OK, OK. It's not a scandal. In fact, it's really kind of stupid. But still, it ticked me off and that's what blogs are for, yes? So here's my question: Is it legal to advertise for a product that DOESN'T EXIST?
I tore this thing out of the Review-Journal the other day figuring that I'm up early these days going to OJville and all, so maybe I can stop and try out the 7-11 iced coffee thing. Except that I went to four 7-11s (the first two in search of this, the third and fourth because I had to know) and nobody would take this coupon.
Why? Well, 7-11 does not have a 10 ounce cup of, from what I could tell, ANYTHING. It's a farce. They put a quantity on their coupon that would entice people to come in assuming that once they were there, they'd say, "Oh, OK, give me the big one." Or something.
