I will never order from Walmart.com again. I ordered a treadmill which was dumped outside, no help getting it in. We had to hire people to bring it upstairs as my husband is a heart patient and it comes in a very big box. We get it upstairs, assemble it and it doesn’t work. I called ICON, who handles the technical support, and upon removing the motor cover, discovered that it had shattered during shipping apparently. First they ordered the wrong part, then the part I need is out of stock and they don’t know when it’s coming in. Then, I tried to deal with Walmart.com customer service and they were very rude and not helpful, except for one gentleman. Irving and John were horrible. No one seems to care. We were told to put the treadmill outside and someone will pick it up. I spend $1000 a month at Walmart and belong to several clubs that use Walmart as their main source. Guess what? Not anymore. Walmart isn’t the only game in town. Maybe if more people complain about their experiences Walmart won’t have the big business attitude and NO customer service at all. The item was a Gold’s Gym 320 treadmill – don’t order it because you’ll never get help!!!!!

Very disappointed today. I want my order completely refunded right away. I ordered a bike online on June 15th- Available for in store pick up on June 19th. That got pushed back to June 30th. It is July 1st and nothing yet. Also, once it arrives it needs to be put together. The tracking info never worked. I called customer service and wanted it refunded. I had a gift card for $97- (the gift card was from a Huffy bike I returned because it fell apart after ONE week)- I do not want a walmart gift card, so why can’t the full amount of $163.08 go back on my Visa Card? The woman who helped me was nice, but all I wanted was a bike… I will never buy a bike from Walmart again. How do I even know this is being refunded? I was on the phone for over a half hour and refuse to call again.

This complaint concerns the Walmart in Yreka, CA store, a few issues dealing with out of stock items and long checkout waits. Recently I went to purchase 40# Purina chicken scratch. Normally there are big tier shelves filled with this product. For the past week, the shelves have been bare. When I asked the older gentleman who works the department about this and when to expect re stock, he ignored me and took care of someone else. Also had to wait over an hour in checkout line and if I didn’t need the cart full of items for a dinner party, I would have walked out and left it. Your online forms pages are not working properly. Not simple, not user friendly and “server error, try later”. WHAT BS.
