Hi folks, I had a bit of an experience today, and thought I'd share it with you, to get some opinions.
First off, I "almost" bought a Yamaha CP5 today. Why "almost"? Well, I went to a website (L.A. Music, in Brampton Ontario Canada). While browsing digital pianos, I came across what seemed to be a very good deal on a brand new Yamaha CP5;,,,, at $1979.99 That struck me as quite a deal, so I called the store to place my order. As I spoke to the sales-rep, I checked up on another item I had ordered from them back in May (Vox AC30HW2x amplifier, w/Alnico Blue speakers). Those are currently back-ordered btw. As we turned our attention to the CP5, and "availability", the rep noticed that the price was "kinda low, considering the list-price of $3299. He asked me to wait a minute, and he'd check something out,,,,, I waited. When he came back, he told me that the price of $1979.99 was an "error". Hmmmmm. He then re-classified the item as $0.00, so that it couldn't be bought on-line. A few hours later, the item re-appeared at $2699.
My question to you is, should they have honoured that price of $1979.99? Do I have a right to be miffed, and, do I have potential recourse?.In the last few months (since May), I've ordered four guitar amps from these folks, totalling $4000. I've been very pleased with their service so far, but I'm really disappointed with how things went today.
Thanks for reading,
