What glitch made you have something you didn't pay for.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I just got upgraded to win 10 Enterprise when I only paid for an upgrade to win 10 pro at the Microsoft store. So that made me think, have you made a purchase (or not), and got something that was supposed to be off-limits at the price you paid for. Ex, getting extra months on a membership, my windows ex, etc. You got something that you didn't pay for but is still better than what you did. The only rule is that it needs to be unintentional. No making new emails to get new trials for Netflix. What is your story?

I bought a PS4 online and it came in a PS4+Fifa18 bundle box. The box had a big sticker on it that said: "No game inside".

The game was still in the box.

There was this vending machine in high school that dispensed drinks, particularly ICY Tea. It ate my money one day so I got mad and punched it. A whole 1 USD in quarters fell out so I ended up getting my drink anyway. Later I learned that if you hit the machine in the right spot, money would come out of the change slot. So I never paid for drinks past the first 3 weeks of school. As far as I know, that machine is still there to this day.

AC 3. I spent a whole week unfogging every bit of frontier and New York, Boston and even the underground as YONG fucking connar , then met achilles to finally start my training with peace that i have dont all side missions and cleared all map at Sq 3 even before becoming Connor.

then it happened, when i met achilles. there was no FUCKING MUSIC, only dialogue and sound effects but no music, the only way to fix is was to start a new Save. A NEW FUCKING SAVE after i spent a whole week doing all the chores for nothing. 

my 2nd playthrough, used fast travel for everything. fuck it.

I brought a set of drawers from a second hand shop and found $400 in cash under the lining.

Not sure how this happened, but back in 2016 my phone provider was busy upgrading their data plans. What started out as a 5GB plan got upped to 6GB (intended) and then as a promotional thing for a weekend was doubled to 12GB (also intended).

 

Apparently they forgot to switch this off and when their 12GB plan was dropped a month or so after that in favour of a 20GB plan, I was lucky enough to upgrade to that.

Last year i ordered an EVGA 750B3 PSU only because it was modular and decently priced.

Turns out it was the only one the store had available at the time and somebody managed to drop damage it pretty badly before packaging, so i was upgraded to a Thermaltake Toughpower Grand Gold 650W unit.

I ordered a 4GB DDR3-1666 stick of HyperX Fury and it arrived, except I found out too late that it wasn't compatible with my old PC.

A few days later, and a second stick of memory arrived that I didn't pay for, and that's another DDR3 module that I can't use due to my old PC not being compatible with it, yay.

Placed an order for some switches, ended up with an extra couple that had no order attached to them.

One is now at my house :D

Given the number of delivery issues I've had with them (not Amazon's fault, but shitty delivery drivers) where packages have been dumped outside the house or thrown around the back... When my account is clearly marked as this not being acceptable and a neighbour will always take them in (stuff has been stolen in the past).

 

So every time it happens... especially if they leave stuff outside when I'm away. As soon as I see the notification that it's been left outside instead of with my neighbour... I complain. I point out that stuff has been stolen in the past and they have clear instructions not to do that ever again... and most of the time they immediately refund... Occasionally when I get home that evening or the following day... it's still there, some times it's not.

 

If they did what they were supposed too... I wouldn't have to complain... I think the message is starting to get through to the delivery drivers... as it's not happened in about a month or so now.

I one time ordered a new old stock MSI 990FXa Motherboard from Ebay. I have a long handicap ramp leading up to my porch, which has a roof over it. The asshat driver (USPS) left it at the bottom of the ramp in the pouring down rain. I complained to USPS but didn't get a refund or anything of the sort. Thankfully the board still worked (and still works to this day). But I heard later on through the "grape vine" that driver had been fired (not just for doing that either). Haven't had many issues since.

The only glitch I recall is the Apple Store one where if you had pre-App store versions of certain apps, the app store added them automatically to your account. This included trial versions. As I had previous versions of the software from an earlier mac, those got installed at some point and then automatically upgraded forward.

Oblivion. If you're on a horse, you can't sell your equipped weapon and, since I'm a mage-type, I went to sell my weapons and found that the merchant outside of Kvatch can't take your equipped weapon...

 

It was a nice day of destroying economies.

Once my father went to this small town with a gigantic river where lots of people would go for gold panning and he also bought some old furniture, it was an old desk made of this rare hard wood and later on hidden inside one of the drawers we also discovered a gold nugget.

 

Personally I bought a G.Skill 16GB (2x8GB) Trident Z 3200mhz CL16 kit second hand for like 20 dollars from someone because it was dead, went through the Lifetime warranty deal with G.Skill... took me a solid month (because sent it to the US from Braizl) but eventually I got back for free the brand-new replacement.
