    I think it means if you spend $10 then the otherwise $5 parking is free.

    I`ve seen worse. My local city centre is plastered with dozens of large (~7 feet high) adverts pushing a FREE smartphone with apps for £20 a month.

    "I`ve seen worse. My local city centre is plastered with dozens of large (~7 feet high) adverts pushing a FREE smartphone with apps for £20 a month."

    That`s not at all worse. You`re not paying for the phone, you`re paying for minutes, texts and apps. It`s called a contract...

    It`s not free if you have to pay £20 a month for it. The ad explicitly stated that it was a free phone for £20 a month. Which clearly contradicts itself.

    You can use "free" with anything nowadays. "300 Free Texts a month for just £10" etc.

    if you actually read the sign, it says with $10 purchase. It`s not difficult to work out, it`s free if you spend $10. Otherwise it`s $5

    I think what it`s saying is when you spend $10, you get $5 worth of parking for free. So maybe you get like 2 hours or something, i don`t know how much they charge for parking in the US.

    Nothing is `free` you end up paying for it one way or the other.

    This reminds me of a Fonejacker character who (supposedly) works in a India-based call centre selling "Internet Providings" and a dating service.

    Not much different than getting your parking validated by a merchant, its just worded differently is all.

    Free parking is $5 with purchase of $10?

    So it`s really $15 for free parking?

    im guessing you have to pay for the amount of time and with the a 10 dollar purchase you get 5 dollars off your parking.

    I would show up with a semi tractor trailer truck and park it right in the middle then blast that stupid sign with a shotgun and pee on the store.

    i think its just a misplaced modifier to blame
    i think they meant the deal is valued at five dollars, and is going to be free with the $10 purchase, just a thought *shrug*

    Angilion,

    The phone ITSELF is free, meaning you don`t have to pay the amount the phone is worth just to own the phone. USING the phone, on the other hand, is what they`re charging for, which from what you posted the ad even says. It`s not contradicting itself at all.

    I`ve actually got to agree with Angilion. "Free" would imply that you can have the phone without regard to a contract. By requiring you to have a contract in order to get the "free" phone, it ceases to be free as there is a requirement. If you want the phone without the contract it will cost you money. "No additional charge for phone with signed contract" would be accurate.
