Walmartwalmart site to store misleading on actual delivery time

Review updated:

I've placed three separate orders with online within the past 30 days. Two orders have arrived late, and I'm currently still waiting on the 3rd and FINAL order I'll ever place. It's been 16 days since I placed the order and my credit card was charged, and I've still not received this order. Walmart advertises on their site "place order site to store and receive it within 7-10 days! I've written them numerous times regarding this and have not received any satisfaction nor any discounts to make up for their tardiness! IF they can't deliver on time at the minimum they should offer a discount or some kind of refund. Numerous sites offer free shipping to your door and those arrive within 2 days! Walmart is falling behind in their customer service.

    I order someting from and waited 24 days for it to come in. It finally came in and was returned the samed day before I could get to the store to pick it up. I had paid in advance. It was a Christmas gift for my husband. I' ll never order anything from again!

    I think this probably depends on the item's availability, as well as your location. I ordered site to store, and received my item within 5 days, 4 days earlier than I was quoted. Also remember that they say within 7-10 business days, not days. So if you place the original order on a friday, 10 business days later would actually be 15 days away.

    i can see this was posted a couple years ago. maybe they have gotten better. just ordered a bass guitar package weighing 30lbs about 36 hours ago. its already ready for store pickup. maybe its depends on how far it needs to go. mine only had to go about 300 miles, was still expecting it in at least a week! but less then 36 hours from order!! great job Walmart!

    Jason - sometimes better prices are available on the website - even when they have the same product in stock at your local store. For instance, I bought the Guitar Hero world Tour Band kit for Xbox 360 for $99. In store the same kit was $170.

    Palenstine, TX is 100 miles from Marshall, TX and still couldn't get it to its destination on time. I listed the tracking info above. This is a sad sad day. Wal-Mart is going downhill fast. I ordered this TV on the 28th of June and and the last tracking date is the 4th of July. Well I see how Wal-Mart treat their veterans. It made it from the sorting facility but took its time after that. I'm wonder if its sitting in the store and no one just dont know what to do with it...Im thinking about getting a refund.

    Walmart is advertising to have your orders ready for pick-up in 7-10 business days. It's been 13 days since my order has been placed which i guess is fine, but when you spend $300 on an ipod touch, you wish they would stick to their word. Tracking details have not even been updated at all.

    Tracking Your Order:
    1. Most, but not all orders can be tracked online using the tracking information in your order confirmation email. For example, orders shipped using the United States Postal Service, UPS Mail Innovations and Fed Ex Smart Post cannot be tracked.
    2. Once your order has shipped, it may take 24 to 48 hours for the carrier to update they're tracking information. You can check back daily to track the progress of your order.
    Processing Time:
    3. Once you click Submit and your payment is authorized, it normally takes 24-48 hours for the warehouses to pick, pack and prepare your order for shipping.
    4. Due to our suppliers' varying delivery schedules to our stores, it is normal for some Site to Store orders to require longer than 48 hours to process; however, your order will still arrive by the estimated delivery date.

    Been waiting for a tv ordered online and shipped site to store. Online tracking says it is in Marcy, NY, in transit to the Utica Walmart, a distance of about 10 miles (we actually live about 3/4 of a mile from this regions distribution center!). Well, it's been "in transit" for about 3 days now. Apparently it is being hand-carried or perhaps strapped to the back of a camel. What a joke.

    order from amazon! Same prices, but they will guarantee the shipping! It's free shipping to your house and it always arrives before they say. Walmart is awful customer service. My tiny package has been "in transit" for 3 days and no one seems to have any answers for me. I'll make sure I let everyone I know to do their business elsewhere.

The training mitts have however been in transit from the Bentonville Delivery Facility to the Mountain Home Walmart store since Dec. 9th. It has still not arrived and Christmas is in 5 days. Noone will give a straight answer. What is up with these people!!! Berenda

    I also have ordered from Walmart a lot in the past and not once have I ever gotten a package on time. I am kinda impatient, but when you spend your hard earned money on items, you expect to get them in the time frame that is specified on the the store site. The best part is that I could have bought the very item in the store instead of online because I have seen it in the store, yet it has taken well over the 10 days to even ship it to the store for pickup. I hate when you look online and find an item that you know wont be in the store ( only) and then you order it online and have to wait til you no longer need the item, and once again see it in the damn store. For example, I bought baby gear and by the time I receive it, my child might be off to college. Grrrrrr!

Opened the box and the vanity we ordered was destroyed. And guess what they don't have another one like the one she had ordered:( Called the store and got a big hassle on what we have to do to return it. And definitely not getting it before Christmas!!!

    I use to like the site to store service up until my last order I placed. Two weeks so far and still no order! Wal Mart should be called slow mart! I mean come on how hard is it too send a couple dvds in the mail. I never had a issue with them up until now and from here on in I will be purchasing from amazon. Screw wal-mart and their slow services. What really irks me is they are quick to charge your debit card yet they send stuff and process it when they feel like doing it! I say bs so they can take site to store and shove it as far as Im concerned. I was a loyal customer up til now.

    For over 8 months I have tried to shop at the Wal-Mart in Johnsburg, Il but but my frustration is always met. I've complained to the store itself many times without resolve. When going in to purchase Arizona sweet tea, cat and dog food they are almost always out of stock. They have no other options on the teas and I would have to spend twice as money buying small bags of the pet food. You would think that the purchasing department would get a clue, but no always they run short on even with constant complaints. We decided after this last waste of our time and money to not ever use this store again and use target of the Mejier store in the same area, as we spend over 130.00 every other week they have lost my business and purchasing.

This is really getting on my nerves. They need to send my tablet now or I'm going to not buy stuff from them again.

    I read a lot of complaints saying "my order has been 'intransit since (such and such date) from the distribution center to the store" my advice as a former 9 yr walmart employee is to call the store in question and do not rely on the tracking on the website. The tracking feature is only as accurate as the associate who works the receiving door at the pickup facility in question. If said associate fails to properly check in your site to store order, the tracking on the website Will continue to say in transit INDEFINATELY. Until the ASN barcode on the package is physically scanned by an associate at the store You will not receive an alert informing you that your order is ready for pickup. Having worked the site to store area many many MANY times in my 9 year career at Wal-Mart, I cannot count how many times a customer would call us at store level asking about an order that has read intransit on tracking site and it have been siting there for days having never been checked in properly. Just a little bit of knowledge from me to you. GOOD LUCK! :)

    I ordered my son's carseat on 08/11/2013 and it still has not arrived yet. I've place many many calls to customer service and to the actual pick-up store and all they can tell me is that it is on the way and I will receive an email when it is ready for pickup. Seriously?! I will never ever use walmart site to store ever again. The shipping time is ridiculous... they can't track exactly where the truck is because it is not like fedex or ups. Not only all this but my order was also delayed too. If they offer me a giftcard to use online i'll have to tell them where to shove it. I have MUCH better luck with other stores and sites so i will def be sticking with them. has lost yet another customer.

    I ordered an Ipad on 9/28 and got a text saying it was ready for pickup. I didn't get a chance to stop by the store in Watchung NJ until today. At the store the sales associate could not find it. After waiting for about 30 minutes, she suggested I do some shopping while she looked in the back. I came back after 20 minutes and she informed that the item had been "sold" and she would contact her manager to see if the item was available for purchase from the stock inventory. She later admitted to me that the item was probably stolen. After waiting another 20 minutes, the store manager informed me that the item was not carried at the store and I would need to get a refund. The refund took a very long time to be processed while the associates figured out if I could get cash back or wait for the funds to be redeposited in my PayPal account. After waiting almost 2 hours, the manager offered me a 15 dollar gift card for my "inconvenience". The SitetoStore service is a disgrace compared to what I've experienced in other stores i.e. Best Buy.

    Tim6669 Jan 04, 2015 and their site to store should be named slow to store. I have been waiting now for over 2 weeks for a couple dvds to come in and still no word from them. No tracking information and I have already had to go down there to pick up bits and pieces of my order which was cut into 3 different shipments. I am highly disgusted with walmart and honestly to anyone who reads this message...I strongly recommend going to amazon. Mostly everything amazon ships gets to you within a few days unless you live somewhere in the middle of nowhere. I never had any issues with amazon but from now on walmart will not get my business or hard earned money! Only reason I went with them was cause I got a walmart gift card for the holidays...not anymore I will no longer do business with slow-mart or their lowsy site to store...not to mention their customer service is terrible and they are rude rude.

    I ordered a dining room set on Jan 5th. Got an email that it was shipped on Jan 7th, estimated pickup date is Jan Never received that pick up email. ALthough I have recvd an email from Walmart for me to rate my dining room set...that I dont have yet. Then their website claims this order has been picked up already. Then I tracked it and it has been Im delayed in transit and new estmiated pick up date is Jan 29th. A whole month? I have to wait a whole month for this? And why does say that its been picked up? I tried calling the store and the lady transfers me and the phone just rings, rings, rings, answer. I called back asked for a manger and she promptly hung up on me. Going to the store tomorrow and demanding my money back. I will go to Value City Furniture and buy something in the store, that way I dont have to wait on a delivery that will never come.

    upset Milwaukee customer Feb 01, 2015

    I am really happy to see that I am not the only person having issues with shipping items to store for pickup. I ordered an item on the 22nd of January 2015. It said online my item would be available for pickup on the 29th of January. Once I placed the order, I got a confirmation email stating that my item should be available for pickup on February 13th 2015. What the hell, I thought to myself. So I called customer service they told me they don't know why the system is generating different pickup dates. I canceled my order. Then I went back online just to make sure I wasn't crazy. I tried to purchase that same item and this time the gave me a pick up date of February 3rd, 2015. Walmart you have to get better. You are getting to much of our damn tax dollars to be misleading customers that order online. I am going to contact my local news anchor to report this major problem Walmart has...

    I don't understand why they even bother to give you "estimated delivery time" when you place an order online, they never EVER respect their dates. On top of which you have to deal with snooty, impolite customer service agents. Pathetic excuse for a store. Wake up people, there are other discount stores for you to shop in. Plus Walmart has raised their prices and I found that it's not worth my time to go there only to save 50 cents. THis was my last purchase from Walmart - EVER. I will make darn sure to warn everyone I know and tell them to buy their items elsewhere. What do they do when called on it??? They blame the carrier, gooooo WalMart! I will take my money elsewhere and will be sure to tell anyone who will listen that you guys take pleasure at laughing in people's faces. Screw you, eventually people will wake up and you will end up like Target Canada...CLOSED and bankrupt!

    Ahhh, do we all remember when this store was known for items (albeit cheap) were made in USA and it was worth it to go there. I too only did site to store because of a gift card I received. My last experience with the system was &%$#, and I thought, 'never again'. My items were shipped in stages and that last one was a doozy. I use up my gift card this time to be done with it, and guess what? Same &%$#! Call the store and you get transferred somewhere that ultimately tells you to call back. This time it's three DVDs, all supposed to have been delivered two days ago. This is after the insanely long wait time for items (compared to other online places which get you your stuff fast). The day after it is supposed to be here I get the e-mail saying my items will be late (same as last order). There has been a problem with order tracking since my last order (some months ago), but they are doing "everything they can to get it up and running for an enjoyable customer experience". Oh well...they have helped make my decision easier to not give them any more business at all. No offers to customers who are put out or inconvenienced, really? To anyone who says, "they don't make their money on site-to-store purchases", I say pshaw! When you spend any money anywhere with a retailer, they are making money. Never again, Wally World. Sorry guys, misery loves company and I'm glad I'm not the only one.

    I agree, don't use Walmart site-to-store and expect it to come when they say it will. I get enticed by the free shipping to store, and like an id10t, I fell for it again. I think i've used the service 3 times and every time the item says it will arrive on a date, and then it actually arrives at least a few days later.

    Last time, I ordered the item again, on sale, a couple days later. Had it shipped to my house. It got here before the first one ever got to the store. Dumb. I picked up the one at the store and immediately returned it to the lady.

    I had a similar problem I ordered a computer for in store pick up. I got a email saying it was in store on Friday and when I went not only was there no one there to help me but when someone finally showed up they told me the computer was not there. I received a second email saying it was in the store Saturday so when I went Sunday and again no one to help me he asked for my order number I opened my email to find another email saying there was a delay and no date was available for delivery but they had charged my card. I refuse to pay for something with no delivery date. If I don't get it in the next few days I'm going to dispute the charge.

    I came do know walmart's free shipping is a scam! If you end up buying more to get over 50.00 for free shipping walmart will send an item or two, light in weight and low in cost, but anymore bigger and costlier it will be weeks and weeks until you get it. I proved it too. I had someone in the same house as me buy shelving the same shelves for 22.00 but paid the 4.97 shipping charge, and he got the shelves in 8 days. I also bought the same shelves a couple weeks before he did and I bought over 50.00 worth off stuff and still have not gotten the shelves "and walmart shows online they are still in stock" the only thing walmart sent was a cheap box of tissues. The shelves I got under free shipping are coming from the same place coming to the same address where the other shelve with paid shipping got here in 8 days. All Walmart has done is created a shipping label "11 days ago", however, they have sent nothing to the shipper just created a shipping label. I'm over three weeks now and walmart has still not sent the shelves to the shipper, the same shelves that came here under paid shipping in 8 days. If you want something from walmart and don't want to wait weeks or more than a month pay for shipping because if you put it under free shipping they will not ship for a long time just take your money and collect interest off your money until they actually ship it. Walmart makes millions and millions off the interest of your money as long as they have your money and still have their item and have not sent it "It's a walmart greedy scam" there is never enough for walmart whether they are robbing their employees or customers, they are the meaning of GREED. WALMARTS FREE SHIPPING IS A SCAM!!!
