(First off, I'm not altogether sure where else to post this, so I apologize if this is inappropriate.)
I bought the Destiny Expansion Pass at Gamestop for $35+tax = $37.19 (USD)
I redeem the 25-digit code for ... $35. Ok, so it was a glorified gift card....
I go to the Expansion Pass in the Store and download it. It costs $35 + tax = $36.17
Why? I don't care that the tax happens to be at different rates, I want to know why was I taxed on both the "gift card" and the expansion pass? Was it because the "gift card" was advertized as something more substantial than a gift card, and thus it could actually be taxed?
Seriously, help me understand this.
