Re: [Rant] Bait and Switch
said by ExoticFish:Bait - Bait advertising is an alluring but insincere offer to sell a product or service which the advertiser in truth does not intend or want to sell. Its purpose is to switch consumers from buying the advertised merchandise, in order to sell something else, usually at a higher price or on a basis more advantageous to the advertiser.
In the end, I wouldn't call this "bait and switch" by any means.
Switch - Accepting a deposit for the advertised product, then switching the purchaser to a higher-priced product.
You can twist it around how ever you want but what you originally described was not a bait and switch, and I wasn't the only one to say that. What it boils down to is you're annoyed at the situation. So good luck after you cancel Comcast and hope your daughter is happy with her service. And like I said, all she has to do is call in and they will very easily renew her promo pricing.
