Midas Complaint - Midas Coupons Are Sometimes Worthless...
BLOOMINGDALE, ILLINOIS -- Do you have a Midas coupon? It's probably worthless if you do.
No matter what it says, Midas is smarter than you and they'll prove it on your final invoice. Say you need brake service, typically a $210 service to get new pads and the rotors turned (smoothed out). The $210 is an industry standard and - for example - my invoice said the brake pad service cost $124.95 (parts and rotor turning not included), but then they slip in their own sneaky little line that says "Savings-$25 Off". Guess what, the total STILL adds up to $210.
Did you catch the trick, the dishonest little scam? Try to figure it out before reading on, because I missed it at first...
Well, their sneaky coupon bars you from using ANY advertised coupon (only "one per visit," per the fine print)! This means you get the same competitive price as say, the OEM dealership, but Midas reels you in with coupons that will NEVER, EVER work. How's that for savy and yet entirely unethical business? Ugh.
Note: Watch out for the bogus "Shop Costs" they slip in. It's for that $12.83 roll of paper towel they used.
