Only MBAM Pro was at the so called 70% off. All other select software was 10% off. The two discounts were separate and not combinable.
What's curious is MBAM's website is now showing the Pro version to be $25. It used to be $50.
The resulting $15 from 70% off $50 is still a good deal although the deceptive way NewEgg presents it makes it look like a much better bargain than it really is.
NewEgg has been doing a lot of deceptive things lately, such as yoyo pricing. One that really bites my ample asset (besides tall dogs) are the "sales" that have promo codes good for, say, 48 hours or when available funds run out
. Those funds run out quickly, sometimes in as little as a few short hours; four hours is the shortest I've seen (it could have been less but it was four hours after my inbox got the email when I tired to order something and the sale was already over even though it was supposedly good for 48 hours; the funds had already run out).
With the way Newegg's customer service has been slipping, the pricing games it's been playing, the constant stockouts, discontinued items (which often get restocked), etc., I'm thinking NewEgg is either already in serious finanacial trouble or they got a new CEO who will get them into serious financial trouble before long.
