When is 20% off not a good deal?

It amazes me when I see competitors advertising high percentage off...20% compared to a company that is not inflating their prices and giving you a good deal from the start....

For example, for what we charge for troubleshooting 129$ plus most minor repairs between  60$ and $95 for a total of between 189$-224$.......the 20% off guy starts his troubleshooting at $400 with 20% off 80 dollars off so troubleshooting at $320..its almost 75-100$ more than what are troubleshooting and repair would come to.  Panels changes can be $3000-$4000 with the 20% off it would be $2400-$3200... where our panel changes are between $1500 and $2000 you would save between $900 and $1200 dollars.  If your getting a big job done....does not hurt to ask for a second opinion. I always tell customers check around...if a customer calls me and describes his or her problem and what the tech is proposing for a repair, I'd gladly give my honest advise, if its a good deal I tell them it is.  But most of the time when you run to the 20% off names mentioned....its not a good deal.  I have had many customers tell me of what high prices they want, so be aware of the percentage off guys.
