On one side of my brain – the sales person side – I think “clever, clever” but on the other side – my smart consumer side – I think, “this is so sneaky”.  Truth is that its fair play in the game of consumerism.  It’s not a new tactic.  It’s just a bigger playing field with fewer rules.

Anyways, here’s a few tips and tricks to avoid getting ripped off:
