Amazon Promises 30 Percent Off Networking Promises, But When You Click You Find Way Bigger Discounts Than That

Every single day, Amazon offers a variety of deals that are only available for a 24-hour period. There is nothing particularly notable about this. What is notable, however, is how they market these deals. For example, one of their offerings today is “up to 30 percent off select TP-Link network products.” That’s a good deal! Especially considering the selection includes over a dozen options, including routers, modems, range extenders and more. What’s odd about it is that several of the products are actually over 30 percent off – in some cases, significantly so! Take a gander at some of these:

Obviously, 19 percent is less than 30 percent, but it still fits in with the “up to 30 percent” promise. Fifty-two percent? Fifty-seven percent? Not so much.
