Lets keep that in mind on "how many" computers or things you can return without being blacklisted.
Don't know what your + was
but -$6,500 sounds like you returned stuff allot... Of course you said you had this account for 13 years. Wally Mart and all the companies keep track of the same so they're not the only one. Wally mart will ban you if you make (3) returns without a receipt. I swapped out a "hosepipe" Lifetime Warranty, Only sold by Wally Mart (LOL!!!)... and two other small items.... One was like $8.. the other around $25.. and they "banned" me from returning anything else for a year!!!!.. That's when I was buying ALL my household /business supplies thru Wally-Mart.... Do this: Go to www.tenspeed.com
, type Wal-Mart in the search box... Get the below book and read how Wally Mart does their people, how they treat their vendors dirty, etc.. They do all kinds of unhanded stuff... http://www.tenspeedpress.com/catalog...m.php3?id=2073 How Wal-Mart Is Destroying America (and the World) And What You Can Do About It
Bill Quinn $10.95 (CAN $18.50) ISBN: 1-58008-231-9 192 pages | size: 5 x 8 New Edition | Paperback B&W illustrations Ten Speed Press Since Wal-Mart opened two superstores thirteen miles from Grand Saline, Texas, half of the retail businesses
in Bill Quinn's once-thriving hometown have closed.
In HOW WAL-MART IS DESTROYING AMERICA, Quinn exposed Wal-Mart's infestation and destruction of small American towns, where local shops were forced to close, workers were laid off, and downtowns turned into ghost towns.
But dismantling the American dream wasn't enough for this retail Goliath, and now Wal-Mart is aiming for world domination.
Its recent acquisition of Britain's third largest supermarket chain is only the beginning of Wal-Mart's frontal assault on Europe's small businesses. If you've ever wanted to fight for the little guy, now's the time—and this feisty Texas grandpa will show you how. BTW: You can get books from your local libraries interdept loan dept if your library does not have a book your interested in.
I think Wally Mart if memory serves me correctly boasted several years ago 70-80% of everything they sold was MADE IN USA.... Now 70-80% of everything they sell is made in CHINA...
In addtion I think they are the ones that had a city/provence re-named in China
from it's Chinese name... To... "U.S.A"...
so they could get stuff made in CHINA...
and then say it was "Made in U.S.A"...
That story may be bs, but I wouldn't put it past them. Pretty slick, eh?
