dummies. I went to grab a 12 pack for Scott (his budget, not mine ) because they had their "locked in low price" of 2/5. Well, the ad says "locked in lows. All day every day. This week. Next week. Every week." OK... so I get there, and they're no longer 2/5, but 3/9! That's a 50c hike in ONE DAY! so much for the stupid slogan "this week, next week, every week..."
They should have at least kept it out of the ad a few weeks before jacking it up, don't you think? It was in the ad that ended YESTERDAY!!!!!!!!!!
I would have shown them the ad and made them hold onto that promise for "next week".
~Beth~ Wife to my Airman Chris, and mommy to: Anthony Nathaniel (8/31/04), Anastasia Fae (8/01/06), Baby C (lost on 10/12/07), David Cillian (7/31/08), Charles George (4/29/10), and Alan Christopher (2/22/12)
Well... I did email corporate... I didn't have my copy of the ad with me, though, so I couldn't do that. I have it now.
Here's what I said to them:
If you are going to jack up prices on "everyday low priced" items, you really shouldn't do the DAY AFTER the previously advertised "this week, next week, every week" ad is out of date. I am absolutely PO'ed and not sure I'll shop your 'low prices' again. Just yesterday, CocaCola was advertised as a locked in low at 2/5, and today they're up 50 cents a 12 pack! Not cool. In the least. You could have (and SHOULD have) at least waited a couple weeks so taht yesterday's ad didn't become a blatant lie as well as false advertisement!
How can I trust ANY of the "locked in low prices in today's ad?"[/b]
