Careful of some (I said some) retailers offering skincare and beauty products. Some are extremely pushy. An example of what they might do: give you free samples, then take you by the hand and into their store and sit you down in a chair and try skincare products on you. Then they will tell you that you should buy these products now and you will get extra free items and discounts and that if you don’t buy them now you won’t get this ‘very special’ offer. They will make you feel bad if you decline to buy the items and act all sad and continue to tell you how much of a great offer this is and stuff like that.
Only 2 things you can do really… stay the heck away from such stores or decline to buy products and/or services if you are already dealing with them.
That said, if you actually like these products… I would actually suggest you do your OWN research on the brand and products first before buying them. Generally, yes, these products have actually been discounted but please go and find out the real price of these items first. Because sometimes they just say that when they haven’t been discounted. You may also be better off buying the products somewhere else because once you’ve bought products they will most likely introduce more and more products and will feel pressured to buy more.
You can tell them that you can’t afford any more and they will probably even discount said items even more, if this doesn’t work, they might ask you to use your credit card/increase the limit (disgusting to ask this), I’m sure they might also ask people to borrow money from others…
They might change their wording to ‘exclusive’ offer… No. These offers are not exclusive. They do this to many customers. Remember they are just there to sell things. They don’t care about you even if it seems that they are friendly and happy… that will soon stop if you don’t buy anything or stop buying more.
These people have extracted probably hundreds out of unsuspecting customers… if they can get away with it, it can go into the thousands. Yeah, so I guess that’s why I’m writing this 😛
