Newegg and the Brother HL 5250DN

Times must be getting hard and the big guys are having to take drastic measures. Last week I wrote about Lowe's unknown price hike and this week there's Newegg's renege on an advertised price. My last email has all the details.

I understand fluctuations in prices but... It seems that posting that a "sale price" is good until a certain date and then not honoring that price up until that date is false advertising. And in a blogging world a bad business practice as well. Now I'll be sure NOT to get it at Newegg.

days ago this printer Brother HL-5250DN showed to be on sale at 169.99 until 7/11. When I checked back today it did not show the sale price. What happened?
