actually I solved my conflict. Buy this now, use it later, still have funds for a mechanical keyboard.

Might be smart anyways seeing as how black friday and the holiday season are coming.

This coupon makes no sense. You are getting a $50 discount in the end so why don't they just give you the 50 off in the first place? Dumb marketing. They just want to get money from you to make them feel better? Anyway, I think their CFO need to go retake his econ 101 class.

You are not actually getting a $100 discount. Am I the only one that gets this?

?

I don't think it says "$100 discount" anywhere, it is $50 for $100 of buying power--i.e. $50 discount.

I would disagree about the CFO being dumb, he's basically locking a bunch of people in to purchasing solely from them since they invested in a $100 coupon. What if a bunch of people buy them, then use them at a later date and by said date they have temporarily raised margins enough to make up for coupon (or the margins are already high enough). It just brings them recognition as a brand and guarantees a bunch of people will buy this coupon and use them (or buy it and never use it, pure profit!).

Either way--thanks op!

It makes plenty of sense. Your post is the one lacking it. First off it's apparent to anyone using it that it's $50 off not a hundred dollars off. I was already going to buy a mixamp as it is so now I'm able to save $50 and knowing that the coupon wont expire until the end of January I'm able to wait for sale prices or price drops as well.

and as usmcz said I'm now just about locked into buying a mixamp or something from Astro since I've basically already payed $50. In conclusion it makes great business sense.

I'm also not sure you realize that the site that has the deal is not an Astro gaming website, but a separate website that focuses on gaming deals. Much like livingsocial or groupon. Just as they have their $10 for $30 (etc) amazon deals, this site has this astro deal.
