This Is Broken

One of the advantages of working for a huge multinational corporation - if there are any - is that we get to partake of some often lucrative discounts with major retailers.

Like this one, with Office Depot. My kids' school has a financial partnership with them, where the school gets a portion of the profit on all items purchased there. So when I saw the discount program on our corporate intranet for Office Depot, I was excited.

The details on the program didn't indicate how much the discount was, so I checked their website while logged in under my company's id. Then I checked the website as an anonymous user, which would have no discounts visible.

I was rather puzzled to discover that every item I found was the same price in both views.

Except this pack of pencils. What's wrong with this picture?

That's some discount.

Check out for more of the same type of stuff.
