Over the weekend, the Walmart Supercenter on Dyer Street and a customer were scammed. That client turned out to be me. Now that’s exactly why I love Target’s drive-up service because they send you a code that you need to provide for your ordered items.
When your order is ready and you arrive to collect your order, they will send you a 4-digit code. Unlike Walmart, they just ask for a name and that’s it. I had scheduled a pickup between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. at Walmart on Sunday.
Usually, Walmart will not let you pick up your order earlier than your scheduled time. I tried once and was not cleared which confused me how my weekend order was picked up much earlier. Around 2:30 p.m., I had received an email confirming receipt of my order. I didn’t think about it until I showed up during my chosen period. When I arrived they said they didn’t have anything under my name.
They all thought I had ordered under a different name or that someone else had picked me up when they hadn’t. Unfortunately, I was returned without the items I paid for. They had to restock my order which luckily wasn’t much.
After the time passed, one of the Kristopher associates explained the situation. Basically, in a nutshell, Walmart and I were scammed and they were going to dig into it. Hopefully this doesn’t happen to anyone else in El Paso who uses Walmart’s pick up service. But Walmart certainly caught up with it by giving me a $ 5 promo code for my next online order for this inconvenience.
