Meijer Canceling Orders After Thanksgiving Halo Infinite Xbox Series X Restock

Some Thanksgivings were soured after many gamers got their Halo Infinite Xbox Series X orders from Meijer’s latest restock.

Even after one year from launch, current-gen consoles are still scarce.

We are in the Holiday season already, but retailers are still doing what they can to cope with demand.

Meijer is no exception to this statement.

The supermarket chain held a Thanksgiving store pick-up Halo Infinite, and standard Xbox Series X restock.

Unfortunately, this drop did not have a happy ending for many unlucky gamers.

Meijer had a Thanksgiving Halo Infinite Xbox Series X restock that resulted in many canceled orders.

Additionally, according to reports, Meijer told some customers this was due to technical issues.

Meijer did communicate a delay occurring before the restock went live.

Unfortunately, many drove to their local stores to find out Meijer canceled their order.

In the case of this particular gamer, at least he got a small compensation for the disappointment.

The story kept on repeating, and the disappointment tweets piled up.

Some gamers were already getting ready to get their consoles when the cancelation message popped up.

The frustration was so immense for some customers that they even chronologically retold the whole experience.

Shortly after orders began, customers received the unfortunate cancellation call.

Sadly, the story was the same over and over for many gamers.

Sadly, this event is not isolated to Meijer and its Thanksgiving Halo Infinite Xbox Series X restock.

Recently Walmart canceled PS5 and Xbox Series X orders after its Black Friday event.

A similar situation also happened when GameStop and Microsoft Store canceled several Halo Infinite Xbox Series X orders.

They did the same exact thing to me last Christmas. Paid for the order and then got a call cancelling it.

I even received a text from Miejer saying it will be ready to pick up and then got a phone call saying they were sold out from a sales associate.Sounds fishy to me.

Best buys put their information out at 6AM online on the 15Th that it was in-store event only. But only select stores in select markets even had a few. It was very disappointing. Bottom line this whole XBox Halo was a bust for many of us.

Well they got one step further than me... i had mine in the cart and the website didn't allow me to hit continue after picking any of the timeslots offered. They should have had different screens to go to after the automated shopping line system, and send an email when it will be ready for pickup.
