App Store Sale Price - Bait and Switch?

For the past few days there has been a promo on the App World store (when viewed from my PlayBook) that says "3 FREE GAMES AND 9 MORE AT 50% OFF!".


I clicked on this and saw Plants vs. Zombies for 50% off... regularly $4.99 on for $2.99. I clicked on it and I am shown the Plants vs. Zombies page where the price is listed for $4.99. I then go back to the "Featured" apps and click on the promotion again. Again I see Plants vs. Zombies for $2.99. I click on it and this time the page shows the correct sale price of $2.99. Great. I click purchase and the confirmation page for the final sale says $4.99.


What's up with that? Why is the price flipping back and forth? Am I not eligible for this sale? If so, then why is it being advertised to me? I am located in Cambridge, Ontario, Canada... not far from the RIM head office.

Re: App Store Sale Price - Bait and Switch?

App World caches an app's price for a week. Maybe that explains it.


And a price change takes about a day to take effect, trickling through.
