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