Lowes website

Lowe’s seems to be putting the hammer down on the folks that used the pricing error script.

What the F?!

The points that got my attention were

1 They found a glitch to have items delivered WITHOUT PAYING for them

2 The police recovered enough to fill a trailer.

3 They had a Facebook store selling the items.

While “we” may scan the stores for irregular pricing & buying the items up in bulk. I don’t think anybody is buying by the trailer load for resale. On the surface with the facts and allegations in evidence, this looks like a gift card Or store credit scam or something like that.

Yeah I think my heart skipped a beat but after reading it does seem like they were really stretching what was acceptable, that being said, no doubt that they are going to have been a large part of what has caused them to clamp down on all of us.

Probably true, but worth mentioning that prosecutors overreach and media outlets get their facts wrong all the time.

Romela Velazquez a 24YO stay at home mom was just arrested in NJ for Loews online coupon fraud, not much detail in the story.

They employed a online scheme known as “glitching” – exploiting a weakness in online retail websites by logging in coupon codes that wrongly bring goods at dramatic discount or for free, store investigators said.

Couple days late, scroll up lol

I’ve done quite a bit of reading on it but it’s the first time I saw this about “coupon codes”

Therein lies the difference between us and them. We exploit sales and price differences for personal use. They used it as a business model.

And hire them ( or new ones) back in the spring. It’s the nature of the construction industry. More cost effective to use contract drivers especially during the off season.

So what exactly do it these people do? From what I understand there wasn’t any coupons to get free stuff.

Essentially, coupon fraud.

This article is a good explanation of it: http://www.orlandosentinel.com/brandpublishing/go-shopping/os-all-that-glitters-isn-t-good-20160708-story.html (and http://jillcataldo.com/coupon_glitches_fraud/ is an older, but still a good read).

All Keen Home vents are on sale for $54.99 until Christmas Eve. So lowes was offering free parcel shipping on the 4x10 for a couple of days but that seems to have run out, luckily I already snagged some. Local store pickup is still available in many locations for all sizes. You can always use your favorite coupon generator and get an extra $10 off that price too.
Good luck, happy hunting!!
