|I won a FB contest for a 250 dollar in store credit at VapeXcape, awesome right ?
they looked it up and I was told the mod I wanted was $280 ( chi megan ) however they couldn't give it to me that day. Okay fine what ever ill be back tomorrow to grab it.
So I drove in the next day ( about 30 minute drive each way from my place ). the FB page said they were open on sunday until 8PM, but they were closed. no problem, shot them a message on FB saying they should update the shop hours and didn't think much more of it.
Then when I came in on Monday, some how it magically disappeared from the computer system and they were waiting on VapeXcape Calgary to give them a price.
I went in every day for almost a week, on one of those days the owner had a toothache and was talking about closing early but then he loudly said "I would close early but some whiny @#$^& would post something snotty on facebook"
So the Thursday or Friday when it finally turned up in the computer but something interesting happened.. a $50 price increase. ($330 total).
Don't arbitrarily raise prices to pad the bottom line because you can't afford the contest.
