We keep getting letters in the mail saying Internet 14.95 a month for Internet. So yah that's keel we call in an ask. When we ask about it they say that's in a bundle. So it makes it fifty bucks not 14.95. We get a letter saying you can choose a TV X box or tablet if u r a new customer with 24.95 as the Internet price not no bundle price it says with qualifying Internet service u can pick one of them. So we called in it was a lie they said qualifying means bundle pack well if that's what yah mean then say it don't. Just say something to get pal to call in put the actual package price. An on top of that if you going to just tell somebody they can't get something don't keep them on the phone for two hours it's a big bunch of crap.............
Actually, it's just advertising. It's doing exactly what it's designed to do. Lure you in and hook you with the well illuminated positives and then reveal the negatives.
No different than any other advertising. Like the commercial for a pill that promises to end your existence as a social pariah due to flaky skin. It shows you pictures of people having fun, going on dates and at the end they have some speed-talker blast through the fourty bad things it can do to you. Or every car ad you see on TV. They all have in small type at the bottom "professional driver, closed course, do not attempt" when all they're showing is someone driving their car down a city street, or worse, when they're showing how their great safety features are gonna save your life. (I guess those only work if your a professional driver?)
All "great deals" come with qualifications and/or limitations, and all advertising is designed to highlight the good and gloss over the bad. Unfortunately it's the responsibility of the consumer to perform due diligence before purchasing. The dictionary says the first known use of the term Caveat Emptor is 1523, which means advertising must have started in 1522.
That being said, did you really think they were going to up and give you something potentially worth $400 bucks just for signing up for $15 a month internet?
