Are coupons just the manufacturer`s confession that they are over charging you?

The whole process of getting you to buy a particular product is much more complicated then that....

And, overcharging results in people buying other products---people will pay what they want, no, what the market will bear---it's called capitalism....yes?

next please

It's to get you to buy stuff.

I don't think so.

Companies that offer coupons are just giving the consumer a discount. They have high confidence in their product, and are convinced that if you try it you'll be willing to pay full price for the product the next time around.

It's their confession that they were overcharging you, and still are, but offering you a slight discount so you will buy in bulk so they earn more than before.

No, it's just so that you buy more of their stuff.

I like your way of saying that.

It could quite possibly be.

No, it's totally a gimmick to get you to buy their product and hopefully buy it again at full price.

Yes, it is. Everything gets more expensive than it should be.

I think so. I hate coupons. My mother and grandmothers just love them, though.

I don't think so, but that's an interesting way to look at it.

No, coupons are ways of getting people to buy their stuff; and they bank on you liking it and buying more.
