I'm rather confused. I just bought prestige for my main and my alt.

I bought the same amount for both within a span of about 3 minutes, or less!

One was about 20% cheaper than the other.

The cheaper was on Chrome and the more expensive one was on Firefox.

Did I get a discount on one or overpay on the other?

Is it possible that you used different currencies for each transaction? That would be the first thing I would check.

Unlikely... with a name like that

Hahaha! LOL

That's an odd remark @zolvon...

I'm pretty sure what happened is Chrome held onto their sale price, so I got it cheaper than I should have; but still awaiting word from a dev.

I think it is also the currency value that is playing with you.
Euro is the worst one to select, since Euro's are worth more than both Pound and Dollars in the exchange rate.
The best one to get is Pounds, since the pound is very low after Brexit.

So what happened is that you selected Pounds for one and Euro for the other transaction.

It of course depends on which country you live in too.

@DeliciousJosh - no, that's not what happened. I didn't *select* any conversion rate.

That said - it *may* be that the different credit cards used have a different transaction conversion fee. That'll piss me off because they were significant differences!

I'll have to look at my statements to see what they each say.

I stand corrected @DeliciousJosh - I missed the drop-down for choosing currencies and Firefox defaulted US$ and Chrome to British Pounds.

At the time I made the purchase, Brexit was still up in the air.

This time, I chose US$ for both and the price was the same. SMH.

Not a bug, except perhaps PEBKAC. LOL

Devs - this can be closed as an "issue"...

I was wondering what had happened. Glad you solved the mystery!
