"We occasionally offer items at a price below the manufacturer-determined minimum advertised price. When we do this, we cannot display the lower price on the Web site, though we can show it to you once you add the item to your Shopping Cart. Please be assured that simply adding an item to your cart does not obligate you to buy it–you can always delete it from your cart if you decide not to purchase it."
Ain’t that funny? I’m wondering whether price comparison bots know how to work around these silly policies.

I'm CEO of an online trade publishing firm in the marketing and defense verticals. We try to make news and data digestible and useful in an environment that is more noisy each day. This personal blog mixes my thoughts and interests on politics, business, software, and more, based on my business and personal experiences. Over the years I have posted items that turned out spectacularly wrong, and a few posts that stood the test of times better. Personal views only.
