so called bargains.

What annoys me ?... :thinking:

Those bloody adds on TV that promise,... "buy one and get one free !" :flaming_mad

well bugger me !... if the bastards can give you one for "free", why don't they just halve the price of one of them ?
:character-oldtimer:

..... and it doesn't end there,
Coles, Woolies and IGA constantly have "half-price" items on sale.
If they can sell it for half price and make a profit,, then doesn't it make sense that their profit margin is way too high ?

But Terra, people are like sheep they believe anything whereby
we use our scons, the older i get the cheekier i get, i tell them
if you can reduce the price by %50 then you are ripping people off
by that amount, strange they don't like that. :character-oldtimer:

I find those "buy one - get one free" sales to be offensive. I live alone and often just dont want two of any particular item. You need to freeze the second and that is not always palatable (crumpets for example). They should just have to sell each item for half price when on special. :character-oldtimer:

.... and when I need to buy ONE carton of beer, at a special price.... when they advertise TWO cartons at, say, $80,
they won't let me buy just ONE carton for $40..... I have to pay the regular price of $45.

Buying TWO cartons is all very well if money isn't a problem but if you are on the poverty pack income, finding the eighty bucks can be be a problem.

If it's 'buy one and get one free', take a single item to the checkout and tell them you didn't need the first item, so you'll make do with just the free one.
