Stop supermarket special offer scams
Buy one get one free, 3 for 2, half price, family sized packs, 3 for £5, 3 for £10, thousands of prices reduced Philanthropy or cynical price manipulation?
Amazingly, there are no laws relating to this. Sure, there are guidelines, but these are easily manipulated.
Products advertised as half-price for a 2 week period; in the next 2 week period, the price is doubled - but you get one free! All a retailer has to do is double the price at 1 of thousands of stores for a while, then they can promote it as half-price nationwide. The so-called offer price is on offer for most of the year; it's actually the real price!
The bottom line is, the shopping public is systematically and cynically ripped off 24/7. Laws are needed, not wishy-washy guidelines
