Offer Subject to Change Without Notice

Updated on November 2, 2010

Offer Subject to Change Without Notice

Many online offers provide amazing saving opportunities. Ambitious vendors prime the pumps of consumerism  with free or nearly free products. "BOGO" appears to be the catch-phrase of modern marketing. "Buy One Get One" blares from web sites and marques across the Internet. Unfortunately, most of these offers include the caveat Offer Subject to Change Without Notice.

Certainly we cannot expect online marketers to eternally support their amazing offers. Supplies exhaust, economies change, and currencies inflate. Sooner or later a vendor must reconsider their hottest deals, therefore it's always in their best interest to warn potential customers by adding the boilerplate "Offer subject to change without notice" to their flashy deals.

Amish Pie Company

Amish Pies include only fresh and natural ingredients. Folks drive for miles through the rural countryside for Amish baked goods. The Amish Pie Company offers a free fry pie with the purchase of any full-sized pie. A fry pie is like a calzone for desert: fruit filling is sealed in a doughy crust and deep-fried, then glazed with sugar. Strawberry, cherry, country apple, and peach fillings can be ordered.

FTD Florists

No one actually knows what the "FTD" in "FTD Florists" actually stands for, but the online florist offers a string of amazing botanical offers and deals, many of which include the warning "Offer subject to change without notice." The company can't be faulted for hedging their bets and protecting their downside losses: flower arrangements require time and effort to produce. Agrarian vendors can only speed up the process within the limits of botanical science. Should demand surge due to a pop cultural event, any given special offer may need to be rescinded due to a lack of raw materials.

Carmichael Swim Team

Dog paddle over to Mark and Monica's Family Pizza for a special deal on Italian food. Calzones and pizza are on the menu. A calzone is similar to a fry pie entree.

Thanks to the Carmichael Swim Team, Mark and Monica offer a 20% discount on both dine-in and carry-out orders from their family restaurant. This offer is subject to change without notice, given that unexpected hordes of hungry swimmers and their families may descend on the cozy restaurant. Running out of dough would be a bad thing.

Tennessee Farm Bureau

Join the good folks at the Tennessee Farm Bureau for special savings on a surprisingly wide variety of products and services. Health services, financial advising, travel services, and farm equipment are all available at exclusive discounts. Farming in Tennessee will continue, but these special offers may not: keep an eye on the fine print. Of course, "Offer Subject to Change Without Notice." No financially responsible Tennessee business can afford an unexpected influx of Tennessee farmers wielding Tennessee Farm Bureau membership cards and demanding special pricing.

Conclusion

Shop 'til your mouse finger cramps up, but keep an eye out for offers that may expire. Be understanding of online vendors who provide discounts and coupons labeled with the escape clause "offer subject to change without notice." We all need to make a buck.

      I think that is a terrible way out of a discount offer to change without notice. I try to get verification before I buy into these offers although it is no guarantee. Thanks for the info.

      nicomp,

      The "offer expires without notice" can be solved by using your check card and then checking your bank account online and if the prices don't match just call your bank and dispute the charge!!!!!!!!!!!

      By the way FTD stands for Florist Telegraph Delivery.
