I think this is pretty funny.
This afternoon I got an email from NeimanMarcus.com that goes something like this: “End of Season Sale-Take an extra 1/3 off already already reduced prices.” Nothing funny yet, right? Well wrong. In early July I wrote about NM.com offering 40% off already reduced prices.
Remember these shoes?
Last month the sale price was $305. Today’s 1/3 off sale, which is 33% off (like we didn’t know that), is $329. What’s worse is that back then there were still eight weeks of summer. Now we are down to about four. So the headline of the email should have been: Pay More Use Less!
