That’s not the only thing going on. Watch the timer. 10 seconds between flips, and then the final digit is always between 0 and 5? So entirely skips :36 through :39 and :26 through :29? Either my clock is very screwy or more is going on.
Edit: Well… now my timer is gone… nvm then. Nothing to see here. Justs a totally normal Mehrathon that’s not a Mehrathon. Carry on.
@ircon96@medz@sammydog01 I’m taking a load of stuff today to donation that includes IRK items. It is my goal to do a deep clean on my home on all the stuff that is pushed into nooks and crannies and drawers and cabinets and…it was amazing how much stuff I had. (and I’m sure stuff I will find)
@medz@sammydog01@sunnysideup22 I am WAY overdue for a massive clean out, I’m one step below being the subject of an episode of Hoarders! Good luck with your deep clean, I’m impressed with your gumption!
Be interesting to see if they stop selling out as the price goes up. If Meh was still selling stuff like they did their first few years I’d be willing to pay more to get the coupons, but their more current selections don’t really make me wish I had coupons to use.
Wonder how much the VMP/mehmber ones will cost if we still get our hour.
@SylvreKat well, not exactly, but that’s happening too. Meh says so.
I meant that if someone has a bot that can successfully autobuy IRKs and doesn’t check the prices, they will hopefully be in for a rude awakening and have hundreds of dollars in coupons to show for it.
I wonder how many people got multiple boxes at higher price points? I would have for $10 -$15, maybe even $20, but at $70 it’s way to rich for me. I wish I would had caught on early in the morning to hat they were doing.
This makes none of the senses to me. I get the “bot tester” experiment, but hopefully this isn’t a “let’s see if someone will pay $100 for an IRK (minus $95 worth of nonstackable pretty useless coupons)”, and then later we’ll rewarding them for trusting us… But if they’re just doing it to test the bots, it’s bad marketing for anyone new here who just wants to buy something.
I’ve been doing some math, instead of working… as you do. here’s what I’ve come up with:
If the IRK releases continue on an hourly basis, meh will sell up to 1,100 IRKs today
If they sold all 1,100 IRKs at the ever-increasing prices, they would make $58,000 in gross revenue
But each $5 spent on an IRK comes with a coupon for $5 off a future product
People who bought an IRK at $5 get one coupon, and they’re very likely to redeem those coupons. But people who buy an IRK at $105 will get 21 coupons each, and they’re very likely to NOT be able to redeem all those coupons. My estimate for total coupon redemption is 85%.
Also some people will cancel their orders. I estimate 70 cancellations.
So I estimate meh will sell $52,855 worth of IRKs after cancellations and honor $41,485 worth of coupons, leaving them with a net revenue of $11,370.
If they had sold those IRKs for $5 a piece, they would have made $5,500 in revenue. So according to my estimates they’re netting an additional $5,870 and guaranteeing that customers will come back and make 8,937 purchases using the $5 coupons.
Brilliant work, meh.
P.S. The coupon redemption rate would have to be slightly greater than 89.5% for meh to make less revenue on this offering than they would selling IRKs for $5 (but this doesn’t account for the profit on whatever those coupons are used for).
