Guaranteed Lowest Price Scam

This ploy is used by many of the giant retailers who want you to think their price is the lowest. The gimmick is to say that if you can find the same carpet elsewhere at a lower price, “we’ll meet or beat that price by 5%”. Of course you can’t find the “SAME” carpet elsewhere because the giant retailer has it private labeled. Therefore, the only place you will find the same named carpet is at a branch or division of the same chain. Someday retailers are going to learn that consumers are not inane.
