The consumer assumes they’ve gotten a good deal and the retailer doesn’t lose their shirt. It’s a fundamentally dishonest way to go about doing things, but in the end, everyone is usually happy and the costumer if mostly none the wiser.
Well, WTForever 21 reader Shannon got wise to Forever 21 this month in a most alarming way.
According to Shannon, she purchased the below pictured top online at Forever21.com during a clearance sale for $15.99.
She thought she was getting a good deal. That is, until the top actually came in the mail and she took a gander at the tag attached to it.
While Forever 21 had sold the top online at an allegedly discounted rate of $15.99, the tag on the tastefully bedazzled tee she received read $15.80.
A FINAL SALE, NOT RETURNABLE $15.80 that, according to Shannon, they charged her $15.99 for ON SALE.
This takes fake sales to a whole new level and “Go fuck yourself, customer” sentiment into Olympic Gold standard stratosphere. Yes, it’s only a $.19 difference, but that small difference sends a big message. The big message being “We quite literally give approximately zero fucks about even LOOKING like we give zero fucks.”
Well, Forever 21, I’ve got a message for you. Probably familiar with it by now. It’s an oldie but a goodie.
Forever 21, WTF?
Now until December 31, 2011 ad space on WTForever21.com starts at little more than $1/day.

WTForever21.com readers love affordable, handmade items (particularly jewelry) from Etsy Shops and they LOVE to laugh. If you’ve got a comedy, fashion, beauty or DIY blog, readers of WTForever 21 will be all over it!

Suedette Poncho: $24.90
But is a deep discount on winter wear worth the trade off of looking like a silver back gorilla in the line at Starbucks? Someone start the mist machine so she can feel at home.
Here’s a tip for those fashionistas who can’t resist a sale – whilst wearing the sale item, if the model looks like a jungle dwelling creature that routinely throws clumps of its own waste at tourists, I’d say pass.
Forever 21, WTF?
But not every deal online today will be worth having. Cyber Monday, just like Black Friday, can be riddled with unwanted overstocked inventory that stores just want off their shelves to make room for newer, shinier and higher priced merchandise.
So how do you separate the mess from the joys? Good news, my chicken cutlets of love. I’ve rummaged through the virtual sale bin and come up with five items worth buying during Forever 21′s Cyber Monday sale.
Shearling Collar Denim Jacket: $17.88
Temperatures are finally in the solid winter time range across the country now and outerwear is becoming, or has become, everyday wear. Take advantage of Forever 21′s Cyber Monday free shipping and slashed prices to stock up on bulky coats and warm jackets.
Classic Crew Neck Sweater: $12.00
Cozy Knit Cardigan: $15.54
Empire Waist Sweater Cardigan: $3.45
If you’ve been waiting for a Deal to stock up on chic layering staples, Cyber Monday is the best time. Snatch up for sweaters and cardigans that will be thin enough to wear underneath under coats and jackets and thin enough that you can wear them into Spring.
Cable Knit Beanie: $4.08
Toss this on over a messy bun or let your hair down and use your head as a warm accessory, Any way you wear this beanie, at $4 it has to be worth it.
Dark Skinny Ankle Jean: $9.00
Perfect for tucking into boots.
Casual Plaid Button up: $13.99
Forever 21 seems to be having a sale on almost anything plaid. Pair these with soft cardigans and warm jackets for casual coziness in the coming months.
Happy Cyber Monday shopping and good luck with the digital crowds!
If you’re amongst them in the fray today or are recovering from your own mission, covered in the sweat and shame of the fallen, bless you. Bless you for keeping our economy afloat and Godspeed on Cyber Monday.
Now, there is no doubt Black Friday and Cyber Monday offer deals worth fighting for. Flat screen TVs halved in price and sold in sample quantities, special edition e-readers with accessories packages thrown in for free, and that most glorious of all sales – the sales on clothes, accessories and beauty products.
Being a champion of cheap products in all those categories, you would think Forever 21′s Black Friday offerings would be the bomb. You would think that, wouldn’t you, you poor, diluted fools.
Well fucking think again! It’s a Buy One Get One Free mishmash of crap they couldn’t get rid of during the rest of the year.
Slanted Boxes Top: $9.99
She looks pretty contented for someone who just got run over by a truck in a Road Runner cartoon.
Crotchet Front Cardigan: $22.99
Ugh, woof. Where was this couch doily when I did my Mentally Retarded Female costume post? Oh and by the way, the plus size version of this costs $2 more than the standard sized version. Thanks for the hint, Forever 21.
Mixed Print Maxi Skirt: $3.96
Yes, I’d definitely like to buy one of these hillbilly table cloths and wear it as a skirt. Especially if I get the second one free! Holy Hell.
And in case you think I’m just picking out the bad stuff, here’s a link to their Black Friday sale section. It’s riddled with things that might as well be human feces. I would just as soon wear human shit on my body than pay for any of these.
Which makes sense, because this “sale” is nothing more than thinly disguised dump of unwanted inventory.
