Today's office debate: Who is the worst at the Upsale?

Recommended Posts

In the spirit of the Christmas shopping season. Who is the absolute worst at upselling when you buy something?

My candidates? CITGO, Caribou Coffee and Best Buy.

I don't care if I go to the restroom in those places, they are always trying to get me to buy something more or bigger.

No, I do not want to buy an extended warranty on this gas can.

Comcast, hahaha!

I called to cancel my cable TV service, and they're trying to not only get to keep their TV service, but also get phone and Internet from them! Talk about cajones.

I went to a Jiffy Lube a while back and it was the worst by far.

Speaking of lube, I know some ladies of the night who are fans of the Upsell.

No, I don't want a half and half! Just get to it!

Good one. Best upsell lately for car places is the cabin air filter. They will ask you every time, whether you need it or not, and charge you $50+ for something you could do yourself easily for $10.

Also, the apple store comes to mind.

I took my kids to the movies the other night and the girl at the concession counter was trying to upsale popcorn... it is annoying.

Yea the movies is the worst. "For $1.00 for you can get a large that comes with free refills" Who the hell is going to get refills on popcorn and soda in the middle of the damn movie?

Yep... and the damn cup is like 2 liters, why do I need a refill?

I get tired every damn time I go to a fast food place and they ask me if I want to upsize my combo to a medium. I mean their small fries and drinks would be considered jumbo size several years ago.

Oh, and it may not be upsell specifically (even though they are kings of it) but Guitar Center and their obscene margins make me sick.
