Strategies and Tactics (contd) Opportunistic Pricing: involves charging customers unreasonably high prices when goods or services are in short supply Discounts: reductions from normal list prices, ex. Multiple-unit pricing: offering customers discounts if they purchase in quantity Bundling: involves grouping together several products into a package that offers extra value at a special price, ex. optional, captive, byproduct Suggested Retail Price: manufacturer suggestion
