This Is The Most Ridiculous Coupon We Have Ever Seen

Business Insider

We've seen some restriction-heavy coupons in the past, but this one from Guitar Center is, thus far, the worst of them all.

The Consumerist came across this marvel of a coupon, which starts off great, then deteriorates into near-uselessness.

The coupon offers $10 off purchases of $49, $30 off purchases of $199, and $150 off purchases of $750.

It has all the usual, reasonable restrictions: no clearance items, no used or vintage products, no gift cards, and more.

But then it says: “Some manufacturers have chosen not to participate in this promotion,” and links you to another page.
