Midnight Box: BOX-A-THON

submitted on February 3, 2010 by JackBauer in "Sales / Promotions"
Taken from the MidnightBox website about "What is a Box-A-Thon?".

A Box-A-Thon is a selling format where a different product is launched immediately after the sellout of the previous product. This format will be used from time to time on the site and may run from one to three days in length. So get your extra-large cappuccino ready for some serious savings. One after another after another after another …

As I mentioned yesterday, due to their frequency as of late, it's probably best these events be posted here.

    Recurrent theme... Office Max coupon as well. Balance between ease of finding deals for general visitors and overcrowding of repetitive deals for regular users.

    I think Mike and Yan would tend to err on the side of more deals posted, even if it is repetitive.

      If you take notice on the last one I posted:

      http://www.buxr.com/deal/midni.....box+a+thon

      We kept expiring and reactivating this deal. I figured instead of constantly doing that, we could just bump this thread.

      What do others think? Mike and Yan, feel free to jump in as well.

    I personally consider the Box-a-tron and Woot Sellout as low value due to recurring nature. It really takes little effort to find them, just come to the same website once in a while, usually at midnight.

    Man, I wrote the above not realizing that this thread was bumped because there is a Box-a-tron today. Jack, you should probably create another thread that doesn't have all the discussion at the top about where the deal belongs Smile

      True enough, but the fact remains that if there is one on, you can follow it and score some pretty hot savings, but often only if you act quickly.
