Yes UPS
Did they put a value on the customs form and did they mention it was a warranty replacement?

Not that I saw but I'll look it all over again tonight. I didn't really see much paperwork or anything.

Hope mine come through ok - it's all kind of frustrating. I may end up just spraying the control boards with lacquer or something.

Did you buy first then start the contact with cust. service or the other way around? I'm tempted on a SF unit at the $248 price and probably Pi mod it but don't really want to pay full price and hope they credit the difference.

I don't know that you'll be able to pull off a Street Fighter at $248. I was only able to get Centipede at that price because they had it in stock at the St Clair location. Then I was able to price match a 2nd at that price with my own receipt. What people have been able to do is price match the Street Fighter at $288 because of the Hamilton location having them in stock at that price. I was able to price match Rampage to that price with my receipt for Pacman, SF2 & Centipede and a picture of the $288 display. I think they only let me do Rampage because I said they had it there but I couldn't fit it in my car with the other 3. The picture I took had such a big stack they just assumed it was in stock. St Clair only had 2 Centipede in stock and nothing else for the $248. So picture couldn't really be used for anything else. Really it depends on the CSR you get. The problem is that St Clair put their price back up to $399 so good luck even having them call the store. Only Hamilton has the $288 price still but not sure if they have any stock left. I would hold off and see the next sales/price cuts because I would be shocked if they don't come soon. Or you could use the receipt I posted here as well as the picture and try for a $288 price match. You need to buy the unit online first and then email to request a price match.

I contacted customer service first as I wanted assurance the would do it before i bought as i heard walmart online is terrible for cancelling orders and i didn't want the unit shipped to me at full price. After i finally received confirmation i placed my order, replied to the confirmation email with my order number and they did the refund right away. It was getting the initial confirmation that took way too much effort as I wanted rampage PM'd and none of the pics on here showed rampage so they didn't want to do it. haushinka gave me his rampage receipt and even then they denied it at first as no pics had rampage in it but finally I got someone that would do it. Walmart by far has the worst csr's to deal with

That's good to know that you got an assurance first. I tried and no one one would assure me of anything so I just ordered and worst case was going to need to return it.

played around with the pacman unit a little today at a walmart- thought it worked pretty good and was kinda fun.

i was trying to be harsh on it to see if the art on the control panel would come off - seemed okay but i did manage to scratch/dent it a little so i could see it being destroyed pretty easily if kids are using this.

Well I tried to PM my online order for another SF and Rampage with the Hamilton photo and my own receipt in B.C. with the price showing $288.00 (dated 1 day before) on my first purchase and the CSR did not approve it because they need to see a photo of SF and Rampage with the $288.00 price. I sent a reply with more supporting photos of SF with the $288.00 price but I don't have one for Rampage so I hope they will accept it this time. But if they refuse then I will just return it since I already have 1 SF and Rampage at $288.00.
