Walmart,

When you say pick up today for an online purchase, it should really be available to be picked up today! You tell me now that I have to wait tomorrow when the store is open 24 hours?!!

At least inform the customers before they make a purchase that 'pick up today' has exemptions!!!! I am very disappointed. This is not good business. Please update your online store or your customers will not be happy!

If the store I ask to get the item picked up is 24 hours then It is fair to assume that the item will be there when I can come and get it as soon as I want.

What is the limiting factor here? if the item is available on the shelf then why can i not use my order number to pick it up a few minutes after i purchase it online?

Monetary Loss: $203.

Makes me mad just reading this lol. I ordered a game this morning online just because it was $20 cheaper, and I know they were fully stocked in the store doesn't make any sense why you can't just pick it up.

I've so far been waiting 6 hours and haven't gotten a text or email. If I have to wait till tomorrow or whenever I'm gonna be pissed, what a waste of my day.

I noticed the same scam. It went from available today before I clicked buy.

After click it was now tomorrow since after six. Then a few minutes later after they had secured the fraudulent sale it was f u your order will.

Be in in a week. I felt like I just took a proverbial rough cut 2x4 with no lube.....

Someone doesn't know how to read the print they put on the site when you order. They say orders placed after 5 or 6PM will be available next day.

Plus if the item is already at the store... Then get your lazy *** up and go to the store and get it if it's so important to you. Why make a site to store purchase if it's already at the store on a shelf?

You have to go to the store and go to the site-to-store counter to pick it up anyway.

People are lazy these days.

Nonone your a dumba$$. Don't you see the obvious?

It's a whole lot cheaper to buy offline.

So Id rather be "lazy" than be a dumba$$ and pay full price. So you just keep getting your perked up self to a store and make the Walton family more wealthy.

Why would you make a comment about them making the Walton family richer like they're dumb for doing that when you're shopping there too. Lmfao I think you should use more logic.

I think the reason is mommy or daddy was not there to read that part for the child who wrote this complaint. Mommy or daddy needed to read the exception for this little child because clearly they are illiterate.

If you get your lazy *** up and go buy it at the store it's higher than the price online. That's why! Saved $100 on a swimming pool that way!

The online pick up price is sometimes less than in store and Walmart will not match their own website in the store.

Because it is cheaper online!!!!! And they won't sell it to you in the store for the same price!!!

If they can't fulfill their promise that you can "pickup as soon as today", they shouldn't offer it! My order said available for pick up after 3:50 TODAY.

It was going on 7:00 pm when we went to pick it up!! Still wasn't available for pickup, even though the same item was sitting on the store shelf!

Items ordered after 6 pm will be available for pickup the next day.

Even though the policy that Walmart does not price match their website, at the Walmart I work at, management has instructed us to match any price on our website as long as the item on the website is the EXACT same item that is in the store. Their reasoning for this is because they would rather make a smaller profit on said item than no profit at all, because when an item is reserved for a customer via Pick Up Today after they pay for it and they pick it up, the store only gets a credit for what they paid for it rather than making a profit on it, that, and it makes customers happy.

I saw the game I wanted online for 38.03. Shipping said "pick up today".

I did not order online but instead went to store to just buy it, duh. It was $49.95 for same game, in stock. Was told they could not honor online price of $38.03. Price difference of $11.92.

That's huge. Ordered game online to ship to site for $38.03. Manager stated that website says prices vary in-store and this is why he can't honor online pricing. WTH?!

It should be very specific about pricing, how much prices may vary, that online pricing is not honored in-store and what it means to pick up "today" because I agree, it's misleading in many ways.

if it is in stock then just go down and buy it, duh. Seems simple enough and would have saved you a lot of pointless aggravation. :p

It's frequently faster to just go get it in store, since they never have anyone in their departments and I've waited thirty minutes before just to get someone to acknowledge me, and longer for someone who knew how to get the item out of the back to get it for me.

Further, if you think you are getting someone else to do your shopping, what do you think Walmart does? They use this program to sell all the stuff in torn / ripped boxes to people who have already paid for it without seeing it. Ordering Pu2D will get you the worst item possible for the money so that Walmart moves the 'good' items to people who actually spend time in the store and buy more.

I always end up with the 'dent' merchandise and have to waste more time doing an exchange in the service desk lines than anything since they won't just direct swap it.

At my store, we just pull the merchandise from the shelf, pulling a Pick Up Today order at my store is usually my job, and I try to choose the best conditioned item I can, and, the customer has the right to refuse the pickup and I can have a refund issued to their card or give them a cash refund right at the Site to Store counter, or, simply go over to the shelf and pull another one if they want to exchange the exact same item.
