Circuit City ripoff Chattanooga Tennessee
I responded to a after Thanksgiving Sale paper add for Circuit City which Advertised TOSHIBA notebook for $199.99. The fine print read "After $350 Instant Savings & $250 Instant Saving with AOL 12-month subscription","Minimum 15 per store". The Sale paper add also read "Doors open Friday 5am".
Seeing that this was an excellent deal I took off work and awoke at 3:00am and drove across town to be apart of the great savings! I arrived at 4:00 and lined up at the door. There was aprox.10 people infront of me. One of the storage managers began handing out vouchers for many of their sale items. One set of vouchers were the $199.99 TOSHIBA notebooks. They randomly handed out these vouchers and did not take the first people in line.
At 5:09 the doors opens and the crowd of people pushed their way into the store. I was the 5th or 6th person in line at the Computer Department. The Computer Dept. Manager told me to get out of line if I did not have a voucher because I would not be able to purchase one of the NoteBooks. I told him that they did not hand the 15 vouchers out to the people in the line as they were in order. He said that the store did not recieve 15 of these computer and that several people had been given vouchers at 7pm before the morning.
Folks! What a ham & bait!!
