At first I saw '20% Off iTunes Cards', then I read closer.... it's BOGO 20% off, which means it's really only 10% off.

I see more and more stores doing this type of deceptive advertising of BOGO this year. It's happened in the past, but not as frequently as this year.

When I see a store saying 'BOGO 50% off' instead of '25% off' it makes me think less of that store, and equate them with swindlers.
