    If I had a dollar every time someone posts this same exact thing/complaint...

    If you are ordering, you have to call and request the discount (for any/all of those brands) - you will usually get it. If you are at a store, you ask for it, the clerk calls a special number they have and gets the code to add to the order. The manufacturers don't allow the stores to advertise a lower price (that includes discounts), hence this usual verbiage.

    I get a kick out of the 'Huge extra discount % sales' which mean of course '% off retail, which is a number they never charge in the first place.
