A friend forwarded me the two images below. My friend, a prior H&R Block customer, received the 2017 software update for $24.95 while his son, who has not used the software in the past, was offered the identical
software for $9.95. This type of price discrimination always makes me wonder about whether there is disparate impact discrimination going on; here, for example, the older customer pays more than twice what the younger consumer does.
