I normally don’t care about coupons, but admittedly I have succumbed to a certain type of deals myself: When purchasing at CDON for a high enough value I can buy movies etc at a lower price. Stuff that I would otherwise not buy, so I guess I’m not completely unaffected by deals. It’s excellent for CDON, as they get more revenue per time unit and customer, and that’s all that matters to a distributor.
I’m sure we’ll see more of “You probably will also like this.” and even “One of your friends bought this. Why don’t you?”.
