Last week, Mr. Savvy and I went to Target to buy diapers. Here is a picture of the sales tag.
As Advertised! For One Penny Less Than The Regular Price!
You’ll notice they don’t claim the prices are reduced or that this is a sale. It’s just “as advertised.” They are hoping you will see it, assume it’s a good deal, and stock up on diapers.
All the diapers were “as advertised” like this. None of the diapers were actually reduced more than a penny off.
It’s a shame they are allowed to be so deliberately misleading. But it goes to show, you always have to read the fine print.
