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.

sounds like you meant the most annoying instead of worst. If thats the case, i'd have to say shoe stores are up there.

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.

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.

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?

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.

HDMI cables with your new HDTV

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.
