What would you do to get a lifetime discount at your favorite store? Would you, say, get an animal tattoo? That's what Ecko is hoping—the company's new Branded for Life program promises a 20% discount-for-life to any customer who gets either the brand's Rhino logo or the Marc Ecko Cut & Sew shears tatted on their bodies.
Um. 20%? Seriously?
Eh. Different strokes for different folks, we guess. Us, maybe we'd get a tattoo for a lifelong 50%-off discount on, like, Ann Demeulemeester or something.
