Carpet Sales Incentives

Another sneaky sales trick that contributes to homeowners receiving bad or unsound carpet advice from an unprofessional salesperson is due to manufacturer or distributor sales incentives and retailer sales contests.

 

These include cash bonuses, paid vacations, cruises, prizes and other valuable rewards for store owners or salespeople rewarded for selling the most amount of a certain brand or style of carpet, pad or other flooring product. 

 

Similarly, if an unscrupulous carpet retailer buys a large quantity of a particular carpet or pad because of a special discounted price, a sly store owner or manager may require that all their salespeople encourage, push, urge and suggest these discounted goods to their customers whether it is a suitable choice or not. 

 

Any homeowner could become a victim of this type of carpet scam under these circumstances and end up with carpet or other flooring products that doesn't meet their needs or perform the way they may had hoped or expected. 

 

You could easily waste hundreds or even thousands of dollars just by selecting the wrong carpet or padding.

 

Carpet Buying Facts:

  • Carpet shoppers must have access to honest & accurate carpet buying information in order to make wise and informed carpet choices. 

  • Consumers often receive conflicting carpet information and are duped by unscrupulous carpet salespeople into buying upgraded products or extra services that are unnecessary or have little value.

  • Homeowners need to learn how to recognize and avoid common carpet scams, gimmicks & rip offs. 

  • Consumers need to know which carpet dealers are honest and reputable, offering fair and square deals and qualified installation.

 

There are plenty of honest and reputable carpet stores and lots of very knowledgeable carpet salespeople ready and waiting to help you make a good carpet purchase, but it's not easy to tell the good ones from the bad ones. 

 

That's why I have created my own special list of locally-owned carpet retailers that I recommend to my readers. I use all my 30+ years of experience to locate the absolute best carpet dealers I can find all across America.

 

We haven't yet discussed getting your carpet measured properly, which is also a very important factor you must consider.
