Submission + - Tricks in Advertising

unique_parrot writes: So there are many tricks in advertising/marketing.
Like "Save xxx% when shopping over xxx$“? I think that’s psychologically very interesting, because it ommits the question "Do I really need/want this thing?“. The word "Save“ is not nice here, it rather should be "Get xxx% of, if shopping over xxx$“.
Or the famous "Internet Speed UP TO xxMB/s“. That’s OK with me, if I pay UP TO the requested price, otherwise it’s an unhounest marketing speech.
What tricks have you uncovered yourself, what are your most hated tricks, what should others be warned/aware about?
