Here’s some fine print from Gevalia. The big headline says “50% Off!” – Hooray! The fine print, which I’ve highlighted below, explains that it’s 50% off four packages after you buy four. Granted I didn’t do that well in Calculus in high school, but I think 50% off 50% of your order is actually 25% off.
I’ve got a deal for Gevalia. I’ll pay you 200% of what I normally pay for your coffee (note: if you give me seven free packets of coffee, I will buy the eighth one for 200% of the normal price).
