    The comments here are a pretty good indicator as to why my sales have absolutely cratered since they started this discount coupon code bullshit. :mad:

    yeah, i cannot imagine why they would let this intern's idea go mainstream for their platform...

    they not only shot themselves in the foot, but also into both feet of all their vendors

    I continue to purchase "important" items regardless of the coupon status, but I can see how some would hold out for the coupon to purchase the higher value "luxury" items. It would have been nice to save $20 or so, but that didn't stop me from buying a bunch of stuff.

    However, I did have a glitch that would have been painful if I was looking to use the coupon: I tried to "checkout," and got an error page that said, basically, "the checkout feature isn't working, check back later." So I tried a bunch more times, tried the app on my tablet; no dice. I tried from my work computer the next day, same problem. It wasn't until I started purchasing each item individually that the error was cleared. So, I would have saved maybe $10 once I got the error resolved instead of $20 with the full cart. Oh well. Still bought a bunch of junk.

    but does it lead to more sales when there are codes than previously say per time period?

    Nope I've got watchers but no one buys when there's coupons

    The 15-20% discounts get me to buy stuff I wouldn't buy otherwise (or not anytime soon) more than they cause me to wait to buy something I was going to buy anyway. If I need it or really want it, I buy either way.

    Thanks for the heads up BigBird! Picked up a brake master I was eying and this discount put me over the top.

    @BigBird how are you finding these? I have the ap as well but they don't seem to 'pop up' for me. Missed out on that last one and I'd like to not have to rely on this thread. You could get distracted by a minivan circle jerk or some shit.

    well you jerking to something since you don't see these :p

    Seriously though, I just check ebay for random things, right now I was looking for a basement TV. That coupon popped up on the website first, then I got a notification later in the day through the app.

    Websites like slickdeals.net also show the code when they pop up if you check there frequently. as soon as I see them, I just try to share the codes . No secret method really.
