Ever shopped online (or even in store) and find a really great deal but wonder if it’s actually a great deal? That happened to me this week. I was looking for new boots for my daughter and found out that Kmart had a buy 1 get 1 for $1 deal going on.
Sounds great, right?
Take this Piper Toddler Girl’s ankle boot for example.
On “sale” it is priced at $21.99. You get another one for $1 so it’s $22.99 for both or $11.50 each.
Here’s where they get you,
If you go into another item you can see “suggested items”. These items show the normal price. I chose to look at their rain boots for this example. As you can see, the same boot (2nd on the list) that is on “sale for $21.99 is normally priced at $10.00!
What does this mean?
That by doing their “deal”, you’ll actually pay almost $2.00 more!
Pretty sneaky Kmart!
Are you upset by this trick? I know I am!
Please share so other people do not fall for this.
