Has anybody who bought from Wal-Mart at full price managed to get a refund of the difference? I just spent 30 minutes being refused repeatedly because the price isn't in anybody's 'ad' and the in-store price still hasn't dropped.
Holding onto it, unopened, for a few more days...
I bought a Touchpad 32GB from Walmart last night.
I stayed up all night looking at the online deals and reading the SD forum. It was around 3AM my time I read Walmart update their pricing and some people who paid full price were able to get price matched.
I felt a little weird driving to Walmart at 3:30 AM to ask for a price match for the tablet I bought last night, but I figured I'd sleep better once it was done. Sadly however the employee at the store could not do it because their system hadn't updated the price yet.
I got some sleep and went back to Walmart around Noon. The first employee in customer service I talked didn't think she could do it, because she was told this tablet was exempt from the 7 day price match policy (a chill ran down my spine). She talked to a second person that also said the same thing. However a third person happened to be standing there and she said it was fine.
Not sure why two of the employees thought they couldn't price match this tablet, fortunately it seems that third person was the manager, so they did it. That first employee told me she had already turned away 2 other people earlier trying to get price matches. So I guess if they say no, you might need to ask to talk to a store manager?
