Advertised Price

AAA

DEFINITION of 'Advertised Price'

The price of a product or service as displayed or announced in an advertisement or radio/TV commercial. If the advertised price is well below the normal price of a product, it is likely to be a loss-leader that is priced to entice customers into the retail store in the hopes that they will make additional purchases.


A company may offer a price-matching guarantee to its customers, based on the advertised price for a specific product. If a rival offers the same product for a lower advertised price, the company will either match the lower price or refund the difference if the customer has already purchased the product from it.

INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Advertised Price'

There are strict laws in North America against false or misleading selling price representations, such as sales made above an advertised price. Stiff fines are payable by a company that sells a product above its advertised price, except in cases where the advertised price was a mistake that was rectified promptly.
