Well the host could have said look a SG tunic for under $45?  Would people think oh wow, it's really dollars less at only 38.98?

@sumtingwong We were probably typing at the exact same time.  Great minds think alike.

It is a sales tactic that used in all business not just QVC.  Houses go on sale for 474,999 because people think they are getting a bargain.  It has been studied in business and most people think that they are getting a bargain if the price is listed as 9.99 or 9.95 instead of 10 dollars.

What a silly phrase "shame on you"! There really isn't anything to be shamed for - QVC isn't being deceptive, and they're advertising the same way other retailers have done for years. I'm 73 and I think I've grown up with that type of advertising!

@Spookyoleme    She re is the shame.  QVC is it the only company who does this?

In my opinion the sad thing here is the OP's nickname.
