Bluefly "retail" prices

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Check this out: Grossly overpriced Miu Miu jacket I think that I saw this Barneys for about $400 less, retail, last season.  I've seen this jean jacket: Grossly overpriced Miu Miu jacket a few seasons ago retailing around $300, at the Miu Miu boutique on Melrose.   WTF.  When did discount come to mean 100%+ markup?

People are going to be gullible no matter what, and people are going to take advantage of them as long as they are. Just be happy you know what you are purchasing, or not purchasing as the case may be. Jon.

I've noticed wrong "original" retails at bluefly several times. I shop a lot and know the prices. I sent the chairman an email about some of the items, but they still claimed their prices quoted as original were correct. however, i have purchased some items from bluefly that were real bargains.

Yeah, that's really the trick. You need to know your products and their retail cost, that way you can make sure that you are indeed getting the best deal possible...and are not being taken for a ride. And probably, in some small measure, when they overcharge for some items and some one buys them, they can offset the good deals you are receiving for other products. Jon.

What is the point, anyone who cares would know the MSRP anyway

Not true, there are plenty of people who do not have the benefit of having a Barneys/Selfridges/Lane Bryant near them and who nevertheless want the styles/brands found there. They don't necessarily know the MSRPs. Moreover, the point is that the practice is deceptive, if not downright dishonest.
