STP: Free Shipping, A Little Effort

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Free shipping at Sierra Trading Post! You just need to answer the riddle that is hidden in the product description of a random item in their catalog(Get on the mailing list!) I'll try and post the latest riddle in this thread, I'll leave it up to you to post the correct answer. I just made an order online and put the Q and A in the "comments" box during the order process. They email you if you have the right answer and credit the shipping cost(and they thank you for it!). "Congratulations! Your answer to our hidden riddle is correct! As promised, we have credited your surface shipping costs on order #XXXXXXXX, bringing your new total to $27.85. Thanks for shopping with us. We appreciate your business." I saved $6, money for a sixer or half a slope-side lunch. Get on it , Bears

I would have said Mr. Ed.

I also heard that STP doesn't need this kind of riddle when it comes to shipping.

Marketing 101, if nobody reads your catalog then it is a waste of money. I know a couple of pepole that it is a game, first to find question and first to find the answer. They may not otherwise look at the catlog, but since they are searching for the question they may see someting that interests them. Also most people do not know about this.

And the Indiana school founded in 1875 is Indiana University if Pennsylvania Indians.
