Who knew people wanted to save money? I sure didn't. I wouldn't have seen this "saving money" craze with the Hupple Telescope. People fascinate me. Actually wait, I messed that up. *I fascinate people.* I'm not sold on this "using coupons to save money" thing long-term, though. Does anyone else think this craze could be the new "pogs" or "slap bracelets" or "AIDS"? I don't know. I guess I'm a late adopter or a non-believer or a handsome guy or whatever. I must admit that I have taken advantage of this coupon thing a few times myself:
- Via Poopon, I paid $40 for a bag of senior citizen feces (an $85 value). I needed some to finish my master's thesis (Is Old Poop Different Than Old People Poop: A Study), so I must admit this was a great deal.
- Via Hoops-Coups, I paid $80 to touch the birthmark on Drew Brees' face. I know, that's SO wrong, right? Why would a company called HOOPS Coups have a deal with an NFL player?
- Via Groupon, I paid $10 for a $20 gift card at Barnes + Noble. Kind of a waste. I temporary forgot that reading is for nerds, so I just bought a bookmark that looked like a dolphin because I needed a friend. With the leftover $17.22 on my card, I tried to buy 5 muffins at the Starbucks that was located WITHIN the B+N. After some latte-attitude, I screamed that I was technically IN a Barnes + Noble and my card should be accepted. I didn't win that argument, though, and the policeman that threw me out told me that Starbucks is a different company and have their own giftcards.
