Does this word attract you or have a magnetic pull on you or makes you buy it? When go out for shopping groceries or any other essentials, I see many people gathered around products which have these tags. But personally, I feel, its all a marketing stratergy, without no financial impliactions to the manufacturer. For example: There was a offer of 4 soaps at the cost of three. On closer examination, I found that if one buys separately he would have bought each soap of 100gms, but in this offer he had reduced the weight to 75 grams. I educated some around me, but yet they preferred buying the same FREE FREE FREE offer. What do you have to say?
