Virgin - you tart.
I had a phone call from Virgin Media, about "substantial discounts" on my TV package.

Tell me more, I said.

They offered me a free HD box and a free TiVo box giving me extra channels and the chance to record them.

How much will it cost me, I asked.

"Usually £12 per month but for you only £9 per month."

If it's costing more than my current package, it's not a saving then, is it, I said. And hung up.

I'm sure there's many strategic marketing initiatives scuppered by a poorly thought out call centre scripts.

Marketing and sales certainly serve different functions, but often waste their efforts if they're not in good alignment.
