I don't shop at Jewel or Dominick's because they are 30 to 50 higher on their products. A loaf of Butternut white bread has a suggested retail price of $2.49. Off sale, they both charge $2.79. Sometimes they put Texas Toast on sale for $2.59 and tell people that they are saving 30 cents. $2.59 is the suggested retail price. I shop at independant stores.
This whole thing with Best Buy has been building up. It started last January. They were advertisting 0% when you use your credit card if you spend $500 or more and free shipping. We bought a new washer and dryer and it came out to $600. They didn't want to give us the free shipping because they said the $500 had to be on one item. I fought them and one because the ad did not say that.
Two months ago, I got a coupon for 10% off if you buy a printer for $150 or more or a scanner for $100 or more. My scanner just crapped out the day before. So I went there and found the perfect scanner/printer combo for $100. They wouldn't honor the coupon because they said that was considered a printer and it wasn't $150. My total bill that day was over $200 with some other stuff we were going to buy. I told them to cancel the order if they weren't going to honor the coupon. I then went right next door to Office Depot and got the same thing for $10 cheaper. Then I went home and e-mailed them about their lost sale.
Two weeks ago, I got to pick up JLU season 1 and they didn't have any. I go to get a raincheck and they system says they have 8 in stock. After finding someone to check, and waiting 20 minutes, they told me they couldn't find them. Then, gave me a hard time about the raincheck, insisting that they couldn't give it to me because they had 8 in stock. I got the raincheck, but was so mad that I left there and went to Target.
But the straw that broke the camels back was last week when I got my Best Buy card bill and they charged me a $29 late fee. I mailed the bill two weeks early last month and they cashed it two days after the due date. I called the credit card company and they blamed the mail. They refused to reverse the $29. At which point I closed out my account. I then e-mailed them again and told them that I was never shopping at Best Buy again and that Target was getting all my business.
That week that they couldn't find JLU, they were also out of another DVD I was looking for, and they were also out of Ultimate Alliance and Justice League for PS2. Had I being looking to also buy those, they would have lost a lot of money that day. And the worst part was, they didn't care.
