New Math

After church last Sunday, Laura stood around talking with a few of her girlfriends. The pews are narrow and I was boxed into the conversation. While I managed to tune out the details, I caught the gist.

June: Express has a sale on where you can buy a $25 giftcard for $20, so we both bought two.

Chelsea: And Starbucks has a promotion where if you set up auto-recharge on your card they give you $10 when you put in your first $15.

Laura: That’s awesome. It sounds like you both saved a lot!

Me: Saved a lot?!? Laura, we’ve got to go!

June: To Express and Starbucks to get in on these deals?

Me: (Smile and nod.)
