Yes, this is one of the few positive things the ASA have done. Some of the start prices were totally off-the-wall, and you'd get all this "trust me, the price will be going lower". Yes, well, fine, but what does that tell you - you want to know the actual price the item's going to be, not sit there through 500 price drops while they try to convince you that you're getting a better deal than you are.

I've NEVER understood the point of falling price "auctions." It just seems to me that they start with a ridiculously inflated price and spout a load of bollocks before doing their stupid price "plunges." Where else are you subjected to such nonsense? Imagine if you went into Sainsburys and saw a loaf of bread for £108, having some c*nt spouting drivel for 10 minutes, their voice getting louder and louder building up to a crescendo of feigned excitement, before the pumping music kicks in: Daduh,Daduh,Daduh,Daduh, deduh,deduh,deduh,deduh, diduh,diduh,diduh,diduh, deeduh,deeduh, duduh,duduh, bash! bash!bash!bash! Oh look the loaf is £1.50! Go get it! "Oooh just as well the manager's not here, we'd get such a telling-off because what we're doing is so naughty! I don't know about other people but when I buy something I just want to know the price and decide straight away. Everyone knows the start price is a joke, so what is the point with f*cking around with all that f*cking ****? I HATE IT! I have actually had an ASA complaint successfully upheld against them and will complain at every opportunity. I'd actually like to see them taken off air. Their T&Cs state that the start price is "no indication of value or worth" (a statement which in itself is a tautology). OK, so why do it then? Also if the start price is truly "randomly-generated" why is it always, and without exception extremely high? Why don't we see a start price of just a few quid more? I can't stand their dodgy sales tactics, the crap music, the annoying presenters and awful management. Amit Agrewal has a grating voice, limited command of English and his stating something is a "wery wery good prrrrice" or a "speshellll deeelllll" does not entice me to buy. Just look on Trustpilot for the horror stories of crap jewellery and terrible service. That many people cannot be lying.

As a jewellery Novice it comes across to me that the presenters are forced to build and butter up the ego of the buyers. The adverts seem to focus on the buyers.
Yet if they are such fantastic buyers... why are they always on camera and not out doing their day jobs.
Just silly little business folk with their tv star dreams.''now that's a lot of great sound, I know great sound''

I will admit I found it a guilty pleasure when I first saw Amit doing an advert on a yacht, looking like an Asian Miami vice... but the level of focus on him and his mates is ridiculous.
To put it another way... could you see Debbie Flint putting up with his sh#t/claiming her sales are really his?
