You can’t make this stuff up. Overstock.com had the brilliant idea of having a “White Sale” and sending out an add on MLK’s Birthday with that title!
This offer applies to the lower 48 states and APO/FPO destinations only. This offer excludes orders from “Auctions.” This promotion cannot be combined with any other offer or coupon. Offer ends January 17, 2006 @ 11:59 PM MST.
They also discriminate against 2 states, and exclude Auctions! Yup, there’s some extra irony for you.
You’d think marketing people would look at a calendar before doing stuff like this, it’s not like it’s an obscure thing that only a handful of people know about. Just ask a banker, or the mail man ;-).
This is about as stupid as celebrating Memorial Day with a sale. Since there’s no better way to salute those who died for your country, then by getting 10% off a new shirt!
This isn’t worth anyone getting their panties in a bunch, but it is rather silly of them.
