    There’s a store near us that almost always has some kind of sale going on. The catch is it isn’t immediate savings - you have to fill out and send in a rebate form. If you manage to do that, they send you “store credit” as a physical piece of paper you have to remember to bring to the store. I often wonder what percent of rebates never get submitted or used. Probably pretty high.

    I had a laugh the other day because one of their competitors was advertising an “instant savings, no waiting for rebates” sale.

      Almost any big discount chain where I live does “buy 19, get one free!” thing, preying upon people who see free and switch off thinking. Another big chain opened a few years ago here. They loterally advertise you are free to take only what you need, cuz their promotions are for aingle products.

      And fuck me, it works, at least on me.

      Edit: Just noticed…3 days ago, dammit :|
