Stella Artois: Coupons

Stella Artois is all about quality. And promotions are usually about price. When these two contradicting thoughts were put together, the answer is almost too obvious: "pay more" coupons from Stella Artois. Authentic-looking Stella Artois coupons were run in cheap neighbourhood discount newspapers. But with one difference: the Stella Artois coupon is the only one offering the consumer to pay "more" instead of "less." Because Stella Artois is worth it.

Its simplicity is its brilliance. How clever.

These are some of my favorite this year as far as the idea. But this misses the target audience by much further than a mile. If I am reading a local pub for a ten cent discount on milk, would I care about Stella Artois?

Still, an absolute gem.

These ads are great and they don't miss the target.

There is nothing new about selling the ‘idea’ of paying more because the product is worth it.
One of the oldest tricks in the book, if you will.

Good idea although I don’t believe the execution will produce the saturation desired.

Stella always has this attitude. They always say their beer is expensive...it's worth it.
To me, this coupon thing is really great. I love it. :-)

should miss the target at all.
i don't think a male Stella Artois drinker will have interest in coupons on newspapers.
