am I missing something here?

I have just watched an advert for Quick Fit tyres.

"Buy 4 get 25% off, Buy 2 get 15% off."

The more you buy the bigger the discount

  Forum Editor 08:59 13 Jul 2008

you effectively pay for three, but if you buy two you only get 15% discount. It's an inducement to get you to replace all your tyres in one go, or at least to replace two when you might only want one.

What might you be missing?

by having 12 extra spare wheels between 6 cars... it saves ma a lot:)

EG: @£20 a tyre - this offer,
Buy 4 tyres and pay £15 each.
Buy 2 tyres and pay £17 each.
So bulk buying is cheaper. Normal commerce I believe.

I think it's the fact of four tyres and a 25% discount that may be confusing him.... 25% being one fourth.

Perhaps they should have worded better, as the FE did. "buy four, just pay for three"

or as a supermarket would:

"33% extra free" or "Buy 3, get 1 free"

Does this mean I can buy 2x2 and get 30% off?

Missing a few Grey cells in working order, my maths are still as bad as when I was at school:-(

I'll slink off now.

"Buy 4 get 25% off, Buy 2 get 15% off."
Consider abandoning the named brands, shop around, you could be very surprised how much you can actually save.

  GRIDD 09:51 13 Jul 2008

Perhaps but you'd be worse off for it.

I still say that our local independent tyre and exhaust centre, can and will match Kwik Fit prices and service. And you don't need to buy 2 or more for a promotion offer.
