'Stimulus plan' the new buzzwords for sales

I went out to eat the other night at a chain restaurant and noticed a banner outside proclaiming its prices a "stimulus plan" for families looking for a bargain.

And just recently I received an e-mail from the Oakland A's for its "2 for 1 Stimulus Plan" where two seats cost as much as one if I buy season tickets for some seats. I looked at the seats available and while they're in the first deck, they're so far in the outfield that I might as well be sitting in the bleachers. I'll pass, even with the discount.
