As I understand the salesman would have let you be stuck with a $68 item and expect you to buy another item for $120 ?
If you had agreed, by reducing the dearer item by what you have already spent he would only have lost the cost price of the lesser item which could be considerably less than the sales price.
You are very nice, after such a lame offer to still point out to check his web site. In this case I wouldn't have done that, the next customer who gets fooled might not take it so kindly ;o)
