By now, you’ve probably heard of the recent controversy over bedding brands like Kmart and Amazon, and the fact that they don’t sell for a fair price.
And there’s nothing inherently wrong with that.
However, there are two problems with that situation.
The first is that the companies that make these bedding products don’t have to sell for an affordable price to their customers.
In fact, most of them don’t even have to.
The second is that there’s a problem in the Bed Bath & Beyond brand, and it’s something that the company itself needs to fix.
What exactly is the problem?
Well, Bed Bath and Beyond has been accused of using a deceptive pricing scheme to sell their bedding at a higher price than it really is.
They were accused of “tipping” consumers to buy the product they actually advertised for instead of the product advertised for.
And, of course, they were accused of doing so to try and cover up the fact they are actually using a predatory pricing scheme.
I’m going to explain what’s going on here, so you can make your own informed decisions.
If you’re like me, you probably already know that Kmart and Walmart have a massive problem with deceptive pricing.
And I know what you’re thinking: KMart and Walmart, I’m sure, have better brands.
But that’s not true.
You see, Bed B& Be and Beyond have been accused by several consumer groups of using a predatory pricing scam to gouge their customers, and to avoid paying for their products at a fair cost.
Here’s how it goes: 1.
Bed Bath and Beyond uses a “tipped” system to sell the product that it actually sells for, while other brands do not.
The product is advertised as “sold exclusively by Bed Bath” and is sold in a store.
The “sold by Bed B &!
Be” sign is used to advertise the product.
When a consumer clicks on that “sold for” link, they are redirected to an ad on another website that shows the product at a lower price.
The ads then link back to the actual product at the original price, with a different “sold at” image that shows that it’s still listed as “Sold exclusively by Kmart.”
The consumer clicks through to the retailer where they bought the product, only to find out they are no longer able to purchase it because of this “ticked” pricing scheme and are instead charged for a different product.
