*Special Offer* *One Day Only* *Limited Time Special Price*

Discussion in 'Managing Your Flock' started by Dipsy Doodle Doo, Mar 19, 2008.

  1. Hi!
    Does that mean to you, that you respond with 'I'd love to buy what you are offering at that *Special Offer* *One Day Only* *Limited Time Special Price*,
    or is it OK to say, I'll take you up on that offer, but just not right now?, can I take a rain-check?' and have eggs shipped 2 weeks from Thurs unless it rains...?

    To me, it says "There is an abundance of eggs RIGHT NOW" and now is the time to get discounted eggs.

    And it is NOT the time to hang the seller up if you don't plan to follow thru.

    Just curious what the rest of you think.

    I'm sorry Dipsy, I'm lost on this post. Are you saying that you are offering a better price now?

    Uh, oh. Someone hang you up, Lise? Well, I think you know me well enough to know that I know what the answer is. [​IMG]

    It sounds like you have a bunch of idiots calling you. [​IMG]
    One of my favorite lines is, "So sad, so sorry." Don't have the money now? So sad, so sorry. Can't find a bator for the eggs right now? So sad, so sorry. You get the picture. [​IMG]

    I think that is the perfect time to be blunt and say One Day Only , if you can't take it today you just have to take your chances.

  9. Oh no, not me especially. And it wasn't a gripe thread. Just a genuine question.
    I see *one day specials threads* going on for a long time and was just wondering how long you extend the *special*.
    RubberChickenLubber, I don't recall offering you anything.

    No you haven't, I was just lost. I understand what you're saying. I love when people say "one day only" and they end up preselling.
