It is a mystery ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Throw it in the trash
Tuesday, Jul 5 - Friday, Jul 8
Slowing down . . . Now we at 3+ min to sell 50.
/giphy whale watching
@duodec M R Not Wales.
@Ark_kun I will never financially recover from this.
Unbelievable - 45 bought so far !!!
Over a minute!
If this isn’t the optimized price point it’s getting close.
NOTE to MEH: optimized price point refers to fifty IRKs sold to wealthy lunatics, not optimized for customer satisfaction.
Starting to feel like the butt of a long joke…
Or at least some kind of Pavlovian experimentation.
@dasred I want a giant unicorn cat.
@dasred @Kyeh … And a purse full of fairy dust!
@dasred @ircon96 @Kyeh And her hair and figure.
@dasred @ircon96 @werehatrack
Yeah, I’d settle for her figure!
wait, did we reach the bottom?
/giphy not possible.
So does this one include a coupon for $2.50?
So apparently $75 is the price point where they don’t instantly sell out, looks like we have achieved some mediocre data collection
@Einherjar13 i would have never guessed it would take this much keep even just 50 from selling out instantly.
I guess for some, the instant part of the regret starts early
@Einherjar13 @ybmuG Either that, or 5pm ET is when everybody checks on what their bots have been up to for the day.
@Einherjar13 @ircon96 @ybmuG Buy high, sell for zero.
2 minutes in and still some left!
Still available at 2 minutes!
We found the limit.
The number available keeps going down…
Not an instant sell out but it’s close to selling out. When there is no correlation between price and items included, it’s pretty shocking
4 minutes to sell out…I think that’s a record.
Wow, lasted nearly 4 minutes this time.
That lasted nearly a full 4 minutes. Thats gotta set some sorta record right?
3 minutes 55 seconds by my count to sell out an IRK.
That’s gotta be a record!
This is like Meh’s version of the challenge from Brewster’s Millions…
I couldn’t go thru with it, I cancelled my order…
@futurian good decision
Want to tamper with the data?
Everyone buy at $90 instantly, then cancel after sellout.
@djslack I was just going to say - it would be funny if all of them got canceled on one of these sales.
@Kyeh spread the word… #buyat90!
@djslack @Kyeh That’s why I think it’s total confirmed (non-cancelled) sales plus time to sell out that will be important factors. I was OK with a pricey IRK until it was pointed out that the coupons likely won’t be transferrable.
Why arr people still buying these boxes?!?!?!?
/image the world may never know
Lots of money, no brains
@tinamarie1974 I’m sort of thinking that I’ll never get another chance to get fleeced like this, but I can’t work up the energy to watch the clock closely enough.
@simtel20 @tinamarie1974 set a timer on your phone 20-30 seconds before the new one goes live.
@simtel20 but it is not worth $80!!! I mean occasionally there is an extrodinary box, but even then, if I am spending that much money I am purchasing exactly what I want.
if they implement this higher priced ($10+ IRKs) only whales will be buying IRKs. feels like it completely loses the spirit and original intent
@durango99 I totally agree!!!
Was there a vmp hour?
@american_badger There hasn’t been a VMP hour for ages. No member hour either.
This was posted on the offering during the mehembers hour:
MEMBER BENEFIT: Nope, there’s no special member hour today BUT all members who buy at least one IRK any time today will also get a $15 Mediocritee coupon to use over at mediocritee.com
@american_badger @sammydog01 I bought a projector back in May that was paused for member hour.
@american_badger @PHRoG @sammydog01 really hoping it’s for VMPs, too, not just members.
@american_badger @PHRoG @sammydog01 now that is sweet as I buy there from time to time. All in at 90
@american_badger The real VMP hour was the friends we made along the way.
@american_badger @mikey They used to have a VMP hour for mehrathons but changed it to a member hour. The pause on daily deals I think is just for VMPs. I forgot about that.
@blaineg so true, friends don’t let friends buy junk alone. We buy so much junk
I’m waiting for the $100 tier.
wonder if people buying read the actual IRK description or if they assume the IRK will be actually $75 worth of product.
@durango99 I cant read
Judging from all the rage on the reveal threads every time, a lot of people can’t read.
This time they’ll be highly entertaining, I bet!
POPSOCKETS! COURT DOCKETS! FOLK ROCK HITS! AWESOME!
@durango99 @mexicantacos “read” is a mighty short cant.
@durango99 @Kyeh @mexicantacos I think customer service may be kept busy by illiterate fools.
Don’t think of it as blowing $75+ on IRK crap. Think of it as pre-paying $75+ on Meh things you’d buy anyway.
@aquastardreamer except it is 15 separate purchases for $5 off that must be used by the end of the year
@aquastardreamer $5 off on 15 purchases, that must be made before the end of this year. So, roughly one purchase every 10 days.
192 days to use them. I bet they’re hoping to drive up sales on Sidedeal.
@MrMikenIkes details details
@aquastardreamer @CBL_WV @Kyeh
… But not Morningsave, Mediocritee, or the other mercatalyst sites? Why break from the constellation of mehmbership benefits?
@aquastardreamer @CBL_WV @earmstrong
Price points should be randomized, and not n of one. This experimental design is very Meh.
“You bought 45 of these. We sold out at 5:03pm.”
It’s only 4:52pm? IRKs from the FUTURE???
You’re not on the east coast, are you. It’s only 3:55 where I am.
@togle The East Coast (and Ohio, FTM) is from the future.
@Kyeh @togle OR your computer/phone clock needs winding.
@Kyeh I’m in the Central time zone, so I couldnt make sense of it
@togle You mean since Texas is also Central, so you were expecting them to use that? I guess they compromised by starting the day on Eastern time after complaints in the beginning.
