Please only post the current list price, not the list price that came out when the product was a new thing.
If it is old and outdated it doesn't list so high.....
stop listing wrong info just to get attention towards your deal post...
it would be better the have the list price blank, than have a fake price.

This is suppose to be a social site, not screw over the people site.

thanks

a $1.50 a battery, when they sell for 10 cents each at a store.
or a cell phone charger for a iPhone 3, that sells for $5 is listed at $69 here....it is endless, people need to list the going selling price, not this fake exaggerated list prices.

I always get a chuckle out of a 64GB thumb drive with a list price of $995.

Oh, I get it. Well if I ever do it inadvertently please let me know! Once I posted a deal on a bracelet that was $17? something like that and thankfully it was pointed out it was not even sterling silver--that is definitely not a deal worth posting! I try to compare it to going prices, but I don't always know what those are :)

@erick, yeah those are definitely not as expensive as they once were! I don't think they ever would have been that much, even!

that is something that i always ignore because what is important is what the product is selling for today not what it was sold for in the past

perhaps posters see "listed price" as "MSRP" which for many items, even over the years, don't change.

This is what I've started doing...when a "list price" or even the asking price seems abnormally inflated, I will do a search and see if the deal is really a deal. If not, I wont list it. If it is, but nowhere near as good as the advertiser says it is, I'll add comments telling what I found it priced like at other sites.

As much as I like Amazon...they are one of the worst about having a rediculous "Compare At" price.

I had one of those once where the original price was crazy high. It was from amazon but I didn't change it. I probably should of because it didn't make sense that the item would ever be that high of a price.
