Boo on Dominos

UPDATE: I called the Dominos store in question and did a price inquiry. I was told the correct price for the pizza. Yay. Good to know that they did actually change what they were doing. I was taping the conversation at the time...just in case.
I still have not heard from anyone at the local chain or on the corporate level about the fact that I was overcharged $7 and my son was overcharged $7. I am sending the corporate person I talked to a link to this blog. We''l see what happens from there. At least they had some corporate responsibility.

Waiting for a reply from:
Dear Sirs and Madames,
One of your stores lies on the phone about the price of a large pizza with three toppings. They have over charged my in the past and I thought it was a clerical error. Recently they charged my son almost double the sale price. As I drove by the store today I called to check on the price and they lied about the price to me. I was sitting in my vehicle in front of the banner ad that listed a large 3 topping carry out for $8.99 the employee stated it would be $15.99. This is against federal bait and switch laws. This was not an employee error. This was the third time in a row it has happened. This time the employee tried to "upsale" me to a five topping pizza. This directive must have come from management. I am contacting the local district attorney to see what step my local government should take against the Dominos corporation if this is not remedied immediately.
Maybe I should contact Don Dare and his amazing stare.
EDIT: I did get a response from Dominos.

  1. At the very least the should send you some coupons.
    Also, if they don't respond satisfactorily, you ought to post on all the review sites about this one, i know a lot of people will use google to find phone numbers of businesses and such and if right underneath their search result is a big one-star review and comment about how this domino's is a rip off, that might lose them some business.

  2. I think so. Hopefully Digg, Fark or Reddit might pick up.
