Hello everyone! Just a quick question.

Was it in Star Signs that Linda said goods/stuff sell more quickly when the price ends with point ninety-nine (.99)? And was it .99 or .95? Thanks in advance for the help.

Yes, Linda talks about stuff selling more quickly when the price ends with point ninety-nine (0.99), not only will that work if you reduce the price, but it works just the same even if you increase the price! The reason is in our third dimension of reality, 9 is the big boss, as proven through the 3-6-9 mystery. 9 being the number of mars and action, the repetition of it screams to your mind, BUY! BUY! Incidentally, the color connected to the number 9 is ruby red which as Linda also talks about, tells our subconscious mind to charge forward! GO!

Hope I helped.

Love n peace

maybe it takes a little time for it to catch on, and garage sales being as short as they are, the nines don't have enough time to work their magic.

most shopkeepers will attest to this phenomenon, although in their minds, the 'logical reason' is the items 'appear to be cheaper than they are'

=Gooober, that's a good point about the garage sale........... + most people want to pay only .10 cents for things.....

I accidentally typed that equals sign before your name, then decided to leave it, to show you how the 11's are following you.......only sideways

I use the .99 rule a lot. It seems to work.

I agree it's everywhere and does work, but I think some of the power is the fact 9 is one less than 10 - no one want's to pay up to two digits!

What annoys me though, about nine, is that people always round up! If I'm paying by credit (which is 99 per cent of the time), then I am paying the actual cost - not the rounded figure. Therefore, the tellers are lying! Does this happen in the US? It might not - we don't have one or two cent pieces in Oz - the lowest is five cents, so that's what they round to, but I think they should only round once they know you're paying cash.

Heaps of Love,

how it hides behind the fabric of our poor,
browbeat days, shining brightly, and we don't even know it.

No, retailers have to charge the exact marked price here (or can accept less), or else it could have legal implications for said businesses.
