This might be legal and would resolve the problem facing Tampa’s J.C. Newman Cigar Co. and other cigar manufacturers.

Cigars, according to the new law, must sell for over $10 each to be exempt from this statute. They should sell the $5 cigars for $11, and then give the buyer an immediate bonus discount coupon for $6.

The buyer gets two cigars, and using the coupon special, the cigars are now $5 each.

This is like a buy-one, get-one special that restaurants use regularly.

Problem resolved.
