Staples Informative - In Store Pricing Tactics
TIFFIN, OHIO -- I went to Staples last week to price a new CD/R/RW. They had one behind the counter at a price of $49.95.
I had the sales clerk hand me the item and went to the cashier at the front to pay for the unit.
It rang up $69.95. I told the cashier that the price tag said $49.95. The cashier went to the counter and came back with the tag. He took the tag and waved it at me and said in a very snotty attitude "Well, the tag says it is $69.95 with a $20.00 rebate."
I looked at the tag and in numbers 1" high $49.95 and in letters approx. 1/8" high "
After $20.00 rebate."
I told him "How in the Hell can anyone see that small print from approx. 8-10 feet away?"
I know about Staples rebate problems, (Been there - Done That)
I will never shop at Staples again.
