Consumer Affairs: Beware High Pressure Sales This is an incredible deal, but you have to act fast! This is a limited time offer and once it's gone, it's gone. Don't miss out. Don't you care about your family's happiness? What are you waiting for? Buy now! ... High pressure sales tactics can prey on emotions and impair rational judgement. That time-share condo seemed like a good idea when the salesman was pitching it. On the next Sound of Ideas, host Mike McIntyre and a panel of experts show you how to spot high-pressure sales and tell you how to take evasive action. Tuesday morning at 9.
