How did I get Spy Bot Chronicles for free?

I bought it a few days ago after I made a post asking for suggestions, I decided to snap it up quickly because it was only 59p/99c, but looking back at my purchase history iTunes says it didn't cost me anything

I'm positive I didn't get it through a promo code, the only ones I know of were the ones given out today and I bought it around 4-5 days ago.

Weird as hell.

Tell me about it. I'm not complaining it's just freaky.

iTunes only shows the price in purchase history when you download it for the first time. He probably saw the second download in case he downloaded it twice or he`s seeing the update which he downloaded yesterday.

Or may be he did get lucky. Very silm chance of that happening, but not impossible either.

It's the first and only time I've downloaded it, and I also see the update download. Both say free. Has anyone else ever had something like that happen?
