Kmart / misleading advertisement!

1 CA, United States Review updated:

I noticed the ad for Kmart's jewelry sale, which states up to 70% off items. Unfortunately, when I arrived, they said that "incredible buys" were excluded. Well, that was fine. Then, I noticed a case that revolves around and displayed earrings in the locked case. I inquired about a pair. The associate said it would be around $15.00 (due to the red-tag sale). When she rang it up, it came to the original listed price. Then, she called in the jewelry supervisor who had absolutely no customer service at all. The supervisor then said that it was "regular price, meaning in the real world. Why would we sell real fine jewelry for $15.00?"

What irks me the most is that the red tag sale implies on all items (except for the "incredible buys). The jewelry supervisor stated that it was "70% off regular price." To me "regular price" insinuates the listed price on item, in this case $49.99. Thus, K-mart is misleading the consumer. They should say "ALREADY reduced 70% off." The former ("70% off regular price" implies that the reduction will still be applied when the item is ready to be checked out).

    I went to a Kmart here in Jacksoonville Store #7265. The receipt I got indicates that if I come to this site I might win $2500.00 on a gift card from Kmart! If this is a scam then I will not be shopping at Kmart again ever! the receipt number is 07265 081908 002 00905 on the 18th of August 2008. their phone number is 904-268-3325

    I made a large purchase from Kmart on 09/07/08. I have made many attempts to access the website to do the survey for the $2500.00 gift card and there is no website, I have been navigated to may other pages. I have tried calling the store a couple times and no one answers. this is a shame, I thought Kmart was on its way back to being a decent store. How wrong am I?

    They could have just handed you your items to carry out if they wanted to be tastless. You likely visited the store just after our new ordering system came into affect when Corporate chose to switch who and how we got such store items as bags. It now takes a month to get them in after ordering but no one was told that at the store level so many Kmarts found themselves without the regular sized bags or without bags altogether and were using layway bags, trash bags, etc.
