Off the top of my head, how about:
Convenient, easy opening packaging.
If you happen to be Wolverine from the X-men.
Fool proof design.
Because our customers are truly fools.

My favorite is "On clearance for 40% off!" @Walgreens
Wow, is that really a *clearance* discount? Then you see the same item or even one with a higher count on sale for cheaper with the weekly flyer coupons! >>

My favorite gimmick is the 10 for $10 deals at the supermarket, it makes you think you HAVE to buy 10 of an item to get the deal when all you need to do is buy 1 for $1.

I see people piling 10 of an item in the cart sometimes at Safeway an I tell them they can buy just one or two and they are so grateful for the good news :)
Another one is that department stores like JCPenney and Kohls *always* have at least 25% off watches, 40% off diamonds and gemstones, and 60% off gold and silver. They technically can't have them on sale for x amount of time so when the time comes they put out a "coupon" for the same discount! Gee, I wonder if there is an incredibly substantial markup when 60% is the default sale :) (I used to work at a department store ;)
