Just raise the price and slap a SALE sticker on it.

I'm not certain which hand gesture is appropriate for this shocker.

Wal-Mart does that all the time :)
when I worked there, something would get marked up, then get a $5 "roll back"
when, in fact, it still cost more than before the "roll back"

they recently did that with dog food.
for a few months I was gettin a bag for $30.

next time I go to get a bag, it's now $40 and a "roll back" with a "was" price of $45.

just seems to be the way retailers work, for whatever reason.

The reason retailers work that way is that sheeple work that way.

Newegg's pricing changes based on supply and demand. If it's a popular item, what the price is right now might not be the same price 2 hours from now, unfortunately. Kinda lame but, it's a smart business methodology... to some degree.

The other day, zipzoomfly had a "free shipping" sale, but a few minutes after the "free shipping" promo made up, the prices went up $5 on basically everything on their entire website.

They were caught in the act, red handed so to speak.

I still think that zipzoomfly has decent prices, and I order from there often because now I moved and I have to pay tax at newegg.

Mwave is ok but their website is not as nice. Lately they have shuffled inventory through ebay to take advantage of live cashback, which has worked out for me.

I will go to newegg to learn about what I want to buy, then check prices at other websites.

lol ... My apologizes to newegg shoppers. If i hadn't bought those headphones 12 hours earlier I wouldn't have forced newegg to raise the price of the product and announce that the items were 'on sale'.
