I think this is a fabulous idea! I have the store already bookmarked on my phone. :-)

Hello! I grew up in Apple Valley, but I live in Duluth now. I'm going to be in the cities for Black Friday shopping though.

No MOA craziness for you. :-)

What day and time are your sales starting? I may need to set an alarm.

Some of the sales start at 11pm eastern, but they will all be up by 12am eastern (11pm MN time) on Thanksgiving evening.

No.. I do not brave the MOA this time of year. It takes like 1/2 hour to find a parking spot! Burnsville mall, although completely lame, works.

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 agree about the points although I have to get free shipping to order. I won't order if I have to pay for shipping. So the free shipping always draws me in!

Re: Black friday!!

It's a "I need to fix my roof ASAP" early Black Friday kind of sale!

Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales are going to start a little early here at MotherMoonPads, thanks to a horrific discovery of a roof that leaks into the living room (new house, first winter here).

All orders over $35 will receive FREE SHIPPING.

All orders over $50 will receive a FREE VELOUR 8" PANTYLINER (and free shipping!)

All orders over $85 will receive a FREE VELOUR 10" NORMAL FLOW PAD (and the free liner and free shipping too!).

Please use coupon code "BlackFriday"

These offers may not be combined with any other coupon codes.

They are not valid on previous purchases.

The sale starts NOW and will last through midnight PST on Cyber Monday (November 26).

This offer is not valid on custom orders (as I am closed to customs at this time).

Limit one set of freebies per customer, please do not make multiple purchases.

These offers are valid only at www.mothermoonpads.etsy.com

Please allow 2 business days for shipping.
