Dear Dr. Ads,
There’s a tradition of Veterans Day Sale ads that always struck me as kinda, well, cheap. But now there’s Veterans Day Ads 2.0, in which stuff gets given free to military vets.
Exhibit A: This full-page Starbucks ad from any number of newspapers.
Exhibit B: This Applebee’s full-page ad from ditto.
So is this good, Doc? Or just using vets to make money?
