    Name a retailer who doesn't do that lol. 'Sale' prices are almost always based on SRP rather than what you could have bought it for before the 'sale'.

    Aren't they all doing it? Clothes stores "make" you think you have good deal with 30% off. Car dealerships "point" at the msrp at window sticker as their base price. Grocery stores "advertise" their sale price at 1.99/2.99/3.99. Subscribe services "recommend" their middle "best-value" package option.
    Pricing strategy, odd-even price, anchored price are making it easy to fool consumer nowadays.
    The real price is the price you willing to pay for.

    If it's indeed the B016LO4UTA Anker Quick Charger, camelcamelcamel's price history has it being offered by a third-party seller.

    Earliest price was $49.99 on November 5, 2015.

    Very shortly afterward, it looks like it fell to abount $26 most of the time until early September, with occasional sales dropping it to $23 or less. From september to Early late November, it was $23, and if I'm reading the chart right, it spiked to $59.99 at what looks like just before Black Friday, then dropped to about $17. It's been pretty much hugging the $15.99 price point since January 10.

    Well well well. It looks like Amazon is going to be investigated for allegations of deceptive discounting.
    It won't stop me from shopping Amazon but I'll keep an eye on the pricing.
