BOGO Pet Peeve

Are you listening to me Payless?  Not that Payless is the only offender… but it’s what sparked me today. 

BOGO – stands for Buy On Get One – it means if you buy one, you get one free.  Doesn’t seem like a hard concept. 

So… the pet peeve comes into play since I see so many advertisers using BOGO to mean Buy One Get One Half Off.  Which is actually a BOGOHO.  I realize that BOGOHO doesn’t have the same ring… but at least it’s accurate.
