Thumbs down BAIT-N-SWITCH BY AAC


I CONSTANTLY CHECK BACK ON CAMARO5 AT LEAST 5X DAILY TO SEE WHAT KIND OF NEW PRODUCTS ARE BEING RELEASED AS WELL AS WHATS DEALS ARE OUT THERE. LAST WEEK, SATURDAY 11/27/2010, I CAME ACROSS A THREAD THAT STATED:

T10 LED Bulbs (Used for Interior, Sidemarkers, License Plate, Etc.) Just $6.99/Pair!

SO AS I WENT LOOKING FURTHER I SEEMED TO GET MORE AND MORE HOOKED. IN THE THREAD THERE ARE 2 DIFFERENT LINKS, 1 STATES TO BUY NOW CLICK HERE, AND THE OTHER STATES TO SAVE ON SHIPPING COMBINE YOUR ORDER WITH OTHER PRODUCTS AND CLICK HERE. I TRIED LOADING BOTH LINKS MULTIPLE TIMES AND COULDN'T GET EITHER LINK TO LOAD. SO I IMMEDIATELY TRIED CALLING AAC HOPING TO CATCH SOMEONE THERE ON A SATURDAY, NO LUCK. I TRIED CALLING ABOUT 4 DIFFERENT TIMES. I THEN WENT TO THEIR WEBSITE WONDERING IF THE SALE PRICE WOULD BE UPDATED THERE, BUT NO SUCH LUCK, THEY WERE $26.99/PAIR, FAR CRY FROM $6.99/PAIR.

ON MONDAY, 11/29/2010 I CONTACTED AAC FIRST THING IN THE MORNING AND A WOMAN ANSWERED THE PHONE AND I EXPLAINED EVERYTHING THAT I JUST STATED. HER RESPONSE WAS, "SORRY, I DON'T HANDLE THE FORUM POSTINGS, LET ME TRANSFER YOU" I THEN WAITING A FEW MINUTES ON HOLD AND SHE CAME BACK ON THE LINE. SHE THEN WANTED TO CORRECT ME AND TELL ME THAT THEY ARE NOT $6.99/PAIR BUT ARE $26.99/PAIR. I EXPLAINDED THAT THE THREAD STARTED BACK IN MAY OF 2010 AND WAS UPDATED AS RECENTLY AS 11/24/2010 BY AAC. SHE THEN OUT ME BACK ON HOLD. I AGAIN WAITED A FEW MINUTES AND SHE CAME BACK ON THE LINE AND STATED THAT I COULD PURCHASE THEIR 1 L.E.D. 1 CHIP BULBS FOR $6.99/PAIR WITH NO WARRANTY, BUT IF I WANTED THE BETTER BULBS (3 CHIP 3 L.E.D. BULBS WITH WARRANTY) THEY WOULD BE $26.99/PAIR. I TOLD HER THAT THAT WAS A HUGE SWING AND THAT WAS ABSOLUTELY REDICULOUS. I REFRESHED HER MEMORY THAT AAC'S ADD CLEARLY STATES:

These bulbs are used through the 2010 Camaro, if you want to upgrade your lighting to LED here is a great opportunity.

These come in a variety of configurations, the 5 LED versions put off 360 degrees of light (ideal for interior lighting). The chip count has to do with intensity, 1 Chip= Bright and 3 Chip= 3x Brightness.

You can order here:
http://www.automotivelightstore.com/...eledbulbs.aspx

Save on shipping, pair with other great AAC Camaro Accessories:
http://www.automotivelightstore.com/...letcamaro.aspx

SHE THEN SAID THAT I AM READING TOO MUCH INTO IT AND IF I SEND HER A LINK TO THEIR THREAD VIA EMAIL, SHE WOULD HAVE HER INTERNET GUY RE-WORD IT WITH STARTS AT OR DEPENDS ON STYLE AND CONFIGURATION. I STATED THAT THAT WAS FINE AND DANDY, BUT THIS IS FALSE ADVERTISEMENT. AGAIN, SHE REQUESTED THE LINK TO THE THREAD, AND WASN'T TRYING TO HEAR WHAT I HAD TO SAY. I BECAME SO FURIOUS WITH HER THAT I HUNG UP THE PHONE AND STARTED SEARCHING FOR THIS THREAD. CONVEINANTLY, THE THREAD WAS NO WHERE TO BE FOUND AFTER HER "INTERNET GUY" GOT INVOLVED. I SEARCHED FOR 35 MINUTES THROUGHOUT CAMARO5 WITHOUT ANY LUCK. IRONICALLY, THE THREAD IS BACK UP TODAY WITH A LITTLE EXTRA WORDING, BUT I DID ALREADY TELL MYSELF THAT I WOULD NEVER DO BUSINESS WITH A COMPANY THAT PLAYS GAMES WITH CUSTOMERS AND TRIES TO B.S. THEIR WAY THROUGH THEIR MISTAKES.

HOPEFULLY THIS WILL BE A LITTLE HELPFUL FOR THOSE WHO WERE ON THE FENCE, DECIDING WETHER OR NOT TO CONDUCT BUSINESS WITH AAC, YOU KNOW MY STANCE.

Your caps lock has been on since your posting on 11/12.....Please turn it off. Use it sparingly. I checked your other recent posts. All Caps....probably not your fault. On the 'net it just looks like you are yelling. Take a breath and try it again and maybe more folks will listen...My $.02....

I constantly check back on camaro5 at least 5x daily to see what kind of new products are being released as well as whats deals are out there. last week, SATURDAY 11/27/2010, I came across a thread that stated:

T10 LED Bulbs (Used for Interior, Sidemarkers, License Plate, Etc.) Just $6.99/Pair!

So as I went looking further I seemed to get more and more hooked in the thread, there are 2 different links, 1 states to BUY NOW CLICK HERE, and the other states TO SAVE ON SHIPPING COMBINE YOUR ORDER WITH OTHER PRODUCTS AND CLICK HERE. I tried loading both links multiple time and couldn't get either links to load. So I Immediately tried calling AAC hoping to catch someone there on SATURDAY, no luck. I tried calling about 4 different times. I then went to their website wondering if the sale price would be updated there, but no such luck,they were $26.99/PAIR, far car from $6.99/pair.

ON MONDAY, 11/29/2010 I contacted AAC first thing in the morning and a woman answered the phone and I explained everything that I just stated. Her response was, "Sorry, I don't handle the forum postings, let me Transfer you" I then waited a few Minutes on hold and she came back on the line. she then wanted to correct me and tell me that they are not $6.99/PAIR but are$26.99/PAIR. I explained that the thread started back in may of 2010 and was updated as recently as 11/24/2010 by AAC. She then out me back on hold. I again waited a few minutes and she came back on the line and stated that I could purchase their 1 L.E.D. 1 chip bulbs for $6.99/PAIR with no warranty, but if I wanted the better bulbs (3 CHIP 3 L.E.D. BULBS WITH WARRANTY) they would be $26.99/PAIR. I told her that, that was a huge swing and that was absolutely ridiculous. I Refreshed her memory that AAC'S add clearly states:

These bulbs are used through the 2010 Camaro, if you want to upgrade your lighting to LED here is a great opportunity.

These come in a variety of configurations, the 5 LED versions put off 360 degrees of light (ideal for interior lighting). The chip count has to do with intensity, 1 Chip= Bright and 3 Chip= 3x Brightness.

You can order here:
http://www.automotivelightstore.com/...eledbulbs.aspx

Save on shipping, pair with other great AAC Camaro Accessories:
http://www.automotivelightstore.com/...letcamaro.aspx

She then said that I am reading too much into it and if I send her a link to their thread via email, she would have her Internet guy re-word it with starts at or depends on style and configuration. I stated that, that was fine and dandy,but this is false advertisement. again, she requested the link to the thread, and wasn't trying to hear what I hand to say. I became so furious with her that i hung up the phone and started searching for this thread. Conveniently, the thread was no where to be found after her "INTERNET GUY" got involved. I searched for 35 minutes throughout CAMARO5 without any luck. ironically, the thread is back up today with a little extra wording, but I did already tell myself that I would never do business with a company that play games with customers and tries to B.S. their way through their mistakes.

Hopefully this will be a little helpful for those who were on the fence, deciding wither or not to conduct business with AAC, you know my stance.

================================================== ===




Hope that makes it easy to read!

Hard to read in all caps. Sorry - you can use bold if you have a hard time seeing what you 've typed and it makes it easier for us to read.
Thank you for the warning about a possible scam.

IT DOESN'T STATE ANYWHERE "STARTING FROM" OR "DIFFERENT PRICING FOR DIFFERENT CONFIGURATIONS", IT STATS $6.99/PAIR

If you need Multiple LEDs, 3 Chip, or different Colors you can view this link for pricing: http://www.automotivelightstore.com/...eledbulbs.aspx

Where are you trying to install these bulbs? Perhaps I can assist you with picking out the appropriate LED configuration.

Please let me know if I can further assist

I would appreciate honest feedback from anyone reading this, if that thread seems in any way dishonest PLEASE let me know and I will have it edited immediately
