I paid my latest credit card bill this morning, and I noticed this offer at the bottom of the slip:
ORDER 6 - 6 OZ. OMAHA STEAKS TOP SIRLONGS AT THE SPECIAL PRICE OF $29.99 (A $23 SAVINGS) AND RECEIVE 6 - 4 OZ. OMAHA STEAKS BURGERS FREE! CALL 1-800-228-XXXX AND ASK FOR ITEM 4505XXX. ADD $9.99 STANDARD SHIPPING AND HANDLING PER ADDRESS.
Maybe I'm just out of it, but do people regularly order beef in the mail? I mean, I know all about the holiday hams and things like that, but I just view that as a special, once-a-year case. This makes it seem like ordinary practice.
