Cherry-picking is a common term here in NYC. A store offers a "loss leader"
i.e., something they lose money on just to lure the customer into the store,
so a common expression is "I went cherry-picking along Broadway today." i.e.,
I went into all the stores and bought their loss-lead stuff, but didn't buy
anything else.
