So what happened to the pricing? It used to be $10 for 1 and $15 for 2. Now it’s $12 and $18. As a self-proclaimed cheapskate, I don’t approve of the price increase.
Is that because you’ll donate $2 or $3 to charity for each purchase? If so, that’s increasing the price for the donations making the consumer pay for the donation instead of the profits of the company pay for it.
The Mediocritee weekly email shows incorrect pricing for the shirts. I’ve already been eyeing them, so I knew about the price bump for charity (which I agree with), but some may not be so forgiving. Just a heads up…
I know exactly how this went down with the artist:
Artist: Shows cool designs to CNET
CNET: OMG! Looks amazing! We love it!
CNET - can you add our logo?
Artist - ok.
CNET - A little bigger?
Artist- sighs and makes logo a little bigger.
CNET - that’s not big enough - make my logo BIGGER!
Artist - grumbles and makes logo bigger.
Cool t-shirt design gets weighed down by corporate ego.
@jenbailey Ha, that makes sense but not this time. In fact, the artist originally pitched to have the second design be almost entirely the logo with just small illustrations around it and we decided against it.
@grubesicgirl Since we…almost always…sell things for money rather than giving them away, we coded the checkout process to require a credit card. This is definitely an exception. Of course, it won’t charge you anything if your total is $0.
I didn’t get a box, and that’s probably for the best, but I feel like a dumbass when I buy “meh” branded products and pay for the right to advertise for them, but at least it often sums up my mood, and my doctor really likes my “meh” shirts and I get lots of positive comments (though never from a fellow meh-er). I can’t bring myself to pay for a shirt to advertise for a site I never visit. And I have WAY too many black t-shirts. Not that anyone cared, but heck, that’s what forums are for, right?
@pathfinder1001 I am so glad I do not limit my payments to just PayPal. I would never be able to make payments to the majority of companies I do business with. Hardly any store in the mall accept paypal and my preferred grocery stores dont take it either. It would be a sad life to not ever use my credit card for any purchases – that is what it was designed for and I use it the way it was intended.
I did get the box (and it has shipped) & kept expecting a separate email with the code for the t-shirt as had been indicated. I have scoured my email though & I don’t see anything. I also tried my Daily Steals order number as the coupon code on the off chance that was it, but nope, so not sure where to find it.
This really sucks. Why have an arbitrary deadline? I looked all over for a separate email for the shirt and then I find it today and it is too late!!! Why Couldn’t the email for the t-shirt be with the original email for the mystery box? I’m very annoyed.
