Note to hosts:  please do not give one easy pay as the PRICE of an item.  A lot of hosts do this and it is tacky and confusing.  Please give the correct price!

Never heard them do that.  They say you can get it home for the price of the EZ pay.

I frequently hear them give a price of one easy payment and infer it's the total price.  I often wonder how many elderly, visually impaired people order thinking they're getting a bargain and never realize what has happened.

my guess is is that they are TOLD by their producers to say that. i dont think it is necessarily what the hosts say off the top of their heads. it has been going on for years now.

@Kachina624  are they still doing that? I haven´t watched in over fifteen years and always felt sorry for the elderly who thought that the Easy Pay was the full price. Didn´t know they were still doing that.

 

$20 will bring it home to you!!!!

I agree - :"get it home for $x.xx" is deceptive.  I've done a double-take more than once.

It is not only tacky and confusing, it is decitful and purposeful. They know what they are doing.  Agree 100%.

I've never heard them do that.  

 

The consumer also has an obligation to learn the full price they will pay.

Anyone that has issues not being able to know the full price of something when it is clearly shown on the screen has issues that won't be resolved by a host saying over and over what the full price is and would surely make the majority of those watching irritated by it!
