I mean, its not wrong
I like seeing zeros tho, Id go for the $20
The real point is to make calcuation difficult. You add those on the 49's and 17's and such and befor eyou know it you spent ten to 100 extra dollars and wouldn't hav ebought some items.
Got a $5 coupon off for food order on grubhub for a $20 plus order. Got my roommate in on it and we decided on a pizza for $19.99. The coupon didn't work. We had to buy breadsticks too for another $5. Basically, the coupon was pointless.
Man if something even costs $17 I still round it up to $20
Is there actually a reason they do this?
@JiggleMyPuffs, yes, the picture is true
@JiggleMyPuffs, because you read 19 instead of 20. Your brain rules out the rest.
@JiggleMyPuffs, because decades of research shows that it works
@JiggleMyPuffs, its strange psychological economics like if you walk into a building with a specific shade of green on its walls (i think its literally called money green) it increases the odds of you making a purchase. I used the paint remodeling the interior of an Edwin Watts Golf Shop and its local warehouse (not a clue why it was used in the warehouse's call center but I guess it helps with making sales too)
@Ghoaxst, I thought it was to save us more tax.
@JiggleMyPuffs, Yes, it's called the odd number myth but its actually true. $20 or $19.99. Even though we look at the 19.99 and say 20, its more appealing to see the 19 than the 20.
@ericthegreat, a half comatosed monkey could figure out 19 is less than 20 tho
