In our local Black Friday ad it stated "Event 2 10 p.m. Thursday Nov 22. While supplies last. Limited Quantities. Sorry, no rainchecks.
There was a 60" Vizio LED Smart TV for $688 that my fiancee and I thought we'd try and get. He even called the local store on Wed 11/21 to confirm they would have these TV's here and they said yes.
At 9:15pm, my fiancee and his 15 yr old daughter headed to Walmart. Once at the store they headed straight to the Electronics dept where it appeared only 2 other individuals were waiting for this same item. A store associate stopped to see if anyone needed help and it was then that she informed my fiancee & the other individuals that Pre-Sale tickets had been give out at 6:00pm (4 hrs prior to the sale) and that all 14 60"Vizio's were already spoken for.
NOWHERE in the sale flyer was there mention of the advance tickets, nor was it mentioned when my fiancee contacted the store the day before the sale.
HOW DID ANYONE KNOW ABOUT THESE ADVANCE TICKETS? My guess is you had to have a close friend or relative working @ the store who tipped these 14 people off. False advertisiing and I did send email to corporate demanding a raincheck and of course have heard nothing from them.
Monetary Loss: $688.
