Big Al's Online szenic,

I apologize if you thought my suggestion to wait until Friday was misleading. There was no way for me to know exactly what you wanted and if all of it would be on sale for Friday; I simply gave the information I had available to me regarding most of our sales not yet being active.


Shoot me a PM with the items you wanted to order that were not on sale and we will see what we can do about getting some sale prices going for your order.

Feel free to call me at 888-824-4257 ext 2 (Thomas)

They stated that most sales were not up yet but failed to mention that several sales would also end on BF. And actually I did check the site, at least twice a day in fact. Thanks.
Ok .. Sorry thought you was referring the what I said. Yeah, it's hard to know when it's a great price rather than a regular sale price unless you're tracking prices for several weeks on the items you're interested in. And harder still when some prices are BF prices and others are previous week sale prices.

Sears did something similar in that their online pre-BF "doorbuster" sale Wed night had items that was going to be on sale Thursday but some from the previous weeks ad which were just regular sale items going off sale that night. One of the pitfalls of BF moving up to Thursday instead of Friday.

If you're referring to what I said about the prices didn't appear to be BF prices to me could be because the items I was looking at weren't priced that great, just everyday sale price I can get any day of the week anytime of the year. You may have been looking at items that were some good BF prices. It's up to each person to research what they're buying to determine whether it's a good price or not. It's also a good idea to check the site periodically to know when the sale starts.

If that is the case, clearing your cache / cookies should solve that issue.

If you can post any SKU# of items that are not showing up correctly in cart I can try to get that rectified faster for you!
