Yeah. Wouldn’t want to read that just after a cuppa coffee; I’d probably never sleep again. But I’m sure there’s a thing or two that could be said, now that we’re all zooming along. Let me go and meditate upon it.
I like it because here it’s 9 pm, so I can check it out, click the Meh button (or occasionally actually buy it), read the initial snark, maybe add something, hit the likes, and go to bed knowing I’ve accomplished something …
If you’re asleep at midnight, then you’re probably up by 5 or 6 am (like me) and can get the deal then. If you are awake at 9 or 10 am (like all my friends) then you can get the deal at midnight. It is the perfect set time.
Nothing EVER sells out in five minutes on this site - the deals are NEVER THAT GOOD! It is usually still there when I wake up. It’s only when I forget to check upon waking that I miss a deal.
I have only missed out on a few deals in the entire time I have been a member, and MOST of them come back or are available on MorningSave later.
And yet he did not address the meh button. I had presumed its original intent was to give feedback on whether or not we liked the deal even if we didn’t buy. Of course customers being customers we gave it a life of its own with respect to click face records and now it serves as a driver to make a bunch of people visit the site daily. I am reasonably sure that this was not entirely anticipated in advance.
It used to bother me that the new product was launched at midnight. I’m rarely up at that hour anymore and if I am… it’s not because I’m checking out Meh. But you rarely have something I actually want so it’s not much of a bother. I don’t know why you launch a product at midnight and send the email out at 10am tho. Unless you figure it causes 2 surges. But aren’t most people at work by 10am?
