CBB/Jellyfish Shopping event: You pick the deals
We’ve partnered with Jellyfish.com to offer ourreaders a chance to save up to 100% off on baby/kids/family stuff. On Wednesday, March 7th at 10 pm EST/7 pm PST, we’ll be offering aspecial evening of shopping of products at a deep discount.
How it works
Jellyfish’s Smack is a reverse auction: as timepasses, price drops. It’s like Woot!on steroids, but instead of one product in one day – it’s severalproducts in an even shorter amount of time. The game is to buy the product at the lowest pricepossible. Towards the end it can get as low as 100% off. The trick isthat you don’t know how many units are in stock, so if you wait toolong… you lose out.
In the beginning of each event, the cash back amount increases every seconduntil a hidden quantity of items is sold out (or until the cash backamount reaches 100% – at which point, it’s free). The deal gets betterevery second that goes by, but if you wait too long the product is goneforever and the deal is over. (Think of it like "Deal or No Deal" forshopping.) While you wait for the price to drop, you can chat with others.
At checkout, players pay full price, but receive the cash back via check within 60 days. Your credit card is charged by and sent from the vendor, not Jellyfish. The vendors are sites you know and trust like BabyCenter.com.
The shopping event will probably last two hours.
What do you want to buy?
We want to make sure we will offer products that you want so please tell us what you are planning to buy soon. We will be need to pick 10-20 products to offer. They can be any size or price. If you have a specific brand, even better. Post a comment and tell us what you want to buy.
Here are some products I’m suggesting:
Bumbo Baby Sitter
Case of diapers
Strollometer (stroller odometer)
Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn™ Learning Home™
Britax Roundabout Car Seat
Ameda Purely Yours Breast Pump
(By the way, we don’t make any money on this event. We just thought it would bea cool way for you to save money on the products you’re going to buy anyway.)
If Smack Shopping is too much action, you can also shop at nearly 1,000 stores via Jellyfish.com every day and get cash back on every single purchase (like Ebates).
