So Bass Pro sent us their flyer for the middle of August sales that they will be having. And They have some AMAZING prices. Shocked

They are such great deals that you MUST go out and spend our money!



It is the same crossbow I got, its a great crossbow, bought one for my Godfather when it was on special before too. I got suckered into the "regular price".

Its better then the Excalibur 225lb crossbows everyone I know has, and tests on shooting tree's has shown the Barnett will out preform the Excalibur in penetration when using the recommended set up that Excalibur has, verses a Barnett with properly weighted bolts and the 125gr Thunder Heads.

But enough about the crossbow itself, if you realized it or not, I have just been blabbing on to make some filler space so I can keep you from seeing this picture next. Cause if I just put white space some of you would just skip down and wouldn't get my SARCASM about Bass Pro's specials that I was saying above the first picture.

Bass Pro has a history of putting "sale prices" on stuff that were listed regularly at that same price anyways to cause people to go in and shop. A few of us noticed it but since this is with the crossbow I personally own, and its a very interesting difference I just had to post it.

Anyways without further ado, this is Bass Pro's regular price for the crossbow, picture taken less then a hour ago when I was there.



So go quick and spend your money! By the way when Bass Pro has had this bow on special without it being in the flyer it was listed at 399.99$ which is the price my Godfather bought it at. wtf

Maybe I am wrong, but when something is wrong (or outright illegal such as this) in this world, is it not best to talk about it and share it?

So that others may learn?

How is this illegal? I would expect if you showed them the other price they would honor it.

Its illegal to raise your price in this manor, both in Canada and the US. It has been for a very long time.

Consumer protection laws in both countries make it illegal to raise your price and relist something "on special" at a higher price for the sale. There are time limits in the law a company must wait for when raising a price before listing it on sale for a cheaper price.

Another law rarely enforced. Big Y, a local grocery chain, always raises its list price on items before it sells them as "buy one, get one free"
You just have to realize what they are doing.

Yes rarely enforced. Mainly cause no one complains to the Consumer Protection people of the government.

If a major retailer pulled a stunt like that over here, they'd be looking at a fine plus costs with at least four zeros after the number.
Smaller companies might get a zero knocked off.

After their first reply that they were forwarding the email to the "appropriate department" I got this today.

Quote::
I am in receipt of your email regarding a sale price of a crossbow. I need more information on what bow you are talking about. Price changes do occur frequently due to dollar fluctuations market conditions etc. Flyers are printed months in advance of the ads and price changes can occur in the meantime. Price changes are covered in a disclaimer on the back of each flyer. If you give me more details on which bow you are inquiring about I will look into it.

Regards,

To which I simply replied ...

Quote::
The Barnett Quad 400 Crossbow is the specific bow. The bow is currently listed at 389.99$ on the Bass Pro site, which is 408.52$ in Canadian Dollars at the time I am writing this email. The Canadian dollar excuse does not hold water. Which ever way you justify the price increase, increasing the regular price at the same time as putting it on "sale" is illegal in both Canada and the United States and its unacceptable. I contacted Bass Pro first to give you guys a chance to fix this, if its not fixed then I will simply contact the Ministry of Consumer Services about this.

Maybe they will smarten up.

Dimitri
