Just venting

I was looking for a new TV. Went to Walmarts website for found 1 I liked scrolling down to read reviews and it shows the same TV with a $100 gift card for the same price, so I clicked on it. Yep same model and everything cool, the catch not available for pick up. We'll see about that go to the store and ask if they match internet prices, yes they do as long as its the same model. I guess they thought they were going to get me there, I showed them the Tv I was looking at and the 1 with the gift card. Suddenly they they can't match it. Now I'm pissed because they changed from what I was told a minute ago. Needless to say I got back to my computer ordered it online and am have the 1 with the gift card shipped and wife is going to buy the 1 they in the store without the gift card and when the one I ordered get's here I'll return 1 to the store. Needless to say after chewing the manager and having the manager follow to the door trying get me to calm down ( I'm still bitching about them changing their story) , I got to the doors and told the manager to F-off and I may possibly be banned from that store.

I feel your pain. More years ago than I care to remember I bought a washing machine from Sears. A couple days later same machine goes on sale. I called requesting the sale price, haggle haggle haggle, no luck. Told them that I was very unhappy with the performance of my machine and told them to come pick it up and refund my money.
The person I was talking to figured it out and gave me the sale price.

It's pretty hard (sad) to get banned from Wal Mart! Good Luck!

Being banned from Wally World wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing. It would take the Budweiser Clydesdale horses to drag me into one of those stores...

Thats down side to living in small town, the lack of places to shop. My wife a mil came back from their walmart and said there was 3 cop cars there when they got there. She said she overheard the employees talking about a madman yelling and screaming in the store, I pretty sure she's messing with me about the madman part. The cop car part I believe but I doubt they were there because of me, though I may have melted a couple of snowflakes. Now I have learn how to work this damn TV.

If I can get it somewhere else locally I will, if I can wait for it to be shipped even better.

Nothing good about WalMart. I haven't stepped in one in over 20 years and never will again. Consider yourself lucky if they ban you.

I must be missing something... but why purchase a second TV just to return it?
