Having worked for NCIX I can honestly say that raising prices and discounting to show a sale price is not normal practice. Sometimes it may seem that way with how aggressively commodity products like DRAM and hard drives are priced compounded with rapidly changing costs and quick inventory turns but for everything else that is cost stable it doesn't / shouldn't happen. Having worked with Bestbuy a bit since starting at Corsair, they're extremely careful about how they advertise sales as well to avoid claims of fraudulent discounting.
