expensive brand of toilet tissue, so this coupon will drastically reduce my price, which makes it effective for me to personally purchase. The coupon deducts $3.00 from the price; however, I need to buy two packs of toilet tissue. The coupon was a print-out that was dispensed from the self-check-out machine at the conclusion of my shopping trip at Kroger on April 30, 2013 (Kroger, 2013). This particular coupon fulfills only the reminder form of advertising. I am quite sure there are many shoppers that also have a septic system and are only able to purchase 1-ply toilet paper. These shoppers would be very interested in this coupon, as well. Customer-Oriented Sales Promotions Coupons are marketing campaigns which entice consumers to try a product by offering them a discount in the price of the product (Kerin et al., 2011, p.370). As noted previously, Scott Brand utilizes coupons to sell more of its product. Scott Brand has been known to use both direct mail to get the coupon in the customers hands, as well as, instant coupons printed during the check-out process at a grocery store. Rebates are marketing campaigns in which the customer receives cash back from a purchase when one typically mails in a copy of the receipt to prove the purchase was made. I recall getting a rebate for Energizer batteries. The offer was a $2.00 rebate if I mailed the rebate form, along with a copy of my receipt, to the manufacturer.

    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.

    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.

    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.
