800-buy-movies.com800-buy-movies.com ,Excalibur Films 800-buy-movies.com Is Using Bait-N-Switch Tactics To Mislead Buyers! Fullerton California
When I clicked on the link and went to buy the DVD, I was told that they are no longer selling the DVD; that it was left up for "Historical Reference" what ever that means. So I contacted the web site that they were misleading people with a (Bait-n-Switch). Someone got back with me saying that it wasn't a Bait-n-Switch, that they used to sell the DVD for that price. Which means they could have sold 2 copies of it at one point in time, but now they leave it up so search engines will bring up the great price and then hopefully the person will stay and buy other movies.
Looking through their site, they offer ZERO good deals! Everything is overpriced! So I find it doubtful that they would ever sell an entire season of a popular TV show for "$4.95", when every other site is selling it for around $30. So I emailed them back asking that they either sell me the DVD for that price, or to change the profiles to reflect the fact that they no longer sell the DVD and that the price shouldn't read "$4.95", but rather "Out Of Stock". I have yet to hear back from them.
So I am filing this complaint to warn others. 800 Buy Movies is using misleading tactics to entice buyers to their site; where they will found out that the awesome prices are NOT REAL, and that in fact they overcharging for the same DVD's that are sold for less elsewhere.
What You Should Do!
Change your Bait-n-Switch profiles. No one is selling Quantum Leap, Season 1 on DVD for $4.95! And judging from your prices, I doubt your site ever would either. You are clearly trying to misleading people into visiting your web site, where you hope they might buy other overpriced DVD's. So if your no longer selling these DVD's, then there is NO NEED to keep this profile up, with these unrealistic price. I'm sure this isn't the only profile of it's type.
