Back in September I preordered the Xbone/Watchdogs bundle from Walmart online.

About a week after Watchdogs was annonced elayed, Walmart called me to ask if I wanted a different bundle. I opted instead for hardware only and they told me they would credit me the 49.99 difference.

So November 22nd comes and goes and I still have no Xbone. I call customer service and they say it will be delivered on November 26th.

On November 27th I call them again and they tell me they don't know when it will ship. I told them to please cancel the order as I was a bit pissed and felt even if I had to wait till Xmas I'd rather walk into a store to get one.

The customer service people were quick and professional and told me the order had been cancelled.

fast forward to yesterday morning, the mailman drops a box on my porch which sure enough is an Xbone from Walmart.

I open it up to find a blank invoice (lists package contents as "1 x _______________")

I still have no charge on my credit card.

Now I would not be surprised if the charge goes through 3 weeks from now. I doubt Walmart got to where they are by making mistakes like this. However I will keep my fingers crossed that this was one of those rare errors in my favour.

I actually feel a bit guilty (assuming the charge never goes through) I'm actually a Walmart defender (probably because I've never worked for them)

Find out what Walmart considers acceptable loss from inventory shrinkage and you'll feel a lot less guilty.

At any rate they can request it back or request for you to pay for it now you got it. But it's Walmart so they probably wont. If you're cool with stealing an Xbone from Walmart you'll probably get away with it just fine.

Ha ha.

That's funny if you think this one anomaly is going to be a blip on Walmart's bottom line let alone the economy.

That's cool. Amazon accidentally sent me two and billed for one. I sold one at a profit of $100 and took the other one.

So yeah, I actually got paid to take mine.
