skeptical advertising part 1

"First year FREE!"
PP: Second year twice the regular price of the first year.

"No Payments No Interest"
PP: Interest rate thereafter will be double the going rate."

"We can accomodate any credit rating"
PP: 40% APR. Not bad!

PP: Aged leftovers.

"One Day Sale"
PP: Hurry! We can't get rid of the crap.

"Candy 2/$1"
PP: Isn't that the same stuff from a few years ago?

"Baked Fresh"
PP: But delivered from the other side of the country.

"$1 for 1/2 gallon of chilled orange juice"
PP: Stockperson left it out overnight. Had to get rid of it in a hurry.

"Blended Juice"
PP: To cover up the aged smell from the one juice.

"2 for $4"
PP: 1 for $2. Don't get greedy on me.

PP: Nothin' like the "homemade" taste of Auntee's Apple Pie that's sold by the crate full.

"These businesses support our local farmers with pride!"
PP: By buying the commercial brand from the grocery store. That helps.
