    Default daily deal sold out

    Hummm….loaded up my cart today with the couch to quilt kit...$49 and 10 yds of duck canvas but needed to check on a color...Went to town to get a trundle bed and was going to cover the mattresses and make it into a sitting couch. Was really excited to get the $10 off and wanted the couch to quilt kit for a granddaughter. Came back home and logged in and decided on the grey and lo and behold my couch to quilt kit had gone up to $99. Not sold out...just gone up in price...then I go to the daily deal and they are offering a Christmas fabric. I didn't order today. I am disappointed....I think I can get fabric for the trundle later.

    It must have sold out very early. I checked in early afternoon and it was already gone.

    How is it sold out if they still have it? Seems like a bait and switch.

    Maybe they could only afford to sell so many at that price? But I think if you tried to order it now you would find it is on back order until they can put together more kits.

    The DD usually say "Limited quantities available at this price." I have noticed sometimes they "sell out" at the sale price, only to have the same item available a few hours later or the next day at the regular price.

    Terry,
    How disappointing. I've discovered if there's something I really want, I need to order it ASAP or it will be sold out. It's frustrating when it's something you really want & miss out. Hopefully you'll find something that will work another day.

    To accuse them of "bait and switch" is uncalled for. Often times a great sales price is for a limited quantity of that item. And when they reach that limit, the deal is gone even though more of that item remains in the store. There is nothing wrong with this practice. If you are quick enough, you get the deal. If you snooze, well, you sometimes lose. It happens to all of us. That's life.

    Well said Suzette! It is the way things are when shopping on-line or in brick and mortar stores. Sometimes sales/specials are good for a limited time only sometimes there is a limited quantity only. Personally I was not interested in the couch quilt yesterday and when I noticed the "new" DD-thanks for posting Terry-I went for the jelly roll. I was glad M* chose to offer a new DD option.

    I snoozed too long also. I have a friend that wants to learn to quilt and we thought this would be a great starter. Well I snoozed too long after talking to her that morning. So, now she gets to pick out her own charm pack and use my tools. Glad I looked at the price in my shopping cart before finalizing.
