The tl;dr: "You better buy this $50 bundle of a bunch of mounts and pets and bulls*** hats because they're going away forever maybe!"

Not defending the practice, but everyone has a sale around this time, and severely marking down something that is discontinued is common practice in stores, so how is this the straw that broke you?
Did I just hear myself say...three minutes?

Items in the See You Later Bundle will enter hibernation on January 6, 2019 and will no longer be available in the Blizzard® Shop or in-game shop (until further notice). These items may return at some point in the future.

Because this is the first time they've ever "discontinued" something and its done solely in hopes of driving up sales of this bundle.

It's digital too... so what's the point? They just decided a last sale would make more money than having them up ongoing.

This even gives it away.. "These items may return at some point in the future."

It's just a marketing ploy to get people that wouldn't buy these items to buy them in fear of never being able to get them.

My favorite part is that one of the mounts is the Laughing Skull mount which was already a cashgrab in WoD.

I think the smartest part is each 1 needs to be bought separately(mount/pet/helm) so its a $1.?? charge for each purchase rather than buy multiple and pay tax 1 time XD

What? They put the stuff on sale all the time. Hell, the mounts are currently discounted RIGHT NOW.
Rage is a hell of an anesthetic.

Discontinued, not discounted. They're removing those items from the store for however long and it's an obvious ploy to drive sales.
