If a premier tile is at $3 and then the "Sale" event is drawn, what happens? Does the tile stay available at $3, or is it discarded from play?

Thanks.

It is discarded from play, and another card/tile is drawn to replace it.

We had this happen yesterday, so I came here to ask.

The situation occurred when the price of a Fancy Lounge dropped to $7, but a Lounge Strike kept anyone from buying it. The next turn the price dropped to $3, then the Sale card came out.

I looked at the rule, but it's unclear. It says when the price drops from $3 the room is discarded, but it says that under the "Drop Prices" phase, and this was a Sale card. We decided to leave the room in play, but I could have gone either way. Is there an official ruling that the room is discarded?

I don't even see the need for the rule saying the room is discarded when it drops from $3. I think it should just stay at $3. When I first read the rules I thought it was to clear out a tile that no one wanted, but now that I've played, I just don't see it. For $3, someone will want it. It's rare that a tile doesn't go for $7.

I would think it's a mechanism to force you to act now or lose the deal when it hits the bottom. In addition, it ensures you are cycling through the tiles and progressing towards the end game. One last note, the rule might have been listed under the "drop prices" phase but it seems that is exactly what the card is saying "drop price" so it seems logical to apply it.
