Reader David sends us what might be the worst coupon we’ve ever seen. Not because it’s a bad deal, ($10 bucks off regular, sale and clearance is cool; we’re not complaining) but because we broke our brain in two reading the exclusions and conditions.
First of all, the coupon can only be used from Friday and Saturday, September 7 and 8, 2007 until 1pm only. And then it only gets worse:
“VALID ON REGULAR, SALE & CLEARANCE PRICES IN STORE ONLY. COUPON CAN ONLY BE USED ONCE AND IS LIMITED TO ONE PER CUSTOMER. COUPON IS NOT VALID ON MORNING SPECIALS AND MUST BE SURRENDERED AT TIME OF PURCHASE.
*Valid Friday and Saturday, September 7 and 8, 2007 until 1pm only. Cannot be combined with any savings pass, extra discount, or credit offer, except opening a new Macy’s account. Excludes Prior Purchases;

This coupon is so painful to read that it causes us to repeat the possibly apocryphal Marshall Field quote: “Give the lady what she wants.” Even if it’s ten bucks off a pair of Levi’s. Or an area rug.
Oh yeah, and remember if you’re going to use this coupon… you have to print it out yourself because it won’t be available in the store. That being said, we do hope at least one of you will use this to save $10 because that’s the sort of happy, friendly, nice people we are. May we suggest purchasing some Frango Mints? Enjoy.
