19 Times When You Shouldn’t Pay for an Upgrade

Most people believe if they pay more for an “upgraded” versions of some product, they get better quality as well. Unfortunately, this rule doesn’t work every time. Take, for example, organic food. Some of them can be 300% more expensive than other foods and drinks. But do you know that if a product is covered with skin, like bananas or avocados, you can safely buy non-organic ones?
Another example: opting for a higher Internet speed. Some Internet providers offer blazing-fast home Internet. But unless you’re a professional online gamer, you don’t need such speeds, and paying extra for this service is a waste of money. So how about we figure out if there’s any need to pay more for an extended warranty or a big helping of French fries?
