Price Anchoring, the iPad, and why we’re all fools

leave a comment » has an interesting article on price anchoring and how it applies to the iPad. In short, price anchoring is showing an inflated price and then announcing a lower price. In the iPad’s instance, Steve Jobs stated that the iPad was rumored to be $1000, but when he announces the price of $499, you think you’re getting a deal.

Apparently, we’re all susceptible to it and the smarter you are about pricing, the easier you fall prey to it.
