So today I'm just thoroughly disgusted with Macy's due to their INSANE overpricing! and their deception!

Why am I so mad at this? LOL! not quite sure except for the fact that I just can't stand by and say nothing when people are getting taken advantage of...people work hard for their money and for their families, and being over charged $100 especially during the holidays is freakin' ridiculous! That's just bad business! And a company like that doesn't deserve families hard earned money!

If you want to read more of my diatribe of why I'm mad about this lol- well here was my email to Macy's this morning- (email sent to Macy's 'Tell us what you think Customer Service Dept.')

My problem with your lame store is that you are over pricing and being completely deceptive and its sickening!You are over pricing Breville juicers by $50 and $100 !! that's INSANE! Your SO CALLED "sale" price is the REGULAR price at Brevilles online store, and the same as Bed Bath and Beyond. I'm going to tell every single person that I come in contact with, every single day, my family, friends, co-workers, and also forward an email to every single person on my list, and make everyone else to forward emails too, on and on and on, (which will equal to hundreds if not thousands of people telling what a deceptive over pricing store you are and to BOYCOTT Macys- ESPECIALLY FOR THE ENTIRE HOLIDAY SEASON THIS YEAR!! The fact that you make people 'think' they are getting a 'great sale price' when actually they are getting a normal price is just disgusting, and you should be ashamed of yourselves! for example-the elite model juicer at is 299.99 same at bed bath & beyond.... but you guys are selling it for 399.99 the plus model Breville JE95XL at is 149.99 same at bed bath & beyond....but you guys sell it for 199.99

They already emailed me back an hour later saying this:

The team

First off - I don't appreciate your business! and No thanks! but I will NOT be shopping at (of course I know this is just a general automatic pity email sent to a complainer like myself-lol :) but is it really complaining if I'm trying to help people save some bucks? and stand up for us poor folk who can't afford to throw an extra 100 bucks down macys money hungry throat, I may-as-well wipe my butt with a crisp $100 for that matter)

I will post their next email to me...stay tuned if your interested lol! :)

Good for you!! Sad thing is--it's not just Macy's. All the large department stores seem to do this. I never go into a department store and pay full price for anything. If something I want isn't on sale--I wait. They run sales every single week, but not in every department. One week all the jewelery may be 50% off and the appliances are not on sale. Then the next week it's the opposite.

Thanks :) whats crazy is that they are charging $100 past the full price! and I have never seen a store do it that outrageous. In this day and age it seems most stores even higher priced stores do keep prices reasonable due to their competition. I think Macy's has thrown reason out the window.

Oh and congrats on your colonic! :)
