Can clearance prices keep rising on items?
I missed getting Joy’s 28 pocket organizer on clearance when it was $5.00 and purchased it last week for $7.00 on clearance. It just arrived. I just went in to do a review and now see the clearance price is now $12.95. I am so surprised that the clearance price has risen again. I thought clearance prices go down and not up. Does this seem right? It’s the exact same item.
I ordered Joy’s tote for $29.95 and I noticed the other day it’s now priced at $59.95 with more choice of colors. It wasn’t on clearance just a markdown. Looks like it was restocked and price was marked up because of it. I wouldn’t have paid the higher price.
GSZ55, I have noticed the Clearance prices go down and go back up, too. No idea why, but that’s how they roll. However, there are 2 Joy pocket organizers. There is a 30-pocket for $12.95 and a 28-pocket for $7.00.
Clearance means just that they are clearing it out, not that the price will be lower next week or next month. If you take a chance waiting for the price to come down you might get lucky and get it lower but as you’ve seen it might go up. As for your question does this seem right? Think about it your talking about sales/marketing, since when has it ever been right/fair. As I always tell my kids and grandkids when they complain about something not being right or fair, whoever told you that life is right/fair is lying. My best advice is trust in yourself if it seems to be a good deal go for it if you wait for it to get better understand it might not its your decision you have to live with the consequences of your actions. You make the decision of what is right or fair for you. Take the power away and bring it to yourself then you make it right or fair.
