questionsis there such a thing as an anti-deal? oh yes…


Anti-deal: Raise the price and cheapen the shirt!


My grandfather ran a general store back in the '50s, and my dad told me that when there was something that wasn't selling, he'd raise the price and put an "on sale" sign on it. The crazy thing is that it worked. People see a sale sign, and logic goes out the window. HP seems to have missed one key element to this strategy: Removing all reference to the original price. I guess it was easier to fool people back then.


I think Corona did the raise the price thing to make people think it is better than it really is trick.


You always have to keep in mind the old "Oranges: 33¢ each or 3/$1.00" trap.
