Not resolved

You advertised in the Sunday Newspaper Ad a new 60" Samsung Smart TV 1080i 120 refresh rate television and your stores do not have it to sell.I went to the store when they opened that Sunday (yesterday) and was told they did not have any of these televisions.

I asked them to check another store. They did and told me the only store that had one in 300 miles was 1 in Watauga TX (where ever that is). Nowhere near me. All the other stores listed it as LIMITED STOCK.

But when told that Limited Stock meant the 1 television they had on display that they could not sell, there was only one 60" TV they could find in this whole area of TEXAS (Watauga - wherever that is). BUT they offered me a Samsung 55" Smart TV for the same price. I didn't want a 55" I wanted the 60" advertised.

This is a typical situation of BAIT & SWITCH by TARGET and I am incredibly unhappy with TARGET over this.I'll never shop at TARGET again.

I didn't like: Not carrying items anywhere near my area that you had advertised.

BBB and Target contacted me. They have removed this ad ( online and papers). For those who found this TV and got a good price ( good for you), for those who didn't and settled for the 55" for $599.99 you can get a price adjustment. TARGET is now selling the 55" for $459.99. For those who want a 55", it's now at a good price. For the guy who just likes to pick fights with people on this website, I hope your life is full of what you think you dish out. For most people, if you are truly a pissed off consumer, just go to the BBB and file your complaint. You do get the companies full attention and you don't have to put up with other people's opinions and attitudes.
I'm pretty sure the Sunday ads are not location specific and print for EVERY Target everywhere and usually/sometimes includes online. If the item going on sale is a hot ticket item, they usually clear out within the first few hours until the next truck.
It sounds to me that your store tried to do you a favor for the inconvenience as the actual store isn't responsible for whats printed in the Sunday ads and you threw a fit.

Not sure, one person is trying to warn unsuspecting buyers about questionable sales ads and ethics and the other seems to be constantly trying to pick a fight with the OP and keeps insulting them and calling them undeserving a liar. And the site repeated the comments 4 times, not 6 or 2. Must be a gliche in the posting site. Either way the one guy seems lie a deliberate antagonist and should be booted from the site.

Good grief, OP, what is with this arguing back and forth?
The OP

The OP is too immature to admit that he is wrong. He was told he was wrong and this is not considered bait and switch. So he came to the conclusion that MakeMyDay2016 works for Target which is pretty silly and foolish. Then he made other false claims apparently, and even blamed makemyday2016 for making the same post six times when it was only twice. He blamed Makemyday2016 for something that is wrong with the site and he has no control over. He is just an immature five year old stuck in an adult body. The statement saying you live in your parents basement another assumption shows his immaturity. In others the OP thinks it is okay to insult and bash others but cannot take it in return. He does not have the balls to do so.
Number one, I didn't say you worked for Target; I ASKED you if you work for Target. Question not Accusation. Your defensive and insulting attitude is what I would expect from a kid living in his parents basement. Your time responding all day also makes me wonder if you are even employed. If so you have a lot of time on your hands. You come across like a mindless computer geek. You make accusations about my age, mental aptitude, intelligence and call me names. Big deal. I'm not going to give you the satisfaction. I still say what Target is doing across the nation is bait and switch. I could care less what you and your friends think or say. I am not a liar and my comments are to warn others not to fall for this petty ploy by a large commercial conglomerate. Done with this site.
You also said that I live in my parents basement, that I made six replies when the site is glitched, that I am trolling because I disagree with you. Maybe if you did not behave like a retard one would not assume that you are a child. Maybe if you did not make claims like I probably work at Target, or live in my parents basement I would not see you as dimwitted. This is not bait and switch and if you do not know the difference between four and six than you are not the bright. Even a two year old can tell how much is four and how much is six. You ASSumed that I made those multiple posts called me childish when the site is glitched. I guess you can call people childish but when someone calls you out it hurts your feelings. You made fun of my mental aptitude, my intelligence and you have nerve to complain about me. Grow up. Oh and the site is being glitchy again so before you act immature and uneducated it was not me posting the message four times it is the site glitch. Another lie you told. Why did you lie about me living in my parents basement. DId your parents not teach you any better. You don't want to be called a little boy than stop acting like a child. As you can see other people agree with me. You are obviously immature thinking that you are right and everyone else is wrong.
Also why would you ASSume I work for Target. Because you are too immature to admit to being wrong? That is why I questioned your age and intelligence, only a dimwitted person or young child would ASSume that I work for Target because I told you that I was wrong. I am just going to give you some advice. If you don't want someone to think you are dimwitted or a child don't ASSume that just because a person tells you that you are wrong. I am not the only one that finds your behavior immature, other people do as well. You are done with this site because you are too immature to admit being wrong. You also told other lies which you are not addressing, like lying about me living in my parents basement and living off them. Why is it okay for you to make lies and insults but not us. Because it hurts your feeling and makes you want to cry to mommy. Guess what if you don't have the balls to be insulted or ridiculed don't do it yourself wimp; Don't start things you cannot finish.
Also retard, saying I live in my parents basement, and stating I made a post six times when it was four times and that because of a site glitch. Saying I am trolling. and a whole bunch of other things are ASSumptions and lies. But I apologize for how I treated you. Mommy obviously never raised you the right way. Maybe because she was a drunk and did not love you? If she did raise you the right way I am sure she is disappointed in how much of an uneducated immature person you grew up to be.
