Walmart Black Friday $99 TV Deal was a Goof


Something things are too good to be true! That’s what happened when Samsung TVs deal were listed on Walmart Black Friday Flyer for just $99.

Few women from North Texas were looking for great discount on, soon realizing that the Black Friday deal has $99 for Samsung TV, which was good to give a pass. Monique Daniels, based in North Texas ordered two 40-inch TVs and a 75-inch TV for $99 each on Walmart. These sets generally cost between $300 to $2,000.

She quickly shared the deal with her friends and all of them bought the same. However, distressing the ladies Walmart sent out an email to each one saying that orders for the deal were cancelled. Initially, Walmart claimed that customers themselves cancelled the orders. Later the giant explained the cancellation due to “pricing error.”

Walmart said “We needed to cancel some customer orders on a certain TV item. We’ve reached out to apologize to customers and offer them a gift card for the inconvenience.”

These gift card were worth $10 each, upsetting the buyer, who desired the company to give them full value store credit as the discounted TVs. For Walmart, the website disclaimer came as a saviour, which says Walmart may cancel or refuse orders in any event of pricing error.

Such irony is not the first time for Walmart; in fact back in 2013, the company experienced incorrect prices on various products. The company cancelled the orders and gave off unacceptable $10 gift cards to make up for mistake.
