BOGO Sales that aren't.

November 9th, 2006 at 07:13 pm

I hate when they call them BOGO (buy one get one) sales when they aren't.

I got this online ad in my email box.

Text is http://www.sportmart.ca/store/mailers/bogo6/mailer.htm and Link is

I got all excited thinking .. Great 50% off. Nope its 25% off. Not a bad sale but nothing to write home about either.

Interesting articles how BOGO sales are less beneficial to customer than regular sales.

    when it comes to the grocery stores around here, most of 'em will simply ring each item up as half off, so you get the deal even when you buy 1!!! woohoo!!

    Maybe it should be called BOGOHO...ha ha!
    Another blatant BOGO abuser = Payless Shoes and their recent promotion. People see the BOGO but don't realize they're still paying for two pairs of shoes, no matter the discount.
