Meh…I’ll wait for a 40% discount.

I have seen it as high as 35% discount, and 50% bonus. Never a 40% discount…

I agree. Haven’t seen a 40% discount yet. It’s all word play, which changes the equation and price. 30% bonus or 30% discount. It makes a huge difference in the eventual CPP that you buy it at.
