Push-Pull Marketing, Product Advertising, Customer-oriented Sales Promotions The pros of a coupon are: they are extremely sought after by consumers, they can be placed on a website and eliminate the need to print, consumers purchase newspapers purposely for the coupons included. The cons of a coupon are: coupons can be more expensive to print than the face value of the coupon (Kerin et al., 2011, p.371), and consumers may be required to purchase multiple products in order to use the coupon; this may deter consumers from using it. The pros of a rebate are: rebates are typically more enticing to consumers because of the higher face value than that of a typical coupon. The cons of a rebate are: consumers may not use the rebate because they do not want to fool with mailing in the form and proof of purchase. That being said, it may be considered a pro; the company will not have to fulfill the rebate if the form is not received. The coupon appeals to me more than a rebate. I, personally, do not like to fill out rebate forms, mail them in, or wait 4 to 6 weeks to receive the rebate. Coupons can be doubled or tripled, as well as, being much more convenient to use.ReferencesKerin, R.A., Hartley, S.W., & Rudelius, W. (2011). Marketing: The core (4thed.).

As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.
Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern
I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern
The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
