If you read their ads, everything on sale has a guaranteed stock. Most of the time it's between 2 to 10.

So if you didn't get your butt out of bed and be the first in line when their ads go live on Sunday. Someone else did. Your loss.

Stores being different prices. That happens. Stores in major metro areas (for any retailer) have higher prices. Cost of doing business is higher. But just like someone else wrote, they match their national website for prices. They did that for me on a movie that was $7 cheaper online then in store.

When a unit is sold for a price with a model number attached to it that's called merchandise for sale. Re-market the exact same unit with a different model number and a new higher price and say the old unit is forever b/o'd. That's bait and switch because you've been hooked on the low price and now, for convenience sake, you can get the same unit for 3x as much right away. They got me on that and they lost my business for good. I paid $10 more at Sears for the same item without regrets.

if these were advertised like you said they were then they would have to match the price in the ad (false advertising).

You are being ridiculous. Also, write something that is concise and makes sense - spelling and grammar is pretty simple.

Firstly, if it's out of stock; it's out of stock. That means they sold out of the ones that they did have in stock for the advertised price. Secondly, Best Buy does not remove demo models until the unit is clearance or "gone when gone". Thirdly, the flyer clearly states all the necessary jargon, also know as common sense.

Grow up and stop complaining.

Sorry, but this is not "Bait and switch", as defined by law. More likely, what you ran into was a difference in price due to a "Market reaction". In any event, check the prices on first, as they are usually lower, and the store will match that price.
