Probably a typo, what are you going to do, sue them?

 

Actually you could, especially in California. There are stringent laws in place. Class action lawyers could have a field day with this sort of thing, especially with RBG track record.

To me, raising prices ahead of site-wide percent-off coupons is more egregious and they do it often. There was one recent instance where they didn't which lead to some better-than-average deals from them, but most of the time they raise prices ahead of discounts equaling a net-neutral price after the promo discount.

Numerous stores and websites do that...nothing new in the retail world.

Old and common doesn't make it any less devious...

The subject made you open the email (even though you knew, deep down inside, that if there were 2/$20 polos they were going to be from the WalMart 2009 collection). Then you noticed that the body of the email said 2/$40 hideous Sligo polos. At best you opened their email and didnt go any farther. At worst you had your retina's scorched by an overpriced orange Sligo polo. Meh, bigger things to worry about today (Like if im gonna buy a set of Taylormade EF Dark Smoke PVD wedges from RBG!!!!).

They have a standard trade in bump of 25% if you take credit. The emails all have 15% crossed out and 25 in its place. I have seen 50 on occasion. Either way it's deceptive.

It's not deceptive if they honor it, which I'm fairly certain they do.

You go California! Sue everyone! Even if you don't win the "case" make sure you get you participation ribbon. If you sue enough people, certainly you'll win one of them, or at the least get your cheesy cancer warnings all over everything I buy in OH where we are real men?

It is deceptive to say that 25 is a special deal when I've never seen 15 advertised or offered, other than when it's being used to promote the 25 percent.

It was at 15% about 3 weeks ago for about 3 days; just before a 50% offer.
