A "sale" at Sears means anything but. I priced a dishwasher there last night.
It was $449.00. The salesman told me that if waited till today and came back between 6-9 pm, there was a special "friends and family sale" and I could save %15. Imagine my surprise (and fury) when I made a special trip back tonight with my family, money in hand, to purchase the dishwasher and it was $100 more than it was yesterday. I was furious and the manager was called.
He said that yesterday's sales ended and this was a new one and the 15% was off the new "regular" price. Funny, yesterday the "regular price" was $649, not $549. (to make the previous "sale" seem more impressive, I"m sure. Since I was so angry, he "graciously" offered to "give it to me" for the price I'd seen yesterday but "of course" I could not have a double discount.
WTF!! The salesman TOLD me to come back today for that discount! I was still angry but decided to get it at that price.
Then we were told it would take a MONTH to get it! SEARS SUCKS.
