Walmart Says Pricing Glitch Will Not Be Honoured, But $10 Giftcards Will Be Offered

/ 4 years ago


According to Softpedia Walmart will not be honouring  orders that were the result of a pricing glitch. This pricing glitch saw monitors and projectors worth multiple hundreds of dollars selling from $8.85 and a Treadmill worth $600 was being sold for just $33. As expected consumers wasted no time in getting online and buying up hundreds, probably thousands, of these items with pricing glitches. Due to the volume of the orders Walmart simply cannot consider honouring the orders. However, it isn’t all bad news for Walmart customers because they are offering $10 gift cards to customers who tried to make a purchase as partial compensation for the fact they will not get their price-glitch order.

“The issue has been resolved and is open for all,” the company said in a statement. “Given the wide discrepancy in pricing, we are notifying customers who ordered these items that their orders have been cancelled and that they’ll be refunded in full.”

    • What returns? If the company refuses to honour the sale then you’ve got no product to return?
