Target advertised a 4-DVD Ocean's Eleven gift set for $8.99 for Nov.29 to Dec.5, which would be a great deal since the set normally goes for $20 and even Amazon doesn't match that price. Went to my nearest Target mid-morning Nov.
29; they were all out. OK, no big deal, bad luck. Went to another one on my way to work on the 30th--one that had the set in stock according to Target.com--and was informed by a clerk that "we didn't get it yet." Hmmmm, you didn't yet stock an advertised item that was supposed to be available since yesterday? At that point I concluded I was the victim of the dishonest baiting tactics I've been reading about, so I immediately dropped the other merchandise I was going to purchase and left angry.
Just checked the weekly flyer feature on Target.com and now, poof, a window pops up that says "no additional information is available" when you click on this product. Walks like a scam, talks like a scam......I used to like Target, not so much anymore.
