Walmart - Agressive Personal Data Collection

I went to Walmart today for an oil change, and to have my tires rotated (A CASH SALE). They said that they wouldn't touch my car unless I gave them my home address, name and phone #. I tried refusing to give my address, and they said that if I didn't give it to them, they wouldn't service my car. I can think of no valid reason for their needing my address to change my oil. Especially since they had possession of my (house and car) keys for a time in the process. I witnessed women at the counter being asked to recite their addresses and phone numbers in front of strangers? I have researched it a bit tonight and found that when you willingly give that information to Walmart, they take it as an implied consent to use it to to market products and services to you. They also reserve the right to share this data within their "Corporate Family of Companies" (whatever that means) According to a 2004 New York Times article, Walmart admitted to having 460 Terabytes of data on products and customers on their computer systems in Bentonville Ar. (in 2004) They are the Big Fish of customer data gathering. This was the last time they service any of my vehicles. Put that in your data base and Crunch it!

Walmart in Vernon, British Columbia - False Advertisement

Last week on Tuesday I went into my local Walmart to pick up the movie *House at the end of the street*-(blue-ray + digital copy) because it was slated to be out that day I did not see it on any shelf.I then proceeded to ask certain employees around the area where the movie was and not many of the workers could give me a straight answer,even though they had it evident on their movie list around the electronic area that it was suppose to be out for sale. Later that day I contacted the 1-800 customer service thing on this and I was then told by the woman I spoke to that they supposed release date for the movie had been changed at the last minute and I was like * are you fricken kidding me*. I then pointed out to her on the phone that they date for the *blue-ray + digital copy* was still showing the 8th as the release date and I told her that Walmart should of followed through on keeping that release date,instead of changing dates like they do because to me that's wrong. Not to mention here Walmart could also be held accountable for falsely advertising a product that they weren't gonna sale right away

Walmart - Bad for our Economy!

The cheapest thing is not always the best buy and most of the products are still worth the price tags! Buying from Walmart is supporting child labor in other countries, especially China. Even thought their CEO's are filthy rich, they refuse to provide health care benefits to their employes and so their many employes are forced to rely on the government and tax payers for health care. In this poor economy, many can't afford not to shop there but it is just making the economy worse not better. They build new stores and put local business owners out of business. They always have lot of check outlines but only a couple are ever open.

Walmart - Rudess Store Employees

This store in n miami beach fl has possitively got the rudess employees i have ever dealt with .You ask a question they will finished their conversation with their co- worker and then ask you WHAT ? I think every employee should act as if SAM Walton was standing right behind them . I called the store got a new magr jimmy he said he would check a video of an incident i had brought to his attention and return my call , i've called three times leaving a message with gina the ast magr ...still no return call just left my third message with Co mgr eric.... .When i shop the melbourne fl store its a pleasant enjoyable leisurely shopping expierence here in n miami beach totaly different. Is it to much to ask for stock clerks to speak english , i mean really i dread the fact i have to go back to this walmart... it's like the world has come to an end and everyones is scambling for whats left on the shelves ..no kidden i'd ..rather spend more $ at publixs ..like their motto sez where shopping is a pleasure ..

Walmart in Roanoke, Texas - Site To Store Mishap And Lies

My TV went out this passed September, and I set out to buy a new one. The best deals I found were on Walmart.com and Amazon.com. I decided to go with the TV on Walmart's site because they were promising Site To Store could get it to me in 3 days, where Amazon was going to take 5-7 days, and since I had no TV I wanted the faster option. The date was September 8th, and prior to checking out the website was saying I'd get it the 11th, so I added the TV to my cart and checked out. After I'd put in my CC number, paid and everything, an "Order Summary" popped up, and it said it would arrive the 15th. Wait a minute, 2 minute ago it was the 11th, now it's the 15th? The only thing that changed was they got my CC number, which I guess is all it takes. You've already paid, now you're on OUR time. Ten minutes later I check my e-mail, and there's an order confirmation from Walmart.com. I open it up, and to my surprise, it says the 18th!! In less than 15 minutes we've gone from the 11th to the 15th to the 18th. Long story short, it shows up on the 21st. What started out as a 3 day wait turned into 2 weeks. The bottom line is don't ever trust the shipping eta that Walmart.com gives you. Once they have your money they will get it to you when they *** well please. They will tell you one thing, then as soon as you pay tell you something else. I wouldn't say I "lost" money because I made the choice to buy from Walmart instead of Amazon, but the only reason I ordered from them was they were promising faster delivery, and I decided to pay a little bit more for the same TV (only $15) to get it several days sooner, only to get it about a week later.

I was at Wal-Mart today, tried on three pairs of shoes, got the boxes mixed up and I went to the self checkout. I received a phone call. The girl cashier who was helping me at Wal-Mart could have said, "Sir, you didn't scan a couple items," but instead, they got me for...
