Adam send your kids to college in ColecoVision / Adam Posted May 9 · Edited May 9 by mozartpc27 Additional info Interesting. What was the upper age that someone could redeem the offer, anyone know? Like, did the parents of any 17 year olds who were about to graduate buy the computer and get the scholarship? I figure the only way it could work financially (had Coleco made it) would be that they were counting on putting $X amount money per kid or expected kid in some kind of interest-bearing account, much less than Y kids time $500, and so they could make an offer that would cost them nothing today, that had a value of $500 to a parent on paper, but would require them to place $350 in an account for a kid who was 13 assuming a 7% interest rate (not unreasonable at the time) compounded monthly over 5 years. It would be a liability but would also count as cash on hand for accounting purposes.
