No, because you brought in the coupon and played by the rules. You didn't haggle over the price of the steak at the table. THAT would demean the restaurant. It's a matter of how you do it, how often, and who you offer it to.Now, does that $25 off coupon de-value their brand, their product?
My customers get the monthly coupon--much anticipated I might add--because they are regulars who sign up for the newsletter and bother to open it. They love specials and tell us over and over how much they enjoy the newsletter. The discount coupon is their private member's only bargain. If i offered it to every Tom, Dick and Harry who came in and asked, it would demean the value of the product. Isn't that why we have value lines and poster specials?
