    If that was the case I think people would still be upset and the same amount of posts would get made regardless,

    That is true. I do notice the milk prices at some places have gone up very high.

    this is true. but still, i was going to get the stand mixer for 95$ instead of the $300 reg price... im so infuriated with their switch that i dont even want to step foot in there to get the darn milk! Its clear that they did NOT make a mistake the first time, that's exactly what they intended to write, but when they realized the implications of such a coupon (a full 4 days later) they tried to get out of it. their marketing team (not just one guy, there are many, and someone should have realized this sale was huge) should all be fired. this is absolutely ridiculous. Zellers is a big enough organization that they should have someone sitting back to look at a sale before it happens, and think to themselves "what effect will this have on our company?" and do the math associated with it. it's VERY simple marketing tactics. adn they failed epically. i recommend everyone complain to the better business bureau, or anyone that is able to force some repercussions on Zellers for this. it's completely dishonest for them to call it a typo. shame on you, zellers.

    Since Target is buying most of the stores, I dont think they care anymore. They do what they please

I'm sorry to everyone out there who has to deal with silly things like this. :-(

    I feel sorry for people like you, in all retail jobs, who have to look the customer in the eye and LIE because of idiots in management not following through or even worse not giving a crap.

    If it was only supposed to be offered online through FB on the 26th and 27th then it should have been removed on the 28th. This was not a mistake in wording or dates.

    There boxing day deals sucked so they thought they would offer this great coupon only to take it away. Not nice at all.

    Great job Zellers at driving customers away from your store. I see Walmart getting more business.

    Will Walmart accept this coupon?

    Well, I'm glad I read this before I wasted my time going there today....instead I'm using the time to contact a local TV station consumer advocate and write to Zellers.

    Wow it is amazing how fast Zellers went from AHH Im sorry there leaving now to Cant wait till Target gets here.

    Personally this coupon on regular priced items is still an amazing offer.

    What I think some of these companies need to start doing is hire a coupon expert as part of their marketing departments. I bet you the people working in marketing are some 200,000 dollar a year person who have never used a coupon in their life. With that said they have no idea how a coupon like this would spread like wild fire. Any top member on here would surely be able to tell head office this was probably not a good idea for the company financially. Im sure Zellers 3 days later realized we are losing alot of dinero here we better put this to an end atleast on sale items.
    This is truly a lose/lose for Zellers. Not only are they probably taking a loss on most items but now they even have the bad publicity and poor public sentiment to go along with it.

    I think we can now refer to this coupon as Zellers-Gate. or Cucumber-Gate

    I am disappointed! I was waiting until the 31st to use my coupon. I will probably still go in and look around to see what I can find. What bothers me is that they waited this long to make the "correction". Zellers should be honest with their customers about why they are changing the coupon. I really don't blame them though, clearly people are abusing it and that's a shame for those of us who haven't even had a chance to find a deal of our own!

    Zellers, I never liked you before, then I felt bad you were closing, and after my experience this morning with the coupon fiasco, well, you kind of deserve to close down. What a miserable morning I had. Not only could I not use my coupons (yes, I printed out 5, for my family of 6 people) but we lost an expensive pair of gloves and a hat in your store.

    Are Wii accessories considered electronics?
