Walmart Glitch Angering Customers
COLUMBUS (Ben Garbarek) -- The deals were literally too good to be true.
Customers were able to buy expensive electronics for just a couple bucks.
"It never said the original price," said Mary Craig, who bought a $123 kids craft table for just $7.64. "It just said '$7.64' and I thought, 'wow, lucky me'."
Craig was buying the toy for her grandsons. She said it's something she wouldn't be able to afford at full price.
"(It's the) first time in my life I've gotten something on that much of a discount," she said.
The steal of a deal wasn't an early holiday special though. It was Walmart's mistake.
"I purchased that believing (Walmart's) website posting," Craig said. "Then you send an email a few hours later telling me you're going to cancel because you messed up. It's not fair. I'm sorry. I think I should get my toy for $7.64."
Walmart is now offering $10 gift cards as a peace offering.
