Believe me, I have no love for Best Buy or Circuit City, and after a few days I was turned down at CC, so I'm not above trying to get the deal, either, but the audacity of some people here to spin it as a fault of the store employees is pretty amazing.
you want the rest of the story - fine. First, neither the dept manager or the store manager knew of the sale at all. It wasn't posted in aisle. The dept manager took me back, showed me the Disney 25% banner, and told me "If there is a sale on certain items, there will be something like this in the display." Had to take him back to his desk, open the ad for him, and show him the ad. He still did not know if there were any other BDs on sale, nor anything else about it, so he had to get a manager.
Had to show the manager the print ad also - dept manager had "lost" the page with BDs, and "Gee, now I can't even find it." Nor could the manager. Had to again, find it myself and put my fingers on it to show the good folks what I was inquiring about.
Manager promptly pointed at the top of page, and said "No, you only get that price when you buy a BD player." Either confusing, or trying to confuse, the Samsung 7 free disc offer at the top with the 2 for $30 at the bottom. Then, he said it was online only, although that is not what is written in the ad copy.
Dude - I wasn't trying to scam. Afaic, BB is the scammer here, with the copy "check in the store for more BD titles." As I read it, the implication was that there were more titles at 2 for $30. It took me ten minutes to get BB employees to even admit that I could purchase the 8 BDs in the ad at the advertised price, in store. The additional title
part of the ad copy was pure bait and switch.
I didn't scam CC last week. I didn't scam BB last week (or this week.) After this, they won't see any more of my money until Black Friday. I hope its ok with you if I take advantage of their loss leaders.
