I got this coupon in mail and have to say what sense does this make? I cannot think of a single reason to plaster an American flag, not just once but four times, on a coupon for carpet and air duct cleaning. The name of the company is Clear Choice so no connection there. Does Clear Choice really think using the flag on a coupon will make people will choose them to clean their air ducts because they are patriotic or real Americans? Does it actually work, subliminally, to steer a customer to their service? Or did they just find the image on a free graphics CD and throw it on to visually jazz up the coupon?

    Yes, four times might be a little excessive, but at least they are being patriotic. I’d take that any day over Christmas advertising with no reference to Christ.

    Does merely using the image of the flag make one patriotic?
