Above is a card announcing an exclusive event to promote the condominiums at The Harrison.Â The card is being mailed by Martin Goldstine Knapke to prospective buyers.Â Everyone that attends will have a chance to win a 42″ flat screen TV as well as up to 5% off the purchase of a condo.Â The fine print, however, reads that you have to purchase a condo to win the prize.Â I’m wondering if this isn’t a misprint.Â Perhaps the asterisk should only have appeared on the 5% off part of the sentence rather than both places as printed.Â Either way, hmmmm, spend $149,000 to $349,000 (not including the financing charges) and possibly receive a 42″ flat screen TV?Â Personally, I think most people that could afford this kind of spending probably already have 3 or 4 flat screens already.Â Here’s a thought: win the flat screen tv and give it someone who doesn’t have one – like me!Â Five percent off the purchase price, $7,450 up to $17,450, mightÂ be an enticement to some because now you’re talking real money.Â And what’s up withÂ that, “up to 5% off…” statement?Â Sounds pretty arbitrary to me.Â I wish them well with the promotion, but I don’t think this is going to be enough.
Thanks to Mitch Harper for the scan.Â
