How Stupid Do They Think You Are

Just how stupid does Joseph A. Banks think you are? Or better yet, how stupid are you? Every week they have a different "sale" on, telling you that you are saving so much money. What they really should say is, "Guess how close you're getting to paying a fair price this week?" Their latest takes the cake.
They're advertising, you can save $1200 on 3 suits. The "sale" is on there suits starting at $550. The first is $250, the second is $150, the third is $50. Do the math! That's 3 suits for $150 each. Let's not forget, a month ago they had a sale, buy 1 get 2 free. THIS IS BETTER THAN THAT!!!! That sale was for suits priced $550 and above as well. But as buy 1 get 2 free, the suits cost $183.30 each. Now they are $150. Either way, they are making a profit
Why in God's green Earth are they pricing suits at $550, or $183 for that matter, if they can make money selling them at $150? I'll tell you why.
They think you are so stupid. They know you wouldn't buy a suit priced at $185, so they raise the price then give you a phony sale. I sell the same quality suits for $125-$150 everyday of the week, and I don't even have sales! Wake up people and smell the coffee. Start doing the math and find out where the real money is saved. With the economy being the way it is, it's more important than ever that we spend our money wisely.
