I put in a call to my friend who works for Zellers to get an answer, so far he hasn't gotten back to me. When (and if he knows anything) I'll post it.
Best guess? People are on the new automatically applying the discount to the lower priced items you are buying, and are buying items two by two, so, if you buy two sets that are both $100, you end up paying $5O for one. By restricting the deal to the cheaper sets, they don't lose as much money. |
Of particular annoyance to me, my local Zellers is selling both the Darth Vader Tie Fighter and the Indiana Joens Shanghai chase at $42.99 instead of the MSRP of $39.99, thus excluding them from the sale. I have avoided buying them until now, just waiting for such a sale as this. Are these the prices for these items across Canada, or it this just a local screw job?
