    Ever get those coupon books for a free drink or discounted burgers for your favorite fast food restaurant? Here's how to make them go a lonnng way.

    At the drive-thru when you order, tell them you have a coupon for a Free Drink or $2 burger (or whatever it is). When you get to the window to pay, DO NOT HAND THEM THE COUPON IF THEY DON'T ASK FOR IT. Have it ready just in case, but I've reused a Free 32-ounce drink coupon and a $2 burger coupon many, many, many, many, many, many times.

    Most fast-food restaurants have two windows, or the person who rings you up is not always the person that takes your money, so they forget to ask for it. Hey, let their stupidity pay off for you.

    Um... having a huge sugar water and a grease bomb many, many times, is not going to pay off in the way most guys want.

    But probably the restaurant doesn't care. Sometimes the purpose of the coupon is just to track where you saw the advertisement, so they know how their campaigns are working.

    I still sometimes get people using old obsolete coupons for my mail-order business. Usually from thousands of miles away from where I actually issued them. (WTF?) They think they're pulling a fast one, but the cost to me is still less than or equal to the cost per sale of new advertising.

    So everyone gets to gloat a little.
