On Friday, November 23, Black Friday is held at several stores nationwide. American traditions have set the stage for this, and many are looking forward to buying goods at greatly reduced prices. However, it is not a bargain.
The Consumer Inspector says that a product set to 40, 60 or 80% is not necessarily a transaction. The agency claims that merchandise can actually be cheaper than anywhere else and that consumers should check more places before shopping.
Elisabeth Lier Haugseth, director of consumer organizations, said in an article on the Web site that "price-sensitive consumers should take their products seriously when cooling off and trading on Black Friday."
– Misleading marketing is prohibited.
The director also warns merchants who promise "gold and green forests" on Black Friday.
"It is appropriate to remind merchants that misleading marketing is prohibited and that they must provide customers with accurate and clear information about price and price benefits," says Lier Haugseth.
In this article, Consumer Inspectorate mentions what customers should know. Marketing can claim that a customer must bargain price once, but it is not necessarily accurate.
Consumer Inspectorate does not stress you and checks your price history to see if the product is available.
They also say they should be skeptical about the promise to buy one hundred copies at a discounted price. Suddenly, if you have a customer number 101 in the box, you will feel like being deceived.
