Target.com is offering an Oral-B Pro 3000 toothbrush available for a Clearance price of $35.34 when I go to my account. Also advertised as $65 Off the regular price and 65% Off.
However, there is none available on-line. Checking further down the page (right side) it says limited stock at Fleming Island - visit store to purchase - aisle A43. So would a customer be safe in assuming that Fleming Island Target should have at least 1 unit at the sale price? After 1.5 hours talking to the store's guest services and then the main Target Guest Services they each say "That's not the same one advertised here at the Clearance price".
They further explain it as "the difference is one is Pro (the advertised unit) and one is Professional (which they do have in stock)." There is virtually no difference in the two and on the Oral B website there is no seems to be no difference offered. Anyway the disturbing part of all this is that the Target.com/account site says there is "limited stock at Fleming Island on isle A43.
Target refuses to honor their Clearance price on this toothbrush and I take this as a "bait & switch" scheme for this item. Because they instead say "we have similar items from which to choose."
