So I get this email from barneys announcing 75% off their sale section. I click the link, click on shoes, and all I see on the first page are Louboutins! :nuts:

So here I am faithfully opening up each page, selecting my size... and then a big red message comes up notifying me that they're sold out. Every single pair: sold out! I mean, honestly, why list them if they're sold out. :cursing:

Anyone with me here?

Barneys is notorious for this. I've developed very low expectations with them.

Even if you do place an order on a sale item, I think there's about a 50% chance they'll cancel your order (and not even tell you sometimes) but as JetSetGo says - guilt-free shopping!

OH, Barneys!!! You lured me into your site with your " Last Day Sale! 75% Off " promo and pictures of CL shoes!! Only to find there is NOTHING! You got me again, You tricky little devil!:devil:!

I hate that they leave sold out items on their website. It wastes so much time for all of us shoppers.

I WILL still try and order though. I've placed probably 10 orders and they've all cancelled except my City Girls. It's worth trying (and it is guilt free) if they follow through with one! I LOVE my City Girls!!!

^ That is so true! Usually there's at least something left - it's so annoying when EVERYTHING is out of stock! Take the pictures off the site, then!

I managed to score sale CLs only in the store and never on the website.
I can't even be bothered to click on the sale items. Always out of stock!!

I just got a pair of shoes in from Barneys today! ONE pair. Ask me how many I ordered.



Three.

That's a 33% success rate. Fantastic.

Yes, Barney's is notorious, and not in the good way. You can always try calling a store since they can sometimes locate the item for you.

Hah hah, yes! Honestly, I don't bother checking the website's sale pages anymore unless I'm really bored. I've placed four orders with them and they have all been cancelled. Oh well, I didn't need to spend the money anyways.

When I received this email I also checked out the site and almost everything was already sold. I could not help but think...... who collects a pay check to update this site???? Then tonight after reading this, I had to do a search and see if there might be a job listing. Well here is what I found.......maybe someone here will apply and keep us updated on some great sales.:yahoo: I know alot of us can post sales Very fast:yes:...that should count for something.

lol, it's not the designer, it's their lack of QA. Obviously they haven't tested the site thoroughly at all!
