Mine came in time for Father's Day! I vowed never to do preorders again!

As a consumer, anything less than a 20% discount doesn't really make me move any differently than I was already planning to. As a business owner, I have also seen this to be true from people who shop from me.

So, any combination of fun things that brings it close to 20% less than retail is great - buy 5 get 1 free, 10% off plus freebies (I think its GREAT when you offer people a choice on their freebies - 2-3 choices so they can get something they really like!). I don't really like it when freebies are a surprise. That wouldn't move me to purchase more.

I personally don't like sales that give me a discount off future purchases b/c I usually do most of my shopping all at once (I am not a cd addict though making multiple purchases - much more of a minimalist - so you may not wanna take my opinion on that). Plus, I always forget to use my future discounts - so when I see those types of specials, I don't use them. That being said, I do think that a lot of other mamas like that. I think I may be in the minority here.

I don't NEED free shipping, but I do really enjoy it - but any shipping that falls under $5 works for me. Like a flat rate shipping - all orders ship for $3.95 or something like that. If shipping goes over $5, I typically won't buy it (unless I am placing a really large order)

Personally, i don't do anything with "points", but I know a lot of people really like that.

I like discounts on multiple quantities too.

I am shopping for fuzzibunz one size elite, wet bags (name brand), swim diapers (I am sure those WONT be on sale ha ha ha), wipes warmer replacement pads, and little soap cubes for wipes.

Hope that helps! Thanks for asking for feedback on your sales!
I'm looking for good deals on a boba 3g, pocket diapers like tots bots or swaddle bees and trainers and lots of freebies.

Me too - stackables, surprise freebies, double reward points, ect.
I think it's smart to do these vs. free shipping - I know it always sucks me in to hit the min for free shipping and wanting a better surprise or freebie, so it's great for you as a retailer!

Easy to understand, yes. Last year there was a few I had to read a few times, too. I just skipped right over those.

ETA: I like a good % off, too. Maybe a mixture of both, or an option?

I would love o see some good discounts for bulk purchases. As in buy 5, get 1 free sort of deals. I have no dea what kind of margins you guys have, though, so I don't know if this is even possible!

I am ALL for bulk discounts. This isn't a margin business, it's a volume game for sure.
