View Full Version : Publicity for buy.com (comments please)

OK, I know we are always trying to attract bad publicity to people who do bad things to us (and this is totally awesome and the right thing to do). However, I think we should try to get buy.com some good publicity. Of course, we need to wait 2 or 3 more days to make sure they really are sending out all these $50 off $50 orders and then once we are sure of that we should start contacting people. What I am asking is who do you think we should contact and, if you have any suggestions, do you have the contact info? Also, it might be a good idea for someone (I would be willing to do this) write a generic letter that everyone can send to the same people so they get the scope of what buy.com has done. Let me know what you think.

I agree...very honorable if they do indeed honor the $50 off $50. By the way, did you see the financial news story the other day (I think on CNN) about all the e-tailers that are going belly up. Buy.com was mentioned as a likely candidate for bankruptcy within the next year or so. I guess that's what happens when you honor $50 off $50. bummer!
I completely disagree....They would be stupid to let these go through, you are taking advantage of a bug in their system. They are a great retailer, with the best prices anywhere online. Even if they dont let you rip them off, they are among the best online if not THE best....

I second that AJ. Buy.com is a great company already, dot com companies is already having a hard time staying open, we shouldn't make it any harder than it is.
