Abstract

See full text

A system for redeeming discount offer flyers which are mailed, handed or otherwise distributed to potential customers, provides identifying indicia on the offer flyer/circulars which is used by a point of sale machine to identify items which are offered at a discount and then apply an appropriate credit to the purchased items. The system further resides in a method of tracking purchasing habits of individuals who receive and use the discount offer flyer by creating a data base file identified by the user name or residence address for items so purchased with the flyer/circular program.
