It seems unlikely, but a 36-year-old coupon for 20 cents off of Crisco vegetable oil was honored recently by Anatoly Shashkin, the store manager at a North Shore Farms store in Mineola, Long Island, New York.
The coupon, issued by Proctor and Gamble in 1983, stated it had “no expiration date,” so Shashkin decided to accept it. The customer was able to save 20 cents off their purchase of Crisco oil.
In other strange news, 36 years ago they made coupons out of really long lasting paper. Good news for coupon savers from the year 1983, but that means mountains of trash are probably still around from that time. Perhaps the person kept the coupon in an ACME vacuum sealed coupon preserving chamber. I’m an optimist, in case you haven’t figured that out. 😉
