A flyer (or flier) is usually a small piece of printed card with a promotion printed upon it. The name flyer is derived from the propeganda dropped from aircraft during the American revolution. The very first instance of this tactic being used was intended by the British to demoralise the American troops by giving them paper cuts. The fliers used were coupons for a 1d saving on 1Kg of Earl Grey at Twinings of London.
