Legendary Live Sale Round 2... Official Thread

Legendary Corals

Hey Nano-Reefers,



We're whipping a mini live sale for the end of the summer and we're having it right here on Nano-Reef! Here's what to expect:



The Legendary Live Sale RULES (Rules may change at anytime. By participating in this live sale you will automatically agree to the following rules):


  • WHEN: Date: 12:00pm - 4:00pm (PST) on Saturday, August 29th
  • CORALS: 250+ Pure WYSIWYG Corals, posted in 5 minute intervals in between (roughly 5 corals per update). We're going for more variety vs quantity for this mini sale.
  • All corals will be added to our website along with the thread that has a link to the site. Look under the "Live Sale" tab of our site. The tab will be broken up into tabs indicating which hour the corals came from (it will make sense when you view the site the day of the sale).
  • Snipers be ready! All corals are heavily discounted from their already awesome prices. There will be a handful of $5 corals and an even smaller handful of $1 corals! And you all know we like to keep only the nice stuff around. ;)
  • For $5 corals, you must have purchased at least ONE regular live sale item for each $5 coral you snipe. For $1 corals, you must have purchased at least TWO regular live sale item for each $1 coral you snipe. This is how we're going to ensure that enough people have chances to snipe on these deals instead of having just a few people take them all and leave the rest empty handed.
  • If you pick up a $5 or $1 coral without fulfilling the requirement during the sale, you are allowed to keep your snipes as long as you purchase the necessary # of corals at the end of the sale. For example, if you have 2 regular live sale items and a $1 coral already and another $1 coral comes up, you can snipe it. Later on in the live sale, you pick up 2 more regular live sale items, fulfilling your requirement to keep the $1 item.
  • If you do not fulfill the requirement by Saturday, August 30th 6:00pm PST, you will forfeit your $1 and $5 corals that did not fulfill the requirement and the $1 and $5 that were forfeited will be posted back on the site for others to grab. Those who grab the special deal pieces will need to fulfill the requirement as well. If your order does not fulfill the requirement after the $1 and $5 pieces are put back up, then you will automatically forfeit the corals.
  • All remaining corals that are not picked up on the live sale will be left at live sale prices until Tuesday, September 1st 11:59pm PST. Afterwards, they will be full priced items.
  • Under the rare case that the coral is not well to ship, you will receive a similar piece if in stock. If no coral is in stock, then we will refund you.
  • PAYMENT: PayPal only, first come first served.
  • ALL SALES ARE FINAL. No exchanges, refunds, etc. No credit or coupons can be applied.
  • Your item is NOT yours until it's payed for. If it's in your cart, it isn't safe from other reefers!
  • If for some reason you and someone else got the same coral, the first person to check out will win the coral and we will notify you if we have a similar item we can offer.
  • SHIPPING: During the live sale, the automatic shipping fee will be waived. Instead, under the "SHIPPING DATES" tab, choose a date to have your package sent out for a flat fee of $50 (free at $350).
  • Prepaid Shipping is $30 until August 28th (day before the live sale). On the day of the event, the full shipping price will resume. If your order reaches $350, we will refund you the $30. Prepaid Shipping modules may be purchased here: http://www.legendary-corals.com/#!live-sale-shipping/c1ua8
  • We will ONLY ship to the address on your PayPal. So please have this updated on your account to avoid any confusion.
  • Because we're awesome, we'll allow combined shipments. Just let us know at the end of the sale who else needs to go into your box.
  • If no shipment date has been requested by Sunday (August 30th) we will be shipping your package out the following Monday (August 31st) by default.
  • If you do not pay for shipping by the end of the week (August 31st, 11:59pm PST) you will be forfeiting your corals and your payment for your purchased corals will not be refunded.
  • FAQs: For our FAQs, please visit this link: http://www.legendary...dary-faqs/c1bp8
  • PRIZE: Since this will be a 4 hour live sale, we're going to give away 3 sweet prizes once again!
  • To be eligible, you must check in every hour and have made a purchase. You simply need to post "Check in hour #" for each hour. If you miss an hour, you will be disqualified for the prize.
  • However, if you checked in every hour but didn't win a prize we'll add a $50 coupon via PM as a thank you for staying with us the whole time! Coupons must be used within a month and on orders of at least $100.
  • We will pick the three winners via a brown goody bag, which will be filmed! Each item you purchase (except $1 and $5 corals) will count towards a ticket. So if you purchase 5 items, you will have 5 tickets. We'll let the winners choose their prize in the order that they are pulled from the bag. For example: 1st winner gets first pick, 2nd winner gets 2nd pick, and 3rd winner and 3rd pick.

Prize #1: Extreme LC Zoa Pack (worth $400+)

That is a pretty shady business practice.

IMO it's even more dickish to snipe all the cheap corals and not make the minimum purchase, while people who buy plenty of regular priced corals are screwed out of the cheapies.

So make it a straight up limit. 2 or 3. And if they don't complete the requirement remove them from their order and resell them but don't keep the money and resell them. That is straight up theft.

It's no fun to make limits. The sale is only for 4 hours and you do have over 24 hours to complete the requirement. Most people finish up what they need shortly after the sale, but you never know. We need orders to be complete by the days we have to ship. These are also only $1 and $5 corals. It's to keep things fair and to make you fulfill your requirements rather than hold everyone else up and for those who wanted those corals but couldn't snipe them fast enough. People shouldn't be grabbing all of the special deal pieces and not have any intention on fulfilling the requirement.

These are always tough because its whoever pays for it first and thats it, atleast the auto shipping fee is waived.

 

I assume you talk about the $1 and $5 frags will be forfeit and you won't be keeping the money..

If people do not complete their orders by midnight of Sunday, then they will lose their $1 and $5 corals that didn't fulfill the requirement. It seems some people have issues with us saying that we'll be keeping the money. The reason why we say that we'll keep the money is to pressure people into fulfilling their orders. Without any consequences, there will be no incentive to follow the rules.

 

But since it seems there's some negative feedback, I think having customers lose their $1 and $5 corals and having those items back up for grabs for people that would like to follow the rules would make more sense. There's a reason why we post the rules ahead of time, to get feedback from people. Hopefully there are no issues with this method.

Yup! Pick up is always welcomed. And sounds like Christmas is about to come 4 months early LOL

The problem with the super cheapies is you don't know what else will come. Without any recourse you are incented to "Buy" every cheap frag you can that you might want...then at the end of the day look at what you got and figure out what you actually want and then buy sale items as needed.

 

If you only end up getting 1-2 $1/$5 frags great. But if you end up getting 10 of them you might only want to keep the best 2-3 since you will also have to buy another 1 frag for every $5 or 2 for every $1.. could end up needing to buy an additional 6 frags to keep the 3 $1 you managed to grab.

 

I think it is perfectly acceptable if people cant buy by the end of the weekend they don't get a refund. What are people worried about? You planning to hoard them all and only take the 2-3 you actually want? That is the only reason to be worried...

 

If I buy an airline ticket and at the last minute can't make the flight - you bet your ass the airline fills that seat and doesn't refund me the money. This isn't some super illegal new concept and it is only $5.

When you say check in every hour you mean post here on this thread? and when you say made a purchase does that mean 1 purchase every hour or one purchase total and checked in every hour?

 

Thanks!

At least one purchase throughout the 4 hours, and you must check in here every hour. Every purchase you make equals to one ticket as well.

I bet no one is complaining about you saving them $20 on shipping as an incentive to buy stuff. :lol:

I will probably spend a lot more but I was wondering what happens if I buy two regular sale items. Does that mean I'm eligible for 2 five dollar and 1 one dollar item?

If you buy two regular sale items, that will entitle you to two $5 OR one $1. Think of it as like tokens you're using. Two tokens can get you two items or that one token can get you a better item, which in this case is a $1 steal.
