Camping World propane ripoff

Beware.... Camping World advertises $1.99 a gallon for propane on Tues +Wed with a Sam's Club card. I just got propane there today and they said sorry it's $3.30 a gal with the Sam's card.
Regular price $4.09 a gallon!

It's more evidence of their business practices than pricing. I tried to buy my new MH from them because they advertise to match or beat any advertise price. (They wanted $7K more for the exact same unit than another Camping World) so I walked and bought from another dealer)

Apparently their pricing has changed. The PFJ RV card now advertises a discount instead of that set price.

FWIW- propane today was $3.99 a gallon in Pensacola. ...But: darn good thing they don't run on coal....

That was at RV dealer here, Not CW.

And I was griping about having to pay $3.20/gal today, since the $2.99/gal place was closed due to a backhoe ripping the power conduit out....

Are we talking a Sam's club card,a Good Sam member card or a PFJ discount card? I have never seen Camping world advertise a particular price,only a member discount. Sam's club is Wal-mart and the Pilot/flying J card is a fuel buying card with an automatic discount. I used my PFJ card for the first time the other day and they included the discount right at the pump. Nice.
I would suggest that you slide over to RV.net and go straight to the CEO of Camping World with your complaint.

Propane here is still at $3.50/gal. I guess that is not too bad.

The latest "Good Sams" circular, page 23, shows that club members save 25% on LP gas every Tuesday and Wednesday. Limit 40 gallons.

So now I'm left wondering . . . was it false advertising or a misunderstanding of what was advertised? Big difference.

Here's a link to the Camping World add for propane @ $1.99 per gallon. Unfortunately it's dated June 25th 2013. Notice the word SELECT is underlined, meaning not all Camping World locations participate

Half off LP propane for Good Sam Club members every Tuesday and Wednesday -

The 2014 promotion is 25% off on Tuesdays and Wednesdays

Costco sells propane with no limit and the price in Phoenix is $2.39.

Here is the rv.net thread explaining the propane sale and it ending to begin the $39 installation promotion. I was in a position to fill up once at the $1.99 price.
