Panasonic and Sears / Best Buy Issues

Okay after a lot of research I narrowed down the TV to the S1 or G10 50 inch.

Sears advertises TCP50G10 for 1099 but are out of stock.
Best Buy has in stock but wont honor Sears price coz they are out of stock.

Sears advertises TCP50S1 for 899. Tells me they have plenty in stock. Then go to day and are Out Of Stock and cant even order one. I was kinda pissed coz this TV is on Display with a HUGE RED SIGN THAT SAYS SALES 899.

Finally ask for a manager who Im arguing with because why advertise a product that you cant even get. I can understand being out of stock but they cant even order them themselves.

I eventually get them to hold the prices above when they do eventually come in. The G10 is relatively new so if BB has them Im sure they will eventually too.

These B&M stores kinda suck, and their price match is all BS IMHO.

Actually it did nothing but piss me off.... Waste of time but I got the manager to sign something quoting the current price

So lets hope they get more.

Did you ask about a rain check at Sears?

Best Buy should honour the low price guarantee if the item is advertised in print. How do they know if a competitor is out of stock and why would that matter? Try talking to someone else at Best Buy.

Best Buy had the TCP50S1 on display the other day for like 1099. When I went there yesterday and explained the price of 899 they said we are out of stock on the S1.

Then I showed them the ad online for Sears G10 for 1099 which they have in stock at Best Buy. They checked Sears website or called a local store and was told Sears is out of stock so Best Buy would not honor.

Maybe I will try a different Best Buy and try to get a different answer.

Just wait awhile. I bought my 50 g10 at sears last night and I cant pick it up till the 12th. See if a different sears becuase the one you went to seemed shady. Talk to the manager in that department.
