Walmart did the same scam today that I read happened in 2008. They advertised a 51 inch TV.
that were supposed to go on sale at midnight, However, when my children and I got there, they were already gone. We arrived 2 hours and 15 minutes before midnight. We asked an assistant manager and she told us that she had given out the tickets for the TV at 7:30 pm that evening. I went home and looked through all their newspaper ads.
I could not find any place where it indicated that the store would be giving out tickets prior to midnight. I had even talked to a clerk the day before Thanksgiving and asked about the sale. The clerk told me to come in ahead of time and stand in the area where the TV's would be sold.
This is very irritating! It seems like false advertising to me!
