To Pay Or Not To Pay

Hello shirt fans, new and old! This week, we have something a little different.

Some of you have been sent here by our friends over at CNET because you’ve purchased a Cheapskate Mystery Box. In which case, your shirt is on the house. Or, sort of on the house. You did pay for the Cheapskate Box, after all. So maybe it’s kinda draped over a corner of the house a little? Or balled up and pushed next to the house?

Look, it doesn’t matter. What’s important is this: at checkout, enter the coupon code you’ve been supplied, and the price magically disappears.

Sorry everyone else. If you want these shirts, you gotta pay. Although, there’s another twist here.

You see, the Cheapskate Box isn’t just a bunch of delightful, useful, and/or goofy stuff for a modicum of the price you’d pay if you bought all the pieces individually. It’s a a bunch of delightful, useful, and/or goofy stuff for a modicum of the price you’d pay if you bought all the pieces individually that HELPS THE WORLD. Because all proceeds CNET gets from selling these boxes go to:

And so, for those of you who are just here to buy shirts, don’t worry. You can get in on this giving action too. For every shirt we sell, we’re going to donate $2 to those charities. Or, if you get the two-for-$18 deal, we’ll donate $3. Which means, if you want both designs, the most charitable thing to do would be to buy 1, pay for it, come back, and buy another.

Or, like, you could just donate some money to one (or all) of the 3 charities listed above. That would be pretty cool too.

At any rate, we hope you enjoy your cheap/free shirt, and thanks for supporting a great cause!

Cheapskate and proud of it

What is Mediocritee, you ask? More like, what isn’t Mediocritee! Actually, wait, no. You were right. On second thought it really is like: what is Mediocritee? Because here at Mediocritee we do a specific thing (shirts, duh) and we do them a specific way. Each week we invite one shirtsmith to present two variants of on a design/theme. Then you get to choose: do you want shirt #1, or shirt #2? (And all the while, we’re hoping they choose #3, which is both shirts).

But really, what Mediocritee does is provide a canvas. We’re here because we want to showcase the fun, beautiful, silly, and downright weird work of some of our favorite artists and designers. That it can printed on a thing you can wear is really just a bonus.
