Walmart's systems are overly strict; if you have a new account and the website doesn't like your credit card and/or your purchase, the website will cancel your order. You have to call Walmart customer support to get the website to accept your credit card, and then you can place the order.
The CS rep I had was great so it didn't take long, but it's obviously long enough for you to miss the pre-order.
I got lucky with my pre-order, visited GAF 20 minutes after the thread went up.
Not related to SNES, but I've had a Walmart.com account for over ten years, and a Walmart CC(only usable there) for about the same amount of time. Their system shit the bed this year. Prior to this year I never had a problem, since January, I get orders cancelled constantly. Talking to cs, going through their stupid wait 30 mins and try again so we authorize it, has never worked.
I've spoken with the CC side and multiple departments at Walmart.com with no solution. Always 50/50 chance my orders get cancelled. Never trust that company with orders, stay away if you can.
