Last week I saw Sam's Club was going to be having a big sale that upcoming weekend and one of the items was the new iPhone 6 for only $99. And I just happened to be in the market for a new iPhone 6.
Mama C who isn't usually up for waiting in line just to get a better deal was willing to go with me.
We had planned our Saturday we would wake up and get there early around 9 since Sam's opens at 10, get my new phone and have the rest of the day to do what we wanted. Great plan, except we figured out at about midnight that Sam's was opening early for the special sale. We would now need to get up at 4:30 in order to be ready and out the door since Sam's is about 45 mins away in order to get in line.
4:30 a.m. rolls around and we decide we will wait and pay full price since we weren't prepared ahead of time.
Later in the day we happen to be going by Sam's for some other things anyway and while we were there one of the girls working asks if we would like to upgrade our membership to the Plus membership. I asked her if they would be getting anymore iPhones in since they were sold out and she assured me that if we upgraded they would be having a sale this past Saturday with the same iPhone deal for the plus members only.
Mama C upgraded and I planned ahead this time and made plans to wake up at 5:30 Saturday and be in line early. Some of my friends were in town and we were celebrating my birthday and one of my best friend's birthday so I knew I would be up late but willing to make the sacrifice of sleep. Friday I called just to verify that they would have them because the sale paper we got in the mail didn't show they would be available. The lady on the phone assured me once again they would.
I met my sister at Sam's Saturday morning at 6 a.m. we got in line...
Sam's Girl: "What deal are you girls after today?"
G: "Were getting the Iphone 6's."
Sam's Girl: "Oh haha thats next weekend."
Me: "umm you're kidding me right?!" (death glare)
Sam's Girl: "uh I uh yeah we will have them next weekend you can come back then."
I had no words. G and I went to the car and I called to speak with a manager who told me he was sorry they wouldn't have the special that day but I could come back Black Friday and try again.
