I went to the Frys store on Matlock and I-20 in Arlington, TX. There is a huge sign out front that says "We Match Internet Prices." Then in fine print it says "*See Store for Details." So I go in I find the item that I want and it is marked $19.99.
Now because of the great invention of Smart phones I was able to look on line and find it online for $15.53. I asked and was told, "That is not one of our authorized price match competitors."
So I went to see the manager. I told him "You have a sign that says 'We Match Internet Prices.' Is that correct?"
He said "Yeah, that's right."
I said "Well the guy in the back told me that the internet price was not an authorized price matching competitor.”
To which the manager responded “Well we don’t match all internet prices.”
I said “But your sign doesn’t say that.”
The manager said “But it says see store for details.”
I said, “So what you are telling me is that you match internet prices but not all internet prices?”
“So what your sign should really say is ‘We Match Internet Prices, Except When We Don’t Want To.’”
“Well now sir, it isn’t like that.”
“So what is it like?”
“Well, we have really good prices, so we are not going to match a clearance price at a competitor, or something like that.”
“So you match internet prices except when they are lower than yours?”
“Something like that.”
