I went to the Target in Blaine, MN on June 26, 2012 with my kids to do some grocery shopping. While there, I noticed a sign that said the Dyson 24 Multifloor vacuum was on sale for $219 plus an $80 gift card.
The sign stated the sale lasted through 6/30. I have been wanting Dyson vacuum for awhile so I talked with my husband about it and went back on June 28th to buy the vacuum (dragging the kids along again). I noticed the sign was gone and the vacuum was regular price again. I asked several workers about this and ended up talking to the manager.
She said the price was a mistake and was taken down the afternoon of 6/26 and the vacuum was now regular price - even though the sign said the sale was until 6/30. She said there was nothing she could do and to call customer service.
I called customer service and they said it was the stores problem. I filed a complaint with the BBB for false advertising and we are still fighting about it and I have received NO apology for the mistake or any offer of compensation - just some ridiculous email stating it was a mistake (duh).
