What's the Point of a Discount?
One of the suppliers we see at Pour Richard's (They'll be nameless-you'll see why) has the most peculiar pricing policy. There's the 'frontline', which almost nobody pays. Then there are assorted 'discounts', depending on the quantity purchased, but if you ask, sometimes you can get that price on less quantity. There are free goods deals: 1 free case on a 5 case purchase, etc. Lastly, there is the end-of-fiscal price: crazy stuff like 6 free bottles on 6 purchased bottles.
