Simon, I think the point is that if a sale is advertised to start at a certain time, it shouldn't be determined who gets what four hours before it begins. Especially if it's on a national holiday.

Personally, I loathe this change to midnight.

It's a total disrespect to Thanksgiving. It's even more loathsome that it's actually starting before midnight...

It's a fairly simple concept to understand, not sure why people are having such a difficult time getting it. If people stand in lines for hours to get the items and you people come rolling in at midnight, why do you think you should get them rather than the ones that have been standing there for hours?

lol.

The items have not been given out, but spoken for, by that time. You're just too late.

Walmart in Dallas, Texas - WALL MART BREAKING LAW! SALE

We just came back from our local Wal-Mart on N. Marsh Lane in Dallas, TX. We went over because of the Electronics sale "advertised" as "STARTING" at Midnight. We were looking for the Laptop Computer advertised. However, upon arriving back in the Electronics department, we were informed by a store employee that the store only had seventy-six (76) and that they had arlready issued seventy-six (76) tickets to customers. So much for "selling the Electronics at Midnight". I don't read the Law books every year, but the last time I did, it was stated, that the terms of sale had to be stated in the advertisement, otherwise it was illegal!! How may store employees informed friends and relatives, that tickets would be issued to customers "before" Midnight??? Thereby making the "Midnight Sale" impossible. BIG BUSINESS AS USUAL; GO OCCUPY GROUPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Corporate greed is getting beyond belief, to the level of Fantasy!!! I hate to date myself, but when I was growing up, companies were honest and not greedy. Now, they are greedy and dishonest!! HAVE A GREAT DAY WAL-MART (AND ALL OF CORPORATE AMERICA).

If you have called WalMart like every other person out there to see what they are doing for Black Friday about lines and such you would realize they hand out tickets for big items like that to stop fights breaking out and 2nd of all Did you expect to be 1st in line arriving at 12am? WalMart didn't break any laws if they did why can't you give us the name of the law they broke?

What law did they brake? Were any of the labtops sold before 12?

Most likely not.

Handing out a ticket is not the same as selling. The ticket only assured that the line was correct ant that the ones who got there first would be the ones that got the labtop.

Dumdum their ad said they were letting people get set up for the items hours in advance. What law did they break adding tickets so that people who showed up at 12 couldn't just cut in line in front of people who got there hours earlier?

Best Buy, Target, Walmart, etc have all been doing tickets for years.

And yes feeling that because they didn't give you what you wanted is your own issue not them being greedy.

The fact they had 76 when the minimum quantity on a lot of these items was 8-15 should have impressed you.

Anonymous
#380705

Lot of People missed the main point here. There are Laws!!!

Just because you got a ticket, does not make it right. The Law is the Law. If I had known Wal-Mart was going to break the Law, I would have been at the store at 10:00 pm, like others. And as to your safety for shoppers, one store here had a female almost trampled to death!!!

And GREED has nothing to do with the situation. I'm like everyone else (I think), I just want to have the same advantages (ie: I wish I had been informed the sale was not at midnight but, that the merchandise would go to whoever was given a ticket before sale time [not in adversisement]). And there were other Wal-Mart stores here where there were problems.

Obey the Laws; their there for a reason!!!!!! PS: hope you enjoy your new laptop.

They are arrogant and have the worst customer service of any store in the US. The only good thing about them is that they are non-union! But, that does not hardly make up for their other faults. Just go to Meijer, Target, who knows or cares where.

Just don't shop in WalMart. If you do, it won't take long for you to be disappointed and pissed.

WalMart doesn't seem to care about disabilities

I have multiple disabilities. I generally don't complain about this but Wal-Mart really upset me. I tried to talk with customer services. I wanted to buy just 1 TV that would be affordable for me on tonight's sale. I at night due to cataracts, and should not be out in the cold due to having bypass surgery on both my legs twice and now they are failing and having had 5x heart by pass, plus I wear braces and have a spinal cord injury. The Wal-Mart customer service person told me "she understood but there is nothing I can do." No, I don't think she understands. I told her I would give her my credit card number, pick it up tomorrow as it was not offered online at that price. She refused to help me. So for those of you that disabilities or a member of your family that has a disability, I would think about this before taking your business to Wal-Mart.

The rules for the special sales for Black Friday apply equally to all. You would have the same experience at ANY retailer.

First come, first serve. These limited time sales CANNOT at any reason be help for anyone to purchase... That would violate consumer laws and FTC advertising regulations. If what you're saying is true, anyone could call and claim hardship.

We are all for your plight and are very sensitive to people with disabilities.

There are, though, PLENTY of online deals available to you. You do not have to venture outside the home.

I understand where you are coming from, but you would probably benefit from doing the black friday sales online. You can get great deals online and never have to leave your house.

If Walmart, or any black friday retailer, made an exception for you, they would have to for everyone. Plus it is against store policy to hold on to your credit card number, that is just asking for trouble.

Walmart selling bogis moneycards

I went to walmart in countryside,IL. and purchased a moneycard debit card. that night when i got home and tried to activate the card i was told by a support person ( you know the one, they cannot speak any english) that they are having a problem with one of there systems would i please call back in 1 hour and it should be fine then. 2 hours pass, i call back and i'm connected again to someone who cannot speak english (just barely) again i'm told of a problem with some system of theres and would i call back in 2 hours that the problem will be corrected by then. It's now the following day and i'm still being told that there is something wrong with one of the systems and would i try again in an hour or two. No i can't. Walmart i beleave is scamming its customers. I put 50 dollars on a moneycard that i am unable to use, however walmart gets to use my 50 bucks right now. lets say that walmart does this to 5000 people, that would be a whopping 250,000 dollars that they can sit on while the "system is being repaired in 2 hours" its a nice way to make free money off the public tying up there money for a couple of days and make lots of intrest off of it at the same time, nice scam. And the clincher is that walmart will not return my 50 bucks ,i'm told that when the systems return to normal that i can close out the account if i wish

Dear Anonymous (Daniel Swede) - The attack dogs of pissedconsumer.com are out and they are circling in a pack mentality. They cannot dispute your complaint, so they try attacking from another angle.

While I have no helpful advice for you since I have never experienced this problem, I can certainly tell you that you will NEVER get help on this site. To say that your complaint will be ridiculed here is the grossest understatement of 2011. Your prespective is an interesting one, and if you believe that this is happening, perhaps you could contact some authority in your state. In any event, good luck in resolving your problem.

Walmart in Apollo, Pennsylvania - Cashier associate embarrassed older couple

We were checking out at our local walmart last evening, when we overheard an associate berating an older couple just ahead of us for having more than the alloted 20 items. They seemed dumfounded as to her ramblings and i don't think they really understood what she was talking about and how degrading her attitude was, but we did notice the wife going to customer service as we were leaving. In my working days I was a district manager for a large privately owned company here in florida. If any one of our employees were to have subjected ANY customer to that type of treatment, we would quickly have Invited that employee to seek employment elsewhere. What is wrong with young people nowadays?. Do they resent retirees? What entitles and empowers them to be so disrespectful?. I would think they would be grateful for even having a job in this economic environment especially in florida which is a right to work state.

Yes... That policy is in state for a reason, the Cashier is in the right here...

The Express Lanes are put into place so that customers can get through lines quicker if they only have a few items... They are not built with a belt so anything more than 20 items is a pain for the cashier, the customer at hand, and the customers waiting in line. If I still worked for WalMart, I would have done the exact same thing. Not because you're OLD, but because it's the right thing to do for the customers who legitimately have less than 20 items.

STOP BEING SELFISH!!! Your "entitlement" factor is deeply sickening. The worst thing is, it's always the Baby Boomers. You're not so important, trust me, you've ruined life for the rest of us by being fiscally irresponsible.

I'm 22 and definitely have no respect for the Baby Boomer generation.

Walmart has deceitful ads on mobile app

very frustrated --walmart's mobile app is deceitful --it lists the item price and says it is available in your store --on the screen it lists the price and specifically says it is available in your store - it then gives you two buttons - order online or find in store. When you pick find in store it takes you to another screen that says to show the upc code to an associate to locate the item in the store. When you drive to the store it has a much inflated price-- stood in customer service line only to be told that the price online was not available in the store. The item was $89.00 on the mobile app which stated that it was available in store --price in store $112.00 - I pointed out that the price was $89 at home depot and amazon and asked if she could price match it --she said " you should just go there and buy it" Came home and called customer service --they said oh --well prices are different from store to store. I explained that the mobile app specifically lists the price and says available in your store #1184 -- nothing that would indicated a different price -- customer service guy --"oh , well that's a problem with the mobile app not the store --you need to talk to them - I will transfer you-- go through the whole thing again with this guy -- basically, sorry, we know that is a problem but live with it. Wal mart has lost me as a customer for life --2 and a half hours of my life gone because they listed false pricing. I will shop elsewhere from now on.

Online prices are different than in-store prices no matter where you go. You pay a premium for having the item available in store available for pickup immediately.

Amazon is also just that, an online store.

Every website specifically states that prices are different and that stores will not match online prices. This is a case of you being ignorant of the media you are using, not false advertising.

Walmart in Toronto, Ontario - Would not sell my child CD.

My 12 year old daughter was caught shoplifting there and they made a big deal over it all over CD's totaling $100 more or less. For a company that makes that much money to be harsh on a child is wrong. Come on she is only 12 years old. She even admitted she would have bought the CD's but they refused to sell them to her since they were parental advisery. Who are they to tell my daughter what CD's she can and can't get. They think that because they are the biggest retailer they can tell us how to raise our children. Also she is only 12 years old, she does not know any better. If it was an adult I can see why they would be so uptight but this is a 12 year old. I have no problem with her listening to those CD's who are they telling me what my child can and cant listen to that is my job not theirs. Also for the idiots who are planning on asking why did I not purchase the CD's for her. For one thing she was shopping with a friend's mother. Another thing, who are they to say that she cannot buy the CD's that is my job not theirs. I even offered to buy the CD's for her but they told me that she already committed the crime. I even asked them if I could buy the CD's after this whole thing is done with, they told me that they would excort us out of the store and she would not be allowed in the store without a parent, and if we do return to the store she is not to leave my side. I won't be returning and I bought the same CD's for her at Target.

Your bad parenting led up to her committing this crime and you're taking absolutely no responsibility. Walmart did the right thing when they banned your daughter, she stole from them. At that point, your daughter is no longer a customer but a thief.

They should have banned you too. I wouldn't want you OR your daughter shopping at my store either.

When I was 5 years old, I stole a gem bag from a craft's store. When my Mom found out about it, I was told to go to the corner, put my hands up (for a long time your hands can get sore), and wait till my Dad had a word to say to me.

At the time I thought it was the worst thing that happened to me, but now I'm so thankful for them for teaching me so early that stealing was wrong.

Now I'm just...wow...You allow her to get CDs meant for people over 17 years of age, but then saying "she's only 12 years old, she doesn't know any better." Bull. If she feels so grown up to steal a Parental Advisory CD, then she *** well should feel grown up about facing the consequences.

The absolute stupidity of your comment astounds me. If you told female coworkers that they had " great bodies",then you committed sexual harassment.

And if they asked you to stop and you didn't, you were not " falsely accused" and were rightfully terminated. And if you continued to make those comments to other female coworkers at another job, then you have a serious problem and should seek professional help immediately. Personally , I think you are a *** ***.

Are you freaking kidding me? You're honestly on here defending your child and making Walmart out to be some cruel beast being mean to your child?

At 12 years old, your daughter is more than old enough to know not to steal and that stealing is a crime. Quit minimizing your child's responsibility for her actions and take action by not rewarding bad behavior by buying her the CDs she tried to steal because Walmart was following their policy and the law by refusing. You're acting like your child was insulted and publicly humiliated but she needs to be shamed because what she did was wrong and maybe if you allow her to face the consequences for her actions instead of shifting the blame elsewhere, she'll think twice before she repeats this mistake. You focused on how she was shamed and how Walmart was wrong to deny the sale but how about thinking about someone besides you and your daughter for a change?

How about the embarassment the friend and the friend's mom felt when your daughter was caught shoplifting while out with them? Or the awkwardness the employees felt when they had to confront your daughter for shoplifting? No one wants to have to admonish someone especially a child for something like this but to ignore it and act like it didn't happen would be worse because then your daughter would feel the freedom to do it again. Walmart isn't telling you how to raise your kid but maybe they should start because you don't seem to have a clue and you don't seem to want to do it and do it right.

Concerned parents are the ones who raised the issue about parental advisory on some items such as games, movies, CDs etc so that laws were put into place to deal with it. They aren't saying you don't have the right to allow your child to listen to whatever-they are just saying they want sell it to them and if you want your kid to have it then you come into the store and buy it for them. You need to teach your kid some delay in self-gratification instead of encouraging that self-serving bratty type behavior. She couldn't wait until she got home to have you go there and buy it or have the friend's mom get it for her?

It wouldn't hurt you and your daughter to learn the meaning of and how to respect the word "NO". You wan't her to listen to that stuff then be my guest but maybe you need to reconsider it since it seems it's part of what got her in trouble in the first place. It is a big deal that she stole because if allowed to go unscathed, she would just continue to steal bigger and bigger things. Is that really what you want?

If you keep overindulging her and allowing her to succumb to every whim that crosses her mind then you better prepare yourself to visit her in prison because that is where she will be if she doesn't learn self control. We'll be supporting your kid in prison while supporting your multiple grandchildren all because you haven't taught her the meaning of no and self-control perhaps because you haven't learned it yourself. Rather than wasting time on here trying to rally support for you and your child while making lame excuses for where you've failed as a parent, how about taking some parenting classes and start doing your job as her parent so none of the rest of us have to? Kids make mistakes all the time but it's the parents job to teach them not to repeat the same mistakes by allowing them to face the consequences associated with their actions and learn from it.

You are standing in the way of your daughter learning to become a trustworthy, productive, law-abiding citizen. Shame on you. Love her enough to participate in the tough part of being her mother. Quit caving to her whining and begging and teach her some morals after you find them yourself.

I can't believe you are here expecting support and encouragement for what is clearly bad behavior. You don't have a problem with her listening to those lyrics or stealing them but you have a problem with Walmart employees doing their job and you have a problem with your kid getting called down for doing wrong.

Get a grip and get over it-do the right thing and do us all a favor---DON'T have any more KIDS! OMG!!!!!!!

They should have Sent the kid to "Juvie" for theft, and you to Jail for aiding and abetting. The only thing you are pissed about is, "she got caught. You are a terrible parent,what a loser.

And to the writer who said the Clerk should

have let her buy the CD!! you are as bad as they are. The store is under a very big Bond, and would face a very large fine for selling the CD to a kid.That shows

"you" have no moral Compass.laws are there for a reason. In this case to protect Juveniles from themselves and people like you.

So you minimize what your daughter did, stealing/theft/shoplifting (breaking the law) and blame Walmart for doing it's job correctly (following the law). You, I am sure, didn't even punish your daughter since you are out in public fighting that she was wronged..but I am sure your dumb *** would have sued Walmart if they HAD sold them to her underage.

What a loser, and no wonder your daughter is fast learning how to be one to.

And to the *** who called people racial slurs...your a racist ***.

Um.. this is a JOKE right?

a 12 year old should know better not to steal.

a 6 year old might not, but even from a young age children have a basic sence of right and wrong and it is pathetic you haven't taught her better.

i do agree the store should have let her buy them, and that was wrong on their part,but OBVIOUSLY they don't want her in the store, and they have every right to say she can't be there. SHE STOLE from them.

get a brain, stop thinking your child is an angel and don't reward her with the cd's after she just stole them. ....some people should not be parents....

I can see why the child is a budding career criminal---her mother is a lunatic! In England in the 17th century, they would hang 8 year old children for stealing a loaf of bread.

We have come a long way since then, but criminal behaviour apparently runs in people's genes. Are you of English heritage by any chance??

First of all, it is a federal law mandated that you must be at least 18 years of age to buy parental advisory labeled music. Second, seriously.

When I was 7 years old,I stole a pack of topps baseball cards at a 7/11. My dad was with me and when the clerk stopped us, my dad whooped me not only in the store, but also in the car and again at home. If my son stole at the age of 12(he is only 2 right now), I would kick his little butt. You obviously have some parenting issues.

A 7 year old knows better, I new I was stealing beacuse my dad wouldnt by me the cards. I suggest you take some parenting classes, or better yet, have a group of Marine Corp drill instructors put some sense in you, and your little theif of a child.

DUH, thats a real no brainer! I wouldnt let that thief in my store either if I caught her stealing! In some middle east countries, if one is caught stealing, they will chop off that persons hand. Any questions?

BTW, I have never stolen anything.

Perhaps you need to take her to visit with a Catholic priest and take her to mass more often. Bottom line...teach that *** kid some morals in the first place and you wouldnt be having the problems that you are having now!

I have three kids and they started learning right from wrong before they could walk or talk.

Good thing Walmart is looking out for your kid because you definitely are whats defined as a 'failing parent'. You think your kids music choices don't effect their behavior? You want them thinking it's ok to just take whatever they want if they can't have it legally? You think making this post on this website will magically keep your kid out of prison?

When she is a teen and her boyfriend forces himself on her, what will your response be when he says 'well, if she would have just said "yes" I wouldn't have forced her. Its her fault'

Will you use your own logic and say 'thats okay then'

While saving money for school, I worked for a large grocery chain. At times when the fuzz wasn't waiting outside for the thief to walk out, (e.g. hadn't left the store yet), we called the police, snapped their picture, distributed it to all of the local stores and advised the thief that if he ever stepped foot inside of another one of our stores that he would be immediately arrested for trespassing in front of as many other customers as possible.

It's our store on our property and we have the right to determine our patrons and for whom we wish to make an example of. The fact that he will never buy from us again is the least of our concerns.

PS: the OP showed magical parenting skills in the situation presented. Hopefully, next time you and your baby criminal will be arrested together and share some quality family time behind bars learning why it's wrong to steal. I'm disappointed that members of our society like the OP even exist.

So as long as your daughter doesn't get caught,stealing Cd's,Liquor,smokes,it's all ok? By 12 my kids knew the difference between right and wrong and they also knew the consequences!

She should have been hauled off to jail!

Just wait and see what you have to look for, A pole dancer, listening to stolen CD's and you get to sit at home and raise your new grand baby! Doesn't that sound like fun!

My five year old knows better than that. lol.

As for the not letting her buy those cds thing, that's 'cause they're not allowed to. I mean, if they sold your daughter an r-rated video game you'd be a little pissed off, yeah? same sorta thing. They refuse to sell certain things to minors because of the majority of parents who would be angry about it. there are a minority like yourself who get upset that they are "choosing" what she can and csn't listen to. They aren't the ones who attach the PA lables, the employees are not the ones who decide on the rules about selling the cds. They are however the ones who risk getting fired if they don't obey, and in some cases risk fines.

Though I do feel the need to point out that if she was still in the store and hadn't left yet (and it wasn't a bag check situation) then she legally hasn't stolen anything.

"Also she is only 12 years old, she does not know any better"...I strongly believe that what you think is wrong. If every parent would take the same approach toward development of their own child or children that would be terrible.

The stolen goods are or will be paid by somebody even you personally think that Walmart has a lot of profits(who'll pay the transport or manufacturer???) therefore they can afford lose. I believe that it wasn't the first time when she was caught shoplifting to the same location. What about other places? Continue buying her from Target.

If you do not correct her attitude for sure she'll be "cut" also from there, and later the police will appear in this "diagram".

For sure she has compartmental behaviour. Do something right now, if not...you'll cry later!

"The idiots planning on asking why I didn't just buy the CD for her?" Yea, we weren't wondering that at all....Nobody cares if you choose to let your daughter listen to that ***, but companies who enforce the law care enough about their reputation to not sell a minor anything with a parental advisory on it. Shoplifting is a serious crime, if this is a joke, then ha ha.

If not, well, good luck to your daughter in the future. At this rate, she'll be dancing on a pole to the music she stole.

Stealing is wrong, most sane people accept that. And Walmart isn't telling anyone what kind of cds they can buy. They don't have to, there are laws for that. Walmart was just complying with the law.

A concept that is apparently foreign to you and your thief daughter.

Maybe next time she wants music she can't afford she can just go drop her panties and sell herself for it. After all, prostitution is only a crime...and you don't mind if your daughter is a criminal.

sounds like your daughter is only sorry she got caught!!!!!!

when my daughter was 15 i took her to get a tattoo, but the laws of our state said she couldn't have one til she was 18, even with parental consent......so no tattoo, and i didn't go blaming everyone else.....

what you are missing is the fact that your daughter crossed the boundries. a 12 yr old does now that shoplifting is wrong, whether they would have sold her the cds or not.

at 12 yrs old she could have thought of a better option than to steal, but now that you blame walmart for their obviously stated polices you give your daughter permission to steal because you blame everyone else for her choice. SHE MADE THE CHOICE TO STEAL AND YOU ARE GIVING HER PERMISSION and telling her its okay if you steal because you really wanted it.

Get a clue. your daughter was wrong and should be held accountable-otherwise she will think that she should suffer no concesquences for her actions the rest of her life.

WalMart is not trying to tell you how to raise our child, nor how to dress her, feed or clothe her. There are guidelines in place where CD's are too explicit and parental advisories are placed so that kids under a certain age cannot purchase them unless there is a parent or guardian present. If your daughter was with a friends mother, why were you not called by that mother to see if it would be okay for your daughter to purchase these CD's?

I assume that you have taught your daughter the difference between right and wrong, a lie and the truth and what it means to take something that does not belong to you.

Mom, you missed the boat on this one. Her lesson for the day was that stealing is okay, because that big bad WalMart had no business telling her what she could and could not have and since she could not have it, it was perfectly allright to STEAL IT. Then to top it off you graciously offered to pay for it cementing the lesson of the day.

Your daughter should be punished severely for what she did, but we both know that's not going to happen. Just be ready when the cops knock on your door

This isn't the first time she has shoplifted, its just the first time she has gotten caught.
