Btw, were my tickets supposed to come with some kind of promo stuff?
Part of the reason they would probably be more organized is that they deal with less than half of the market share that Wal-mart does. I love Target, but the truth is 90% of the time you go there (at least where I'm from) it's pretty quiet, so I'd hope they have things in place to deal with it better ... same with a Best Buy.
BUT, again, why would WB want to do this promotion with a store that will not do 1/2 the volume of potential customers? It's about maximizing potential gains ... the fact that the ticket buyers didn't have the smoothest time in some locations is irrelevant to them, they know you'll still use the ticket.
At our store, things went pretty smooth, but you're right, many stores were probably a train wreck. It really depends on who is in charge there.
