Harbor Freight monthly ads

OK, my wife buys stuff there, I buy stuff there and my step son buys stuff there. Three different ID's on the purchases and the ads go to three different addresses. My step son dropped his off at the house. Mrs. gets one here to the house and I get one at the office address. All three are different. Not only that, the 20 percent off coupon expires 11-30-17 on one of them and on the other two, expires 12-31-17. All three have the request to the post office to deliver between 10-24 and 10-30-17 The coupons for the free stuff are also different from one book to the next.

If you look closely at the ads they will often list the same product in the same booklet for two different prices.

I hate the way they make the coupons expire so soon. It's not like at the end of the expiration date they will no longer be offering 20% off coupons or the free flashlight. They've been doing those for years.

The ad business has become a science with customized ads and it appears each of you fit into a different demographic, gone are the days when hundreds of thousands of identical fliers are sent out hoping for the best.

Welcome to targeted marketing. It is based on your prior purchases.

I do not understand the purpose of the post. Reads like everything is happening exactly the way I would expect it to happen.

North Korea wants to nuke us, traitor's want to impeach our President, my gal wants me to renovate the attic,
my truck needs a new transmission, the dogs been snake bit again, and the Harbor Freight flyer is lining the cat box.
