I bought bed from Costco for $699, 1 month and a week before the day of the event.
On a recent trip to Costco I passed by the location of where the very same bed is displayed and I see that they had crossed off the original price, and with a marker they have written and reduced the price to $499. I asked customer service if I could get a refund on the bed, and I was told to get my receipt and ask again.
As soon as I found the receipt home, I called them to verify what they had told me at the store. She said that there was no reduced price, even when I had taken photos of the price tag.
So when I returned to Costco within 20 minutes, I found out that they hid all of their stock of the exact item in question. I don't believe anyone had purchased about 6 beds and had them all fork lifted out of the store in 20 minutes. The items comes in 3 large and heavy boxes. They must have dragged the items to another location hidden from the customers view. And when I approached customer service after this happening, they completely denied that they have hid their items, and said that it was all sold out.
I was more upset about how they treated me. It was as if all I've seen was an illusion. Rarely would they assist customers in a timely manner, and no way had someone bought all those beds and exited the building in 20 minutes or less.
