At university and college, the washing machines on campus are rubbish and make u spend money multiple times before washing your clothes, and they also drench your clothes to make you spend money on multiple cycles of tumble drying. Also, the company will be separate from the college/ uni and therefore it’s not guaranteed at all that you will ever get your money back

Who else watches these with ad-blocker?

I'd call most of them scams instead of 'businesses tricking you'.

I had a similar experience with a loan company (thankfully they didn't hit me with late fees for god know why). I noticed that autopay was suddenly turned off and I could not turn it back on for a couple of months. This started last December and ended in February. I now check my the loan's autopayment every month to make sure it doesn't somehow turn off again. I am pretty sure this is a similar trick to the first bill not being sent out trick in the video.

If you are offered a product/service for free, then you are not the customer, you are the product.

Dude. That last one fucking killed me. I’ve been a salesperson and THIS IS ON POINT. My bf was just looking for a new mattress (he’s never done sales or anything like it) and was consulting me... the salesperson DID EVERYTHING ON THIS LIST. I told him to leave IMMEDIATELY. He gave his number out of pressure.... and lo and be hold... That crazy sale price that was only happening that day JUST GOT EXTENDED OMG. Fuck sales.

Pro reverse-trick for 0:25:
1.) Buy a mattress
2.) Offer it online for a lower price
3.) Go to the store, tell them about that offer and get another matress for the lower price
4.) Give the initially purchased mattress back

I work in a cinema, if you don't say what size food/drink you want we just give you a large.

Do NOT trust Petco and NEVER go there for ANYTHING. Someone who is close to me brought their dog to get a haircut and when they got him back, he couldn’t walk properly anymore. And when they tried to see the camera footage, they denied them because of a bullshit reason. They could’ve sued but there was a reason that came up that I can’t remember. But now their poor dog cannot fucking walk properly or I don’t think can walk anymore bc of a severe spinal injury that results from being DROPPED. And the thing about Petco selling toxic fake plants pisses me off more, PLUS the horrible conditions they put the reptiles, rodents, etc, through. So:

TL;DR: PetCo is a horrible fucking company that needs to be shutdown ASAP.

Raising prices and then showing them as discounted even though it's the regular price.
