*Consumer Suggestion: It's the busiest day of the year...COME ON!!!!
They had several good deals on flat screen HDTV's. The ad said that there were 35 minimum Sharp lcd tv's and that the store would open at 8 am. We showed up at 7:45 am and stood in the long line. When we finally got in the store there was an announcement that all the tv's had been sold.
What they did is they handed out tickets for the tv's and you could only by one with a ticket. (That wasn't listed in the ad) Also, they handed out the tickets while people waited in line after midnight. (That wasn't in the ad also)
I inquired from the salesman if they had given out more tickets than they had tv's and he said no....hesitantly.
The ticket clearly stated that it was good as long as supplies last and ended at 10:00 am. Well, why would the ticket be good only as long as supplies last and if I am in line at 9:30 but don't check out until after 10:00 am is my ticket good. Some people got their tickets and left think they had their "Golden Ticket". I wonder if they got their deal or did they get screwed.
What I noticed alot of people doing and we even said it ourselves, "well, as long as we are here maybe we can find a different deal!" I would say that is bait and switch. We ended up using their ad and bought the Tv at Walmart.
