Updated X2: Deal Alert: Walmart Selling T-Mobile Galaxy Note For $349.99, No Contract

Update: Sounds like the deal may have been short-lived as many of you are complaining of canceled orders. Perhaps the pricing was a mistake and the influx of orders alerted someone to the problem.  Walmart says the price was incorrectly stated and has canceled all existing orders. Boo. 

No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you, Walmart is in fact selling the T-Mobile Galaxy Note for $349.99, no contract. They are also selling it for free with a new contract, add-a-line and $29.99 with a qualifying upgrade. In other words, they are decimating T-Mobile’s own corporate pricing.

Yeah, there is almost zero reason to pass this up if the Galaxy Note is on your Radar.

    Take a look at Walmart’s pricing/advertising policy:

    Sorry guys (and gals). Looks like Walmart’s web masters  entered the wrong price for the Note, so Walmart is exercising its right to cancel the orders.

      While Walmart.com strives to provide accurate pricing information, pricing or typographical errors may occur. Walmart.com cannot confirm the price of an item until after you order. In the event that an item is listed at an incorrect price due to an error in pricing, Walmart.com shall have the right, at Walmart.com’s sole discretion, to refuse or cancel any orders placed for that item. In the event that an item is mispriced, Walmart.com may, at Walmart.com’s discretion, either contact you for instructions or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.”

      Perhaps BUT don’t lie and say the consumer requested a return. Say YOU the merchant initiated a return due to an ERROR THEY made not a false request. OWN your shit ! Don’t pacify your integrity as a hopes to remain in business.

      I’ve seen many online companies cancel orders, but toship then out then recall the shipments…well that’s a new one.

  • http://www.facebook.com/unfazedrebel Jé Be (Here but Gone)

    On the phone with Fedex…. :( please come tomorrow I’ve waited long enough. And I emailed Wal-Mart for the games. Fedex has nothing to add other than it should be delivered still tomorrow (I guess) but yes so what we all jumped on the deal  price why wouldn’t we. I remember being a cashier a 14 stuff rung up wrong all the time we had to give it to the customer for the sale price for OUR mistake. Wal-Mart can afford to pay for THIS mistake now honor the price or I refuse to patronize liars (lol j/k) but I expected perhaps a whoopsy email or a request to charge additional funds or even once you receive the item return it or be charged more but even then still is their error so they should eat it. But to lie and say the consumer requested a return is a new low….. 

    • predation

      Just got an email from customer relations stating that I’ll be getting a refund.

      >:-(

      • http://www.facebook.com/unfazedrebel Jé Be (Here but Gone)

        This has got to be a joke LOL I wonder if they will OWN up to it in a press release or at least acknowledge it and not try to cover it up with false return request 

  • http://www.facebook.com/unfazedrebel Jé Be (Here but Gone)

    Chat people ‘Susan’  wal-mart said the orders were put on hold until they receive approval from “higher management to process it further and they have recalled the package and it has been returned to them ; however once they receive confirmation from higher management they will ship it out again and to wait up to 24hrs for email updates

    • pirateswife

      come on..Theres probally only 50 or less people who caught it and ordered it. Just let us get out devices and chalk it up to mistakes happen. WE deserve it considering all the walmart chats and hassle they have given us.

    Just got an email from Walmart canceling my upgrade order stating that there was a pricing error.  Guess $29.95 for an upgrade was really too good to be true.  If you look at Walmart’s pricing terms it looks like they do not have to honor the mistaken price.  Oh well looks like I will wait for the One X+

  • bonnierz

    Just got my cancellation email.  Said the item had been priced incorrectly, and they were cancelling in accordance with their policy.

  • Alda

    cancelled :/

  • http://www.uragon.com/ Bogart

    Well, theres all the hope of getting a good deal. I too got the email of DOOM. They cancelled my order. At least we tried right?

  • Raul

     Just received my email too. I was speaking with customer support and Majdi assured me my order will be shipped tomorrow and as soon as he said that my order went from processing to cancelled.

  • BeeJay

    I will never buy anything else from Walmart

    • Zach Mauch

       I’d bet my house that you don’t follow through

        It’s like you people have noting else better to do with your lives. 

      • BeeJay

         You will be homeless then cause I stand behind my word and there are too many other stores I can go to.

    • Sanman202

      It was a mistake on their part and they corrected the price. That’s all there is to it. 

  • Dreadlocdiva

    I’ve just received an email from Walmart stating that the order has been cancelled due to a pricing error and now the contract upgrade price is $349.99.

  • Spartan087_

     I know a chat log was already posted, hopefully something useful comes out of this “Special” team. but I’m not getting my hopes up.. :/

    Das : Hi XXXXXXX. Thank you for contacting our chat support group of Walmart Wireless. I’d be glad to help you to Save Money and Live Better.

    Das : How are you today?

    ME: Could be better honestly.

    Das : I will check and assist you with the information required to get the order processed.

    Das : For security reasons, could you please verify the last four digits of your Social Security Number?

    ME: XXXX

    Das : Thank you for the verification.

    Das : Please allow me 2 minutes to review your order.

    Das : Thanks for your patience.

    Das : Unfortunately, the order has been canceled by the system.

    Das : As the selected device Samsung Galaxy Note is listed at an incorrect price due to an error in pricing, this order has been canceled by the system.

    ME: Ok, but that’s not my fault. I never canceled my order, so I’d like it sent out to me for the $30 agreed upon.

    Das : I apologize the order cannot be reinstated as there was error in pricing for the selected device.

    Das : You can certainly try to place another order with us. The information will be reviewed and verified by the system for further processing.

    ME: So my inconvience means nothing to WalMart? Neither does an agreement? What is the big deal with one phone being sent out??

    Das : Please accept my sincere and unreserved apology for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

    Das : I am checking the order information for you. Please allow me 2 more minutes.

    ME: I feel a little better for the remorse. But it doesn’t exclude that fact of this being wrong.

    ME: I did everything correctly. So please send my phone.

    Das : Thanks for your patience.

    Das : According to the updates, the order cannot be reinstated.

    Das : Walmart.com shall have the right, at Walmart.com’s sole discretion, to refuse or cancel any orders placed for that item which is listed at an incorrect price due to an error in pricing.

    ME: Is there a manager I could speak to possibly? Not that you haven’t been helpful, but all i want is my phone. Policy or not this isn’t right.

    Das : I apologize for inconvenience caused to you.

    Das : May I have your best contact number so that I can arrange a call back for you related to the order?

    ME: XXXXXXXXXX

    Das : Thanks. I am forwarding the order to specialized team. You will get a call back for the order information within 4 hours.

    ME: Thank you sir.

    Das : You’re welcome.

    Das : Is there anything else I can assist you with regarding the order?

    ME: Nope that’s all I need.

    Das : Thank you for contacting our chat support team.

    Das : Have a great day!

    • AnnoyedAlready

      Why are you going through such great lengths? CLEARLY it was an error, and Walmart is in no position to lose money just because followers of a blog tried to take advantage of a pricing mistake.

      “Is there a manager I could speak to possibly? Not that you haven’t been helpful, but all i want is my phone. Policy or not this isn’t right.”

      This isn’t right? It’s not right that Walmart made a pricing mistake and you should take advantage and feel obligated to exploit that mistake?

      It also says in their “Terms of Use” …
      “In the event that an item is listed at an incorrect price due to an error in pricing, Walmart.com shall have the right, at Walmart.com’s sole discretion, to refuse or cancel any orders placed for that item.”
      Give it up already, the way you’re acting “isn’t right.”

      • Fuckyou

        Honestly, and I think you are legally correct but wrong. In your “typographical error” scenario when you walk up to a cashier they catch the error. Also, since that is a paper flyer they have no way to fix it. In these cases we have ALREADY BOUGHT and paid for the item. A contract has been entered into. I gave you money and you agreed to send me an item. It isn’t my fault your chosen cashier ( the backend computer) is stupid and didn’t catch your mistake. What they want to do is fix the website and pretend the whole transaction never happened. That is wrong.

        • Stupidcomputers

          Gah! stupid auto correct. please remove this.

        • Sanman202

          Again, they reserve the right to not honor pricing. You hadn’t received the product yet, correct? The transaction wasn’t complete because the item wasn’t in your hands yet. Transaction is complete once the customer has the product and again Wal-Mart reserves the right to fix any typographical errors. What don’t you understand? 

    • Sanman202

      Have you ever heard of “not responsible for typographical errors”? This would apply to any price printed say in a weekly sales flyer for a store. The same would apply here. If the price is $30 and it sells for $349.99 or whatever, how would you expect the selling party to eat all of that cost difference? They have expenses as well even though we see them as this big and mighty powerhouse of a retailer that they are. Live and learn!

    • http://www.facebook.com/unfazedrebel Jé Be (Here but Gone)

      I mean yes we exploited the error I’m not denying that but my issue is the word usage they were better off just saying we made a mistake in pricing and the terms/conditions does protect this error I was only upset by the way they went about canceling the order but Im sure it was systematic that it showed “refund request” but either way o well its not that serious complaining is a waste of time nothing you can do about it now just put my $ back into my account LOL 

    • Newsfinder

      Ugh. another whiny crybaby. Read the TOS the rep spouted off to you. They have SOLE DISCRETION. If it’s too good to be true, it usually is. My tax dollars go to pay for the unbelievable ignorance and entitlement attitude of people like this. Sigh.

  • Jwtheblueprint

    Wuck Fal-Mart

  • andy budhu

    everyone who got screwed should start a class action lawsuit.

    • Sanman202

      I doubt that would cause one little ripple in the big ocean called Wal-Mart. They’ll laugh! It was a pricing mistake that was corrected and their lawyers have it all covered when there is a typo. They can offer something like a small discount to the customers affected but really don’t have to. You either buy it for the correct price or you don’t. It’s that simple. 

  • Guest

    Did they keep your personal information i.e. telephone or email for promotional purposes. How much will they make from that? Send phone with apology or personal info including cc should be purged with proof.

  • ceegii63

    this crap happened 2 years ago with PS3 FAT 60gb with TARGET was selling $39 online

  • http://www.youtube.com/#/mrjlwilliams J. Williams

    Everyone says they got their order, I don’t believe them lol.  There is no way that Wally world would let this happen, and lose all that money.  Show me some proof that you got your order

    • http://twitter.com/catdecorator Wilma jeanne

      you are right, the only way they got it was a upgrade, new line, but NO ONE that ordered the phone for 350$ got it for that price… no way…. i got my cancellation email, they say the price was a mistake, and that those that ordered a phone for that price was CANCELLED…….

      • http://www.youtube.com/#/mrjlwilliams J. Williams

        Agreed, they sent me another email today check it out below.

        Thank you for contacting our Customer Service Department.I am sorry to inform you that we  are having a pricing problem, so the order is cancelled and we have released the authorized amount  $349.99  to the Card on 8/9/2012 2:19:37 AM.If you have any additional questions, please reply to this e-mail or you may log on towww.Walmart Wireless .com and chat with a Live Agent.

    That’s pretty funny. I got gas at a gas station last summer and the cost for gas was at $0.389 rather than $3.899. So, When I realized I just filled my tank for $6.00 when I looked at my receipt at work, I called the gas station. They said they realized it was an issue after about an hour of people coming and going. I stopped in after work and said that I’d pay the difference. The owner was there and not only did he say that I didn’t have to pay for the gas, he gave me a $100.00 gift card for being the only one that came back… But, Walmart is a terrible company, they deserve to lose a crap ton of money, just because. 

  • None

     This is why I do not buy online.  In a b&m store they are required by law to honor the price.  this to me is bait and switch, and hence why I will NEVER buy anything online.
