Default Feel like I got Di@ked at D ick's!!!

I feel like I got Di#ked at ****'s yesterday!!!
They had Savage Stealth 308 tagged $799.00
Went by early in the morning after work looking for a 6.5 creedmore and they were sold out. So I looked at the Stealth asked the sales guy if that was the correct price and he said yes. Well I talked myself out of buying it and left, drove 100 miles back home. Got home watched a little tv and thought what the heck is wrong with me? Why didn't I buy it!!! ( I know what the gun sells for regular price...$1000) $799 -25% -$100 rebate that's 1/2 price. So I drove back 100 miles, waited in line for 45min for them to call my #. 2 other guys were looking at it, changed there mind. Finally calling out my #, I asked the guy at counter to let me look at it again.. Again I asked him if that was the correct price and he strated yes..
He said $799. - 25% - $40 because gun was priced between $900-500 and the $100 mail in rebate..
So I told him I would take it, he asked for DL and was gone for a while, he came back about 10min later with a store manager. The stated they had made a mistake and had put the gun in the wrong place (mismarked) ...and would not honor the price.. they would give me the gun for tagged price but not the 25% off or the rebate!!!
I read on here where 2 other members bought the same gun.
For that price wth the discounts.. read that after I got home...
What do you guys think?..

The $100 rebate was through Savage, they couldn't have withheld it from you. All their guns are priced individually with a hang tag, was the tag on that rifle listed correctly or was it for a different model?

Even if the rebate didn't print out, you could have still got it off of Savage website.

But was the info on the tag correct or was it a different gun? It should have make and model on the tag as well.

Either one of them or a buddy wanted the gun..
It probably never made it back on the rack.

Couldn't have been all that mad. But definitely some good deals to be had.

I'd write a letter to higher ups. They made an offer to sell and you accepted. That is a completed sale. It's not like it was just sitting of a shelf incorrectly marked. You had direct interaction with sales staff and even gave them multiple opportunities to correct the error prior to the sale. You have at least $40 in fuel costs associated with this. Keep it professional and don't be an ***** about it, pointing out that you spent a good amount with them anyways. Not saying you will get the gun but they should go out of their way to make it right. They already know you have multiple options to spend your cash elsewhere. Good luck.

This! Definitely worth pushing to "make it right". Competition is fierce.

I got a 6.5 and a shotgun, did the background (governments website was down and it took 3 hours) and went to check out. While checking out I saw a guy getting a shockwave and decided I needed one too. So, I went to the back of the line.

Waited around for about 90 more minutes to find out the guy I saw at the counter getting the shockwave, got the last one. And I waited around for nothing. The kids working the counter and the manager had been working for hours straight, you can imagine what the sale did to their free time. The gun counter was a mad house.

The signs I saw had the 25% off sale ending on Sunday night, is anywhere still honoring the 25% off?

I was kicking myself for not buying an axis with the 25%off at $379 I think. Looked online today and cabellas had the axis at $279 plus I'll still get the savage rebate. It's ordered. All said and done my scope will cost more than the rifle.

I agree that itís a screwed up deal, and I would write a letter to their corporate On the other hand, a sale is not completed until money changes hands!

The clerk made an error. The 25% off was until Sunday. You should have been there over the weekend if you wanted a great deal.

Poor choice of words on my part. If an offer is made and it is accepted then a verbal contract of sale has been established. However the exchange of money does not complete a sale but the satisfying of all terms by both parties of said contract.

I went out of my way on the way home from the deer lease on Sunday (Bee Cave Store) to check out the deals. All ammo looked marked up from the prices I'm used to seeing and gun counter picked over pretty good.
The lines at the register were crazy long too, It would have to have been a heck of a deal to stand in that sucker.

I called a Field & Stream store (they carry pistols & Dicks doesn't) for a price on a pistol I've been jonesing and the price they gave, after 25% off & + tax was still about $40 more than Buds even after FFL fee was considered.

I'm happy for those who got a "great deal", it just wasn't meant to be for me.
