Discount = faulty = fed up me!

This is just a rant, but I am sooo fed up of purchasing goods at a discounted price here (often the item at full price is not available), only to discover they are defective in some way. The defect ranges from minor to major, and it happens regardless of the price. I would happily pay full price for a fully functioning item, but it seems here I don't even have that choice

Re: Discount = faulty = fed up me!

To an extent I know what you mean. My most recent discount failure was 2 strip plug extensions. One was cracked, and the other started arcing alarmingly as soon as it was plugged in.

That said I don't think that it's a problem that is exclusive to Switzerland. I can certainly remember a fair amount of crap that I bought at discount in the UK.
