    I think that's the case, I've had vouchers before that couldn't be used in conjunction with another voucher but it seems in this case they never expected people to know and use the 3 vouchers for Feb together.

    Coding 101: Assumption is the mother of all fsckups



    If we take one step backwards, all of this could have been a lot less severe if only one thing was implemented: no stacking and no buying of vouchers with vouchers and coupons.

    I've been thinking about how to start avoiding this in future and secure your account:
    1) Accounts must be linked to an ID number and one cell phone.
    2) Each sale must be linked to an OTP sent to the cell phone which in turn must be linked against the cell and account.
    3) If a voucher was used it must be linked against the OTP, Cell and Account.

    Of course all of this needs to pass the acid test and not left up to assumption.

    Their system should be able to prevent you from using a voucher to buy a voucher, from using multiple coupons/vouchers and from using them multiple times. It really shouldn't be too hard to implement, all other online stores do it.

    I'm pretty sure that they'll be implementing something to prevent the buying of vouchers using coupons now.

    Well, my copy of Uncharted 3 arrived today and I've received no communication yet that my R69 voucher has been cancelled. So good news from my side!
