What type of deals/promotions really reel you in?
I recently bought something online, and my purchase unlocked free shipping for the next 30 days (shipping is usually $9.95). Because of this, I have gone back to the website almost daily to look at new items and have made two more purchases! They got me!
Free shipping feeds my impulse buying habits; the main reason I don't have Amazon Prime is to SAVE me money.
30% off (or more) deals really motivate me to shop. Even 25% off is meh to me, but give me at least 30% and I'll probably buy something.
I hate Buy 1, Get 1 Half Off deals. They never motivate me to buy anything. Buy 1, Get 1 Free deals aren't much of an incentive for me either because I usually want/need just one of whatever it is.
What kind of promotions get you shopping? Early bird specials? Volume discounts ("Buy 6 and get 33% Off!"), free gift with purchase, rewards points? Getting a great price is a given, but retailers use all sorts of promotions to get you to buy more than you probably would. What works on you?
