    Same thing with Kytary. It's a Czech store, but they have web sites set up for a bunch of countries.

    They offered 2% off if you sign up for their newsletter. Tried to redeem the coupon and it said two of the items are already on sale so I can't get the discount. It didn't say anything about the other items I ordered, and I still didn't get any discount.

    No, not complaining to the manager. I have known the senior staff at my GC for over 15 years. They know what can be done when a new associate might not.

    I always wondered if the wording of the exclusion list actually meant "some" products from those manufacturers were excluded from the coupon as opposed to "all."

    But yeah, their coupons always say that.

    This reminds me of a ridiculous experience I had at a large music center in Connecticut. It was a two hour drive for a buddy and me. They had 35% off EVERYTHING. They had radio commercials announcing it. Thing is, what's they failed to mention is that the discount was on the LIST price, so at the most it was a couple bucks off and I actually saw some things that were more expensive than the regular price. That was a long time ago and I'm still fuming over it.

    Exactly. There are a few exceptions but, in general, they’ll honor the coupon. I’m pretty sure it has to do with MAP provisions from the manufacturers.
