    Angry MSQ Sale Prices

    Will someone pleeeease explain to me why the sale prices are so misleading.
    I don't care what the MSRP is, I want to know what MSQ normally sells it for, that should be the
    price they list. That way I know exactly how much the actual saving is. The way they list it, it looks
    as if your saving more money than you are. One example was it look like you saved $10.00, when
    you look closely the MSQ normal price was $15.00 your not saving $10.00 you save $5.00

    I won't say the lied, but they do mislead their customers.

    Its the way of the world. When you go into a dept store and the ticket says you saved $200 it is from the MSRP.

    It's still a larger savings than what I'd pay here at a LQS where they charge MSRP.

    It bothers me a little, too, when I see something like "up to 30% off select fat quarter bundles." You know it's not going to be anything too exciting when you see phrasing like "up to" and "select."

    With quilt-shop quality fabrics, I don't expect to find significant discounts unless the item is old inventory the seller is trying to move out. By that time, many parts of the discounted fabric line are already sold out. If I don't want to miss out on a line that really catches my eye, I'm prepared to pay the going price.

    MSQC is fairly competitive on prices. I notice yardage has gone up to match FQS prices (or even exceed them, in the case of some Tula Pink prints), but it is what it is if you want the latest and greatest.

    I don’t like that practice either. I understand why they do it though

    Sure glad the "latest and greatest" seldom interest me

    Businesses typically discount off that price and not a discounted price. Do you like the sale price/fabric? Then buy it. Win-Win for all. If you don't like the sale price then it's easy to pass it by. I don't get caught up the original prices as they usually are not relevant.

    I hear you and I even agree with you. But... all businesses do this, not just M*. It's just something we have to accept as the way businesses do business.

    Sorta like marking things up to mark them down and call it a sale.

    I wish sometimes that this practice wasn't so common. I really miss the old days when you went to the store to get what you want/need, and the posted price was the price. No "SALE" signs, and no confusion. You either bought it, or you figured out maybe you didn't need it that bad. Things just ain't so simple anymore.
