Dream Sofa Update #1

You might remember yesterday, I posted about this beautiful lounge that I'm absolutely in love with.

Unbeknownst to me then, the retailer had 30% off all fabric lounges.  Oh.my.dog.  Done deal, let's buy two!!  He with the money (Husband) rang up to enquire, and was told that the price I was taking the 30% off was the introductory price, and that the lounge would actually be about the same price as I originally thought it was, as the introductory offer had ended.  Oh well, too bad, so sad, not paying that price for something we don't need for another six months.  There'll be another sale.  Yadayadayada.

Enter the wonder of the internet.  The lounge was still advertised at said 'introductory price', less 30%.  Holy cow, game on.  Rang Husband 37 times to say, ring back, they need to match the internet price.  Blah, blah, blah.  Husband doesn't answer.  Ugh!  Re-check website.  In the twenty minutes between the initial phone call, checking the internet and getting Husband back on the phone, they'd updated the web price.  Evidently, they'd had A LOT of calls RE: this lounge.  They must have realised that the web site hadn't been updated, and gotten onto it toot sweet.

RANT OVER.  Thank you for reading, if you've gotten this far!!

So, whilst the today price is fantastic, it is not a 'buy today' price.  There will be another sale.  We'll buy it at Christmas time.  So, never fear, there will be a 'Dream Sofa Update #2' and more, when we get this baby in situ.

I really hope that the other people who rang up got the lounge at the internet price.  This really demonstrates the importance of ensuring details are updated, friendly retailers!

Now I'm off to 'not watch' the NRL GF.  Happy Sunday, peeps and a special "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" shout out to a lovely cousin.
