When did being a smart consumer equal being immoral and generally evil?

I look out for good deals. If I can get a 3DS for $169 AND the free games, why shouldn't I? Do you think clipping coupons is immoral too because you're not paying the same price as everyone else?

They're called loopholes for a reason.

you're doing it. Good for you. Now stop bragging and acting like and *ss in every other thread. FYI: you're not smart, just lucky. No way you could have know Nintendo was gonna give out free games. Again, stop acting like and *ss

Still perfectly legal.

If you can't see how you're taking advantage of a loophole and how that pretty much equals being immoral, then there's no point trying to explain it to you.

Why would exploiting a loop hole make you immoral or generally evil?

All it tells me about you is that you are willing to go the extra mile to get the best outcome for yourself.

Selfish? That's subjective.
Immoral? Hell no.

He's being a smart consumer. Everyone else are being rationally irrational.

Alright, let me put this in terms you might understand. Nintendo is offering you
A: 20 free games
OR
B: $80 off

And you're saying "Hmmm...I'll take both and screw a store out of $80 while I'm at it!"

Yes, if I can get both, then why shouldn't I take both?
