The appetizer...

Jordans rep:"Hey folks, I'm Jonathan! Do you need assistance with anything today?"

us:"Sure, we're here looking at the Power Play bundle you have advertised on tv. Do you mind showing us what you have available for options?"

Jordans rep:"Okay great! I'd be happy to show you what have we have here! Follow me."

us:"Okay."

So far, so good...for now.

We followed Johnathan to the show room exhibiting the "Power Play" setup. In case, you don't know exactly what that is, I will explain. The Power Play package comes with your choice of a sectional sofa or sofa and love seat, coffee table, two end tables, your choice of a Toshiba 55" 1080p or a Mitsubishi 73" DLP 1080p TV, and a wi-fi ready tablet for $1999. Great deal, right? Certainly sounds like one!

That is until we got into the specifics of things. (Oh dear, I hate fine print) As it turns out, Paul's TV, the supplier of all Televisions at Jordan's Furniture, is a completely separate entity. If you want this Power Play package and are not paying cash (Which most of us don't have the luxury of doing), you have to fill out Two separate credit applications.

This was annoying, but we decided to shrug it off for the time being, and take a look at our options! That was the next let down.

Selection!! Selection. Selection?

There is no question that Jordan's Furniture is a big place with lots of beautiful furniture. the thing that they leave out of their fancy commercials is that you will get to choose from a whopping 2 sofas for the Power Play package. My girlfriend and I kind of chuckled to each other when we saw that one of the sofas (beige microfiber) was seemingly identical to the one we have currently in our Living room. Leaving us with 50% less selection. In other words, 1 sofa. :)

I should let you know that you can "mix and match" and furniture you wish and still get the Power Play deal. the only problem is that the cheapest set of furniture in the mix and max bundle was $2400. You are qualified for the bundle so long as you spend over $2000 and there is a sofa and love seat in the bundle you buy.

The old "bait and switch"

Bait-and-switch

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia .

Bait-and-switch is a form of fraud, most commonly used in retail sales but also applicable to other contexts. First, customers are "baited" by advertising for a product or service at a low price; second, the customers discover that the advertised good is not available and are "switched" to a costlier product.

I should have known! It's a beige microfiber sofa in the ad damnit!

Thoughts on shopping at Jordan's Furniture

Have you been to a Jordan's Furniture Gallery Lately? What was your experience?

I'm noticing a trend with the beige microfiber

Look at that dog! S/He's cute  :)

All in all, it wasn't a terrible trip.

you have, however, been warned. If you expect to go into a Jordan's Furniture store and expect to walk out with a lavish sofa, love seat, tables and Monstrous television.....you will! You just won't likely get it for under $2400. If you are in fact, in the market for Microfiber, I can definitely recommend this Power Play. just remember that Paul's TV is in NO WAY affiliated with Jordan's furniture! You must fill out TWO credit applications if you want a TV AND Furniture.

Other than that, shop at your own risk as always. I hope this bit has helped you in better understanding how the Jordan's Power Play works. In reality, you'll probably ending up paying more for what you want.

Save yourself a lot of time. get approved BEFORE you make the trip to Jordan's Furniture.

Getting pre-approved for a Jordan's Furniture power card can save you a great deal of headache.An advantage of getting credit directly through Jordan's is the fact that you won't need to pay interest for up to 3 years. That will save you a lot of money as opposed to paying with a standard credit card. (Unless of course you pay it off at the end of the month)
