Bogus Coupons

It is standard practice for corporations to offer some premium or rebate to entice you to buy, then make the process of obtaining the goody too onerous to bother. Companies such as Symantec and Post Honeycomb Cereal go even further, simply refusing to honour the deal. This practice might marginally increase the odds of the sale, but guarantees no sales ever after. Why are companies deliberately shooting themselves in the foot?
