I’ve previously posted on the (increasing) practice of retailers heralding something as “sale-priced” when in fact it’s marked down from $20 to $19.49 (at the grocery store, make that $2.89 instead of $2.99). See, “Micro-Coupons and Micro-Sales.”
So, I feel obliged to note (brag about) the terrific savings I scored at JC Penney’s most recent sale, concluded yesterday.
The style of turtleneck I like was already marked down from $25 to $10.
Then, I used a $10 coupon available on minimum purchases of $25.
Total cost for the three turtlenecks I bought: 3 x $10 = $30, minus $10 = $6.67 apiece.
I doubt even my Dad could do any better than that (and unlike when my Dad buys stuff on sale, the turtlenecks were actually my size!).
