Discounting This Promotion

leave a comment »

So earlier today I heard some business pimping its “tax rebate” sale. Basically, the store will pay your sales tax.

Is it really worth it to buy airtime over a promotion that amounts to a 7 percent discount? I remember years ago when I worked a few weeks at a store that was going out of business. Customers would come up with their discounted items and would be bewildered when their “10 percent off” products didn’t result in a lower price. How quickly we forget about that good ol’ sales tax.
