  • Walmart shoppers reported a
    shortage of iPhones within the stores on Black
  • The retailer previously touted a number of in-store,
    iPhone-related bargains.
  • Walmart customers took to social media to complain.

Walmart shoppers flocked to the retail giant on Black Friday,
expecting top in-store deals on high-ticket items.

But some Walmart customers seeking bargains on
iPhones were sorely disappointed.

The Verge reported that the retail giant
previously touted specific iPhone deals, including a $300 Walmart
gift card with the iPhone XS, XS Max, and iPhone XR and a $400
Walmart gift card with the iPhone X, 8, and 8 Plus. To get the
gift cards, the iPhones had to be activated on AT&T, Sprint,
or Verizon payment plans.

But shoppers took to social media to say that their attempts to
purchase iPhones at the retailer’s Black Friday in-store event
didn’t go too smoothly. In fact, a number of customers said that
their stores only carried a handful of iPhones in total.

Other prospective shoppers asked for guidance on which stores are
still carrying certain iPhones.

A Walmart spokesperson has not yet responded to Business
Insider’s request for comment. Walmart’s website did not appear
to be advertising the deals as of Thanksgiving evening.
