Have you seen a store obviously inflate a price before a sale?
We are buying our daughter a Barbie townhouse this year. A couple of months ago it was $159. Two weeks ago it was $139. Today it is $179.
I can’t help but think they jacked the price up to make $159 suddenly look like a nice discount in a couple of days. Anyone who hasn’t been watching the price at the same store over a period of time would never know differently.
Have you seen examples? Does it make you angry or do you think it is just part of doing business?
