Additional Notes

Complaint: (I have attached/included a copy of Firestone's advertisement displayed on the company's web site) It displays Buy3GetOneFree-Ltd Qnty at $118.49 each plus taxes and fees. That amount totals to the amount of: $355.47 plus taxes and fees. After arriving to Firestone Garage,the terms & language of offer were different than what had been originally explained to me prior when speaking in detail with customer support online,Mr. *** *** and ****, manager of the store. When speaking with Mr. *** ** , he was asked in simple terms of this offer being in effect on more than one occasion throughout the chat online, & was informed by him several times, "Yes" it was $118.49 Buy 3 get 1 Free. I asked if he could locate a store locally that has the tires in stock, which he found **************e,IL. I asked Mr. *** ** if he could contact the store & find out for sure this was the case. He replied he had spoke with the manager, ****, and to give him a call to set up the appointment. I then spoke to **** by phone which he confirmed the Buy 3 get 1 Free offer so I made the appointment for today. After my arrival, & to my surprise, the terms of the deal were different and had been changed. I was fortunate to contact Mr. *** M;bringing to his attention & reminding him of our previous chat. He remembered. ( I can provide the chat ) I have asked him to look into the matter, so he calls the store I then spoke to **** by phone which he confirmed the offer, so I made the appointment for today. After my arrival and to my surprise, the terms of the deal were different and had been changed. I was fortunate to contact Mr. *** ********** to his attention of our previous chat. He remembered (Ican provide today's chat)I asked for him to look into matter,so he calls the store. First he says they added a $100 warranty and I have to reiterate the issue at hand. Now Mr. *** M. has changed the scenario in favor of the store and has conveniently disconnected me from chatting. Now speaking to the employee at the store, he wants to explain that the deal is 25% off each tire at the price of $157.99 each which comes out to be buy 3 get one free, pointing to fine print on a different piece of paper printed from their site, noting "not combined with any other offer." Clearly their offer was displayed and leads the customer to believe: "Buy 3 Get 1 Free at the sale price of $118.49" and confirmed originally by customer support after inquiring several times who placed to call to arrange the purchase.

Desired Settlement: I'm seeking the difference of cost including taxes and reasonable compensation for my time in the form of refund.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 6, 2014/06/20) */ Contact Name and Title: **** ****** Region Mgr Contact Phone: XXX-XXX-XXXX x 1002 Contact Email: ******* I left a message at the number listed for this customer with a female that answered the phone. The price that was paid for the tires was correct. The regular price for the tire is $157.99 as pictured in the attachment from the customer. The Buy 3 get 1 free price gets the average to $118.49 for all 4 tires. If you click on the get quote button it clearly shows the pricing.
