Here is a situation which I would like your opinion on.
You are at a department store going through a stack of specials on cosmetics and skincare.
One stand in particular has a sign on the top:
"50% off, prices as marked"
You pick up a body lotion, original price $20.
It is marked at $14.
It scans at the register for $14.
There are many of the same body lotions on the same stand, so the line item has been placed there deliberately by the store staff & not accidentally moved around by customers.
FYI: Legally, you are entitled to have that item at $10 because the "50% off" overrides the "prices as marked".
Knowing this, I'd like to know what you would do.
1. Would you ask the sales assistant (SA) for the price to be reduced to $10?
2. If the SA says "it was a mistake" or tries to fob you off, would you insist on the $10? Maybe even ask for a supervisor?
3. Would you leave it & walk away on principle?
4. Would you buy it anyway at $14.
