Don’t get excited about the above sales as we get initially. On scrutinizing these offers we dig up that only one or two items are on best offers and all the rest items are averagely priced. Some stores raise their original prices and then marked it on sale and some are offering low quality products. Only a little were found to be authentic with these discounts, so be very careful while choosing one!
For example Nokia 6 (a Smartphone) has a market value of Rs 27,900 but homeshopping.pk has originally priced it as 40,000 and then offered a 26% off which discounts it at Rs 29,499 which is still above the market price.
Second example is of Mitsubishi 2 ton convertor. Its market price is Rs 141000 but Shophive.com has originally priced it at Rs,148,999 and then offering a discount after which it comes at 40,999. There are numerous examples like these where these stores are fooling the general customers.
