Consideration of Hot Items
I know the hot item topic has been up before. I searched and found it. However the thread is closed and I'm not here to complain about unsavory business practices. I'm here to ask that the hot items be reconsidered. I'll tell you why.
I use -one- e-juice. I have tried hundreds of e-juices and I really cannot find anything else that I can vape. The one e-juice I use is from Vapor4Life, it is called WOW New Menthol. That makes me an eternal customer here since no one else makes anything close to it. My problem is this has been a hot item for awhile now which means it is not available for discounts. I get endless emails - Happy Mother's Day, here is a coupon you can't use! Its... not fair.
I can tell you why its not fair. Some people say that complaining over the coupons is unfair because Vapor4Life is one of the few sites where you can get more than 10% off and they have more promotions, etc. This is pretty much true, I agree. However when the only item you buy is always a hot item, you don't get to use those promotions. It isn't a matter of not being appreciative of the fact they have promotions. Its the matter of always holding a coupon that I cannot use. If they have a promotion and I'm shopping, I would like to use it every once in awhile. So they already have the promotion but I'm unable to gain access to it - that is unfair :)
What I really dislike is that WOW New Menthol is a Hot Item, but New Menthol is not. So I end up sitting there, staring at that one going 'Well maybe I won't have such a big allergic reaction to it this time....' I'm very sensitive to e-liquids and if I get anything outside of the WOW range then I am generally suffering badly. So that leaves me with the option of 1 juice, in 1 type, that is always at a minor discount and unable to use coupons on.
I used to buy 5-10 bottles of this at a time. Now I really can't see that as being efficient. Even when I go 'well I semi-liked another flavor, maybe I'll get a few of those on sale' I go look up WOW Peppermint... its also a hot item.
The reason the hot items are not fair and I'd like them to be reconsidered is that you might have a few customers who only like the hot items and if those items remain that way for too long, then we have to miss out on everything else going on with the site. My last bottle of my new menthol stock is halfway empty so I have no choice but to go order now and try to get free shipping instead of the nice discount I used to. Though I really hope you all consider something more fair to all of your customers when it comes to promotions. I really do appreciate the site, the fact you have promotions, and I love shopping here.
