Those Alluring Lures . . . May 16, 2010

Posted by nrhatch in Humor, Less IS More, Mindfulness.

It’s no wonder we succumb to the constant bombardment:


Save BIG!!! 

Bonus Buys!!! 


Last Chance!!! 

It’s like getting PAID to SHOP! 


Bonus Bucks!!!



Those alluring lures . . .

How often do you take the bait?

My favorite is, “The more you spend, the more you save!”

Actually, the science behind it is amazing. For remarkably good reading, and a very informative book, take a look at “Predictably Irrational” by Dan Ariely.

Oh, Rik ~ that is a good one!

And thanks for the book suggestion. The title alone is wonderful! I’m on my way to check it out.

Dan Ariely is muy smart! No wonder he is an MIT prof!

It is, isn’t it? : )

And get this . . . each of these BOLD pronouncements came from a single, one page, internet ad that I got in my mailbox today.

A single ad.
