What is the point of setting the price at £29.95 as opposed to simply charging thirty quid up front and be done with it?

Everyone knows that this is a psychological trick usually employed by predatory retailers trying to subconsciously hoodwink potential purchasers into thinking that they are getting something at a significantly cheaper price than is really the case.

I certainly don’t think it’s a good basis upon which to sell things like theatre tickets. It would definitely put me in the wrong frame of mind to begin with knowing that I was being looked upon as a ‘soft touch idiot’ to be targeted with a view to being coerced into parting with as much cash as possible.

Not for me I’m afraid - it somehow creates the wrong atmosphere to begin with.

A bit of a strange paradox here as I’d be quite happy to pay a straight £30.00 (if I thought it was likely to be worth it) but being subjected to obtuse ‘jiggery-pokery’ over the odd 5p leaves me quite cold for some reason.
