I had to take my car for a front end alignment yesterday. Turned out that it also needed need tie-rod part replaced also.
So when it came time to pay up, I whipped out my AAA card because there is supposed to be a discount @ this place. The guy checking me out says, "Oh, he's already marked you down for discounts,,, here & here." So there was no AAA discount. The bill originally was $229, but with the "discounts" it was $174.
I know we Americans love our "sales" but somehow this seemed ... oh, I dunno.... fishy? It was like nothing had been said about a sale on this service/parts, no coupons, no advertisement. I hadn't even discussed price when I called to schedule. I'm sure if it had only been a AAA discount it would've only been 10%, so I got more this way, so I wouldn't have wanted to argue the point (& looked completely daft).
Sales usually make me "feel good".... this left me feeling like there's some trickery afoot. Knowwhatimean?
