Bother, these kind of promotions really don’t encourage me to buy…. “buy a lot of cheap stuff you probably don’t need or want right now…but its cheap and you can get a mystery surprise! or discounts on things” that never works for me. If I have money to buy all those things to get enough points, i’d rather put that towards a few products that I absolutely need to use.
These can be fun games for people with extra funds who don’t mind paying extra to get to the “meat” of the sale/party, but sales like “buy one, get one free (and not from a list of a few things, that you may or may not already own) are a much better incentive for me. Or last month, when everything was discounted. if Daz was to have, say, “buy one, get one equal or lesser value” for Daz originals, for example, I’d totally be on that wagon. or a solid 50% off Daz O’s. I’d be on that wagon too. Or “renew your membership, get a 50% off any cart of Daz O’s. Things like that.
Deals like “buy what we tell you to, every day, to get something mystery” doesn’t really appeal. Nor do many of the coupons lately that say “spend at least $$$ to get coupon for $ off”.
Last month was awesomeness. Straight up sale prices, at least if you’re a PC member, slightly more costly to non pc members, and coupons off as well. Last month was great, best sale of the year so far! Looking forward to more from the PC anniversary but I hope it’s not all dependent on buying PC items. I get plenty of PC things, and I have several west park things, and i just bought a couple PC items last week. But i get them when i need them, and not a “pay this much to get a PC reward” which is basically what this type of event boils down to.
Still, watching with interest!
