I saw so many offerts to supermarkets, they promise all is nice, cheap, fresh and only there you can fint this big offert. Do you trust in this kind of offerts? Buy 3 with one is a gift....or buy 10 and 2 are for free.... In my opinion all are lies, big lies, they never lose money, never. Do you think that they think that all we are stupid or what? Nothing is for free, maybe we pay a lot or more for this kind of offerts. What do you think? You buy things for "free" as they say? or avoid this offerts?

I agree with you too. I don't think anything comes for free. These are just marketing tactics to get more customers to buy their product. Why would anyone want to do business at a loss? If they are really giving out something for free, there are serious issues with the quality, per me. Most of the times people would go buy these things coz so much stuff is "free", even if they don't need those products in reality. Just a way to get more buyers interested.

I will normally shop accordingly.. one thing good about me, is I can remember pricing very well.. if the say 3 for 2, I make sure the calculation is correct, if it's buy 1 get 1 free, I will also check the pricing.. especially for those necessities, I will always jolt down the price, so I know where can I get cheaper stuff.. We have a few big huge hypermarkets here, and all in price war, but nevertheless, there are some item that are more expensive.. sometimes when it sales, it is to attract people more to buy those "un-sale' stuff that those on sale.. and some of those are near to expire too!

My girlfriend used to work in a department store and in a convenient store..and I ask her before about the mentioned matter..and I was shocked when I heard what she said..according to her,don't trust everything that's on sale because most of these products are those ones with low quality,almost expired products and sometimes expired products..she explained to me how is this so..and she said that the management couldn't take the risk of losing the money they've invested so better sell it,for them it doesn't if the product is expired or almost expired or has a low quality,for them what matters is the money.. Eversince I stopped buying items that are on sale,I guess I'm too scared to buy things that can endanger my health...

hi i think these are all business tricks to attract customers. they add up the cost of the free thing in the paid things only ..nothing is without cost..customer has to pay for every thing .its only the label that is free.i agree wid you.
