    i think in 2017 even the biggest morons see past 1p being a deal or no deal. its 1980’s marketing that everyone sees through now.

    Fair point, but can’t see how it’s @becs being condescending though

    Apart from the marketing side of things - I thought it was a mechanism to prevent pilfering - by charging irregular amounts, staff would have to open tills to give out change, rather than just pocketing the notes.

    It begs the question then why do all incredibly successful companies still do it? Maybe you should apply as Marketing Director to tell then where they are all going wrong as the millions pour in.

    they dont

    are you admitting that it sucks you in?

    Actually fecking fair play to you. Apologies. I took the trouble to check: choosing Apple, Sainsbury's and Tesco for starters. You are completely correct and there is no sign of x.99 and x.49 deals. In fact all the Apple products are round numbers.

    Consider a pint bought if I ever bump into you.

    HANDSOME_DAN Central Defender
