Shopper Preferences

(CNN)--You've seen them before -- grocery store deals offering 10 for 10 bucks.

But that doesn't mean you have to load up your cart.

Marketing experts tell the New York Times many shoppers end up stocking up on the deals when a lot of the time, you can get the same bargain and just buy one.

They say it's power of suggestion one-oh-one: stores getting you to think you're getting a good deal to get you to buy more.

The bulk-buying bargains aren't new, but grocery store owners say competition to come up with them is even more fierce in this economy.
