3470 6222 3511 EAN 4219) and was told we can call from home to validate the purchase. As we have no computer at home, we started calling about 10:45PM. After waiting about 30 minutes, we finally reached an Associte named Curtis. Explained why I'm calling, he asked for the number on the card.

Giving him the #, he then asked for the PIN#, which is at the end. After about 3, or 4 tries, he said the # does not match and he has to transfer me to another Dep't. This did not work and I wound up in a loop. Hanging up, I tried dialing again.

First I Got a busy signal. Hung up and tried again in a minute. Got through and again got the recording.

I sat with the phone until 12.35AM and in anger hung up.This is a matter of principal now.

This one hour guarantee is just a scam to get you buy a Walmart gift card,hoping you won't get a refund and use the card,most people will simply use the card. Great gimmick on part of Walmart.

I got to Holton ks Wal Mart for the 32 in Emerson tv and found out that they had sold out because they started selling them at 4pm and then I had to fight to get the one hour guarantee they also told others before 7pm that they could not get the tv any longer. They also sold out of other tv's that were not suppose to sale before 8 pm this store has very bad attitude and normally go to Topeka Ks but being late went to Holton because they are closer. I am also having trouble getting my guarantee card through. thank you for your help

Just a thought.. just saw Walmart CEO on Today show. What a joke. decided to go there yesterday to get a "guarantee" tv. We were in line before six, then told that in order to get the tv had to be in line 2 hours before? They then said that they can give a raincheck for full price. I should have known! First they trick you to come out on Thanksgiving to shop then don't have the stuff, so I guess shame on me. Never again lol.

Waited in line for over 2 hours, got home, and have been on the internet for 5 hours trying to process card. The website is not working! Really want this to go through for my daughter. Hope Walmart pulls it together.

I can't get through to the proper site. All I can find is the ads for the sales that started almost 6 hours ago.
I've already bought the TV I just want to finish my part!!

I don't understand this either we purchased it and should be able to come back and pick up our items from the store with the receipt. I cannot get on this website and I cannot get any help from Walmart. That's why I don't like giving people my money first without getting the merchandise. I already stood in line for a freaking hour just to get this piece of paper that I cant even use.

Walmart took my money and gave me a card that does not work. The website is just like Obama Care because I can't get on and when I do the the card they gave me won't work. The store manager says I can have a refund. I want my iPad! That I paid for! This needs to be fixed.

Went to Walmart and received a redemption card, however, when I go to the site I get the Unable to resolve DNS address. They still can't get it together! A former employee who's a little pissed.

Got my 1hour guarantee card to order an iPad for the store I just paid them for (doing their job to order items) and the card comes up invalid! Called the store and was told to call because they are not responsible for the cards. Call and was told I must have picked up the wrong card. I didn't pickup anything I was given this card by the cashier!
