* The flip side of "Save hundreds a year!" When the advertised product ''costs'' money, the sum is divided into the smallest possible units, even when it cannot be paid for that way. (Pennies a day, billed monthly.) When the product ''saves'' money, the sum is totaled for an entire year-- again, even when the payment cannot be annual. (Save hundreds a year on your monthly bill.)
