I Just Fell for a Marketing Gimmick…

Be warned – This post is not about any sort of deal or coupon. Instead, I feel the need to admit that I just fell for a great marketing gimmick. 🙁 I was at the Dollar Tree this morning scoping out the current deals. As I was heading to checkout, I noticed a 2 pack of Orbit Gum at the register priced at just $1. Since I had just finished off an omelet with red onions, this gum was literally calling my name. And at 50¢ per pack, I thought this wasn’t a terrible price and grabbed a package without a second thought.
As soon as I got into the car and opened up one of the packs, I realized that each package only includes 7 pieces of gum so I essentially paid $1 for a total of 14 pieces of gum (not a good deal as all you Hip2Savers know!). So that is my confession for today – I am quite embarrassed that I fell for this marketing gimmick.
So now it’s confession time for you! What sort of marketing gimmicks have you fallen for?!
