50% off B-Wing - A success story

I spent the weekend in The Woodlands, TX and was thrilled to find a Lego Store in the mall there. Due to the exclusive figure and half-off on the B-Wing I had decided to get both the UCS X-Wing and B-Wing. However I didn't want to carry the boxes around the mall so I decided I would order them online. However, when I went to do so, the B-Wing was sold out online and there was no way to put one in my cart for a later ship date. I went back to the store and they were sold out too. I was crushed. I tried to call the shop at home number and they were closed too. So this morning I got back online and the price was back to $199. It was still sold out but you could pay for it and get a ship date of 20 May. So I called them with the intent of complaining about the fact that I couldn't put it in my bag yesterday, but I could today. They honored the $99 price so I got two of them. If you missed out on the 50% off yesterday, I would suggest calling them and asking for the $99 price.

    I really dislike an unlevel playing field. How exactly should people in a similar situation feel when they are unsuccessful in duplicating this "success" story? Hrmpfh.
