Anyone had bought a item and got a weird bonus?

Recommended Posts

There's a company I buy from here in the UK (can't ever remember which, think it's overclockers) that always send a small pack of Haribo sweets in package. First time I thought it was some poisoned stuff lol

I bought a game from amazon marketplace, I think it was Final Fantasy XIII for PS3 and it came with a magazine about Japanese videogames, manga, anime etc. This is of course fitting and it was a legit magazine some people pay money for, not advertisement crap. But what really caught me off guard was the reviews of hentai that were included. Not that I'm particularly sensitive, but it just didn't expect it, given that I only ordered a 12+ rated game.

I bought a GTX 970 from Nvidia and got a free copy of Arkham Knight, which oddly doesn't run.

That's not a weird bonus. That was part of their promotion.

it's a well known issue that the PC version of BM:AK is broken. I bought it and get all sorts of crashes. Rocksteady are having to spend a lot of time fixing it, and afaik, it has been pulled from retail until it is fixed

When I bought the boxed version of Presonus Studio One Professional (music production software) it came with a recipe with instructions on how to cook some traditional Brazilian meal.

The funny thing is the actual food recipe was provided by Presonus themselves and not some food company they were co-operaring with or whatever.

I might still have it around somewhere.

I bought a Plextor M6 Pro SSD and got a free pouch and a USB to Sata + Power as the guy was so surprised that I was paying for it myself and not getting my parents to.

 

TIL: The average person in Singapore gets their parents to buy them things. Someone was impressed I paid for it myself
