@newby9 yeah, I’ve received an almost completely empty box with almost nothing in it before… and it wasn’t taped closed.
Made me wonder what was in it to start with, made me sad thinking that could have been the golden-ticket IRK. I don’t know if the contents fell out, were stolen, or… if it really was just a bag and one cheap-badly broken item to begin with.
I just gotta say that the Meh-rathon song is one of my favorite freaking ditties of all time. Rousing, melodic, ear-wormy, funny, clever, well performed, and downright stupid! What more could one ask for in elite contemporary music. I give it a Golden Irk!
With the pricing of most of the items I’ve seen so far, have to buy multiple items and very difficult to hit $30 exactly so another way for them to get rid of multiple shit items in their inventory and take more of our money.
@OnionSoup With the way they are offering IRKs now, I only would get one if the things they sell to get an IRK for free or at a minimal price are things I really want or need. Having gotten over 30 IRKs, the excitement of getting one has long faded although I still enjoy opening a box that I have no idea what is in it.
With my stress at a high lately my memory is terrible and I’ve been dealing with everything by shopping WAY TOO MUCH! The results are that I have absolutely no idea what is going to be in any box that comes through the door, similar to an IRK! The money I’ve wasted adds to the regret as well. Who needs Meh… Lol
@cfg83 This one, I think for the first time, says spend $30 (it doesn’t make it clear if $30.01 is OK too, because getting $30.00 is probably impossible.) But it’s OR MORE, or else you get $0.00, zilcho, nada, big goose eggs. nil-nil draw. (man, how I hate those!)
Previous ones with higher entry fees like $50 or $100 said spend as much as you want, and you’ll get credited for the full amount up to $49.99 or $99.99 so even if you only bought a $10 item, you’d get something back. This one implies you would get nothing (i.e., nil as we’ve already discussed).
Ahem, If you have spent any amount greater than $30 in the Mehrathon, then by definition you have also spent $30. It’s like the old trick question, “How many months have 28 days in them?” Worded that way, the most correct answer is “all of them”.
How many transactions were involved is irrelevant. If you spend $30 or more (NOT including shipping, sales tax, or a Mehmbership) for items offered in the 'thon via the “BUY IT” buttons in today’s 'thon listings, and then you also buy the IRK listed on Side Deal (which may end earlier, but will definitely go away at 11:59:59PM EDT tonight), you will qualify for a $30 refund on precisely one IRK. If you buy more than one IRK, you get no refund on the quantity in excess of one, no matter how much crap you buy in the 'thon.
Thanks for the feedbag … I mean feedback. There is another tweest to this. This deal motivates - skates like me to wait until the last possible deal in order to pick the lowest cash outlay (aka keep my total spend to as close to $30 meh crap + $8 IRK) as possible. I do risk sell-outs, but that’s ok. I won’t wait that long, but I am tempted to.
