You guys who are contemplating this deal might just be surprised at how CC may be willing to deal on this set. I know I was. I called up four stores in my area and three of the four said that they will only honor the $1999 as the $1599 was a mistake that was corrected in store and online within a few hours. However, the fourth store said they would honor the $1599 if I could show them the printout that this kind gentleman posted on here.
Well, I wrote down the salesmans name and headed out on my quest. Unfortunately, I forgot to write down which of the four stores said that they would match the price. These stores are anywhere fron 15 -75 miles from each other. Luckily I remembered the salesman's name and called back until I found a store with the right name. He was on break at the time when I arrived so I started talking to the dept head and he said he knew about the mistake and that it really happened. He said that was below their cost. He would not go that low , but he would go $1699 for my trouble but would not honor my 8% AAA coupon. I negotiated to 1650 and made the deal.
Towards the end the original sales person came back and he had the right name but it was not the same guy. Turns out the dept head I was talking to knew the other guy with the same name because he had worked at that store previously.
He said even if I went there (about 30 miles away) and got the original correct guy to go to $1599 he was positive that they would not let me use my coupon for 8 percent.
So, I ended up saving $350 off the $1999 just by trying , and ended up with the discount from a previous store which said sell at $1999. If I would have driven the 30 miles I may have saved another $50 but I had no guarantee that the guy over the phone had the authority to price match from his manager. So, I figured go with the sure thing.
Obviously, they did not have to do this. Shows excellent customer service. Moral of the story try, try and try again. Stores are hurting for business and I can almost guarantee you that this would not have been honored 5-10 years ago in good economic times. By the way , I worked at CC for 3 years way back then.
Good luck in your quest.
