    so i ordered a sidearm sideswipe off walmart.com last thursday for $9 plus 97 cents shipping...

    [​IMG]

    and walmart sends me THIS thing...

    [​IMG]

    looks totally like a transformer to me....so i guess my niece gets another toy for Xmas...emailed walmart...they want to give me a refund but want me to return the item to their store for a refund even though i told them they send the wrong item....

    so screw that noise...i can see the argument now...you are supposed to return a transformer....and you have this thing....

    UGH!

    :banghead: 


    so does anyone have a sidearm sideswipe loose but complete that they want to unload cheap?

    I feel more sorry for the poor little girl who got a Sidearm Sideswipe instead of the LPS set she wanted so badly.

    I can't believe that they'd make you return it despite it being their mistake.

    Hell, HTS once sent me a wrong item and they just told me to keep it.

    Gotta love Walmart's customer service.

    according to their email:

    " Thank you for contacting Walmart.com regarding the incorrect items.

    I apologize you received Littlest Petshop Petriplets toy set instead of Transformers: Deluxe Class - Sidearm Sideswipe. Unfortunately, an error occurred during fulfillment. This issue will be reported to our fulfillment team to ensure correction prior to additional order placement. A replacement cannot be made at this time due to the item being out of stock. A refund has been issued.

    A representative from our Resolutions Team will contact you within 48 business hours with updated information on the status of your issue and advise if the item is available for reorder.

    Note: Currently, incorrect items are only returnable to Walmart.com. "

    i guess maybe they did a Kmart and had the wrong sku for this toy...probably anyone that ordered a sideswipe is getting that pink colored turd toy.

    freaking sorry ass corporation....

    what kills me is the shipping slip says transformers: sidesarm sideswipe

    can a drone worker that packs boxes not see that this pink toy does not say transformers anywhere on it:?

    wow this is the first time. i ever heard of walmart.com getting a TF fans order wrong. usually kmart.com is the site that gets TF fans orders wrong.

    I even order from walmart.com at least 10+times per year. I've yet to see walmart.com get my order wrong.

    I realize your upset but please try not to curse in your subject header. some might get offended. others read the forums at work & are on shared company networks. companies might question the employees for going on sites/forums with curse words in it.

    seriously screwed up, and such an obvious mistake too, I would not be surprised if the drone was getting pressure to finish up packing up the stuff to go out that day and saw they were out of the side arm sideswipe and grabbed anything handy and threw into the box just to get it out and avoid having to deal with it.

    Sucks it happened ;;. Should write walmart an email, which you can do through the help section of the site, and explain what happened. Should also mention that not being able to return a wrong item sent with a prepackaged return to sender label to just leave with yer mailman, if you so choose, seriously compromises your trust in ordering from them again. Politely of course..

    Being able to return it to a store should also be an option, imo.

    Nothin will happen Im sure but, maybe they take honest/real feedback seriously :;shrugs::. Maybe they comp you somehow too. Cant hurt anyway
