Don't you just love the random Amazon sprees?

    Every so often, although not often enough, I get somebody going insane through my Amazon capsules.

    Yesterday it looks a big Samsung fan decided to tech out his or her living room, I sold about 10 Samsung items including an AV reciever at over $200 and a $250 3D Blu-Ray player, whilst I can't be certain it looks as if the same person spent around $1500 on Samsung gear (damn 4% cap).

    The best bit is that I can't think of a single Samsung item or similar branded item that I sell which could have evoked this spree, for all I know he could have been looking at something entirely different and then had a craving to splash some cash.


    I needed that though, my month is in danger sloping off into near zero growth again, but I should at least beat my Amazon this month by a fair bit on January.

    I to had a little spree yesterday- sales increased by half in the month 8 to 12- only thing is they were all low value- never mind the samsung could be around the corner!

    well done Ryan and  hopefully you can send some of your good fortune my way!

      I had a weird one on the first day of the month - someone decided to buy 18 ties, all the same color. Don't know what they will do with them. Couldn't believe it - first time I have ever been above the bottom tier on the first day of the month.

        Maybe it was for a stag party or a sports team night out smile

    Yes, it's fun when that happens.  Totally out of the blue someone goes crazy with an open wallet.

    It happened to me before Christmas and someone splurged something over $900 on power tools, buying 6 or 8 different things.  And with no 4% cap, even!

    Love the TV sales. One of my early sales was a samsung tv and bluray player. It quickly convinced me.

    I've been doing great, minus the previous 2 days. I woke up today and sold 3 things $100 items. Always a big boost to the beginning of the day.

        Expect a downturn in April for tax returns, but other than that we should see consistancy return for the duration of the year.

        I don't like January, I don't much like February either, but March is my birthday month and the start of the year for me smile

    For me yesterday was historic tongue, I sold a very expensive telescope (Celestron CPC 1100 StarBright XLT GPS Schmidt-Cassegrain 2800mm Telescope ), I should collect 182 dollars from that sale:)smile, it is twice as much as I made in October.
