I check the American Girl website every morning to see if they have any new items on sale. Today they are advertising Grace’s Bistro Set on sale at 50% off and free shipping if you order it. There’s just a major math error! Grace’s Bistro Set sells for $85. The sale price is $51. Um, excuse me a second, but that’s NOT 50% off!!! It’s only 40% off.
Just another thing that makes me wonder about the monkeys running the show at American Girl. I can’t believe that NO ONE working on the website or promoting this sale caught that. Oh, wait–they must be a bunch of English Majors who are lousy at math! (no offense intended to English Majors who ARE good at math)
For goodness SAKE, get it right. This is exactly why I no longer store my credit card information with my account, sloppy sloppy sloppy.
It brings me to another question–anyone else having difficulty viewing their previous orders on the website? I can get as far as the list of orders but when I click on them to view them in detail, I get an error message. I e-mailed them and all I got was an answer that “you’ll have to call”. Seriously?
(They have now removed the 50% off banners after I sent them a notice via Twitter. I’m sure I wasn’t the only person who caught it too. I think they need a new webmaster.)
