Duh, of course, etc.
They got all 20-30% off and a goody bag when they left.
Of course the Chinese have the sites up - like teambuy.com.cn.
So here's my bet:
Within a week or two we'll see a site for our part of the world organised by area and products (as in planned to buy) where you can log on and state you plans.
The site would then "auction" the buying power to the local superstores for the product category, asking for a small cut for their own pocket.
The biggest discounts wins, time is set and the potential buyers alerted.
Nifty shift from push-marketing to the real market, the buyers, just have to love it.
Expecting the site name to be along the lines of "flipper.com" or "snapup.org" and that it will have some neat rounded-corners-layout.
Any takers of the bet?
Ah, and yes I forgot, in two years it'll bypass the retailers and become a true distributor by itself and end up being bought by Amazon...
