I went into Sears for your Columbus Day sale, as I wanted to purchase a Bromont Luxury Firm (aircool) Queen size mattress which was originally priced around $700.00 back in July with a 24 month financing available. I was very excited that Sears was having a "50%" promotion plus an extra "10% off", as my husband and I are new homeowners we are looking at maximum savings and this just seemed like the deal we were waiting for. Imagine our surprise when we went to Sears and was informed that the mattress was on sale for $629.00 with a 12 month financing plan!!!
The sales associate said that it was marked down from the "Regular price of $1599.99", a price that we were told in July was never the price that Sears sold the Mattress for, as they always sold at a lower cost, which was in the $700.00 price range. Therefor how was the price a $60% discount is beyond me and with a lesser financing option!
I think that this is just another way for a large corporation like Sears to take advantage of unsuspecting customers, as the sales agent was quite surprised that we had paid so much attention to the "Original" prices and information back in July. Suffice to say, I did not purchase the new mattress because it just seemed like a very unfair and fraudulent deal.
