Crap! I knew it was too good to be true. I’m expecting mine to be delivered on the 10th. Confirmation sent by Walmart for the order still says 2000 Watt Invertor - 100 Amp Charger.

Well the selling company did promptly send me a return label for it. I don’t know if you should refuse delivery or not. If you refuse they may charge you for shipping??? Don’t know, but what I got sure wasn’t what was advertised. Ups is picking mine up tomorrow. Maybe call the company, it isn’t Walmart but rather something like Boat and RV Accessories.

Is there not laws against this sort of thing? It was advertised that way and we are not getting what we paid for..... I am just saying.

It was a MM1512AE. Don’t know anything about it. Just that it wasn’t what was advertised.

Interesting that when I made the purchase my credit card fraud alert went off and I had to try a second time to complete the buy. Probably just a coincidence, but interesting still.

Now that you bring up the credit card fraud alert, mine went off also. Wonder what that means?

So did mine. Got a call from the bank the next morning to confirm the purchase. Suspicious.

The inverter was not what I wanted but the deal was too good to pass up. I finally decided that if I bought one I would never really get what I wanted so I passed. It’s unfortunate that it was a clerical mistake. In reality they were pricing a 1500w modified wave inverter, something I don’t want at any price.

I was thinking that too. If it had been an ad from some suspect vendor instead of Walmart, maybe I’d feel different about it. Perhaps it was no coincidence that I placed the order on April Fools day.

Hmmmm.

Anyone have any idea how big an operation that Boat & RV Accessories place is? If it is a mom and pop shop I would hate to put too big a ding on their balance sheet.

Walmart on the other hand ....

Of course if it were an honest mistake I would hate to get someone in trouble also.

I get that. They advertised, people bought, surely that`s a deal and they should honour it. "Sorry, we underpriced it, the deal is off" is BS. Unless there is something in any T&Cs you signed up to.
