Placed an order on walmart.com with the option to pick up the item in the store. I ordered before 6 p.m. and it said the item would be available for pick-up in 4 hours. Received my confirmation email. An hour later I received a text and an email that said my order was delayed...
"Thanks for shopping on Walmart.com. We received your order request and are verifying your payment and other order information. This verification is routine and done to assure the safety of your financial information.

email from us within 48 hours containing the updated information and approximate pickup
time for your order."
Are you kidding? The only reason I ordered online with in store pick up was because 1) it's cheaper to purchase it online vs the store and 2) to pick it up within 4 hours of ordering. Now they delayed the order, customer service said most likely the order will be released within 24 hours. I only had transportation for 24 hours...if I can't pick up my order I will need to have the item shipped creating further delays. This is unheard of...not to mention false advertising. And besides the fact that no where during the order process does this say that this could be a possibility. Buyer beware!
