so this morning I opened my email , note the time , and found this
Cool, according to the website they had 7 items available. I rang to check and to ask if they could "put one aside".
They refused to ( nicely) which is fair enough , but they confirmed they had 7 avail.
So I jumped in the car and drove into town to buy one.
When I got there,( about 3.5 - 4 minutes later) "sorry we don't have any of those in stock "
me: "wow, you must have sold all 7 in the last few minutes then right?"
pbt:" No, I don't think we've sold any this morning, it's an online special only" , ( the place was relatively empty) "but since you're here can I interest you in another dash cam."
me: "No you *f^$#$#g can't " Your email says it's "instore" and online
pbt: OK, well I'm very sorry sir but we only have them at our dispatch
me: but you said you had seven of them
pbt: well, were sorry
I pulled out my phone and checked , suddenly all stores had absolutely zero stock, I don't recall the stocks for all stores but the certainly were not all zero.
Is this a BS ploy to get people to come into the store?
PBtech are getting worse and worse at this sort of nonsense. Isn't it illegal to advertise something yo know you are going to run out of ?
None of the staff seem to think they even had any.
I'm thinking I'm going to cancel my account with them, they may be the cheapest but they have driven all the smaller operators out of business and now they are using questionable tactics
