while you're right about the gimmick, you need to learn math better
if something is $20 and they add 60% that makes it $32
if they mark it down 40%, that makes it $19.20 for a 1.05% DISCOUNT not 20% higher than reg price
but like i said...you're right about the gimmick...you end up paying just about reg price on all that junk anyway.
any good deals at compusa are through rebates and who wants to deal with that?
