No Pressure, Just Buy!

Last week, I received a coupon from TigerDirect. I could save 20$ of my next 200$ purchase. The catch, the coupon expired in less than two days. I also received a similar deal from Dell. I could get great savings on computers, but only until the end of weekend ( less than two days ).

Pressure sales are nothing new. Anybody who has shopped for a car will tell you that the pressure is on when the salesmen gets a comission. Even infomercials on TV want you to call in the next 30 minutes for grrreat! savings. Is this just an emerging thrend for online commerce?
