Burger king coupons

Discount coupons come in so many different shapes and sizes. About ten years ago, a coupon had more value because they catered to the customer. Now it seems coupons are designed to benefit businesses. An example of this is seen in the value gained by such establishments at fast food restaurants when consumers are given the option to receive a free sandwich, or whatnot, when they but one at regular value. Does this ploy nullify requirements of instilling responsible diet considerations to prevent obesity?

More important, I thought the food products at food establishments were required to be fresh. What is it about a whopper that makes it taste stale and soggy after reheating it in a microwave oven. Plus, did you know it's cheaper to buy a value meal if you can't stomach a burger by itself, without fries. They don't accept the purchase of a value meal as part of the requirement that's expected to be met by the consumer to receive their free item. So, if you buy a burger at regular price, adding to that a side of fries and a soda costs more than what you would've spent had you gone to Burger King without the coupon.

For every coupon I stumble on, I think I would be better off simply maintaining my bragging rights that such and such company sponsors my creative projects by simply estimating the monetary value of a discount and owning it. I see plenty of bloggers who must be doing the same thing because I would not pay them a scruple, if I owned a franchise, to place an ad on their Web sight to promote whatever I sell.

I'm not good with numbers, so we can forget about that idea. Ooh, even if it means I can get free money to buy stuff. I really like buying junk I don't need. A shiny new telescope? To gaze at the new constellation ophiuchus?

THE SKY IS FALLING, haven't you heard?
