on the phone now - the guy looked up my order - saw what I ordered and immediately said "oh no, not another one of these."!!!
I went through and explained my whole belief as to why they were cancelled ($$$) and also shared with him about how my last 2 orders I have made on their site have for the most part been cancelled. I am now on hold - I suspect he is talking with a supervisor.
he came back with saying that he made a note on my account and said that if it ever came back in stock I could get them to honor their initial cost plus expedited shipping and additional savings.
I then told him that I have no faith in their web site or them intending to honor this agreement by not ever putting them back up for sale - that they are just giving me false hopes on something they never intend to fulfill.
I told them to also consider that, if I do find this in the store, and purchase my items, to be able to reimburse me the difference from my transaction by me providing them with my receipt info.
Kevin, the CS agent on the phone, was very apologetic and understanding and because of my discontent now off of 2 orders from their site escalated my issue and I should be getting a response within 24 hours.
