These Gap Pants Are On Sale For Ten Dollars More Than The Original Price

Reader Ryan caught his local Gap offering a great deal on some snazzy pants: only ten dollars more than the original price!

Like our similar story about Kohl’s, we’re struck by the half-assed sloppiness of the whole thing. We see only two explanations: the original $59.50 tag was a mistake, and the real price should have been $69.50, or it’s a careless attempt to ripoff customers. We tried to guess what pants these were by looking around on, and we found no dark pants that were originally $69.50.
