Question by hot dude: Is your local mervyn’s on sale now? if so, what kind of items? how much are the discounts? ;)?

The second and third answers are really good. too bad, I went to the store before I read your answers, I was quite disappointed. They sell a pair of hanes underwear for $ 6.25 if i remembered the exact price! isn’t that ridiculous? i can buy two pairs at walmart.

As of a few weeks ago, Mervyn’s is closing forever… I’m guessing if there are open ones near you, they would have DEEP discounts right now.

What is a fair cost per unit to advertisers in a coupon mail out campaign?

Question by Willaim Mann: What is a fair cost per unit to advertisers in a coupon mail out campaign?
I am looking at doing a fund raiser coupon book in my area and just curious what is a fair price to ask from advertisers, we will probably be mailing out 5000 or so coupon books, but I want to make sure I am not trying to ask for too much $ $ $ and also not way to little. But I do wnat to be the best “deal” in the area compared to other mail out coupon packages.

Answer by Dion J
Triple your costs (printing and postage) and divide that number by the maximum number of POTENTIAL advertisers, based on available space.
The going rate for magazine-format mailers is 2 cents per home, and 4 cents per home for stuffed envelope mailers.
If you are doing black and white, you need to charge much less.
You need to find out how much your competition is charging.

How do I get a good lawyer to deal with local social security office?

Question by smoothsoullady: How do I get a good lawyer to deal with local social security office?
Boy, you wouldn’t believe what’s going on in that office! I just want to get a good lawyer to deal with it.

I have almost no money. The office itself is supposed to provide info on how to get a lawyer from their own office and not have to pay, but they are not!

I only have S.S.I., not S.S.D., so this is very important to me. Thank you.

Best answer:

Answer by googie
Call the office of your local representative in Congress and tell them the problem. Then do the same for the office of your Senators. Why fool around with a lawyer until you have exhausted there resources.
