The beginning of the original post was different but wrong,
because reality was different from what I first thought it to be.

This offer was when my discount code already had been accepted:


Re-edited: For me this has been a new but weird situation. The payment page refused to tell me the final price in advance, but kept saying "Subtotal $25" plus on the next line: "coupon: -$10", without calculating the result - this way making me think $25 was the final result. Only AFTER I'd clicked "Confirm Order" was I told the result is $18,71 (they didn't mention VAT, but it clearly already had been added). This web store is not to my liking.

LinkStash 3 may very well be The Best of the kind,
but in my mind it is merely a bookmark manager and overpriced;
I have never really used my version 2 !
I can (and have) of course read the What's New,
but all the same I am asking (doubting) if version 3 really is worth another $18.71 compared to version 2?

or is my resistance merely due to my hurt feelings from visiting their store (I aborted the purchase)?
