Sales in the USA
During the sale (Sale) prices for goods are reduced by 20-60%. Held at the end of the season and for various holidays and are very popular among Americans. A very good time for shopping in America.
If, by the arrival of any buyer, the item that was on sale has already ended (sold out), he can ask for a ticket (raincheck) that guarantees the purchase of this item at the sale price when it is received for a regular sale. You should not assume that you will buy a thing on a sale is much cheaper than it is “necessary” for this money. The fact is that in some stores “on the sale” more than half of the goods. If it was a real sale of 50% – the store would go broke very quickly. But this is to some extent a game in which the client is involved, like prices like $ 9.99 cents. Everyone understands everything, but … acts de.
In addition, the sale is partly beneficial also in that it is possible to hold a thing more expensive for some time – the one who has no time will buy it – and then put it on the sale. It is convenient to buy things on the sale that are not needed now, immediately. Because, if you need to now and you are going to look, the thing you need may not be on the tail. In addition, the best things for a given system of stores do not even fall on a tail and less often things that are relatively few in the store — for example, rare sizes.
With the size in America, the same problem as in Ukraine, and actually it leads to the fact that you have to buy small shoes in an expensive store and pay more for them. Many expensive shops consider it wrong to occupy a sales area with things that are not in stock. Therefore, when one thing remains in such a store, they transfer it to a special store, where they are sold with a large markdown. But there these things lie in place, you have to rummage a lot like in a secondhand. This case is an amateur.
As for discounts, there are other games of this type. For example, a couple of months before Thanksgiving, many large supermarkets are campaigning free turkey. When you buy for every 10 dollars you get a coupon, and when they accumulate a certain amount, for the holiday you get a free turkey. In grocery stores there are discounts if you buy several homogeneous items, or if the goods expire. Sometimes when buying some products, the company returns part of the money, for example, after six months. There are also stores (cash and carry), where goods are sold at low prices, if they are taken in large quantities, paid in cash and immediately taken away. Many shops print in newspapers, on packages of purchased goods, send coupons to buy goods at a discount (coupon) by mail. When buying a product, the coupon is delivered to the cashier.
