I once bought lightbulbs with a blank sticker on the package, hiding a 20-year warranty.
The bar sign doesn’t say the second beer has to be the same brand as the first one: maybe you pay twice the cheap price for one cheap beer plus one expensive one?
@ Olivier – A bar that is patronized by customers interested in volume discounts has no need to be so classy as to offer two different brands of beer.
Retail missed the opportunity of a punch line explaining what the great deal was.
I will write here what I wrote to CIDU Bill when I submitted yesterday’s beginning of this story line . . .
This one is funny to me ’cause the “BUY ONE GET ONE” promotions make me think/say, ‘Well, of course I’d get one; I paid for it, didn’t I?’
I never see “Buy one, get another one free” promotions (that’s ’cause BOGO is fun to say, whereas BOGAOF isn’t . . . ).
For the record, Andréa, I hadn’t seen your email when I posted this.
No worries . . . sorry to have ‘taken over’, so to speak . . .
Kilby – one for you and one for your date.
Generally buy one get one is problem because I can only find one I want – such as pairs of shoes or thotchkes (aka bric a brac) (like stuff for the bear village). There have been many times I have seen an item that it was 50% off (basically the same pricing per item) I would have bought it, but since I did not see a second one that I wanted – or I did not want a second one – I did not buy it at a sales loss to the seller. (Same with buy 1, get 2 free or buy 2, get one free.)
