I was reviewing an advertisement promoting a home basketball game and a home gymnastics meet. The ad stated fans could “pick up free admission coupons” at car dealership locations “while supplies last.”
I like the fact they created a sense of urgency with “while supplies last,” but recommend college athletics programs never advertise “free” tickets to their sporting events, especially when a team (such as this one) is ranked in the top five nationally.
A better way to word this ad would be stating “a limited number of complimentary tickets,” courtesy of the car dealer, “are available while supplies last.”
