It seems to me that just because once or twice a year there may be a time period where you can get an equal or greater discount on something does not make these anniversary coupons worthless at all. There are many instances where a new game comes out and does not become part of our sales for a year or two after release, or it's simply months until the next sale starts and you'd like to buy a game sooner. I can go once per year and get some free ice cream at a local shop too, but it doesn't make me feel disappointed if someone offers me some ice cream at another time of the year.
Either way, you have something, that you did not have before which could in the future provide you with some savings when you make a purchase. It's a simple thank you and I'm not sure how it can really be controversial.
What would have made you happy in this instance?
Erik, I am happy that we are getting ANYTHING. Both we members and Matrix benefit. Members get a nice discount and Matrix gains even more appreciation. So I say THANKS.
