Did I mention that, starting in early August, we'll be able to add names?
I like running a business.
I get to decide what goes on sale and when, and I get to tell you all about it.
Here’s what’s coming to a Lunchsense website near you:
You want the best possible deal and you want to get this off your back-to-school “to-do” list? BUY NOW. From today through August 2, everything on the Lunchsense website will be discounted 20% . All you need is the code, and here it is: EBS201120
You’re not quite ready to buy? COME BACK IN AUGUST (don’t worry, we’ll remind you). From August 3 through August 24, everything on the Lunchsense website will be 10% off. Here’s the code: PTS201110 (note that it won’t be live until August 3, though).
Wondering why you’d buy at 10% rather than 20%? Here’s why: two days – August 8 & 9, 2011 - of FREE PERSONALIZATION, and two days – August 15 & 16, 2011 – of FREE SHIPPING. Neither of these deals needs a code, they’ll just magically apply to everyone on those days.
Either of these deals MIGHT meet or beat 20% off, depending on your location and whether you want a name on that lunchbox. Which one is better for you? It all depends on where you live and what you want to order. I’d suggest you go to the website, figure out what you’d like, then figure out when it makes the most sense for you to place your order.
Why am I telling you this? Check out this post from last October for my opinions about discounts, but in a nutshell:
1. I prefer transparency and forthrightness over obfuscation and sneakiness any day.
2. Offering the best deal early helps smooth out an otherwise chaotic month of back-to-school selling, and ensures that everyone will get their order with plenty of time to spare.
3. Because I can. It’s my business.
