'Free purchases for a month.' What does that mean, free after the even, free when? What the hell are you trying to say?

The snow is free in Iowa. Sales increased during the hoiday season because it snowed. Next question please.

By mention of "refund" I assumed that if you bought something during the month preceding Christmas Eve and it snowed 2" or more on Christmas eve, that your purchase price was refunded. If the month was held after you knew it snowed 2" or more then their losses would of been much greater.
