    I have a gripe about the ebay deals. I'm getting fed up with getting emails or going to the site and seeing these "20% off" badges on images then when you get to the item discovering it's not actually 20% off. A couple problems just today;

    1. The email says "20% off storewide". Looks awesome at first glance. Then I realize it's only for Computer Alliance. Which is still not bad. However, when I go to the Computer Alliance Ebay store there is no indication that stuff is actually 20% off. Some things appear to be 10% off but that's it.

    2. Stuff that's 20% off but the deal has already expired. There are tons of items showing pictures with the 20% off badge on them but the deal expired last week. When you actually get there it's not offering a discount at all. This differs from point 1 because it had no expiry date mentioned. These ones if you check closely you can at least see an expiry date.

    3. Stuff that's 22% off, but apparently the shop considers their items to already be 12% off so you're actually only getting 10% off the ticket price at the checkout... just like every other shop on ebay is offering.

    I'm not sure how much of the problem is shops just being slow updating their product images and how much is deliberately being misleading to get customer attention and hopefully jag the sale anyway (bait and switch). I feel like ebay needs to crack down on this sort of dodgy behaviour. Because you get customers going to a shop thinking it'll be a low price when it reality it's actually quite a bit higher.
