About 3 hours later the guy calls me and tells me that he made an error in pricing and neglected to include the cost of two additional pieces of the bed (frame and foot board). He had correctly charged me for the pedestal and headboard only.
I will ask for them to honor the price they sold the bed to me for but I don't think it will fly.
I can ask for them to split the difference with me.
I can walk away and start my search again however I have little desire to do so.
Call me a cynic too, but this sounds just two closely to standard corrupt sales practices. I had this tried on me more than once after buying a car and I consider car salesmen on average more ethical than furniture/mattress salesmen (and that is not saying much).
Additionally, frames are routinely included on beds costing less than half this amount. I call foul on this sleezy tatic. I don't believe for a second this is an honest mistake. This is an after the effect extortion.
I would insist they honor the price.
