BF deals

Just out of interest what % discounts would get you parting with your cash. I'm sure we'd all like 50% minimum but what is a realistic discount that'll get you spending?

Yeah I've seen that Bill just wondered what discounts convince folk to spend. Seems some of the big players are offering 10% but we can usually get something near that anyway.

I think if its supposed to be a crazy sale day then make it so, 10% isnt enough to make me want to go and buy more as it would be a typical discount applied at anytime of the year. There are a few bigger ones today that are gooD percentage wise. I know most of whats being sold non detailing related is a mixture of old / out of date tech / overstock / some popular items / mostly tat on sale, where as in regards to detailing products its always a reasonably known quality to those that use them, but i still think it should be of an attractive discount percentage for the day / weekend to entice.

At the moment, I'd only buy if it was something I needed. Buying stuff I don't need, even at 50% discount, is still a waste of money.

That said, good deals on snowfoam, fallout remover or shampoo would get my attention at 30% off or better...

I think it all depends on how much I NEED it.

I've been on a few sites this week & put items in the basket I'd just like, and they needed to be nearly 50% off for me to carry the purchase out!

Probably just me being greedy ��
