Modell's Offers You 2 Swim Trunks For $30 Or $12.99 Each

Commenter Randomhookup would like to contribute to the problem of Consumerist posting too many of these.

Yes, I know it’s been done to death on Consumerist; yes, a bunch of commenters will be upset; yes, it’s lazy journalism — but I’m a rabble rouser.

I spotted this at a Boston-area Modell’s and did a doubletake. I give them credit, however, for accepting their mistake. The associate I pointed it out to took it down almost immediately since he is good at math.

Please direct your complaints to Randomhookup, thank you!
