Why are the deals only up for 24 hours or less?

I usually do not buy deals. Why? Because whenever someone rushes me to decide whether or not I should spend $50 or $100 and I'm unsure of the true value of the "deal", I won't do it.

I understand some of the deals having a short window because in someone's mind they're "such a steal", but let's face it, some of the deals aren't *that* great and if you gave people more time to consider them, maybe you'd sell a few more.

I mean, push out all of the $1, $5, $10, $20 deals with 24 hour timers you want to put out, I can fit those amounts into my budget fairly easily, but $50? $100? Has anyone at Kabam ever had to explain a $100 impulse buy to their spouse? That's not pocket change.

    Keyword: impulse.

    They expect people to impulse buy before they really consider it, which is why you're not buying the deals. I'm not buying the deals either for similar reasons. Not worth it to me.

    EDIT: Kabam doesn't care how you explain the impulse purchase to your spouse. That's not their problem.

    If it wasn't working for them, they'd stop. Obviously they are making a killing or they'd drop the price of the deals down...

    This is exactly the reason

    What is the reason to pull up a 3 yr old thread just to say "this is the reason"???
