I walked into a local shop this past weekend that is similar to a high-end Potterybarn. I didn't need anything, but I was curious because a friend of mine told me this is the shop where I could find a $20,000 bathtub! Who needs a $20,000 bathtub!?!?! Anyways, that got my curiosity going, and so I ventured in.
This sign to the right is the first thing I see!! “BUY MORE, SAVE MORE!”
Now, what kind of sale is this? Isn't something on sale or not? Why do I have to buy more to save? Doesn't that defeat the purpose of saving to being with?
Then, only 10-20% off? This is the store where I can get a $20,000 bathtub, and yet the sale is only 10-20% off? I highly doubt this store is running thin margins.
In fact, there was a little side table marked for $250, which I could have sworn I saw the same one at a big box retailer for about $39.99! Maybe it's the “quality”.
If you are looking for a sale, don't buy more to save. Actually save money on what you need. These types of deals are just scams…
