Parts Counter Tricks of the Trade - September 21, 2006, 02:08 PM

Don't anyone fall for this trick and it really pisses me off!

You tell the clerk that you get 10% off.
They say ok.
They look up the part and then the little code that tells them the price.
They look up in the back of the book the price and punch it into the computer.
I then remind them of the 10%, they do their little computer trick and say well this is what it would have been with out the discount.
All they are doing is adding 10% to the real price to make you think you are getting the discount.
I had it out with this guy and told him if he wasn't going to give me the dam discount say so but don't lie to me.
I have had too many instances with this place and probably won't be back but just thought I would warn!

I buy from a guy I grew up with who works at a local motorcycle shop. I know he doesn't do that. I am bigger than him and will punch him in the dome piece.

If your lazy ass ever looked in the catalog most of them put the retail price right in them. If you truely get 10% off it will be in the puter and be reflected in the final price.

coleman's parts dept parts guys are bad at their job. I'm surprised that they were able to figure this little heist out.

What they are doing is taking a real price of $299 adding 10% so the price is actually higher than it should be so your receipt actually reads $328.90 so that it makes it look like you got 10% off but in reality you should have gotten it for $269.10.
In the books at the parts counter the price is not next to the item.
The item has a part number that they then look up in the back of the book.
They look at it very quickly and close the book.
If you are in fact not paying attention it can happen to you.
I am not lazy, did ask to see the real price, did not get scammed, but it was an attempt that I could see them trying on many unsuspecting.
Mine was to let others know what they are doing.
I already knew the price from the retailer going in so I knew what it should be.
It was just that everytime I called him on it he kept trying to play his game.
Yes, I almost walked. Another salesman later came up to me knowing what the other one had done and said in the future if I wanted he would take care of me and wouldn't pull this shit!

You're not dealing with the right people then because I will back either spider or Derek at the Woodbridge location.

Yes Johnny, you're probably right. I have had bad expereinces (repeatedly) with one guy who seems to always be at the desk at the Falls Church store. Just today I found myself ordering parts online that I would have bought from him if he had just known how to find them (like a battery for a bike that they have three of on the floor! pretty sure that's either in stock or can be ordered)
