i subscribe to a few of the "below retail" websites like fab and coupaw but i am thinking of unsubscribing because i am getting so tired of them claiming to offer deals and discounts. here is a prime example:
fab.com offers this love thy beast leather pouch, to carry poopie bags, for $70.00. the little red sale tag next to the price implies it's a sale but to me, this price seemed awfully high so i did a little detective work.
i went directly to the love thy beast website and found it listed for $44.00. ok fab.com, who are you trying to fool? are they intentionally trying to fool the public? people follow these websites looking to save a few dollars. i don't know if people actually go and compare prices, like i do, or if they just believe what they are being offered a deal.
this isn't the only time i've seen this but it is the worst i've come across. fab does offer some deals now and then and i have purchased from them in the past but this listing really got my goat (so to speak).
also beware of their "suggested retail price." it's usually inflated just to make their "deal" seem like more of a bargain. i've even seen amazon pad their "list price" so just use caution and do your research before you click "add to cart".
