Product Attachments vs. Files

In the 2.0 admin, what is the difference between attachments and files on the product details page? I understand that files are used for electronic delivery of a purchased product, but attachments has me stumped.

Also, I want to sell coupons that can be used for 50% at participating retailers. I’d like to customers download and print this coupon, but I don’t want them to download or print multiple copies. Anyone handled something like that before?

Attachments are just things you want to make available without purchase. For instance, if you sell a consumer electronics component, you might make the manual available for anyone interested.
