Each paid adult admission to JagFest '99 will include a coupon for up to $3 off a single item purchase from the Songbird Productions table. A variety of factory-new 2600 and 7800 games will be available for under $3, as well as a number of current and new games for the Jaguar and Lynx and other Atari merchandise at normal retail prices. Simply present your coupon at the Songbird Productions table, and you can walk away with a free 2600 or 7800 game, or use the coupon to get a discount off of other merchandise. *
