Having done like lots of people do at this time of year. Been shopping.
One of the tactics that electronic product companies are using to seemingly make us buy is this "Cash Back".
Now i don't know about you but personally if i walk into a store to buy a camera or a phone or similar item and it's £300 and then i'm told that if i buy that one i can redeem £50 from the manufacturer. It puts me off the whole thing and i walk away.
What is the point of me spending time filling out a form to reclaim cash that in my view i shouldn't be spending in the first place. Why don't they sell it for £250 and have done with it.
Can any blogger reading this, who has a financial bent please tell me where the logic is of this stupid (in my opinion) trend lies. I cannot understand where the benefits are to either party. I may be just thick but i won't buy a product that does this pitch and so we both lose out.
