PSA: More examples of Bitinstant's suspicious exchage rates

I know there was a similar post by u/psapsaps 3 days ago about this issue. I decided to take a chance and try it out anyway becase its the easiest and quickest way for me to obtain btc right now.
My first purchase was of $100 usd, + the $3.95 for zip zap they dont even warn you about.
purchase was executed around 2:30pm utc on 4/16. I got a confirmation email at 2:33 utc
mt.gox was at $65 +-$3
considering bitinstant fee of 3.99%, my deposit was of $96.01
i received 1.20595 at 3:52 pm utc at the rate of $79.61 , so theres that. Where were my bitcoins from 2:30 pm utc to 3:52 utc?
Well i decided it was worth another try just for the sake of getting more information.
today 4/18 at 1:05 pm utc i got a confirmation form zip zap that my second purchase (this time of $200) had been succesfully processed. Bitinstant emailed 3 minutes before that at 1:02 pm to confirm that my order had executed for 192.02.
at 1:07pm utc i receive 2.01639364 btc at the rate of $95.22
mt.gox had been at $92 +-$1 during the surpricingly short amout of time it took for my cash deposited at 1:00 pm utc to turn into bitcoins in my wallet at 1:07 pm utc.. but whats up with the exchage rate?
I just wanted to share my experiance with reddit about bitinstant so that everyone can make a more informed opinion about their service. If anyone has any information to prove that im an idiot, please share. i hope this is all an error on my own or on bitinstant part.
edit: At this url... well this:
"As regards bitcoin price: We will honour the price from the time your order was placed - but we will usually do so by sending you the difference manually with a fee refund after dealing with delayed orders.
Since price has recently dropped, it may in fact be in a lot of customer's interests to allow their orders to execute at current prices and this is what we would recommend."
