on nov19 2012 i purchased from microcenter in paterson nj a nikon cool piks p510 camera and memory sticks. the price that day was $349.99 a big discount from the nikon listed msrp of $429.99. the sales people are either lazies or try to be knowledgeable on items they know little about. i asked to see the box at the area, and was told it's is at the register waiting for you just ask for it. the cashier treated me like i was dirt, when i refused their extended BS warranty. i told him 1 that i was a long time photo person, a certified computer tech and knew that store brand extended warranties are just a well known rip off.
On Nov 22nd in need of some other computer related items like a mother board, for a custom build for a customer of my own. i checked on line for the items needed on newegg and tiger direct and microcenter. and took a look at the nikons price. it was down to $299.99 for black Friday nov 23rd a $50.00 drop. so while there on nov.23rd, i went to customer service,the line was about 20 people deep and a 45 min wait.
asking about the price drop and showing the receipt i was told we don't refund even when there is a price drop, in less then 30 days like a lot of other stores, i was treated like a pile of horse or cow droppings, when i got home i filed a email complaint though their web sites posted area. no return on that yet
now today nov 26 2012 the price for cyber monday they have the price of the nikon p510 is $399.00 saying discount from the full mspr of $429.99 . what gives with them. a $100.00 spread over a time frame of 7 days.
