Ouch - $11 for four AAA (not even lithium) batteries?

I think that the examples posted just show that nobody really reads those labels, even those who print them, A bright yellow sign with words like "clearance" or "bargain" are enough to catch your attention for the second needed to make what is described as impulse buying decision. The fact that the original price is in small fonts and the new one in big ones helps with the whole illusion. LOML when at shops always says "look! that's only 4 €! when in reality it is 4,99, and I always reply, no, it is 5€, I took the habit of rounding all those figures up instead of down and it has spared me buying unneeded items many times.
