41 Everyday Scams That Are Tough To Avoid
Paying full price (ever)
Between coupons, markdowns, clearance, and the quote-unquote holiday sales that stores seem to run every other day (Arbor Day Sale – 20% Off!), why is anyone paying full price?! It sounds like even more of a scam when you start to research how much things actually cost. Not their retail cost, but their wholesale cost. If you’ve ever wondered how stores can mark stuff down so much, think about what their cost for the item must be in the first place. We’re talking a few bucks here, and then they turn around and sell it for $60, mark it down to $30, and somehow we’re convinced that we’re getting the deal of the year. Never pay full price, full stop.
