Resistible Savings

Here's an amusing post I encountered over at, while looking for a cheap headset. At first glance, I was glad to see it was selling for less than the list price, but then I noticed exactly how much was being saved. I'm not sure whether this is a mistake, now that I think about it. I can see why it would be beneficial to show that all their items have savings applied, regardless of the amount. After all, it made me react positively, that is, until I noticed the amount saved. Either way, it appears the Americans get a better deal... blame Canada?

Still, you see glimmers of confusion every now and then.
