Ok, maybe this has been answered elsewhere. If so, forgive me and gently point me to the right source
Why is it on the bottom of coupons, you always see that fine print reading “Actual Cash Value 1/100th of one cent” or words to that effect. I understand that it means that you can’t take a 20¢ coupon and go to the store demanding 20¢ for it, but can you take 100 of them and demand a penny? This is hypothetical of course, as I have better things to do. Is there some formula for how much a coupon is “worth”? I noticed that my can of Coke which is good for $10 off admission to Six Flags has a cash value of 1/20th of one cent, so does the “value” of the coupon increase by how much the coupon is good for?
