In honor of April Fools’ Day a few days ago, we first offer you an ad to make you chuckle, and then two ads in our series of ones that don’t quite offer what they claim (but which throw in a chuckle at no extra cost).
Retailers are notorious for advertising that “everything” is on sale when there are many exclusions. Old Navy tried to play it straight(er) by advertising a big sale this way:
Thanks for trying, Old Navy.
Southwest Airlines recently offered an airfare sale with “no gotchas.”
Then what’s this?
Thanks for nothing, Southwest. But thanks to Richard G. for the submission.
Our last “deal” is at Ace Hardware. Just use your loyalty card and pay $3 more than the regular price!
Thanks for nothing, Ace.
If you find an ad that screams “thanks for nothing,” please pass it on to Edgar(at symbol)MousePrint.org . Thanks.
