Getting a deal...?

Does any one manage this? Or just find a cheaper site/better offer the next day?
I ordered from MP yesterday since i had a code. I spent about 30 min shopping around i work away so i wanted 3 months stock to take with me and leave there. However today iv seen 3 offers that where better and one was from MP... I suck at getting a deal.

Yeah ive done this myself.
 
Some companies will give you the difference back especially if the offer goes up before you receive the goods.
 
I don't know about supplement companies it would be interesting to hear if any have policies on this.
 
Amazon do this ive done it before. Bought an Item then its gone down you just email customer service and they refund the difference if was bought a few days before the item went down.

It's called supplements Sod's law.

The bulk brands all put on great deals, and they're of course share of what's going on. When one mega sale ends, another company start their own. This is why the market is so competitive.

You've only got to look at the offers thread to see how many deals they're are daily.

It's mad isn't it! Some amazing sales on, but as prices are constantly changing I would love just low prices across the board without constant specials.

I am always buying things and getting in a day or two before a massive saving. Some things I've started returning to buy twice and save the cash - not online supps yet though!

I am an MP rep on another forum and ive have put this proposal to them before.

Many are scared to buy incase a better deals comes along in a day or 2.

A deal matrix would be helpful for reps to use as a tool to advise people of when poteintial deals were coming. Doubt this will ever happen though as the market is very competetive and many deals are reactive to other companies ones.

It IS sods law. Not helped by customers complaining about the deal emails and then missing the deals. My fave are those who want their payday and the deals to coincide lol.
 
It's no different than the man down the pub whose job it was always to say 'oh but you should have said... I could have got it cheaper' ha ha

Most companies have deals come on on certain occasions ie New Years Day (although I'm not saying I know of any specific deals about to start) so on 30rd dec I'd have been inclined to hold fire. But yeah I've bought plenty of stuff over the years only to see it cheaper straight after.

Its always a good tip wait until certain days and as Mobster and myself discussed on another thread you have to look out for the US sale days that have come over as well now Like the Black Friday , Cyber Monday.
 
As you say mate Boxing Day is now a big one in the shops. New years there's gotta be something.
