This Tissue Coupon Can’t Possibly Be Verizon Math

Verizon math, as you may recall, is what happens when copywriters or customer service drones aren’t quite clear on how decimal points or cents signs work. Using Verizon math, $.01 and .01¢ are the same number. Is this item from the Redplum coupon book an example of a silly typo, or of Verizon math?

This coupon that reader Stuart spotted in the flyer this weekend is either a funny coupon or the worst coupon ever. It all depends on how the company that processes the coupons and reimburses retailers understands the concept of “face value.”

    Lemme get this straight, I buy 3 boxes of high-priced Scotties facial tissues and the store gives me 1/2 of 1 cent discount? That’s like a .0000001 discount per tissue? I’ll get back to you on that.

    Redplum actually honors unsubscribe requests. Best thing I’ve ever done for my mailbox.
