Sam's Club Complaint - False Avertisement

Review by baldoni.nick7 on 2011-06-19
Regular Sam's Club shooper, went to buy a playstation 3 for the family and on the box it said 268.00 and I proceeded to the check when they told me it was actually 298.00 because they didn't have that PS3 in stock even though it was out on the floor for sale.

Talk about false avertisement. Why would they have it avertised on the floor for that price! If they couldn't sell it for that. I am now a Costco shooper and I am done with Sam's Club forever.

-Sincerely disappointed

So the Playstation you brought up to the counter was not the same kind as the one being advertised? Which box said the price was $268?

I can't make sense of this, because obviously the one that you had in your hand means there was at least one in stock. Or was the box empty?

It sounds like the box was empty or the price was incorrect. Maybe you should ask when they are going to get more of the ones for $268.

These sales are noted, "while supplies last". They had NONE and yes should have removed the sales thingy (that you take to the register and then pay and get your item), perhaps the associate got caught by another customer needing help?
