JC WHITNEY, INC Informative - False and Deceptive Advertising

Review by ChooChooCharlie on 2007-07-27
ORLANDO, FLORIDA -- I recently ordered product from this company. Their email to me offered a $20.00 discount for a purchase of more that $100. They also offered free shipping for a purchase of more that $75.00. My purchase was for $124.99. When I checked out electronically their website would only accept one of the discounts, although my purchase qualified for both. I phoned their customer service and was told that it was "too bad" that they would only process one of the discounts.

One of the most known sentences in business, along with "Batteries not included," and "Some assembly required," is "Not valid with other offers." Re-read your email where these offers were made, you will probably see this sentence somewhere in it.

Didn't you read the fine print?

The free shipping depends on your method of shipping needed. Regular standard shipping is free but if you want it shipped next day rush service there is a charge.
