I read a Walmart flyer advertising :
"One time offer - 26"RCA flatscreen TV for $476.00. Sale dates 11/2 -11/10

I went to the store on 11/5, and there were no tv's as advertised. The Manager said there were only 4, and people lined up at midnight the 1st day of the sale. They would not be getting any more.

I said there was no information in the ad that indicated "limited stock" or anything along those lines. He said the statement "one time offer" covered that.
I drove 20 miles, as I live in a rural area, so I told him I was angry about the mis-information. He then asked what I wanted, and indicated that I was perhaps "playing the game" to get something out of it.

I could not believe how rude & insulting that statement was. I said I only wanted the TV that was advertised at the advertised price. I walked out, determined to let as many people know how wrong this advertising is.

Oh grow up

AUTHOR: Jason tillo - (U.S.A.)

If you are not willing to wait at midnight like the others than you don't get the promotion.  You are an adult, and an adult should know that TV's don't magically appear in thin air.  If they did then they would not cost as much as they do.  The world does not revolve around you.  You are an adult not a four year old child.  They do not need to save one for you because you are too lazy to wait in line.

#2 UPDATE Employee

I'm not sure about that...

AUTHOR: Paco - (U.S.A.)

Walmart advertisements in the paper may or may not reflect your local Walmart's on-hands. The ads are produced reigonally, not from individual stores, so any store within, let's say, 250 miles may or may not have that in-stock. It is also improtant to remember that Walmart will focus on a community's needs (based from store's physical size compared to how much merchandise can fit AND financial gains the store will see from carrying certain merchandise.) If you look at the very bottom on the back of the ads, it will mention that merchandise might NOT be carried at your local Walmart because of the aforementioned reasons. Not all stores sell the same thing all the time or in mass quantities.

To formally rebuttal, Walmart Stores, Inc., to my knowledge, has not falsified any information regarding any advertised products, goods or services without a proper disclaimer nor has practiced any "bait & switch technique."
