Long ago I worked for a company that would sell you a 200 dollar accessory for 175, the best price on the web, but then they'd hit you with a 50 dollar "Shipping and handling"
It's a way to mark down the sticker price but still make a profit.. Actually, though I ojbect to this (I think they should tell you the "Out the driveway" price) in many states it's to your benefit.
I pay a "Tax" every year based on the value of my motor home (It is called a registration fee but the Federal government says that since it is based on the sticker price of the house it's a "Tax" and thus is treated like property tax on my 1040).
Well.... By charging all these excessive 'Fees" they cut down on the price, and thus on the tax.
Still.. I'm in favor of "Truth in selling" and in advertising as well. That is "out the driveway pricing".
Home is where I park it!
