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.
Customers Complain About Meijer Canceling Halo Infinite Xbox Series X Orders
Meijer had a Thanksgiving Halo Infinite Xbox Series X restock that resulted in many canceled orders.
Unfortunate gamers voiced out their discontent with this situation. According to many of them, there is a common denominator for this issue.
Since this was a pick-up event, many were told at the store that the restock was oversold.
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.
Same here, drove 30 minutes away. Waited outside for an hour, only for them to tell me they over sold and only got 2!!!!!!! Xbox’s in, but at least I got a $25 gift card for my disappointment— Jboy4343 (@Jboy434343) November 25, 2021
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.
A similar situation also happened when GameStop and Microsoft Store canceled several Halo Infinite Xbox Series X orders.
