    Advertisers soliciting offline contact
    I'm so fed up with advertisers that use price or other issues to prompt consumers to contact them for the low low price. What are we supposed to think about this stuff.

    I just spent an hour pulling product info for products i wanted to feature only to find that one of them led to this "We cannot publish our current price for this item because it's lower than the official "advertised price." But we will gladly provide a quote for you. Enter your email address:"

    Now why the hell would i send traffic to this. I need to go back and find out how many of these i need to remove from my plans...It would have been cheaper to just send this advertiser a few $ and not done anything.

    I wonder if you ask for the email, then they send out the price with a link, if it will overwrite your cookie.

    Do you need to ask.

    I can think of no other reason a merchant would do that. Can you?

    I think most of those offers that I've seen ask you to call rather than email, and you know they'll try to close the deal on the phone.
