Bernie & Phil's Furniture Complaint - Mass Tax Free Weekend
Resolution Update on 08/18/2008:
The store had not responded to me but they must have responded to my3cents.com because they called me and issued a refund for 5%. Thank you!
MASSACHUSETTS -- Massachusetts just had a sales tax free weekend to encourage consumers to get out and help the economy... Bernie & Phil's Furniture used TV promotions to encourage customers not to wait until the tax free weekend... that they would discount the equivalent of the 5% tax if they wanted to shop early.
People who did that were surprised to find that on the actual tax free weekend the store advertised an additional 5%! Anyone who shopped early paid 5% too much... Unfair!!
