Walmart’s Black Friday deception draws flood of complaints

Walmart Customers from around the country are complaining that the deals Walmart promised on Black Friday were given away ahead of time in a pre-sale procedure many are calling a scam because it was not made known to the public.

In Tracy, CA, customers who arrived before dawn to snap up the $198 eMachines laptop that was advertised as being on sale between 5am-10am discovered the stores entire inventory of 37 units had been sold the day before in a non-advertised pre-sale. The manager admitted there was no way for the general public to know about the pre-sale unless they called the store (and obviously there was no way for most people to know they needed to do that), and apparently had not told the line of customers that started forming around 3am that the laptop was not available.

In Iron Mountain, MI, shoppers who arrived to purchase the electronic deals advertised to go on sale at 5am, such as an Emerson TV and the aforementioned laptop, were informed that all electronics had sold out at 3:30am despite the fact they had been advertised as not available until 5am.

Shoppers in Harrisburg, PA and Kosciusko, Miss discovered that the eMachines laptop had sold out there by 2:30am as well. It seems the deception was done nationwide rather than confined to a few stores. I’m sure the FTC will take notice!

Why Walmart decided to ignore its ad and deceive customers remains to be seen, but that’s exactly what they did. They advertised items as going on sale at 5am and then turned around and sold them all earlier with no notice. Here’s what their Black Friday press release said:

“Beginning at 5 a.m. on Nov. 27, store items from electronics to toys to apparel will feature prices that are sure to be at the top of gift lists this holiday season. Starting today, November 23, all of these special values can be viewed online at Walmart.com. Hit the Stores Friday Morning: $3 sleepwear for the family, a $298 laptop and more, Walmart’s day-after-Thanksgiving event from 5 a.m. to 11 a.m. highlights the gifts moms want for their family. All items are available in limited quantities. Sorry, no rainchecks.”

What’s the deal Walmart? Deceptive advertising is a big no-no so you’d better have a heck of an explanation. There is no excuse for misleading customers.

If you had an experience like this at your local Walmart, please tell us about it!

    I arrived at the Wal-Mart at Boardwalk in Kansas City, Mo at 4:30 a.m prepared to stand in line to buy the e-machine laptops only to find out they had handed out tickets at 2 a.m. I e-mailed Wal-Mart telling them that was false advertising since their ad said 5-11 a.m. and in essence they were sold at 2 a.m. Needless to say I did not hear back from them

    I to fell to the rushing crouds at walmart. I arrived around 3:30am hoping to get three of the laptops for 198.00 we have six childern and I thought that it would be great they could share, two children to one computer. When asking where to go to wait for the laptop I was told that they were gone before midnight.
    I went about 20 miles to another walmart just to be told the same thing. What kind of sale is over before it starts. I cried for a while and then got very livid. The hopes of giving my childern laptops and webkins are over due to the economy and my husband being in sales. I can promise I will never set foot into another walmart store again. We will shop every where but Walmart. Six children they need alot of things and children learn by habit. If I dont shop there they will not either. So just support your local economy and screw walmart like they did us. All of this happened in Goose Creek and Mt. Pleasant South Carolina.

    On November 27, 2009 at 4:05 am at Wal-Mart Supercenter Store #1886
    6520 Carlisle Pike/Suite 550, Mechanicsburg, PA 17050, to my surprise there were
    no items in creates with plastic wraps in the aisles.

    Faithfully on black Friday Walmart Only for years I get there around 4:00 am…Yes I remember the times you had to beat the herds that was something then things changed for the better.
    You could go in before 5:00 am stand at the aisles next to the creates and at the electronics you had to form a line because the cashers had the products behind them.. hey that was nice because the I got to talked with other customers that were in front or back of you… there were times I got recipes and so forth .. I liked it. Then all of the sudden your heard the announcement over the speakers it is now 5:00 am and the assistances would cut through the plastic wraps and put the items we wanted and the cashers started handing out the products.

    This time… November 27, 2009 you had to ask where is A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H, and K went to one of the assistances with no name one his tag asked where aisle E and C where was helpful approached aisle E …noticed customers sleeping on the floor, some were sitting on folding chairs in the small roped area… another assistance with no name tag says to me there is no more tickets to give can‘t you see I closed the this area It looked like there were approximate 50 people or less “hmmmm” But …. In a nice way…”because I worked as customer service with Department of Revenue for 31 years collected over Millions of Dollars for Revenue…received many beautiful letter from taxpayers, cpa’s Attorneys and CEO’s …I was there to help these customers“….. All I stated in your advertisement your opened at 5:00 am and these people must have been here way before 5:00am never said you can come in before to get to the LIMITED Items and form a line … told me sorry and please leave, well the people that were behind me were not so nice…I really don’t like that there is enough stress right now cause of the economy , job loss and war.

    To my disappointment I came home empty handed for the first time in years!!!!

    As a grandparent and retired my walmart charge was zero balance called to see if my charge was still active which I called and hoped someone put it in their history on the PC I had to when I worked as a customer service cause I don’t wanted you to think I’m making false statements to you. Now I want to get back ..as a grandparent and retiree …My one daughter lost her job son-in-law took loss in pay and being proud of my three grandkids who are special gifted kids….never received a B on their report card.. I wanted to purchase two eME627 Laptop Computer for $198 and one TV 32” LCD HDTV $248 for one of my other grandchild. And I understand you did not lie when your advertisement stated Limited quantities but I’m thinking why didn’t Walmart state very few quantities reason is your aisles where empty and never I felt so misrepresented. I’m not going to say I’ll never shop at Walmart cause I do as a consumer you guys always have great deals! I just wanted you to know How I felt. If I have known your quantities where very low I would at least had a back up cause Best Buys had laptops for $198.00 but it was to late to get there and may have not come home empty handed which I have done before for back ups because I had time…Walmart has always been my first choice for Black Friday only once did I have to have a back up and I had time to get to another store because I get there at 4:00 am .

    I came home empty handed. I was very applaud what they did…I don't think they received their supplies…the aisles were totally empty.

    Sorry My English is not real good….I just wanted to get this off my chest and letting you know it really hurt to go empty handed

  • Robin

    I had called Walmart Thanksgiving day to find out what I need to do to be in line for a laptop and was told that customers could start forming lines at 3am.
    I arrived at the Walmart in Winston-Salem, NC around 1:15am (Black Friday)to kill time to make sure I would not have to rush and insure my place in line for a ticket only to find out people had been waiting in line since 11:00pm and that all the laptops were sold out before the sale even began at 5:00. I drove to another Walmart in hopes this was not the case at that store. Only to arrive to find SOLD OUT BEFORE SALE BEGAIN!!!

    WALMART OWES ITS' CUSTOMERS AND APOLOGY!… Very deceptive and BAD BUSINESS!

  • steve

    I drove over an hour away and spent money on a motel room the night before to get a $298 laptop. I got there at 4:15 only to be told they had been sold "hours ago". What they did was not right!!

  • amy

    I was at WalMart for there Black Friday sale in Cumming, Ga., at 3:30. I was going for the $199 Laptop for my children,and was told that they were gone by midnight. They only had 32 laptops available, and were gone before the sale. What the did was wrong and they should be charged with false advertisement.

  • Chris

    Don't fret just sign up for walmart e-mail. I got the same $298.00 computer from walmart at a one day saturday sale that they announced through e-mail. This sale was about 2 weeks before black friday, it is the same computer that they had for black friday. Each store had 10 computers for the one day sale. My husband and I arrived at 5am and the sale started at 8 am. We were the first ones there. I am almost certain that walmart will do this again before Christmas arrives. I to wanted to get a $198.00 e-machine laptop for my daughter, but that did not happen. When they have another one day sale, I will just get her a laptop then.

  • kym

    the laptops were not sold they were just taken i live in connecticut and they had announced on the radio stations that they would be handing out tickets @12 midnight they had 43 laptops we bought 2 however you missed nothing they are no good they function ok but can say they are worth the price. i will be bringing them back tomorrow.a chid wold have a lot of fun with it not a teenager though

  • Kelly

    I arrived at walmart on black friday at 2 am only to be told that the 198 laptop had already been given out. Got in line for the 298 laptop and while everyone else in the store was allowed to shop we had to stand in line for 3 hours only to get a ticket and then be told at the counter that the ticket was not certain and there were no more laptops. I missed out on other shopping and did not get 1 of the 26 laptops available despite me having a ticket. i was told. OWWW WELL

  • Robyn

    I wanted to purchase a DS lite for my girls. I got there well before 5am only to be told they had a ticket system, and the tickets were given away the night before!!

    What a scam walmart. As someone who spends a LOT of money there every month, I am not pleased. This should have CLEARLY been stated in the advertisement, and for the first time ever, I left almart empty handed. My Christmas money will be spent elsewhere, in a more honest store.

  • Susan Jafari

    I too went for the emachines laptop. I asked on Tuesday before Thanksgiving at the Walmart customer service counter what needed to be done to get the black friday deals. I was told get there before 5 am on black friday morning. I got there at 4 am and was told the emachine, ipod touch 8g, beauty rest 500 thread count sheets and down pillows were all gone by 10 pm the night before. The bedding ad said prices good all day Friday, wouldn't this imply they would have stock before 5am. The assistant manager tried to sell us more expensive laptops and tv's we did not want. I believe this is called "bait and switch". A waste of time and gas. I didn't buy anything and I needed groceries. Forget it walmart.- bah humbug. By the way, bought the ipod touch on amazon for less and got a free $25.00 gift card less hassle, better shopping experience. Thank you Jeff Bazos.

    I arrived at Walmart at 10:30 Thanksgiving night. I asked about the $298.00 computer sale and was told a line was already forming and to get in line. I told the salesperson I wished to buy 2 laptops. I was told that was alright. Throughout the evening and into the morning we were counted time and again to make sure we stayed in line. At 5 a.m., the laptops arrived and Bre, the assistant manager told me that they were limiting laptops to 1 per person in line. No mention of that in their ad! I asked to speak to a manager, when he (Dave) arrived he told me I could leave with the one laptop I had or be escorted and they would take back my one laptop. Families were allowed to bring other family members and scarf up several laptops. I am a single father of two young children aged 5 and 6. I felt discriminated against and intimidated. If they are going to form lines early, they should let the public know, if they are limiting products to 1 per person, they should have to put this in their advertisement as well. Staples ads clearly stated 1 laptop per person. Walmart used deceptive ad practices. I notified the FTC and Wlamart. Any attorneys want to handle a class action suit?

  • Lori

    FALSE ADVERTISING!!!!!! Went to local Wal-Mart at 4:30 a.m. (Paris, TN) to purchase laptop – was told that all "armbands" were given out at 2 a.m. – EVEN THOUGH THE SALE WAS NOT SUPPOSED TO START UNTIL 5 A.M. !!!!! WHAT KIND OF BUSINESS PRACTICE IS THIS??? I, like many other folks do the bulk of my Christmas shopping on the Friday after Thanksgiving – and thanks to my experience this morning with Walmart did not purchase a single gift that store and will not spend any money with WalMart unless I have no other choice!!!!

  • Jamie

    I went to Walmart in Helena, Montana and the same thing had happened to me. A few days before I talked to an employee and he gave me a list of how many and what they had. On the list it said that they had 33 Emachine computers for $198. I got there earl because I wanted to get all of my 6 kids laptops for Christmas. When I got to the location I was told that they were all sold out. I figured I would have to go and wait in line for the item which was fine. I asked where the line is for the computers and they told me that they were all sold out. On the ad it says that the sale started at 5AM. How the heck can all the computers be sold before the sale. I think that is a bunch of crap. If I would have known that then I would have got there earlier and got a "ticket" so my kids could have got there laptops for Christmas. All I can say is that WalMart *** and I know that a lot of people aren't happy with them right now. I typed in WalMart Corporate and wrote a complaint. I don't think it is going to do any good but I wanted to say something.

  • Jennifer

    I arrived at the Walmart in New London, WI (not a super center and in a very rural town that has never been open 24 hours before) hoping to get the emachine laptop and the Nintendo DS Lite around 3:30 am. While making my way to a line (which, by the way you had to ACTIVELY seek out help in order to find out where your item was, how to go about getting it, etc) a woman next to me asked what I was hoping to get. I told her the DS and the laptop. She said she had come for the midnight sale and that by the time she got there at midnight all the "tickets" (aka rainchecks) had been handed out for the laptops. This meant you could not buy one on sale if you wanted one. How is it that you can advertise something being on sale from 5 am until 11 am, but hand out rain checks for them the night before? Had I known that I would have gone the night before to get my items. On the Walmart facebook page there is definitely a very angry crowd. The ones who got rain checks and their items say that we are all being cry babys. How about give the general public a fair chance and let them know they will essentially be putting these items in other people's carts the night before? (Even though they are just tickets) I haven't done Black Friday shopping in about 5 years. This year I decided to give it another chance. I wish I would have avoided Walmart altogether and gave my business to a company who actually has ethics.

    FALSE ADVERTISMENT!!!!!!!!!!

    OUR WALMART GAVE OUT ARM BANDS TO PURCHASE YOUR ELECTRONICE ITEMS AND DIDN’T ADVERISE THIS ANYWERE!!!!!!!

    We arrived around 4:00 am at out local Wal-Mart today hoping to get a few of the great electronic deals. Only to find out they were already sold out! Our Wal-Mart started a new procedure this year for selling the electronics and didn’t advertise it anywhere.

    At 2:00am they started handing out armbands for the products you wanted and then you had to come back in-between 5:00 and 6:00 am to pick up. By the time we got to the store at 4:00am all of the wristbands were giving out for the laptops ( the $198, $298, and $398).

    You had to have a wristband for any electronic item and if you got a wristband for one type of electronic item you were not allowed to get a wristband for another. For example, if you got a wrist band for a blue ray DVD player you were not allowed a wristband for a TV. However, if you got a wrist band for the blue ray you could purchase as many as you wanted. (You could walk out with as many blue ray DVD players you wanted but no other electronics)

    Where the LOGIC in this system? How can they advertise sales to start at 5:00am but items are already SOLD OUT at 4:00 am? How can they advertise items in the flyer on sale but then limit what items you can purchase? I can understand putting limits of one product per person but not limiting the type of electronic you can buy. (my mom wanted to purchase the blue ray player and a TV and was told she couldn’t get the TV wristband because she had on a blue ray wristband.

  • James Hood

    I urge anyone who had this type of experience to contact Walmart corporate offices and to also contact the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) at http://www.ftc.gov and make a complaint to them as well. Maybe if there is enough of an outcy over the way Walmart placed deceptive advertising, we can get the government to enforce the law regarding it. Walmart was downright deceptive and fraudulent. I know this same practice occurred in 2009 and it happened again in 2010. Hopefully the government will do something about it. As for me, I am boycotting Walmart and urging friends and family to do the same.

  • Megan Clark

    I came across Walmart's great Black Friday sale and decided I was going to get one of the 32" TV and the $198 laptop for my 2 daughters. I noticed that the TV was available online. Knowing that the sale was due to begin at 5AM in store (BIGGEST LIE EVER) I wasn't sure exactly when the on-line sale was due to start so I had gone on 8 times from 12AM to 2:45AM then came to conclusion that it must be going online at 5AM. In the mean time I got ready to go to the store to get the lap-top set my husbands alarm clock for 4:45 so he could go online to order the TV(assuming it was going to begin at 5AM) , however before I left at 3:10 I glanced at the computer once more to find out the on-line sale began and the TV's were OUT OF STOCK Somehow between 2:45 & 3:15 they were all gone. (Mind you it had NOTHING to do with being on the westcoast b/c after reading all of the disappointed customers post from all over the US it had nothing to do with time) WHen I arrived at the store at 3:15 to purchase the $198 laptop there were tons of people with both the $198 E-Machine Laptops and the $198 Emerson TV. I was beyond disappointed. I have shopped at Walmart for the past 6 years on Black Friday and stood in the cold all of the 6 years for them to open in the wee hours of the morning and have always gotten what I went for when the doors opened. Why Walmart would mis-lead EVERYONE with the bogus information is beyond me. What I do know is that I have a 3month old and I have purchased all his formula, diapers and baby needs that are available there as well as all the things my family needs. I even food-shop at the local Super Walmart nearby. I have made a promise to myself to NEVER set foot in there again after there dishonesty. Initally, I had assumed the walmart I had gone to did this and it was an isolated incident…only to find out that it appears to be company wide. Until Walmart makes this right, which is unlikely today I will no longer be a loyal customer….Hope others do the same…Maybe it will make a difference. I will be contacting the FTC and Better Business Bureau

  • kelly draeger

    i went to get the 198 laptop i was the 34th person in line the manager told me more than once i would be ok they had 80 laptops when it came time too hand them out they said they only had 30 people were very upset so they gave the next 50 people in line a rain check i was second in line to get one they said they would get them before christmas or give us something equal value i have called everyday sense now they say its not something they carrie so they wont get any in it was a black friday special and rain checks they dont have to make right i fell the rain check was just to shut us up not there way of making things wright but i wont shut up i will call tv stations and radio stations and whho ever else will listen cause know i dont have what my daughter wants for christmas

  • kelly draeger

    walmart needs to make things right to those they promised

  • Olin Rainwater

    This was both false advertisement and deceptive business practices for the purpose of selling higher priced items to frustrated consumers. Why is Walmart above the law and guarded from accountability.

  • MCM

    There was a scam in New Orleans, YES once again depending on who you know you knew about the drama of them passing out wrist bands way before 5am. How unfair was this for those folks that headed out at 1am. Who knew about this but the employees and their friends. Out right WRONG!. Wrist bands who came up with this stupid idea, it was not the Essence feast or the amusement park. I am upset and walmart is no longer the place to shop.

  • drjekyllhyde

    I was in line at 9pm for the 40 inch tv's. I was counted as person number 25 two times. The employees moved our line two times around the isles, then suddenly i was number 85. ok……I stood in line for 3 hours only to find out that there were 32 tv's. needless to say, all of the people around me and including myself were escorted out of the store by a police officer because we demanded an explanation as to what happened. The manager just didn't want to admit they messed up, and KICKED US OUT!!!! I will NEVER step foot into a wal-mart again!

  • drjekyllhyde

    anyone want to organize a class action suit for wal-mart for their deception??? WE are the masses, and they depend on OUR money. Let's show "corporate america" who's really in charge!!!! drjekyllhyde@hotmail.com. START THE REVOLUTION!!

  • jcbjmichaelis

    I also went early to get a laptop only to find out they had already handed them out and told the customers they could not check out until 12am with them. It was the only reason I went to the sale and of course I can now not find a deal even close which means my children lose out. The sales people said that customers just took them without permission so they were told they couldn't check out until 12 am when the sale was to begin. If you ask me they should have kicked people out that didn't follow the rules. It's basically stealing.

  • Cory mash

    Like many other holiday shopper , I waited as instructed by the walmart ad in line for close to two hours to take advantage of the black Friday sales on the 40 inch emerson tvs. This sale was suppose to begin at 10 pm and item was to be made available to the public to purcase. Believing I was going to better my chances of purchasing the product, I went to wait in line an hour and a half early. I asked one of the employees where line started, he simply replied ” Don’t bother, we have been sold out of tvs, since 6 pm?” Obviously confused I then asked “How so? The sale doesn’t start til 10 pm.” He then retorts ” Oh we gave out ticks earlier for purchase earlier this evening. You should of came then.” When I proceeded to ask this man how is that legal, he then attempted upsell me a even smaller tv for a hundred dollars more. How can Corporation get away with plaster the television and flyers with a time specific sale if

  • cindyjo

    Well at least the majority on here were smarter than me, I too wanted the $178 laptop and ignored anything about this register card or wrist band nonsense. I went about it the old fashioned way and relied on their store ad, which listed the aforementioned laptop was on sale beginning at 8pm thanksgiving night. My husband and I got there at 7:45 pm and of course we were about 12 hours too late. Why the hell did they even advertise separate event times in their ads when they knew the laptops would be gone as soon as they came off the truck??? Wal-Mart needs to redeem themselves here!

  • Sherri

    The Walmart in Camby, IN was advertising 50″ Emerson for $288.00 to be on going on sale at 8:00 Thanksgiving night. We arrived at the store at 6:00 and after waiting for 1 1/2 hours for the sale to start we were informed that they gave out wrist bands for this product earlier at 1:00 and that there were no more left. There was no reason for them to presell this item before the advertised sale time. I couldn’t tell you how many customers there were very upset. Walmart just proved that it doesn’t care about it’s customers nor any responsibility to it’s customers. You don’t advertise something and then just change your mind and do what ever you want. Walmart has no loyalty to it’s customers.

  • steve

    Same story 2014 159.00 Laptops go on sale at 8 pm waited in line 2 1/2 hours then told they were in another location and sold out hours ago. Btw nobody knew were they were
    waited in line which a manager said. Dont think I would ever buy there again
