Thrifty Propane False advertising and refusal to comply with their advertising Medina Ohio
Thrifty Propane sent me an email advertisement stating "We guarantee to beat any current pricing by at least 10 cents per gallon." I tried three different times to get them to honor their advertisement, but none of their phone personnel would acknowledge it. All I could get out of them is "I'll try to get you the best price I can. I need my manager to OK it".
I had a quoted price from Baker's Gas for $1.28 per gallon for 850 gallons of HD5 propane (the same type of propane that Thrifty sells). Thrifty Propane should have sold it to me for $1.18 per gallon, 10 cents less than Baker's Gas. However, the best price I could get from Thrifty was $1.269 per gallon.
I called Baker's Gas again, thinking that perhaps the price of propane had increased and that Thrifty was actually giving me the 10 cent discount they advertised. However, Baker's Gas informed me that the price of propane had actually decreased to $1.25 per gallon, so I made my purchase from Baker's Gas.
Based on their advertisement of beating any current pricing by 10 cents per gallon, I feel that Thrifty Propane owes me $86.25, since my actual purchase was 862.5 gallos of propane. If Thrifty Propane is allowed to make false statements, they shoud pay for it.
