    I know what ya mean. There's no way in sam-hell you can save money by spending! It's all addition and subtraction at its base.

    Those are mere slogans.

    from Wikipedia:

    A meme (/miːm/ MEEM[1][2][3]) is an idea, behavior, or style that spreads from person to person within a culture—often with the aim of conveying a particular phenomenon, theme, or meaning represented by the meme.[4] A meme acts as a unit for carrying cultural ideas, symbols, or practices, that can be transmitted from one mind to another through writing, speech, gestures, rituals, or other imitable phenomena with a mimicked theme. Supporters of the concept regard memes as cultural analogues to genes in that they self-replicate, mutate, and respond to selective pressures.[5]

    That is exactly what they want the phrase 'look how much you save' to accomplish, brainwashing the population into not realizing exactly how much they are actually spending, so the buyer becomes an automaton. Insert card, buy the absolute crap they come up with these days that will die inside of a year. Example, cell phone chargers and cell phone charger cables. Have you ever seen such absolute crap coming out of China or Indonesia, where ever that junk is made? We have a collection of the damn worthless things now. That and the old 8 track tape players, remember THAT debacle? But hey, we saved 20 bucks.....
