Why advertise an item never in stock??

[ Edited ]

Why does Best Buy continue to advertise Vizio 24" smart tv and never in stock or on line?  Will not offer rain check.

Could be something that sells out pretty fast, its probably not a very popular size so they could only get in a few of them

Any reason why the store couldn't give you a raincheck?

Keep in mind the raincheck only guarantee's the price for 30 days not the product.

They do that to get you in the store. To buy other product. Its an advertising scheme to get you in the store.

It's not a ploy to get you into the store.Smiley LOL

Keep in mind that this is a national web site, and it's possible and probable that another store in the country still has inventory of the item.

As @Computers_Mike mentioned, you should be able to get a raincheck, you can also ask at a customer service desk if they are capable of locating which store in the country has inventory, and ship it to you directly from that store.Smiley Wink
