@UncleRummy well you can keep the edible stuff. There is nothing in there that sounds any good to me. I think they finally got rid of all the fidget spinners. We haven’t seen them for a while. I’m guessing they are doing a warehouse clean out. They’ve had a number of sales on morningsave to. Maybe moving it to the new place? Is that ready yet?
Legacy Meh VMP’rs (the few who remained after it was closed to new folks spring 2017… so you could no longer turn it off 30 days after ordering something and turn it back on when you again wanted something) in exchange for Kickstaring Casemates.com at the $60 level were “rewarded” with 1 year of VMP (12 x $5) + 3 x $10 discount coupons to be used at any Mediocre site (except Morningsave.com… although that was not disclosed at the time).
So even if you were not a dainty wine drinker (I drink it only in deference to my spouse), the deal made sense if you expected to stay VMP at Meh.comand expected to buy three things before the coupon code expires at the end of this year.
If you were a dainty wine drinker the free shipping of VMP really made sense since Casemates.com shipping is a lot more expensive than the $5 Meh.com shipping.
Four months in and I haven’t found the first of what must be three worthy deals after subtracting $10. Meh.
@djslack Would you happen to know if the fruit and chocolate bites have strawberries? Chocolate covered fruit is one of my favorite things, but I’m allergic to strawberries and don’t want to find out the hard way.
Let’s be candy clear about this: We are done with this stuff. We’re corn-fed up to here. We hope to sell every last bag of it today. But If we don’t? We’re taking whatever’s left over and dumping it in with some “lucky” customer’s order. No matter what, our candy curse is lifted!
“I hear you are a woman who does not mind a little arbitrage.”
Arbitrage. That was her code word. Carla was a fence, a buyer, a seller, a mover. Carla was one of the best in the world. The seller was named Joshua, and the deal was a container from Papua New Guinea packed to the brim with candy, fruit, and snacks. He offered it to her for $4 a pop, she haggled him down to $2. The best fence in the world did not come cheap. She could turn around, sell it on any mediocre website, and come out ahead $6 each, easy. Carla knew better than to ask questions. A quick BTC transfer later she was on her way to the port.
Joshua hung up the phone and smiled. It wasn’t every day someone paid him to be his accomplice.
p.s., at least in CA, they also collect sales tax on the VMP membership fee (at a rate that I have not figured out how they arrived at) & my reading of CA law is that there should not be sales tax applied to the monthly VMP charge, but at $0.44/month, I decided I would just live with it
In for 5 tower, in for 3 tower Saturday belt/razer bundle, in for 2 piece edible last offered… why not be in for 2x2 pc edible (the tall packaging is worth it for gifting WINE!), and a 3 tower thrown in for extra Christmas packaging boxes.
I was right! I held out on the initial offering a week ago because I had a sneaking feeling these thing would end up in a bundle a week later…and look! …reduced-priced and nearly expired snacks all bundled up…now this is a Meh offering!!!
Ok, guys. I took one for the team. At the very least, I will have snacks to throw at the people I live with who enjoy snack food from my local Dollar Tree, and I can recycle the boxes for Christmas give-aways.
A search for superficial-astounding-body images turned up this: Sure hope it’s not a harbinger of things to come after we consume this stuff!
Meh still, right at the top of these posts in the specs, has once spot that says the 5-piece bundle is “Five-pack contains one “Tower,” one “Classic Holiday Surprise,” and two “Indulgent Holiday Surprise”” (1+1+2=4), just so’s ya know.
I’ve bought two of these (this and the previous set) and have been happy with them. I’m the snak faerie at work now. The Holiday Box is sturdy and can be re-purpused to house all yer earbuds, USB cables, and other tiny yet indispensable yet hard to find/store objects. Decoupage anyone? How about a dec the box contest, Meh?
@Pufferfishy. I read closer the description of the contents. Its only the yogurt pretzels that are going to be expired by the time they get to the consumer. Its not like they are dumping 6 month old expired food on people and expecting them to buy it. Jumped the gun before typing. My bad.
My roommate now thinks I’m a crazy hoarder. I didn’t realize the “5 piece” was so many boxes, so I got 2 cause they’re all pretty good. Especially those hazelnut twists. Uhm… Oops.I guess I’ll just have a few boxes over in the pile of boxes I haven’t done anything with lately.
The People I Live With™ sampled some of the items and recommend not putting any of the items out for guests at a party we’re throwing soon. Combined reviews: “Slightly stale, definitely not fresh, and some just taste awful–probably because they WERE awful to begin with. Yeah, Mom, don’t embarrass yourselves by putting it out.” They gave thumbs down to the truffles wrapped in the brightly colored wrappers as well as the Fruit Basket candy. One went as far as to spit her truffle out in the trash. “Yuck!” with a hand gesture.
Nut mixture was soggy. The other chocolate covered stuff & popcorn was “ok, but yeah, tastes old.” This is coming from a pair of older kids who shop for their junk food at the Dollar Tree.
On the flip side, the tall boxes will hold a bottle of wine and the smaller boxes will be great for small Christmas presents, so there’s that.
@mikibell Ok, now THAT’S BAD! Had hyperemesis gravidarum with all my pregnancies. Sometimes I still flinch when I smell certain fragrances like Polo cologne, or the old Clairol Conditioning Shampoo, and it took years before I could stomach broccoli with cheese sauce.
I tried the nuts out of both sets (yeah, fool that I am, I did the big order)and they weren’t worth the calories. Left the rest of the crap carbs to the kids. My husband took a handful of the fruit ball things and spit them out, but then he’s been known to do sacrilegious things like chew up a Snickers fun size and spit it out because he’s “trying to watch his weight.” Soooo wrong.
I’m not convinced the stuff would taste good even when fresh. It all smells…well, my daughter says everything smells like cheap potpourri. She’s right. It DOES.
Hey, Meh, I need some more of the Edible Arrangements snacks. I know the expiration date has passed on some of the items, but I won’t tell if you don’t!
I sent an order to Mom last month, and when I called her for Mothers Day she was dropping heavy hints that she wants MORE. She must have mentioned half a dozen times “I finished all my snacks. They were really good! Yup, they’re all gone. I don’t have any left. They were so delicious!”
Help a fellow out, Meh, hook me up with more Edible Arrangements snacks? Please and thank you.
