ALLRIOT kickass political t-shirts

Hey -,
Hate to break it to you but discounts are always built into the retail price. It's Black Friday and retailers are getting more and more sneaky every year. 

Research by consumer group Which? found that just 1 in 20 Black Friday deals are genuine. ​​And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Researchers at Princeton University and the University of Chicago examined 53,000 product pages on 11,000 websites. They found that about 1 in 10 retail sites are using “dark pattern” strategies to psychologically exploit shoppers and deceive them into spending more money online. ​

​​Here are several tactics that researchers caught retailers employing to get shoppers to spend more money.
​- Fake reviews and testimonials. Hello Amazon!

​- ​Sneaking items or charges into shopping carts.

​- Signing shoppers up for a “hidden subscription.”

- ​Using fake countdown timers and limited offer messages.

​- Deceptive activity messages informing users of inflated product popularity.

​- Obstruction. Some sites use obstruction strategies to make it easy for users to sign up for something that is difficult to cancel.

​At ALLRIOT, we like to keep it simple. You won't find a single popup on our website. Our ads don't follow you around the web forever after you've visited our site. Our t-shirts are AWESOME, so we don't feel the need to use any of these dirty tricks to entice you to buy more. ​

​Our ethos is simple. We operate according to these principles:

We don't play the discount game, and that's a good thing. It means that you're always getting the best price possible. It's like a sale that never ends. And yes, you guys get a secret promo code in your inbox once in a while. The discount omes out of our pocket. For us, it's an awesome way to say thank you for your support!

Everything we release has a purpose and a story to tell. Does the world need another lazy logo shirt? No, it doesn’t. ​
We produce in very small quantities and constantly review our range to keep our offering fresh and relevant. Leftover stock is compiled into mystery packs and used to raise money for charities.

We look for ways to enable social change through responsible business practices that respect and empower every person that interacts with our brand – from the people who make our tees with great care to customers who love and support our brand.
