In this Ally Bank commercial one girl is given a toy pony. She seems perfectly happy with the toy until the other girl gets a real pony! The first girl asks why she didn't get a real pony and the man in the suit responds, "You didn't ask." The narrator then comes on and says, "Even kids know it is not right to hold out on someone." This commercial shows how many companies use price discrimination by satisfying some customers with small incentives but giving other customers better deals. Ally Bank then promises that they will track your accounts and automatically give you a better rate if your qualify for it rather than requiring you to ask for the better deal. This is a wonderful lead in for the topic of price discrimination.
