An online ad for the UCLA campus sports apparel store that ties a 5- percent saving for every Bruins touchdown scored in the previous Saturday game at the Rose Bowl should have resulted in a huge payoff today.
Except for the fine print.
The Bruins racked up nine touchdowns in a surprising 66-10 win over Arizona. But that doesn’t compute to a 45-percent discount (please, check our math on that one).
The cutoff for the promotion is 5 TDs, it says here: “*Maximum discount is 25%. No other discounts apply. Not valid on textbooks, diploma frames, Limited Edition Merchandise, or UCLA Store gift cards. Subject to in-stock merchandise. Online offer valid 12:00am to 11:59 (PST) Monday following a home game.”
Officials at UCLA note this online promotion has been going on for several years, and anyone bringing a ticket stub to the UCLA store on the Monday after the game can receive the same 25 percent (maximum) discount.
