    Thrifty – Victoria’s Secret know that some people will shop and some won’t, but they are willing to take that risk. Redeem the coupon guilt free!

    I’d say neither thrifty nor stingy–but definitely unethical.

  3. I agree with the first comment. They take the risk.

    I think unethical is a bit harsh. She’s not getting one over on them, they sent her the coupon and it didn’t state that she had to buy something to get it. I recently got a free coupon in the newspaper for a brand new soft drink. I went to the store and got the soft drink free, and bought nothing else. I don’t think that’s “unethical”. Unethical would be to buy something, use it, then return it because you didn’t want to pay for it. If they don’t want to risk her using just the one coupon, they wouldn’t give it to her in the first place. Or they would make it bogo, or with $20 purchase, something of that nature…

    Thrifty. Great self-control!

    I don’t think it’s unethical at all! It is a business decision for them to send out the coupon for the free underwear, knowing that a certain percentage of their clientele will use the coupon and spend no money at the store. I’m sure an accountant or an actuary has calculated the odds. Probably the next person in the store was someone who was bad at math, who spent $100 thinking they were getting a great deal.

    Pffft! In what way is it unethical? It is a marketing tactic on behalf of the company, which is betting that a larger percentage will spend the $75 than the percentage who will choose not to. If they were losing money on that deal, believe me, they would not do it.

    Definitely thrifty! Nothing unethical about it. Wish I’d get a coupon like that.
