Supermarkets put stuff on sale. You go into a supermarket intending to buy Cheerios. And then Safeway is like, "No. That's not gonna happen. You're gonna buy Special K." "Says who?" "Says the fact that Special K is on sale at three boxes for $8, and Cheerios is $27.99. And that's with a club card. Without a club card, a box of Cheerios is $300." Keep in mind that Safeway does this for no reason at all. It's not a marketing strategy. How is that a marketing strategy? It's clearly a stupidity strategy. It accomplishes nothing, aside from making you, me, and Safeway much way more stupider.
