Spear

In auto sales, a tactic in which a salesperson speaks with a person away from the dealership site and offers an impossibly high price for a trade-in, provided the person comes to the dealership that same day to finalize the deal. The intent of a spear is to encourage the customer to come back to that dealership, at which time the salesperson will quote the real price for the trade-in.
