My local grocery store came up with a creative deal on 2007 Beaujolais Nouveau. Until last week it used to cost $9.99. This Monday there is a special deal on it. From a distance you see $10.89 on the sign underneath the bottles. At a closer look the sign says: regular price $13.89, with $3.00 coupon final price $10.89. There is a coupon hanging on the neck of the bottle (shown on the right in the picture above). This gets really interesting when you read what the text on coupon says: Save $3.00 instantly off turkey or ham with purchase of one bottle of GD Beaujolais-Villages.

It is a great deal? Not really. I need to buy a bottle of Beaujolais-Villages, some turkey or ham in order to get overcharged on a bottle of Beaujolais Nouveau.

I had to check it again today to see if I did not interpret it wrong yesterday.
This time I had my glasses with me and checked the numbers on the iPhone calculator to make sure my subtracting was correct.

I wish I had my glasses with me on Monday when actually I bought ham and two bottles of Beaujolais-Villages and used the coupon shown on the left in the picture above.

This experience prompted another idea for the iPhone – a magnifying glass. This would come in handy when glasses are not around. Simply, the iPhone camera needs to have zoom-in capability (coming soon?).


I already have a ruler on my iPhone.
This is not a joke. It really works.
