    I'm sure it built brand loyalty. Kids have a lot of say when it comes down to what brands mom puts in the shopping cart.
    As a kid, I can remember asking her to buy certain items becasue of the premiums offered.

    Too bad there isn't more of that today when I buy Studebaker parts (Do I buy a part form A or B?...but B gives me a free T shirt...).

      In the early 40's you could buy a box of cracker Jacks with a metal toy inside for a nickel, a post card was a penny. a package of 5 carmels for one penny. no tax. a heavy duty engine lathe for $100. dollars. . Regulations, wages, material costs, insurance, taxes, utilities, These items were very, very reasonable or non existent. Just a few example of how they could do that for a dime
