Another thing I hate is being fucking blatantly ripped off by lying cheating scum. Valve and their Steam offering are a good example.

Steam are always having sales. You can bet your little ass that the second you buy something, it’ll be offered 50% off. And if you buy it when it’s 50% off, next day it’ll be 75% off.

Yeah, it fucks me off, but ultimately, that’s life and that’s their choice on how to treat their customers. I just wouldn’t necessarily advise it if you want to keep those customers.

But what really *IS* a step too far, though, is explicitly stating that product (A) will be on sale until date (B) at price (C), and then three days before sale end date (B), reducing the price (C) of product (A), while still advertising it to be the same offer.

Ok, it’s a matter of a few pounds, but still, fuck you. You fucking fucks. If I don’t get a credit for the difference I’m going to (1) never buy anything from you again and (2) be sheer bloody minded and report you to Trading Standards, because I know you totally wont give a fuck about (1) . That and I obviously don’t stand a chance of a refund. I’m fairly sure that there are laws you have to abide by which are designed to prevent you from lying about what you are offering. You offered the product at that price for that period. Which was a lie.

Whether it breaks the law or not, it’s a fucking shitty thing to do, and you’re cunts.
