Target puts nonexistent New Nintendo 3DS XL on sale

From Target’s weekly ad published today:

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┬áthe same. Target doesn’t have any New Nintendo 3DS XL consoles for sale.┬áTarget 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.
