Lay's was a second mover when it introduced its potato chips to rapidly evolving post-communist Hungary. By inserting cash into its potato chip bags, Lay's increased sales dramatically and permanently (i.e., also post-promotion). In contrast, after withdrawing a second "Money in the Bag" promotion, sales fell. Students prepare case A (5 pages) at home.
