Amazon in false advertising shocker!

I must've missed some checkbox that I was meant to untick last time I bought from Amazon, given the amount of e-mails they've been sending my way.

Not that I'm bothered by it, as I've been mildly interested in everything they've been pimping to me thus far (since I'm still trying to justify buying a Blu-Ray player Playstation 3).

Just now, that mild interest turned to serious intrigue when I saw the subject heading for today's e-mail:

2 for 1? The porn-baiting may have failed, but this is something I'll probably avail of! Or so I thought, but of course, once I clicked into the message, the actual offer wasn't anywhere near as impressive as it initially seemed:

"Buy 2, Get 1 free", meaning that the subject ought to have been "3-for-2 Blu-ray Sale". Fail.
