I'm not sure it's a glitch - It is a deal with promotions and they are no longer showing so it's probably been noticed and corrected. A glitch implies that we can get something ridiculously low or free. I wouldn't worry as we all have times when we don't know how to categorise things. 😂

I don't exactly know what the deal was.

A glitch doesn't have to be super cheap (but the best ones are).

A glitch is when you can get items that are priced incorrectly, usually due to promotions applying incorrectly. For example, and I'm not sure if this is similar to what you were trying to say, but if there was a promotion where you buy one product and get 50% off a second, then edit the basket to only have one item, and it applied the promotion to just the one item, that would be considered a glitch.

Glitch is often used for other misprices too - where someone (or a system) has accidentally marked the price wrong.

And for deal stacks too, where multiple promotions are available on top of each other - technically these aren't always glitches - sometimes companies are happy with promos stacking, sometimes they're not (and in these cases the systems usually prevent it). When a system should prevent a stack and doesn't - glitch.

If your promotions were meant to only be applied under certain circumstances and you got around that, then yes it would be a glitch. Possibly not the best one going by comments, but still...
