Walmart, Glitch? Or GENIUS Marketing?
Let me start off by saying, this is MY PERSONAL opinion. Just a thought, something that made me go……… Hmmmmmmmm last night!
As I was laying in bed, the entire day and commotion with the “Walmart Glitch” replaying in my head, It started to make me wonder.
Last year, about this same time (the holidays) you all may remember the Vacuum “Glitch” that occurred. Many rushed to their website, ordered it, and some even got both vacuums for right around $20 (If you went and picked them up right away with in store option) but the majority of us got reimbursed and a $10 Wal Mart Gift Card.
Now this year, right around the same time, their website has a “Glitch” Thousands and THOUSANDS of fans get amazing prices on products, It even made NATIONAL News (Some GREAT advertisement for their store and website if you ask me) I can only imagine what their views on their website were like yesterday! IN the end, a select few who were fast enough to get there and do the in store pick up option, do get the items they purchased at a STEAL…. BUT the Majority again get a “We goofed, SORRY, here is a $10 Gift Card Email!”
Coincidence both of these happened at the same time of year? THE HOTTEST time of year for Holiday Shopping? Possibly?!? What I do know, is all those Gift Cards they are giving out is going to mean more Holiday Shoppers shopping in their store and on their website!
Just something to think about 🙂
