Clearance Prices Going UP Instead of DOWN!
What in the world is up with the clearance prices going up?…shouldn’t they go down?….I’ve been stalking Giuliana’s page for two weeks and have purchased a few things…my next order is on its way and three of the jackets I bought have gone up at least $20…guess I should just be glad I got them when I did….but what is up with that?
I think that the channels know that no one would pay the ‘regular’ price for the items. – I guess a few do though.
I think the ‘regular’ price is there for comparison and as a seller’s ploy. When the item is presented they can show you what a Deal you are getting. Just like that dreadful ‘Retail Value’. The ‘Retail Value’ price has no relationship to reality. It is there as a ploy to make you think it is a great deal. – Mind Manipulation.
Sometimes it is a deal but often, it is not. I totally ignore Retail Value, Regular Price and If You Were To Purchase it Separately. … None of those terms have any meaning. I consider local, catalog and other electronic sources. Of course the gratification of impulse buying from TV and the convenience of easy purchasing by phone and computer means a lot.
On Monday a ring by Bali by design was on sale for 59 dollars. Today it’s back to the regular price of $159.00. What gos up must come down, not necessary will it stay down.
With many retailers/channels, ‘Sale‘ means that they raise the price.
I noticed that quite a lot on so many different items….joy’s pocket organizers and her other stuff and on a lot of jewelry. I even posted about it too.
HSN is not the only retailer that does this.
Have you ever seen numerous stickers on tags at stores? If you ever peel some of these stickers back, you will see price fluctuations.
I am a little bit Nancy Drew and a little bit Perry Mason. I peel back the stickers on retail tags. :womanlol:
If it is to my liking, I will buy the product. If not, I will place the stickers back as they were before I looked. :womanlol:
I noticed that too with some clearance jewelry I bought during their Jewelry Event. Now, the price is higher and still on Clearance. I don’t get it, but glad we got the lower prices!
