It is not a “language” thing, it is a “it doesn’t matter what the sign says, we sell cheap crap” thing.

I don’t know. Technically this seems right. I think they mean everything is either 99 cents or less than 99 cents, in the total range leading back up to 99 cents?

Ok nevermind forget it

This is logically equivalent to “switching to GEICO could save 15% or more on car insurance”. Both are null statements.

We truly need to bring logic back as a compulsory college course.
