How does that saying go “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is”
There are many times in life we come across things that just seem too good to be true. Recently I was looking to upgrade my phone, I have been with Bell for years so I thought let’s see what they can do. Well I could get an iPhone 8 with 3 gigs for $100/month. I went next door to Rogers and I could get an iPhone 10 with 5 gigs PLUS a free tablet with an unlimited line for the same price plus they would give me a corporate rate. Walked back to Bell to see what they would do. The employee told me “well I’d go with them, we can’t do anything like that. But what’s the catch, is the tablet really free?”
So after, 7+ years with Bell, I said “Bye-Bye” and I’m now with Rogers. I lucked out because it was a Black Friday deal, but Bell wasn’t doing anything to keep me as a customer.
So it ended well for me, but with so many ads popping up on our Facebook feeds, on Instagram it can be hard not to fall for some “great” deals. https://www.wish.com/ is notorious for having ads with amazing deals and what people receive is totally different. I’m not going to lie, I’ve had some laughs at other people’s misfortune.
My sister fell for a “great” deal. She ordered 4 bathing suits online, and they fit a child. I often tell her to review these websites before purchasing but apparently she needed to learn the hard way.
I do love to shop online, and so far I have been fortunate to have had great luck with items, usually because I stick to Amazon.
Have you fallen for a “great” deal? What was it?
