The greatest cash back offer of the year is here!

Booking a bus ticket has been so easy these days; you can accomplish the task with just a few taps. What’s more difficult is choosing the service that provides the maximum discount at that particular time of the year.

Thanks to Google and the numerous coupon sites that have cropped up, I made a quick search. I was planning a trip to my home-town and I had to book tickets two tickets — for me and my wife. It would normally cost 1200 bucks so I was on the lookout for a good deal.
“50% cash-back offer — Limited time” read a particular offer.
I searched no more. I rushed straight to that site and started booking my bus tickets. I couldn't believe my luck! I could get those tickets at half the price, I was like

WOW! WOW! WOW! Oh My God! WOW!

After entering all the details, I finally came to the payment page. I entered the coupon code happily expecting that the prices would be slashed by half after I enter the magical code. The amount I had to pay was Rs. 1200 so I was sure of 600 rupees cash back! The greatest cash back of the year…
What! Wait! Is there some mistake?? Let me try again…
The same disappointing thing happened again.

“You will receive a cash back of Rs. 100 within 24 hours”

I was extremely disappointed. That’s not even 10% of my amount.
Guess what they had on the “Terms & Conditions” page (see below)

Billions and billions of bilious blistering blue barnacles…
