Staples advertised "80 page coil notebooks" for 5 CENTS each.
Great offer ofcourse. What made it even better? The fact that they explicitly stated on their flyer next to this item "Guaranteed In-Stock".
So I get to the store, and what do you know...They're sold out.
I talk to the store manager and ask for some form of compensation, yet the best they could do is provide us with 2 of the notebooks since they were waiting on their new shipment.
So I go to ANOTHER staples store about 15 minutes away from the first, and they have the exact same thing going on. They're sold out on their advertised offer, yet are offering only two notebooks per family when the customer complains.
It is absolutely ridiculous that they label their item as GUARANTEED IN-STOCK, and then they run out of them. I had the idea that I could stock up on these, but ofcourse, the offer was too good to be true.
