    Question $19.95 must be a magic number

    Everything on TV is $19.95 or multiple payments of. What’s up with that?

    Personally, I think if you buy ANYTHING you see advertised on TV for that price you get what you deserve.

    It's a psychological price point. $19.95 SOUNDS like it's a lot cheaper than $20 and people are more apt to buy it, even though it's on a 5 cent difference.

    Personally, I think it's all the governments doing. Sort of covert money collections.

    I tend to agree with JBrazen. They’re just tickling the brain a bit.
