Lotteries are not a Financial Service

in Lottery Tickets, Spending

Just a quick one that I noticed, it seems our friends at Red Flag Deals (I do like checking there to see if something I need to buy is on sale) have become a little confused. Lotteries are not a financial service.

This week they are offering OLG: FREE Watch ‘N Win Lotto eCoupon, OK, I guess folks that play lotteries like freebies as much as the next person (note I have not made that an active link, you can go find it on the Red Flag Deals web site yourself (I am not in any way espousing you go buy lottery tickets)).

My Favorite Cash Cow

What worries me about this coupon, is where this coupon was came from.

Pardon me? When did a lottery become a Financial Service?!?!? Very bad form Red Flag Deals, create a new class like:

  • Stuff you are never going to get your money back from
  • Tax on the poor
  • Home -> Not a Deal -> Lottery

Any of those is better than Financial Services -> Other !

Wow! Lotteries are not a financial service, or a retirement plan! No matter what on-line coupon or deal companies think.
