UP TO 75% OFF!!!!

I reckon I'd struggle a bit to ever reach "More than a million miles per hour", but I reach speeds of "Up to 6 million miles per hour" every day without breaking a sweat.

Tip - Whenever you see it, always substitute the phrase "up to" with "less than". It means the same and you're far less likely to emerge from the New Year sales with heaps of unwanted and overpriced tat.
