Memorising product codes to check if you can get a better deal online


Hi All,

I was buying runners 'trainers' a few months ago. I saw a pair I liked so I looked under the tongue and quickly memorised the product code using the major system. I then checked it on my phone over a coffee and found that I could get them cheaper elsewhere. This was mnemonics in action as it would have been quite rude to look up prices on my phone with the runner in my hand.

I only glanced at the product code but I can still remember it as it was an interesting turn of phrase that the major system spat out.

The code started with the letter J so I used the word jesus for that. Then the letters for the rest of the code read LoVeS KoSHeR

so I remembered the product code as Jesus Loves Kosher

weird huh!
