If it's about discounts, sure. If not, not so much, but e.g. some fast food ads you see outside can have stuff you might want to try. Beyond that, I don't remember buying much stuff because of ads, but it probably does happen every now and then. Of course I see a fairly limited amount of ads since I don't watch TV and I use adblock on the internet.
McD does this alot... and it works (atleast on me and my family, from personal experiance).
They often change up the formula, or now with a new x,y,z... and it does get you to go try it out.
