Did anyone get their packages from the Walmart mixup yet?

Yep, just as I expected. You didn't really think Wal-Mart would let people have expensive electronics/computer components at an 85%+ discount did you? This is a company that squeezes its suppliers to save every cent they can, surely they wouldn't let this slide.

Bump.

I can't be the only person who's got my stuff from this.

OK so I found a little more information from a website that says its a lawyer: http://community.lawyers.com/forums/t/124482.aspx

Basically if the gap is big enough they can make you return it at their expense, but it depends on state law.

The gap was probably big enough here, and even more so for a GTX 680 selling for $45.

So if they try to actually communicate with me about getting it back I might have to give it back, but I'll try and give them a hard time if they do. I already opened it and it's loading up with data now.

I'm probably just gonna let FedEx take the next one if they send for package retrieval.

Why in the world would you be "loading it up with data" when there's the possibility that you would have to return it? Not only will it be a wasted effort, but a future purchaser could then potentially access your data that's on the drive (assuming you don't have time to do a zero wipe).

Only people that got anything from the mix up, was the ones that used store pick up. You really think someone is going to sell you a $600 graphics card for $40? Even a company as rich as walmart is not going to purposely hemorrhage money like that

I had it registered and everything by the time the retrieval guy had come, so I figure it's not really in a returnable state at that point. And they haven't communicated with me at all about it so I'm going to assume all is well.

If they tell me that I need to return it anyways I'm just gonna tell them I need to wipe it first. They can't force me to hand over a device with my own personal data on it.

Just checked the status on my next one:

Delivery refused - Unable to deliver shipment - Returning to shipper


So yeah. Anyone hasn't gotten their ****, isn't going to.

I am guessing wal-mart isn't going to find it worth while to fight for some of these objects that where already delivered.. my guess is that they are going to get back what they can and cut their losses....

Hopefully I am right and you get to keep their stuff...

Yeah that's what I'm hoping for. Everything done so far has likely been automated so I'll see if they actually try and contact me. My money is on no.
