Mike Barnicle made an excellent analogy today on Morning Joe - he noted that when sneakers that normally sell for $29 go on sale for $19, no one calls it a price hike when the sale ends and the price goes back to $29.

They run true to form with the most recent post: "There should never have been a sale in the first place." :rolleyes:

For that bit of inanity to be correct, there would have to be an established tax rate from which all other tax rates are a deviation. That doesn't exist. Tax rates have continuously changed.

it seems to me that people here are missing a basic point.

anytime you raise your price from 20 to 29 that is a price increase.

it does not matter if you are coming off a sale or what.

You have raised the price
