A "Sale" is not always a Sale

October 5th, 2006 at 09:43 pm

Just because an item is "on sale" does not mean you should automatically buy it. In most cases, it is simply a lower price from it's original outrageously inflated retail price, which means it is now at "regular" price- not much of a deal, is it?

Another scheme by stores is to hang up signs that scream, "Up to 70% off!!!" but when you go inside, you find most things are only discounted a couple of bucks. If you search hard, you'll find that one damaged/irregular open-boxed item that is the sole 70% off item in the "sale." See, the stores weren't lying....but you still get tricked into shopping.

    I worked in a carpet store once. Everything that came in was marked up $2 a yard and then marked down$2 a yard, so it could have a sign that said, sale! It was Never on sale.
