"The normal rules as contained in the Consumer Protection Act will apply. If a product is purchased on sale and it turns out to be defective within six months from the date of purchase then a consumer can return the goods and insist on a refund, repair or replacement."Searle explains that although there are great deals on the day, consumers need to make wise decisions when it comes to spending their money. According to CPA Legal Expert, Vaughan Pierce, consumers need to ensure that they know what they are purchasing.
"Consumers must be mindful of bait marketing. Bait advertising is a common form of false advertising which the CPA prohibits. It occurs when an item is advertised at a sale price but the seller does not have sufficient stock to last until the end of the sale. Often consumers may purchase other more expensive items from the store instead."
