    Amazon bait and switch

    My Facebook feed this morning had an Amazon ad advertising 50% off core training products with an image of an airex pad

    When I clicked on the ad the advertised product was a Slendertone belt

    wtf?!

    They actually have more products available if you click the button in the slendertone pic but talk about market-message mismatch

    That is typical Amazon. I tried to buy an SI compression belt from them got a similar brand bait and switch.

    You should report it. Amazon gets upset at the vendors when they sell like that. It's not likely to be Amazon that's playing around, but the next vendor/supplier in line.
