Adam Carolla needs to stop lying about Stamps.com

The Adam Carolla Show, a daily podcast hosted by Adam Carolla, features live read ads throughout the show.  One of the more regular ad spots is for Stamps.com, a service that allows you to buy and print postage from your computer.

The United States Post Office also allows you to do the same thing on their website. The difference being that Stamps.com charges $15.99 per month for the privilege, while the USPS lets you buy and print postage free. Continue reading Adam Carolla needs to stop lying about Stamps.com

Target puts nonexistent New Nintendo 3DS XL on sale

From Target’s weekly ad published today:
Target puts nonexistent New Nintendo 3DS XL on sale - Bent Corner
How is Target allowed to put something on sale they don’t have? Target doesn’t have the New Nintendo 3DS XL. They’ve been out of stock since Black Friday.

Here’s a recent photo I took at the Hagerstown Target. It’s the locked case that normally has Nintendo handheld consoles:

I could take another photo this morning and it would look actually the same. Target doesn’t have any New Nintendo 3DS XL consoles for sale. Target hasn’t had any New Nintendo 3DS XL consoles for sale for nearly a month. What does Target do? They lower the price of the non-existent game console from $199.99 to $174.99, saving the consumer $25.

If Target had any. Which they don’t.

If Target is going to place nonexistent products on sale, why lower the price only $25? Why not lower the price all the way down to $49.99? It’s not like they will have to sell any units at that price.

They don’t have any.
