Play it smart to get the stuff you want.
Select a realistic discount range
Group buys offer discounts beyond those typically found in seasonal or even Black Friday sales. Often times discount tiers are separated by a mere $25 ($300 off vs. $275 off for example). If you’re really willing to walk away over $25, then by all means select the $300 tier. Just imagine the deal ending and only reaching the $275 tier. Your order will be cancelled and you won’t have the opportunity to change your pledge, and will miss out on getting any discount at all.
There is no cost to pledge, and no obligation to purchase if your discount range isn’t met. Pledging early shows other current and potential members how popular the deal truly is. This encourages more participation, which gives you a better chance of receiving the maximum possible discount.
Share the deal
Want a bigger discount? Don’t underestimate the power of the interwebs. If you make a simple Instagram or forum post promoting a deal, you may be surprised at how much interest is generated. It’s a sure-fire way to increase your chances at reaching the maximum possible discount.
If making a social media post, be sure to use relevant hashtags, so your post reaches a wider audience.
