    JCP Bait and Switch Pricing

     
    Doing some New Years shopping, I was on JCP.com and making some necessary purchases. When I was browsing the lingerie area and found a set of undergarments that advertised both the top and bottom for $7.00. Any lady knows that getting a great top for $7.00 is an awesome price, so I went to order them. When I clicked to order, the price of the bra jumped from $7.00 up to $18.00. I called JCP to alert them as to the sutation and that Id like to order it at the advertised price. They told me that to get the true price that I had to click on the photo. I said no, in the other photos it does give the range of the price, but on this set it clearly says that both items were $7.00 each. I was told that they would NOT honor their price that they advertised and that they would not adjust the price. I said your kidding right? I said if you look at all of the other items, it does give the range of the price for both items an din this one its clear that each one is one price. JCP refused to honor their price even when their representative saw the price. Bait and switch...poor advertising antic.
