It is interesting. I wonder if it is in part a rejection of the haggling that used to be common centuries ago (and I guess still is) in some places.

In the US, the concept of the good customer discount or frequent buyer discount is well established, though in PB’s case it’s more frequent buyer gets the worst offer, or at least the biggest.

I think in most places, the law here does prohibit charging anyone more than the posted or advertised price for an item, but does not restrict selling it for less.

I was glad to see the 260 offer wasn’t supposed to be included, so hopefully when it comes back, the folks with 260 will be seeing 350 or 550. (Does anyone still have their bank during this event or did all the pigs go away for the duration?)

Apart from the principle of objecting to getting the smaller offer, 350 gems for 2.99 is actually a way better offer than some of the discount bundle offers some of us have purchased in the past.

Yes, we have (what we call here) customer programs here as well, but those need to be registered.
