Fun with e-commerce

WEBSITE: BUY ONE GET ONE HALF OFF SALE! 
ME: Cool! I need this thing and this thing! 
WEBSITE : OKAY! MOST EXPENSIVE THING FULL PRICE, NEXT THING HALF OFF! 
ME: Sounds good! And what the heck, I'll add this $3 thing because it's on clearance. 
WEBSITE: OKAY! FULL PRICE FOR TWO MOST EXPENSIVE THINGS, $3 THING HALF OFF! 
ME: Uh...okay, what if I add another $3 thing? 
WEBSITE: FULL PRICE ON ALL THINGS EXCEPT THE ONE $3 THING AT HALF-OFF! 
ME: Okay, you just lost yourself the sale of both of those $3 things. 
WEBSITE: AW MAN! 
ME: And actually, with shipping, that kinda makes the whole thing not worth it, so I think I'll look elsewhere. 
WEBSITE: WOW, I SURE WAS PROGRAMMED WITH CUSTOMER PSYCHOLOGY IN MIND! 
ME: I see. And how long have you sure was programmed with customer psychology in mind?
WEBSITE: YOU'RE NOT FUNNY.
