OK it's bad enough I watched things dissappear from my cart, but it never got to my checkout page and eventually said Page Not Found. Then I tried to get back on Walmart.com and nothing. GRRR I just lost my whole cart. I'm never doingBF again and I'm never going to Walmart.com again....:mad: :mad:

Had all my items in cart and was in the middle of my order being submitted when server crashed. Very dissapointed as I thought to avoid the crowds by shopping online this year. I also won't try Wal-mart.com again. :mad:

Just tried again with no luck! The site's basically paralyzed because I've been trying to checkout since 5:10 a.m.

I tried being ready had everything that wasn't available yet added to my wishlist so just click and add too, I stayed up for this and am really mad, I was hoping to get the GB micro for $39! You think they would have been prepared?

Looks like they didn't properly stress test their servers in anticipation of all the black Friday traffic...NICE Hooray for being proactive!

Argh, I now know why I stopped shopping wal-mart. You make millions a day and can't afford a decent server? And what are they trying to do, hand your *ss on a platter with shipping cost? 5.46 to ship a memory card????:eyepoppin :eyepoppin. Oh well I WILL SPEND MY MONEY SOMEWHERE ELSE, I can't believe I woke up for this :no:

Good grief -- I thought it was just me !!
I stated on another post that I could not check out, now I get this message:

NOW is NOT the time nor the place for this. :mad:

Yeah, that "Scheduled Maintenance" message is totally bogus! I was hoping to pick up the GBA Micro for $39 bucks. Guess there's nothing else to do but try to order via hone now when customer service agents become available in at 6 a.m. Well, back to standing in line at Target next year:yup: !

I just came from my local Walmart, and there were not that many people there.......I'm hoping that will force them into having a decent sale prior to xmas.

Good luck! I hope you find what you need at the store. As for me, I'm waiting on the phone line for the next customer service agent.... :( This could take forever. :yawn:

I am trying to call cust. service and it says that due to high holiday call volume that I need to call back and then it disconnects me. I have never seen anything like this.
