I went to my local store today to put my name on the wait list for the Tivoli GM. The SA (who was a little snotty and unfriendly) told me that I would have to give them my credit card number to reserve the bag and that once it came in, it would automatically be charged and then I could pick it up. I guess this is their policy, but I find it strange as I definitely don't want to pay for a bag site unseen without examining it(and if their wait list is as long as they say it is, they definitely shouldn't have a problem finding another eager buyer even if I don't purchase it). I also told that SA that I would prefer to pay cash when the bag comes in. She looked at me like I was crazy and told me that it probably wouldn't be possible or that they would have to do a charge refund first and that it got messy doing it this way. Just out of curiosity, I called the 866 number at LV and the woman who answered the phone didn't seem to really know about paying cash and told me that it probably was not possible to do so on a wait-list item. Again, I find this bizarre as I would think that stores would prefer cash (and don't they get charged a small fee for charged items?). Maybe it's just me but I didn't really appreciate being told how I could pay for an item (and I definitely didn't want the above SA to get any commission from me).
